Jim Brubaker’s ’56 Ford

We have no doubt that truck enthusiast Jim Brubaker’s pearl, ghost-flamed ’56 F-100 big-window pickup is to win its fair share of Oscars on the car circ, er, make that, show circuit. It’s got quality written all over it!

You Brubaker is used to dealing class acts. As President of Production for Universal Pictures, Big Jim nothing less than from all those around so it should come as no surprise the movie mogul expects the when it comes to his hobby.

industry veteran Dennis De gets the credit for spearheading the build on the F-100, which due to the state of flux, has oftentimes described as a work in progress. For the chassis beneath Brubaker’s features a fully chromed and Tri-C Engineering-prepared Kugel IRS outfitted with Air Ride ShockWaves, and a pair of highly Wilwood Engineering disc all proudly displayed beneath a thick laminated safety pickup bed floor. If it’s reading that, imagine responsible for putting it together! Up the Effie features another Kollaboration: a polished and chrome-plated again sporting Air Ride’s a set of Wilwood disc brakes, and a Kugel-prepared Mustang

II rack-and-pinion steering unit. and tires on the ’56 come in the of 18- and 20-inch Rallys from wrapped with Toyo radial rubber.

When it came to selecting the powertrain, Jim wisely elected to put a in a Ford. Underneath that tilting F-100 hood, you a highly detailed and polished Granatelli-machined and assembled, 2002-vintage 351W EFI engine. Internally, the Ford medium-block features a set of compression JE pistons along a set of ARP-equipped 351W connecting and a cast-iron 351W crank on Clevite engine bearings. along for the ride is a COMP roller cam and kit along with a high-volume oil pump.

Ignition duties are by an MSD Pro-Billet 351W ignition firing a set of
