This project is going to get built for SRT Designs Ltd. This will be the company vehicle demonstrating all the performance products they use and sell. The Hot Rod pickup (aka CONFUSED) will attend shows when completed. 

Donor vehicle, chassis & body

The running gear needed to be reasonably economical and have plenty of torque for the amount of towing this would be doing. It was deceided to get a donor vehicle so we could use as much as the running gear, suspension and interior as possible. The chosen vehicle was a 2006 Jaguar S-Type with a V6 2.7 litre twin turbo engine. The car was purchased in February and used for a couple of months to ensure everything was running and working correctly.

In March a 1932 Ford Model B cab, doors, visor, grill and bonnet was purchased for Tribute Automotive. Four weeks later we were picking this up. Whilst waiting for the body to be made a pair of geniune Amercian Stamped chassis rails were purchased which had just been boxed in. Also, a pair Spreader Bars (front and rear) with spacers were purchased from Speedway Motors. This would save a bit of time during the construction and give us a good start.

The Vision

In February 2018 it was decided to make a Hot Rod pickup for SRT Designs Limited to be used as their company vehicle showcasing their performance products they sell online together with their custom made interior aluminium door panels. A 1932 Ford Model B pickup truck with modern (ish) running gear was the chosen concept. The colour will be red possibly with a distressed look and a black stripe (or two) through the centre.
