Hill’s Hot Rods and JD Glassworks Reassemble This Classic Ford Hot Rod Truck Creation

Reassembling a custom truck project represents a milestone in the build process. As you turn every wrench and cinch down each bolt you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel—your project will soon be a stunning, low rolling reality. Suddenly all those late nights thrashing and transforming something from a battered basket case into a show-stopping head turner pay off as you get closer to turning the key, pulling the shifter into gear, applying pressure to the accelerator, and driving a truck that once seemed like it would never be road worthy again.

Back in 2007, Street Trucks launched the build series known as Project Fast Lane, a ‘56 Ford F-100 project that we aimed to build into a hot rod-styled classic truck project. Hill’s Hot Rods in Lubbock, Texas, took on the task of building the truck with interior and audio work to be handled by JD Glassworks. It all started with a guide in the August 2007 issue about how to find the right project truck, and from there each installment addressed the various stages of a frame-off custom truck project. We took you through everything from the teardown and sheet metal dip and strip to chassis fabrication and set up, drive train installation and set up, metal repair and custom bodywork, interior panel building and fabrication, and in recent months up to the finished paint work on the chassis, cab and body panels. Last month we showed the design and spray of the PPG two-tone paint scheme. This month we’ll see the truck transformed back into one piece, as body panels are bolted on, glass is installed, audio components are hooked up, upholstery panels are wrapped, and the Hill’s Hot Rods/JD Glassworks crew tightens down the final screws to complete Project Fast Lane.
