When Jerry bought the truck it screamed '40 Ford, which was what he wanted, but not exactly how he wanted it. Long story short, changes were in order, and Mr. D's was the firm summoned to make it happen. First up, taillights. Jerry wanted to install a pair of frenched '49 Ford taillights in the rear fenders, only he wanted these taillights to sit horizontal, as opposed to vertical. From there the tailgate was re-skinned with a piece of 16 gauge sheetmetal that received a trip on Sir Michael's louver punch. Instead of leaving the bedsides be, Jerry had little bullets welded to the ends of the bedrails for a unique look. The truck was then shaved clean of all emblems, trim, door handles, and the like. To match the rear, the hood also received louvers. Another custom "Jerry touch" is the frenched and sunken antenna residing in the right-front fender. Since Jerry first purchased the truck, at the turn of the millennium, it has been several colors; the latest is Jerry's favorite. Since he was a fourth grader gawking over custom cars and hot rods, he had always carried the image of '50 Oldsmobile Crest Blue in his mind, therefore he had Mr. D's shoot the truck in the subtle ostentatious hue. Once painted there was still something missing, pinstriping. Jerry had Kim Dedic apply his touch to just about every panel on the truck, which really set things off. The final touch was a set of 15-inch Cragar Smoothies.
Inside the cab is just as eye-catching. Jerry used a set of '66 Mustang bucket seats as the center of the interior. From there the entire interior was recovered in blue and white vinyl by Henry's Upholstery in La Habra, California. Gracing the dash of the '41 is an engine-turned inset that houses a combination of Classic Instrument and VDO gauges. In place of the factory column is a Limeworks column and Banjo steering wheel. The truck was defiantly a new adventure for Jerry, and every day he leaves the house piloting the blue Booze cruiser is just another journey on a never ending adventure.
