Ive always loved Ford Bonus pickups, but they’re a touch too truck like,” says Paul Bailey. Understandably, the man is not afraid to shape metal to suit his dreams, so he’s gone into great depths to let us know what he’d do to the bodywork to get it to suit his tastes. That work would include moulding the front bumper into the front guards for a much smoother look that would extend towards the rear, where any metal deemed to be too sharp or protruding too far would be given a good trim. Those mods are simple compared with the larger body alterations, which would include chopping three inches out of the roof height and nosing the bonnet by a couple of inches to match. To accentuate the pickup’s smooth lines, it’d be dropped on its arse thanks to airbags all round, which, as we know, would mean fitting a fourlink in the rear and an aftermarket suspension assembly up front. Atop that front end would be a blown 572-cube big block, backed by a manual box — for added tyre smoke, of course. Wrapped around 20x15-inch rims, that’d be some expensive smoke, too, but, thankfully, Paul’d save a bit of cash by clear-coating the metalwork rather than shelling out for a proper paint job. Of course, for now, this is all just a dream — but we know how dreams like this often turn out!
