West Coast Customs - Stallone's '55 Ford - Part 1
"Street Customs 2" Ep. 12 - Stallone's '55 Ford
Sylvester Stallone's upcoming movie, "The Expendables," pays homage to the
big action flicks of the 1980s and `90s, and will even include our own
California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a cameo role. The film is
set to feature a 1955 Ford F100 truck, which had to be fully restored for
silver screen worthiness.
The customization experts at West Coast Customs would be the ones handling
the restoration efforts. After calling upon WyoTech students Owen Lubenow,
Rusty McClintock, and Matt Myers for assistance, the crew at WCC was able
to churn out three fully restored 1955 Ford F100s: two for the movie itself
and one for Stallone to keep. The ground-up restorations included metal
fabrication work and the installation of a 347-cubic-inch Ford small block
from ATK Engines, which reportedly put out 429 horsepower and 411
pound-feet of torque when fitted with an Edelbrock Total Power Package.
"The Expendables," written and directed by Stallone, features a full
billing of all-star action actors, including Stallone, Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and more. The movie
will be released on April 23, 2010.
65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
