This Once Rusted 1954 Ford F100 Now Has A 415-HP V8 And Lots Of Attitude


This is no farmer's truck.

The Ringbrothers, the Wisconsin-based genius restomod duo, has never unveiled a restored pickup truck at SEMA before. Until now, that is. Introducing the “Clem 101,” a truck that started out as a 1954 Ford F100 that’s evolved into a 1956 model thanks to the brothers swapping out the ’54 cab for a ’56. And that was just the beginning of the overhaul. Next on the list was to build the bed from scratch. Even the fenders have been widened and wheel openings narrowed.

The original ’54 front grille has be retained but has been complemented by modified front and rear bumpers with some gorgeous chrome work. The doors have also been touched up with rounded corners while the hand-formed running boards now extend from the front to back fender. An old Ford Crown Victoria’s subframe was also donated for the build, and it was narrowed by five-inches in order to properly fit the truck. This required the front fenders to be moved forward. Also notice the hood and its custom billet hinges. As for the bed, it too has custom tie-down billets. The tailgate is completely machined and there’s a custom-fabricated trailer hitch.

The entire body has been painted in what’s called “Speedy P Green” and rides on a set of staggered wheels, 19-inches up front and 20-inchers at the rear. The interior is entirely modern with a Kicker stereo system, new upholstery and a climate control system. The gauges are also modern tech with a purposely vintage look. Under the hood lies a Ford 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with 415 hp paired to a four-speed automatic. The price? Not listed, but with the right offer, anything is for sale.
