Midas Touch!

This week on PowerNation Courtney features a gorgeous gold colored custom 1952 F-1. Owned by Donnie McMahan, it was his son Shannon who decided to tear it down and rebuild it as a tribute to his dad. Shannon took it down to the frame and sandblasted everything, which was followed by extensive metal work. It has air assist suspension and he refreshed the 351 Windsor and four speed automatic. Future City Hot Rods in West Paducah did all the paint and bodywork, including the new paint: DuPont Hot Hues “Pot of Gold” with “Warm Beer” flake. It rolls on wide whitewalls and Cadillac Sombrero hubcaps. The front end is from a ’48 Plymouth and Shannon inverted the factory grill teeth and added ’56 Olds headlights. The interior is just as nice with the stock seats covered in rolled and pleated nawgahide and the gauges are stock but the steering wheel is from a ’48 Ford sedan. The Tonneau cover also got the rolled and pleated treatment. It just one beautiful build front to end.
