Timeless The Hot Rod
This car is the brainchild of Rich and Paige Udell of Swan Lake, Montana. Quality time was spent with Jimmy Smith of Jimmy Smith Hot Rod Designs who was able to capture the concept that we wanted to attain in his renderings of the car. Because of the nature of this car, every part and piece needed to be engineered and fabricated, beginning with the chassis, the full floating front suspension, the full custom rear suspension, the unibody construction, the stretch of the car, the mating of the sheet metal from 3 body styles, the hand-made one-off body panels, the design for the magnetic door and hood fasteners, down to the point where we even cut down a late model Chrysler windshield to have the curvature that was desired for this car. It is obvious that the degree of difficulty of this car far exceeds the imagination and part of the concept of this car is 'THE MORE YOU LOOK, THE MORE YOU SEE."

132897 / 1956 Ford F100
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7hjvms2 With an unlimited budget, amazing things are possible, and this astounding 1956 Ford F100 is the result of one man's vision, determination, and one hell of a big check. And while it may look like a familiar pickup truck, there isn't a single component anywhere on this truck that hasn't been modified, smoothed, polished, or created from scratch, and today it is a hand-made piece of rolling sculpture that merely looks like a '56 Ford. The fenders have been smoothed, the hood and roof elaborately sectioned and welded back together to create a flatter profile, and details like the fender lips have been tweaked to make it unlike anything else you've ever seen before. Other details include a custom made bed that's three inches wider and three inches shorter than a stocker. Of course, fit and finish are as perfect as such things can be, with thousands of hours tied up just in getting the body to fit as precisely as possible. Then there's the paint, which is a subtle two-tone green that will never go out of fashion. In thirty years, this truck will still look as stunning as it does today, which is a tribute to the builder's taste as much as his skill. There are, of course, no ripples or signs of orange peel in the paint, which has been massaged, polished, and buffed to a stunning shine that is distortion-free no matter where you look, even in the door jambs and under the hood. And while the bed is still wood like it was originally, it is now made of exotic South African Lace wood stained a wonderful mahogany color and detailed with stainless steel rub strips. Power comes from a General Motors Performance Parts 454 cubic inch big block V8, which cranks out a towering 425 horsepower. Thanks to a set of custom-made valve covers featuring emblems inspired by the original Ford pieces, and a trick intake shroud, it looks completely custom. All the wiring and plumbing has been artfully hidden and tucked out of sight, and even things like the welds on the radiator are precise enough to survive close scrutiny. Plenty of engineering went into the build, so it runs and drives as you would expect, with a ferocious wallop of torque and a rumbling idle. If you just have to drive it, you certainly can and without worries about its roadworthiness. More hand-fabricated components live underneath, thanks to a Fatman Fabrications frame with a Mustang II independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Out back, a traditional four-link holds the Ford 9-inch rear off the ground, and the 3.70 gears inside give it plenty of bit off the line without making cruising a chore. A built 700R4 4-speed automatic handles gear changes, and the overdrive allows it to loaf along at highway speeds. Airbags at all four corners allow ride height to be adjusted on the fly without affecting ride quality, and it glides along the pavement like a hovercraft. Disc brakes with cross-drilled rotors have been fitted at all four corners, and are visible through the spokes of the custom-made 20-inch Budnik GTX wheels wearing low-profile BFGoodrich tires. Climb inside and you'll easily forget that this was once a pickup truck, as the custom made green leather interior wraps around you and your passenger. There's not a single production part left inside, and even the 2006 Nissan Altima gauges were custom modified just for this truck. Beautifully stitched seats, door panels, and even floor mats create a unified theme, and you'll note that the paint job details even wrap around the door frames and continue inside the truck. A custom center console with a waterfall effect between the seats was fabricated, and houses the shifter and controls for the Vintage Air A/C system. I think you'll agree that calling this art is not an exaggeration. So is this 1956 Ford F100 art? Well, it's certainly more than just a truck. It takes more than cubic dollars to build a vehicle of this caliber (although that's definitely a primary ingredient), it also takes vision, time, skill, talent, and dedicationPeople pay millions for art to hang on their walls, surely this piece of art that stands in your garage is worth it, too.
