Bentley's ExtReme '55 F100
If you all remember Bentley's super clean '68 Nova we did a couple years ago, (Click Here for Nova Pics) well we're back at it with another project to fill his garage!
The Nova had some real sentimental value, Bentley's dad had a red '68 when he was younger and so he wanted to build one like it, only a pro Touring version, for himself. The F100 on the other hand wasn't something he really thought much of owning, it just sort of happened to fall into his hands.
Now, you all have seen the fantastic performance we were able to get out of our honest street truck ExtReme chassis'ed '67-72 C10, and Bentley's got similar performance expectations for his fat fendered ride. Much like Darwin's survival of the fittest concept, we feel the same about our ExtReme products and yet another opportunity to adapt and evolve into something better has presented itself. With that said, Bentley's F100 will become the predecessor to a new line of ExtReme 50's F100 Chassis systems!
As you can see we're starting with what looks to be a mild maybe early 90's local car show level build that got some blingy 20" wheels slapped on it somewhere along the way. Besides looking a bit outdated, there are some areas where the body work is falling apart and rust is starting to form. Little things like weatherstrip etc. are also starting to fall apart. Bentley's got a little different taste than the salmon pink earlier days vibe, so check in along the way and follow along as we completely rebuild this ol' grass sittin' at the car show grandpa into a lean and mean serious street machine!
