You are looking and a very nice Street Rod that was built as a street rod and finished in 2000 and titled in 2001. The truck was professionally built with no expense spared. This one of, if not the first, Brookville Roadster Pickup body made. Brookville Roadster is the best all steel maker of 1928-32 Ford bodies. They are made exactly like the originals, with the same thickness steel, and Henry Ford could not tell which is original and that which was made by Brookville. The parts are so exact they are interchangeable with originals. This particular truck was pictured on the front of their sales catalog and transported to many shows around the country to promote sales. The truck at that time was just a well built body and rolling chassis. The truck was sold and the custom build was started. The truck speaks for itself and was built using the finest products and accessories. The truck would cost over $100,000.00 to build today.
I have attached a picture of a current Brookville Roadster Pickup kit to show the basic kit price. Keep in mind the kit price doesn't include fenders, high end components, Motor, transmission,or drive train. As you can see it would be very easy to spend $100,000. I have attached a ton of pictures and a link to a video. The following is an incomplete list I am sure of the major features of the truck:

1932 Roadster Grill, Cowl, and Front Bumper

The list goes on and on and on and I can't remember it all. I am not going to give this car away.

I will assist with loading for your shipper. I live on a nice road and any size truck can get easily to my front door. I will assist with loading the vehicle for shipping. However I will not take the vehicle to a shipping terminal.
You are welcome to come view the vehicle or have someone come inspect it. I will not however let you or your inspector drive this vehicle. I will take you for a test ride but I have too much money invested to let a stranger drive my truck.
The vehicle has won best in show and its latest win was last week with a top 50 win in a very large 60th anniversary show (2nd place to 50th place received same trophy). I was told I was in the top 10.

The Slippery Slope
Wed, 07 Aug 2013 07:59:00 EST
I've had a healthy appreciation for cars that stop since one truly unfortunate incident with a runaway 1971 Lincoln Continental.
It's funny how quickly a party can turn from, "We're all having blast" to "What happened to the front of the house, and how many stitches do you think this is going to take?" Standing in a Mustang salvage shop in Kodak, Tennessee, I couldn't help but feel I had strayed into the latter territory with Ugly Horse. There was a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 plucked from a rear-ended Cobra sitting off to my left. The shelves were lined with second-hand Roush and SVT components galore, but I couldn't stop staring at a set of rotors with the approximate diameter of my chest.
For the last six years, Ford has created a special version of the Mustang with a military aviation theme, and then donated the car to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) to be auctioned off at the annual AirVenture event, also known as The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration. The money raised goes to the EAA Young Eagles program to inspire the "aviation pioneers of tomorrow," and this year's 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition was won with a final bid of $398,000.

Celebrating 60 years of the USAF's Thunderbirds, this Mustang GT is the only one of its kind with a paint job matching the Thunderbirds' F-16 Falcon jets and some Ford Racing performance added on for good measure. Including this car, Ford has helped raise around $2.3 million for the charity with the biggest auction price coming from the first year of the program, the F-22 Raptor-inspired Mustang AV8R from 2008, which sold for $500,000.
It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.
Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.
