What’s on your Christmas wish list? If it’s a dream come true, one-of-a-kind ride, FSD Hot Rod Ranch in Eustis, Florida has just what you are looking for: a 1965 Mercury M100 with 650 HP Stylebox designed by Ken Currie. It is also distinguished for being one of the top ten picks by Hot Rod Magazine in 2015, and is one of only 1000 ever made.
Currie, who has custom built over 70 Ford trucks and is famous for the Reverse Tilt Front End, began the build in 2011 and completed it in 2015. Making its debut at the Detroit Autorama in the same year and making the covers of numerous automotive magazines, this M100 is a celebrity in its own right.
Its “wow!” features include a Jamaican yellow exterior with hand-painted pinstripes, 18”/20” American Racing torq thrust wheels sporting Nitto Neo-Gen AS/UHP tires, and a custom gray interior.
The list goes on with a custom Soundstream Audio System, Dolphin gauges, and of course, the highlighted BluePrint Engine 383CI Stroker V8 with forged internals and Blueprint Engines aluminum heads.
Add a dual Holley Center Squirter 660CFM 488L carb, polished Weiand 671 blower, five-speed manual with overdrive, front powered disc brakes, line lock, electric cutouts, all sitting on a 1991 F150 chassis with radiator and fans relocated to the bed. Last but not least, there are polished Richies Dragmaster scoops with velocity stacks.
Oh, I almost forgot. The dash is signed…by Steve Darnell, owner of Welderup, Discovery Channel Vegas Rat Rod, and Jimmie Shine of Shine Speedshop.
Wow. How would you like to find all of that under your Christmas tree?
This four-year restoration modification (resto-mod) build by well-known designer Ken Currie is listed at $37,000 – for some lucky person, an absolute steal when you think of the time, effort and money invested. For more information regarding this incredible, unique truck (and their other inventory!), visit www.fsdhotrodranch.com for a virtual tour, take an actual tour at their Eustis, Florida location, or follow them on Facebook!
So don’t forget to mention this ride in your letter to Santa Claus…tell him HRL sent you.
Happy Holidays from FSD Hot Rod Ranch!
