Jud Morgan's 1956 Ford
1956 Ford F-100 owned by Renegades member Jud Morgan from Long Beach, California. Jud removed all the exterior trim and modified the front by installing a Nash grille and headlights. The front splash pan was molded-in and a set of 1954 Buick lenses were installed in the rear. The interior was redone in Naugahyde, the spare tire was covered with tarp. The rear was lowered by de-arching the springs while a dropped axle was installed up front. The car was sported by a 1956 Ford Thunderbird engine. The car was striped and a single spotlight was installed.
In 1958 Jud's Rambler was shown at the Renegades Rod & Custom Motorama in Long Beach, California. In the program the truck was named "The Rambler".
