1966 Ford F100
1966 Ford F100 Pickup with Camper
Under the category of now I must have seen everything, I will never under-estimate the creative mind, and its limitless possibilities when it comes to car customization. Car makers go to great lengths to come up with designs that are practical, ergonomic, and have great looks to boot. That said ladies and gentlemen I give you “Ultimate Retro Glamping”
Born from a 1966 Ford F100 totally disassembled, then put back together with style, we can see a rebuilt Ford 302ci fuel injected engine, with aluminum finned valve covers and air cleaner. Under which is an Edelbrock E Street Series fuel injection system, MSD ignition, a Champion radiator, all stuck into a custom fabbed engine bay with a shaved firewall. Bolted to this mill is an AOD transmission, a shift kit, and actuated by a Lokar Shifter. Also, a hidden brake booster, and disc brakes will bring this rig to a quick halt. Underneath we see a custom fabricated independent front suspension, as well as a 4-link rear suspension and a 9” rear. Driven by an engine compressor, an E-Level Accuair suspension, with i level interface (iPhone compatible) raises and lowers this bagger literally to the ground from a low ride height.
Custom upholstered seats featuring rag-rolled patterned rust uppers, a tan midsection, and stitched ribbed white lower backing and seat. Also, a custom fabricated steering wheel with a mini Dagmar in the center fronts an exterior matching painted dash, that houses Dolphin Gauges within an upholstery matching Vanilla Pearl field. A chromed adjustable column is also seen upfront. Headliner and cabin panels are the continuation of the rust rag rolled pattern vinyl, and door panels show visually the continuation of the pattern.
Exterior is emblazoned with base-coat green/gold metallic paint with a satin clearcoat, and tri coat Vanilla Pearl paint provides the highlights that are pinstriped on the truck. A raised aluminum bed airbrushed to emulate bright rosewood, creates the bed of this beauty.
Also attached and bagged is the replica 1969 Alpine Sprite Camper in full Coca-Cola style. Unbelievably this camper was built new from scratch from the original specs from 1969...how cool is that??!! It started with a 2” x 4” powder coated steel chassis, held up by a Dexter axel and 4-link suspension with airbags. Walls were constructed from 2 x 2 aluminum studs and .083 aluminum sheeting. At the front of the camper is an oversized Coke “Cooler” which actually houses the 5hp generator and air conditioner for the trailer. Creature comforts for that sing around the campfire include new appliances like a microwave/popcorn maker, a hot roller, and refrigerator. Custom upholstery is seen throughout, as well as true hardwood floors. Soda fountain style swivels are in front of a bar which allows the users to gaze into the sunsets, as they enjoy music from a mini Wurlitzer that doubles as a light show. Plenty of hidden stowage throughout, some custom cabinets, a sink, and a bed. All tucked neatly under a triangulated tin ceiling...you just can't make this stuff up!! Now that's GLAMPING! Go ahead, I dare you to show me your pop out Prevost Pusher.
