This week on PowerNation Katie’s featured ride belongs to viewer Dave Schultz from Ohio, it’s his 1963 Ford F100. He got the truck in 1991 and along with his friends rebuilt the truck to what you see now. After cutting away a lot of rust he added an Art Morrison rear clip and a Fat Man Fabrication front end and lowered it all 14 inches. Under the hood a stout 510 cubic inch big block making about 500 horsepower.
It’s painted in PPG Dodge “Viper Blue” but kept the interior looking stock. The problem came when the truck was all done Dave has killer heating issues in the cab with heat moving in from the engine and exhaust. He was stuffing towels and sweatshirts all over the cab to keep the heat from getting in, to no avail. His friend turned him on to Lizard Skin and now after the truck had been built sprayed on both Ceramic Insulation and Sound Control. Problem solved. Once again the automotive aftermarket to the rescue! Check it out this week along with some serious tech from our four shops.
