’51 Ford pickup

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Almost 2 years ago to the day I featured a hand-built aluminium hot rod named Emerald Tide which took it’s styling inspiration from an artist’s painting. Well the same artist has many more paintings and the same builder is creating another awesome car to match one of them. This time it’s a chopped and channeled ’51 Ford pickup going by the name of Lit Up. I know I say this about many builds but the fabrication work in this one really is simply amazing. The word “talent” doesn’t even come close when trying to describe the one-man, metal-morphing, killer-shop-owning, car-building machine they call Jimmy. The custom chassis rails made from laser-cut sheets of flat metal on the first page should give you a fair idea.

CLICK HERE for the full build thread. The car is still unfinished but I will be keeping an eye on it and will definitely post up when it’s complete.

    I saw the Green truck in my home town at the frog follies. This Guy is Very Talented! wish I could have worked with someone with that much Talent and Skill when I was young. I don’t think George Barris or any of the old school Guys have anything on this Guy!
