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:

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.

Word coming in from across the pond has it that Ford is working on developing the business case to create a new Fiesta RS. The development is encouraged by the extremely positive reception the existing Fiesta ST has garnered to date, and the emergence of the above-pictured Fiesta RS WRC rally car, but it'll take more than goodwill to make a more extreme version a reality.
Wed, 11 Jun 2014 11:58:00 EST
According to Auto Express, a new roadgoing Fiesta RS would almost certainly be based closely on the ST version, albeit with some vital differences. Its 1.6-liter turbo four would be increased from 180 horsepower to somewhere around 230 hp, and that powertrain would be accompanied by lightweight alloys inside blistered wheel arches, a stripped-out interior and possibly lightweight bodywork.
The vehicle's approval would reportedly require a strong business case in Europe, and not just in the UK where Ford hot hatches traditionally enjoy a strong following. It's unclear whether the Fiesta RS would potentially make the transatlantic voyage to American showrooms, but between it and the larger Focus RS, hopefully the Blue Oval wouldn't leave its home market out of the action altogether.
As a segment, fullsize vans are stealth-fighter invisible on most consumers' radar. Visit a dealership for any of the four brands that offer them and you'll be lucky to find even one on display. These are commercial vehicles primarily, even more so than pickup trucks. Vans are the shuttles for plumbers, caterers, carpenters, concrete layers, masons, electricians, florists and flooring, and a huge part of this country's productivity is accomplished using them. At the moment, Ford is the 800-pound gorilla in that room - fully 41 percent of commercial vehicles wear a Blue Oval. So when Ford announced three years ago it would be ditching its commercial bread-and-butter E-Series, it meant the Transit that would be replacing the Econoline had huge, 53-year-old shoes to fill.

We were still a bit nostalgic about Econoline vans going away until going directly from the Transit first drive in Kansas City to an E-350 airport shuttle. Climb up through the Econoline's tiny double doors and bang your head on the opening, crouch all the way to your seat then enjoy a loud, rattle-prone, creaky, harsh ride on beam-hard seats while struggling to see out the low windows. This is an experience nearly every traveler has had. By comparison, the Transits we'd just spent two days with were every bit of the four decades better they needed to be. It cannot be understated just how much better the Transit is in every single way. The load floor is barely more than knee high. There's a huge side door, and hitting your head on a door opening is nearly impossible. Stand up all the way if you're under six-foot, six-inches - no more half-hunching down the aisle. There are windows actually designed to be looked out of. The ride is buttery smooth, no booming vibration from un-restrained metal panels and no squeaks. Conversations can be held at normal levels rather than yelling over the roar of an ancient V8. The seats are comfortable. The AC is cold. There are cupholders.
Enough anecdote-laying, what's in a Transit? We're talking about a very fullsized unibody van that's enjoyed a 49-year history in Ye Olde Europe. This latest iteration is part of the "One Ford" initiative, so it was designed as a global offering from the get-go, eschewing the body-on-frame construction the E-Series has used since 1975. Instead, the Transit integrates a rigid ladder frame into an overall frame construction made of high-strength cold-rolled and boron steel. The suspension is a simple but well-tuned Macpherson strut array up front with a rear solid axle and leaf springs.
