Turbo 350 automatic transmission with a 9 inch Ford POSI rear end, ET wheels, gassers in the front, fuelers in the rear."
"My truck was built in 60's style hot rod theme. I'm a big pin-up girl fan and had a painting of Betty Page done on the inside of the truck bed by a close artist friend of mine. Just an all around fun vehicle to out and enjoy. Couldn't have done it with out the help of fellow Club members Harold and Sharon Moore." ...see Betty Page below.
