Award-Winning Custom 1962 Ford F-100 ‘Django’ Headed To Auction In Scottsdale

The thoroughly-customized 1962 Ford F-100 pickup pictured above, nicknamed “Django”, has a very full trophy case. It debuted at the 2015 Detroit Autorama, winning Best Radical Truck and Outstanding Full Radical Hand-Built Truck, before going on to claim still more awards at various Goodguys events, the Salt Lake Autorama, and Hot August Nights in Reno, Nevada. And, in the mere two-and-a-half years it’s been around, “Django” has been featured in Hot Rod, Street Trucks, Classic Trucks, Diesel Power, and Diesel World.

Now, it seems the owners are finally ready to send this one-of-a-kind custom truck to a new home; Django is headed to auction. The custom-built 1962 Ford F-100 will be up for bid at Barrett-Jackson‘s annual Scottsdale auction event in January.

If the two-tone paint job with red pin-striping isn’t enough to make you want to whip out your wallet, allow us to fill you in on some of its other highlights. This 1962 Ford F-100 is powered by a 5.9L 12-valve Cummins diesel with a custom stainless intake manifold and a pair of Borg Warner turbos, backed by a three-speed automatic and a custom 4-inch exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. A custom chromoly 4-link suspension with RideTech double-adjustable coilovers sits in the rear, and at all four corners sit Boze Force wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber. The truck futher boasts suicide doors; a flush, slammed appearance; and a luxurious leather interior with Kicker audio components.
