Jason Hill’s Lubbock, Texas based ‘56 F-100 has been named Goodguys 2011 LMC Truck Parts & Accesories Truck of the Year – Late. The award is designed to honor an outstanding ’53 through ’72 vintage tricked out truck. Hill’s two-tone truck qualified as a finalist for this year’s award at the Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway.
Riding on a ground-hugging No Limit Chassis, the hot hauler’s cab and bed got a complete overhaul at Jason’s “Hill’s Hot Rods” shop. Body mods include flush mounted glass in front and back, pancaked roof and hood, radiused doors and extensively reworked fenders and roll pan. The eye catching paint is a custom mix of “spiced rum” and cream applied by Hill’s. Jimmy Davis at JD Glassworks stitched up the gorgeous custom leather upholstery as well as the cool leather dash insert.
Under the pancaked hood lies the heart of the beast – a BOSS 302 from Ford Racing with Holley induction, MSD ignition. The sweet thunder comes through a set of Doug’s Headers and 3” Magnaflow exhaust. The trick wheels are 20” Bonspeed “Quasar’s” wrapped in BFG rubber.
Hill’s truck will be on display inside the “Champion’s Arena” presented by Street Rod Headquarters at the Goodguys 14th Southwest Nationals, November 18-20 in Scottsdale. He’ll receive a customized toolbox courtesy of Snap-on while at the event.
