    But, times are changing, and panel trucks are coming into their own. Panel trucks are often used by construction and maintenance contractors and were sometimes configured for ambulance and hearse roles. Although Ford produced prodigious numbers of F trucks throughout the s, it produced very few panel trucks, and their desirability has been low up until more recently. From then on Rusty planned to customize a panel of his own some day, but none of the examples he found were up to snuff, being either too rusted or banged up.

    Some fellas seem to know what lights their fire at an early age. Words like heritage and tradition come to mind, but only skim the surface of something much deeper. But he always had a dream vehicle on his mind. From then on Rusty planned to customize a panel of his own some day, but none of the examples he found were up to snuff, being either too rusted or banged up.

    But he spent the time it took to find this particular truck building up his customizing chops on various rods, mostly Fords, but with the occasional Anglia thrown in to keep things amusing. It seems a friend who knew of his unfulfilled desire saw an ad in the paper of a small town in Kansas, and that set the stage for a road trip.

    What Rusty found was a truck that had been stored for many years and had been kept clean by the original owner until the day came for it to change hands.

    After the stripping was complete, Rusty started with the frame and worked his way out from there. He cut down the bumper-mounting horns by five inches and powdercoated the frame. When all was said and done he had a inch wheelbase. He added a Mustang master cylinder and brake booster to bring the stoppers up to date, hiding the booster under the floorboard to keep the engine bay clean.

    That was followed by some serious bodywork that included filling all the seams, a smoothed firewall, a filled ashtray, and an owner-fabricated flip-open gas access door. Inside, the cargo area was trimmed out with birch slats finished in a rich mahogany stain. The interior was finished in fine leather, and after that it was on to final bodywork and paint. While the paint was drying Rusty focused on the engine. Mike Christian in Jefferson City, Missouri, gets the nod for that little piece of artistry.
