From Barrett-Jackson: Nicknamed “Uno,” this 1963 Ford F-100 unibody custom pickup has spent the last five years being built. Multiple big-name builders and shops have helped mold this vision into a reality. The final touches were completed by Charles “Sleeves” Cimino, formerly of Gas Monkey Garage and the “Fast and Loud” television series, along with paint and interior by Ceballos Customs. At the heart of this custom pickup is the monstrous power plant, courtesy of Roush Yates. This Holley Sniper fuel-injected 547ci big-block V8 was custom-built by Roush Yates and runs on a reliable mild tune putting 515hp to the rear wheels with 645 ft/lbs of torque. The big-block V8 is backed by a TCI 6-speed automatic transmission sending drive through a custom carbon-fiber drive shaft and on to a posi-traction Strange rear end with 3.89 gears. The pickup features custom headers and a 3-inch custom exhaust system with MagnaFlow mufflers that have been covered in Cerakote to ensure years of durability. An Aeromotive fuel pump to keeps this beast fed properly while it breathes through a 100-pound 4-injector throttle body. The engine itself is dressed in many powder-coated parts, is AN fitting-equipped and is also fitted with a Billet Specialties Tru Trac front runner drive belt system. Billet Specialties also supplied the 20- and 22-inch wheels and the custom steering wheel. Wrapping the wheels are 275/30/20 and 335/25/22 Vredestein tires. A Hydro-Boost-powered Wilwood brake package (6-piston front and 4-piston rear) and stainless brake lines provide plenty of stopping power. “Uno” sits on a custom-built, modified chassis that has been completely reinforced and built for road or track. A Roadster Shop front crossmember and RideTech coilovers at all four corners handle the stance and ride. The body was stripped to bare metal, massaged, and smoothed for an extremely clean and straight finish. The gaps are phenomenally fitted and the gloss white paint is accented by satin and gloss black trim. The bed is finished in custom-made aluminum slats airbrushed to look like ebony wood but are much lighter and more durable. The interior was custom finished by Ceballos Customs and features hand-molded Moore & Giles black leather and Alcantara, as well as red diamond stitching accents. A high-end Morel sound system was installed – including speakers, subwoofer and amplifier – that was molded into the interior and sounds amazing. The Satin Black dash features an Ididit steering column, Restomod Air conditioning with heat control panel and custom vents, Dakota Digital gauges, power window switches and push-button start. “Uno” is a one-of-a-kind build completed in November 2021 and will hold up to the highest standards.
