    I was over at my buddies place this weekend to do a little wrenching on my truck. I brought my camera knowing Ole' Phantom John here had a few cherried out old vehicles. This one here is a '57 Ford F-150. It has a T-Bird engine in it, a 326 I think, with a four barrel, headers, and dual exhaust, hooked up to an automatic tranny. He bought it in a junk yard for $500, and has had a frame off restoration done on it. Pretty cool old truck...

    Nice, but why not an original paint job?

    I have no idea what an original would look like. I thought that was original.

    Ole' Phantom is lost in the fifties and pretty much does his own thing. Quite possibly this is just the way he wanted it painted.

    But, are you sure it's an F150. Only asking, because we have a 1963 Ford F100 at the Glass Shop I now work at. Not as nice as that one looks though.

    Could be an F-100 pegwinn. I'm not sure. I'm not a Ford man or an authority on old Ford's.

    Chevy all the way.
