Big Red - 1956 Ford F100...

Studebaker Pickup Truck – on air, low and slow….

This Studebaker has sat around here at Farm Fresh by the previous owners for some time and we (the new team, also knows as the A-Team) are putting the build together to make not only a sweet restoration but a radical styled ride that oozes charisma all the while restored to a very high standard.

 
Engine & Gearbox

We have a crate Small Block Chevy from Blueprint which is a stroker and has been pre run in and dyno checked and has a spec sheet showing over 350bhp. Coupled with a crate TH350 auto transmission this is the perfect set up in our opinion. Reliable from day one and the perfect set up for a small block.  

Suspension

Viair, the best air ride compressors around. We will be fitting the full air ride system to be Viair and Firestone bags. It has to be on air. We will be fitting a Mustang 2 independent front suspension set up, power assisted steering, upgraded brakes to a disc and calliper set up. The Mustang 2 kit is a CPP kit which as amazing kits comprising of 9 boxes and of an outstanding standard. 

Brakes

New front brake pads and discs, with servo assisted all from CPP

Wheels

Detroit Steels – Smoothies in 20inch with low profile tryes…

Interior

Starting with Dynamat obviously, then fitting a full brand new EZ wiring loom, a brand new retro style Custom Autosound stereo, new Dolphin gauges, and a fully custom interior with leather and suede trim to compliment.
