House of Kolor Organic and Planet Kandy Green paint is accented by the custom Dayton Classic stainless wire wheels and gold leaf pinstriping applied by Nadine Ward. The only original part of the body is the cowl, with every other panel being hand-fabricated on an English wheel by Butch Dysart.
Power is supplied by a 302 cubic inch Ford V-8 fitted with an Inglese fuel injection system resembling a vintage mechanical injection set-up with eight velocity stacks. Note the custom engraved valve cover honoring Jess Cornejo. The engine was built by Pedigo Performance.
Looking for all the world like imported burled wood, the custom dashboard and center console are in fact fitted fiberglass pieces expertly woodgrained. The center instrument pod is fitted with Ford white-faced gauges, with a matching oval panel below housing the Vintage Air air conditioning and heater controls. Note the neat leather map pockets on the doors.
Custom touches abound, with the exhaust system routed out through the rear of the running boards; both running boards and the rear fenders had to be widened several inches to accomodate the massive Michelin Pilot Sport 335/30/20 rear tires mounted to the Dayton Classic 2 stainless wire wheels.
Accuair Stage 2 air ride suspension allows Cornejo the drop his truck right down to the pavement or hike it up a couple of notches for boulevard cruising. The front wheels are also Dayton Classic wire wheels, fitted with 235/40/18 rubber.
Storage behind the passenger seat is reserved for a portable DVD player and is secured by leather straps. The trim piece that flows around the upper edge of the body is fiberglass, with custom speaker grilles inset.
Originally fitted with a standard street rod-style square bed, Cornejo's truck now has a custom built phaeton-like tub, complete with tailgate. More pinstriping and gold leaf accents highlight the overall design.
This is an all-metal creation, with only the custom-fabricated hood panel made of fiberglass; here it has been removed to show off the chrome and stainless steel parts that live below it. Note the old-time V-8 emblem emblazoned on the firewall.
The roadster pickup is just as spectacular underneath as it is on top; a custom tubular frame painted in matching candy green was used to mount the Ford 9-inch rear end. Anything that isn't painted is either chromed or polished stainless steel.
