For your consideration is a two time finalist in the Good-Guys Rod and Custom Association; 2013 Early Pickup Truck of the Year in Texas and Hot Rod of the Year competition at Indy.
This 1935 Ford Hot Rod Pickup Truck was built by Hot Rods By Dean in Phoenix Arizona.
111” wheelbase custom frame with tubular center crossmember and bobbed front and rear rails. Rear end is a Currie Ford 9” w/3:50 gears featuring disc brakes wrapped in So-Cal Speed Shop finned drums. Aldan coilover shocks, four-link and panhard bar finish out the rear suspension.
Foundation of the front suspension is a Superbell I-beam axle tipped with early Ford spindles, while braking is supplied by So-Cal vented drums covering Wilwood Dynalite calipers and proportioning valve. Brakes are applied by the Kugel Komponents 90º swing pedal assembly while the steering is done through a Hot Rods By Dean modified ’35 Ford steering column topped off with a custom ’48 Packard wheel supplied by Dennis Crooks of Quality restorations. The steering column twists the GM power steering running through a Saginaw box.
The custom ’35 Ford runs on Firestone Deluxe Champion/Coker 5.00 and 7.25 rubber which wrap vintage Chrysler Artillery Wheels measuring 16x4 and 16x5.
Powering the ’35 Ford is a sinister looking V8 covered in ‘wet” looking black paint with lots of polished hardware and polished highlights featuring a Moon oval air cleaner and valve covers. The always popular and reliable Small Block Chevy sports 355 CI and is stuffed with a Comp Cam, topped off with an Edelbrock Air Gap intake supporting a 700 CFM massaged Holley four barrel. The over the frame headers are custom from Hot Rods By Dean and feature 2” primary tubes the usher the spent gases through 3” exhaust tubing. To quiet the ride; custom baffles are tucked inside the headers. Bolted to the SBC is a Hughes prepped 700R4 transmission with a 2500 stall all operated by a modified ’40 Ford shift cable.
The all steel ’35 Ford Pickup sports a 3.5” chop and a 4” channel over the frame while out back the bed is filled with custom flat black stained wood. The bed houses two compartments, one for the Optima Battery and one for miscellaneous accessories. Fuel is added through a Hot Rods By Dean gas cap that resides on the drivers side just inside the tailgate that leads to a custom stainless 15 gallon tank.
The grill shell is a chopped and modified ’35 Ford with a custom insert done by Hot Rods By Dean and covering all the sheet metal is a custom mix maroon paint by PPG. Accenting the deep maroon are modified swan neck mirrors, guide headlights with custom mounts and ’39 Chevy taillights. Kerr-West Plating was selected for all the brightwork while Bell Gas filled the openings in the doors and cab. The bed is finished off with a custom roll pan.
The ’35 interior features a number of custom touches beginning with the adaptation of a ’40 Ford dash outfitted with Classic Instruments gauges while Vintage Air A/C controls are hidden behind the ’40 Ford Speaker grill in one of Hot Rods By Dean’s Stash Boxes. American Autowire supplies the needed electrical. The custom bench seat is covered in black leather as are the door panels while the headliner is in cloth; all the interior stitch work was done by Glenn Kramer of Hot Rod Interiors. Sans carpeting, rubber pyramid matting is used to cover the floor, all held in place with custom aluminum strips finished in black Powdercoat.
This is a one off custom hot Rod built by Hot Rods By Dean and can be purchased for a fraction of the build cost.
