    Okay, if you guys were going to build a old school 60's custom truck... think Starbird, Watson shop trucks or customs... what ideas would you incorporate? Wheels, caps, wheel wells, grill treatments, tail light treatments, interior treatments... If you were going to build one today... say a best of the best...

    I think the one with the side tilted hood was actually from that era.
    the red one is green/black/in scallops now.

  14. That is a 54? f100 that was built by a friend of mine Merc John about 20 years ago. Has a nomad tail gate and a see throught hood. He still has it but he has not taken it out in a few years. Have some pics of it and will post them when i find them.

    This is my 53 f100. We built it about 15 years ago repainted it about 6 years ago

    Some ideas for 60's styling off the top of my head, not in any particular order:

    quad lights (see ALL above pics), even better with tucked in front fenders
    rolled pans
    asymmetrical accents (scoops, peaks, License plate openings, etc...)
    pinner white wall tires (BIAS PLY!!!)
    chrome wheels (reverse, mags, etc..)
    scavenger pipes (look killer on pick ups)
    bubble tops (if you want to enter the ultra radical)
    bucket seats with full length consoles
    metalflakes, pearls, panel paint jobs
    radiused wheel openings
