Lot #662 - Showcasing "Wild Fire." This one-of-a-kind 1962 F-100 was built with no expense spared. It's a magnificent show quality truck that is very detailed from top to bottom. Everything on this truck is new and in excellent condition. This was a complete rotisserie restoration with a lot of fabrication work. The body was taken to bare metal and a Chevy step side bed was fabricated on the rear. The body is extremely straight with excellent panel fitment. The truck was painted with Silkens orange and yellow. The color scheme is where the name Wild Fire came from. This is a very high-end paint job that is ocean deep. Some custom exterior features include the grille work, headlights, chrome wiper arms, louvered smooth tailgate, third brake light on cab, smooth inner bed panels with maple wood bed floor and stainless bolts, rear bumper, taillights and emblems. It's wrapped in Panther 20" chrome wheels with brand new tires that give it a great stance. The exterior is complimented by a custom interior. The dash and inner door panels are painted yellow to match the exterior. Some interior features include Mustang 6-way power seats, Haneline Genesis gauges, Pro Comp temp gauge, Grant GT steering wheel, headliner, center console with cup holder and armrest with storage, heater box, JVC sound system with two enclosed speaker boxes and custom wood box for storage. The engine compartment was painted in a gray metallic and is very detailed. It houses a completely rebuilt 390cid big block that runs and sounds excellent. Some engine features include an Edelbrock intake and 4 barrel carburetor, Mallory distributor, MSD ignition system and diamond plate battery box. The engine is coupled with a C6 automatic transmission with shift kit and external oil cooler. The power hits the pavement through a Ford 9" rear end with 2.51 gears. This truck sits on a custom chassis. Some of the features include power steering, power brakes, lower springs, gas shocks, urethane bushings and stainless gas tank. The undercarriage of this truck is highly detailed and mirror quality. This truck is extremely reliable and can be driven anywhere.
