Gotta Do It Yourself
Michael LaVigne, from Franklin, NC, is a DIY kind of guy, especially when it comes to his '54 F100 Ford truck. Michael did all the work from the ground up himself. First, he started off by stripping the Ford down and bringing the frame up to date. Up front, he installed a Volare frontend. In the back he removed leafs until he got the height he wanted. Putting power to the pavement is a Ford 302 motor. He also equipped the truck with power steering and a tilt steering column for comfort. The body is all steel, which has been worked over by Michael. When the surface was glass-like, he sprayed the truck in Viper Red. After two and a half years of work, Michael is more than excited to finally have the Ford on the road-who wouldn't be!
