“Can I take a picture in it?” That question gets asked of you about 15 times every time you hit the streets in this radical little custom show truck, nd for good reason…most people have never SEEN something so crazy and cool cruising down the street!
This truck is the famous MAN MADE LEGENDS Shop Truck, uilt back when original owner John Sad was still at the helm of the NC Hot Rod and Restoration Specialist. If you’ve read a rod, ulture, r customizing magazine in the last few years, ou’ll surely recognize the name, s both the original team and the new owners have managed to turn out some of the koolest rides this side of the Mississippi over the years.
This particular truck is a melding of classic old patina style and aging techniques combined with a quality build out to create a truck that is reliable and fun to drive, ut with all the crazy appeal of a “Rat Rod” on top of it.
The first thing that gets you is the appearance. It looks like it has been sitting in the back 40 for 50 years, nd seems like it would blow away in a dust of rust with a strong wind, ut on closer inspection you realize that it is a real, olid, teel body that has been painstakingly customized to LOOK old!
How they do it is a shop secret, ut take a look at all of the large photos I have provided and you will see that the truck has about as perfect a patina as you could get outside of Mother Nature.
The patina treatment extends from the body to the chassis, o most of the components on the car, nd even goes under the hood to the carefully treated engine and engine bay! From the inside out, nd front to back, his truck gives off an appearance like it has sat outside since Henry Ford built it!
Grab a magnet, nd you’ll be amazed at how solid everything is, nd how much effort was put into making sure all the doors, ood, nd other parts lined up and fit.
No bondo patches, o chicken wire, o crushed up beer cans… just Henry steel combined with a vivid imagination and extremely talented fabrication and finish work.
Wood bed rails, ed floor, nd fuel tank cover are all solid wood, nd each plank was carefully treated and aged to make sure it didn’t look out of place on the truck.
Real Surf Boards grace the top of the roof, nd are bolted, crewed, nd strapped into place to keep them intact on high-speed runs from Johnny Law.
Original windshield visor is intact, nd the windshield moves fore and aft to let additional ventilation in.
Hood has functional aged leather straps in place to “hold it down”, ut in reality, he front latch and attachment screw for the belt makes sure NO ONE steals a glance at the engine bay unless you want them to.
Chrome mirrors on each side of the truck provide good views for the driver, nd are practically the only bit of shiny bright stuff on the truck!
Wheels are perfectly aged as well, nd wrapped in BF GOODRICH Silverstone wide white wall bias-ply tires that have been purposefully NOT kept clean to go with the rest of the rides look.
Everything from the suspension front and rear was purposefully aged and patina finished to keep the look going as well, ut as you can see in the pictures, t is all clean, olid, nd fully functional beneath it all.
Custom striping throughout the truck looks amazing, nd has been carefully aged as well so it doesn’t stick out. All of the logos and striping are hand-painted and look perfect on the truck!
Everything from the rear bumper, ardware gate chains, ights, ven the Coca-Cola bottle opener on the right rear of the bed… were all PURPOSEFULLY aged so that they fit the look and feel of the entire build.
Back of the cab has a wood-framed license plate holder, ut it does NOT have a plate light, o if your State requires one on classic cars, lan accordingly.
The only other bit of chrome on the truck appears to be the vintage Chrome Lady lying on the fuel tank over. She is bolted down to keep thieving hands at bay!
Rear glass has a little crack in it, ut the windshield is crack and issue free.
Chassis is primarily stock style components, hich have all been aged accordingly in appearance, ut function quite well.
Drum brakes all around stop the truck with ease, nd with a minimal amount of feedback to the driver.
Shocks and springs work together nicely to provide a good ride, nd you won’t chatter your teeth out on a highway cruise or rolling over a speed bump.
A Ford 302CI V8 of unknown origin rests under the hood, nd is a very mild stock build, ith no radical internal components, ostly stock parts inside and out, complete absence of billet and chrome, nd a perfectly done patina on everything from the air cleaner to the block.
It dripped a couple of drops after driving on the shop floor, o we tightened the oil and trans pan bolts and it stopped. Other than that, t is leak, eep, nd drip free.
It is not a smoker, nd has no known issues at this time. It starts right up, dles cleanly, nd appears to be tuned very well.
Again, his is NOT a radically built motor. It was kept as close to stock as possible for reliability, ase of maintenance, nd problem-free ownership. You can get practically anything the trucks powertrain needs at your local auto parts store, nd it is a perfect vehicle for someone who lacks mechanical ability because ANY local garage can work on it for you.
It is mated to a Ford 3-speed automatic transmission with a basically stock configuration, o shift kit, nd no stall converter. It shifts smooth and easy in all gears, nd combined with the smoothed 9” FORD rear end and its 3.73 gearing, rovides more than manageable cruising speed to get you around town and to the next show. They even added weld bumps to the rear axle to make it look like it would have if someone narrowed it back in the day!
This is NOT an Interstate cruising Power Tour car, ut it is perfectly suited to cruise at 55mph and head to the next town for cruise night.
Cooling system is a stock set-up, ith a larger radiator and bigger fan. It stays cool when cruising, nd lays at about 194 degrees when driving it. Get stopped for longer than 10 minutes in one place, ike I did heading to the Island in it, nd she will reach about 210 degrees, ut quickly drops back down the second you start moving. All in all, pretty cool running little machine considering the fact it doesn’t carry an auxiliary electric fan on board!
I have had the pleasure of cruising this truck about 60 miles total, nd it is a BLAST to drive! Drive. That is an important word, ecause between the bias ply tires and stock style suspension you actually need to DRIVE this thing! No time for selfies or using the rear-view to pretend you’re Caitlyn Jenner…it is all gas, rake, teer, nd go with this machine! It is so much fun to drive, nd you will be amazed at the attention it gets!
All of the lights work, ncluding headlamps, ail lamps, nd signals.
The interior of the truck is just as radical as the exterior, nd has so much going on if you blink you’ll miss something!
Aluminum aircraft bomber seats have been properly aged and fit with a burlap/boat vinyl seat cushion for comfort and protection from the elements.
Floor is all steel with exposed rivets, nd all of it has been acid-etched and painted with rustoleum for looks and protection.
Door panels, ick panels, nd rear panel are all covered in bamboo shade material, hich not only looks great, ut keeps with the “Water? No problem!” them of the interior!
Steering wheel is a vintage something, nd looks super cool while providing more than enough acreage to steer this beast with.
Dash is original, ith original center pod, ut the key switch has been done away with in favor of a switch and push-button starting procedure.
Vintage turn signal control box is mounted on the stock-style column.
Center console was custom made, nd housed the custom made shifter and housing.
The gauge pod unit was created from a block of wood that was custom worked to hold the gauges for Speedometer/Odometer, IL, EMP, UEL, nd VOLTS. Everything seems to be working as it should, xcept for the Speedo, hich the prior owner said needs a cable attached between it and transmission.
Column mounted Tachometer is functional and looks great too.
Control panel on lower left of dash houses switchgear for the truck, nd works like it should.
Doors shut tight, nd the wood-topped levers open and close them solid and surely.
This is NOT a back-yard built junker that you can’t even take down the block.
This is a PRO-BUILT rod that was made to look old and ratty, ut is extremely clean, olid, nd well-constructed when you get past the paint.
I have had a blast driving it out to the Island for a cruise night, nd just zipping around town in it, nd find it to be about as fun to drive as you could ask for.
People absolutely LOVE IT. Men, omen, ld, oung… it seems like everyone wants to take a picture with it, dmire how nice it is once they get up close and really start examining it.
If you want a radical looking truck that can win you a prize at a car show, rive you the next town for cruise night, nd make YOU a legend in your town, his is the truck for you!
