2012 SEMA: Chip Foose's Own 1956 Ford F-100 [Photo Gallery]
The vehicle was acquired by a man called Sam Foose, who, yes, happens to be Chip Foose's dad. Chip bought of the vehicle when he was just 13 and rebuilt it over the course of three years, subsequently using it through high school and first college years.
Since the pickup was features in Discovery Channel's Overhaulin', almost all of its panels received new styling cues.
To give you an idea of just how custom this F100 is, we'll tell you that the front wheels now sit forward, all four fenders have lost their original positions and shapes and now accommodate one-off wheels.
You can probably tell by the massive brakes that sit hidden under the spokes that the hood conceals serious firepower, but you're not ready for this: the car is powered by a Roush NASCAR racing V8 and it's not just any racing motor, it's Serial No. 1.
