The Green Machine

In building this vehicle it was ensured that every environmentally friendly attribute is also a custom attribute, as this is a fully customized vehicle. The completely rebuilt engine is a big block Ford 460 with Edelbrock aluminum heads, a tunnel ram, dual liquid propane carburetors many other high performance modifications. What sets this engine apart from many others is the fuel; it runs on 100% liquid propane, which creates next to zero emissions and produces equal to more horse power than pump gas (450 horse power)! Furthermore this extremely beautiful paint job is done with PPG’s Vibrance Envirobase Paint, which offers PPG’s awesome Vibrance colors in a completely VOC compliant paint system. Other environmentally friendly attributes include nitrogen filled tires by Nokian; Nokian is the worlds first tire manufacturer to introduce a production method using earth friendly oils, which means that they are free of toxic chemicals. The truck has handmade copper bedsides & copper bed floor (underneath of bed floor), copper interior trim, a copper grille and a copper engine bay. All of the copper is made from 20 ounce copper sheets from Revere Copper Company (who utilizes 95% recycled material in their manufacturing process).!

As Seen on the History Channel



The truck started from Ford’s “best” year of the
F-100’s, a 1956 Ford F100.
• The one of a kind front end is custom built to
replicate the 1951 Ford F1 pickup and also features a
hand made copper grille
• The smoothed & louvered hood features one of a
kind side tilt hinges as well as copper trim on the
engine bay side to match the engine bay
• The beautifully finished & completely rebuilt
engine & brand new C6 Transmission, which are
painted to match the chassis components (the same
color as the body, but cleared with PPG’s “Soft
Touch flat finish clearcoat) sits inside the one of a
kind engine bay that is completely finished in
handmade copper panels
• The doors have been converted to suicide hinges
and smoothed outer door panels they also feature
power windows along with custom made saddle tan
& black leather door panels as well as copper inserts
to match the exterior paint work of the truck
• The inside of the cab also flaunts many impressive
body modifications. Such as a smoothed dash that is
molded with the custom made center console, which
is also molded with the rear of the cab and houses the
switches that operate the power windows, the air ride
and the tilt bed as well as the cd/dvd player. The
underneath of the dash has been modified to house
the JL Audio subwoofers and the kick panels have
also uniquely been molded to the truck, they house
the JL Audio speakers. The seats are matching saddle
tan and black leather and are fully functional swivel
seats! Furthermore the interior of the cab features 3
DVD screens, 1 in each sun-visor and 1 in the dash.
The steering wheel, which was built for the truck is
copper anodized and black leather wrapped to match
the wheels, it is mounted on a custom tilt steering
column which is painted to match the truck.


• The interior is completely upholstered in saddle
tan & black leather with a black carpet that has sewn
in matching leather inserts
• The bed is a fully functional electric hydraulic tilt
bed, with a reverse open tailgate that also has hand
made aluminum latches.
• The rear of the bed is finished with a one piece
molded roll pan that houses the original style taillight
lenses, which have been uniquely molded into the roll
• The bed tilts to expose the amazing underneath of
the truck. From the “quick disconnect” exhaust
system, which allows the exhaust system to exit
through the custom molded exhaust tips in the rear
fenders (this process alone involved roughly 5-6
weeks of labor and design time), to the hand made
copper underside of the bed. Furthermore you are
able to view the custom painted chassis (which
features 4 wheel disc brakes & air ride suspension) &
all rear chassis components. Such as the hydraulic
system, air compressor & tank, the 4 link air ride
rear suspension, the custom built Ford 9 inch rear
end & the very impressive 3 inch polished stainless
steel exhaust system. Another impressive feature that
can be viewed when the box is raised are the copper
& stainless steel braided wiring and lines throughout
the chassis.
• The top side of the box showcases the painted to
match liquid propane tank, which was built for this
vehicle and is completely surrounded by hand made
copper panels that trim the box sides.

The truck can be shown with its custom built display. The display includes: copper covered light boxes, copper tubing side rails, copper side panels, which encircle the podium that the truck is parked on, 3 mirrors that fit inside the podium, and complete black carpeting (which is even made from recycled bottles, to add to the theme of the truck).
