Recently finished by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff in Escondido, California, Scott Roberts' pickup is deceptively clean and simple. At first glance many of the body modifications go unnoticed-under the custom mixed gold paint are shaved door handles, hidden hinges, and filled stake pocket holes. Inside, Armando's Auto Upholstery in San Jacinto, California, stitched the bone-colored leather interior with gold piping and matching carpet. The foundation for the hauler is a Total Cost Involved chassis with independent front suspension and a 9-inch Ford rearend located by a four-link and airbags are used all around. Earl Floyd built the 276ci Merc Flathead. It's equipped with an Isky 3/4 race cam, Edelbrock heads, a twin two-barrel intake manifold mounting Stromberg '97 carburetors. A Flat-O-Matic mates the engine to a Ford C4 automatic.
