1956 Ford F-100 owned by John Wieira of California. In the rear, a handmade splash pan was made to fill the gap between the body and the reworked 1949 Dodge bumper. 1946 Chevrolet truck taillights were mounted with modified Ford brackets. The car was painted Jewel red with white LeMans-type stripes, which drawed immediate attention to the truck. A 3-inch dropped axle was installed up front with reworked springs to give it a forward rake. The wheels, running boards, and exhaust stacks were chromed. The interior was done in white Naugahyde with blue trim.[1]
