1935 FORD PICKUP | KENT KEYSER | PENRYN, CA

Street Rodder - - Tech -

Clas­sic trucks weren’t so pop­u­lar in 1967 when Kent’s fa­ther bought this ’35 Ford for $25. The truck was for Kent, then 14, who spent five years build­ing it from pieces with his dad’s help. In 2012, he turned to Ro­seville Rod & Cus­tom to re­build the pickup. The orig­i­nal ’rails are equipped with a TCI fron­tend and par­al­lel leaves in the rear. Finned valve cov­ers and air cleaner add traditional fla­vor to the Chevy ZZ4. A TREMEC TKO five-speed and Cur­rie 9-inch Posi rearend get the rear 15-inch Gen­nie wheels turn­ing. The stock sheet­metal was shaved of driprails and fin­ished with deep black PPG paint. Ze­bra wood was used for the bed floor. The in­te­rior is up­hol­stered in oxblood leather.
