I’ve always said it’s easy to make a good looking factory truck look cool. Most people would agree that the 57 Ford pickup isn’t factory gorgeous by any means. So, when a custom built 57 comes along like this one from Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop in Alabama, I really appreciate the builder’s ability. A quick look around the truck and you’ll notice a gorgeous paint application with graphite color used for parts that are traditionally chromed like bumpers, mirrors and the grille. The front bumper is tightly fitted to the lower valance and really fits the design theme of the truck. A big back window cab and perfect gaps round out the highlights. It’s 100 percent smooth perfection, front to back!
