What type of vehicle is this?
Make, Model, Year of Project
1941 Ford F6
What stage is this in?
When did you purchase it and for how much?
I purchased the start of this project by trading for it piece by piece traded a 1929 Mercedes Benz kit car for the project and a lot of other old goodies to make this build happen.
Why did you choose this vehicle?
I just love building the old cool stuff, nothing better than real metal behind real power
What sort of condition was it in when you started the project, what was wrong with it, etc.
As you can see looking through the pictures, it was built in pieces.
What, specifically have you done, or had done to it?
I used a 1979 Chevy dually frame with a cammed out 454 that has been fully redone and chromed out.
The body and frame was fully pin stripped by Dennis Sprouse including the Transmission.
Can you list any and all parts that you have put in?
The frame is a 1979 Chevy dually.
1979 fully upgraded 454 cammed, high rise intake, Edelbrock carburetor, chromed out drop back headers
I used an old Red Riderder BB gun for the shifter, us air horns
I used a Model A front grill
Peterbuild headlights and a Peterbuild gas tank.
What about you?
I’m just a young man with an old soul. I came from nothing.
I was born in Amarillo, Texas. There are 7 generations here in Texas.
I’ve always had a love for old cars, it just makes me happy to make something out of nothing. I don’t just built rat rods I’m in to hot rods, low riders and old trucks.
I will take on any thing with a smile on my face.
I have 3 daughters, Heavenlee, Hope and Harmoney and my wife Angel. Each of which love the cars just as much as I do.
Any stories regarding this project?
This is a show winner and the project never finishes. I always try to do more.
It will throw a 5′ flame from the headers
Any garages, parts stores, fabrication shops, etc you want to call out specifically?

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
