At the Goodguys show in Del Mar, California, they selected this 1931 Ford Truck as a finalist for Early Truck of the Year.  We previously commented on the Del Mar show here.

At other venues during this year, Goodguys will select some more finalists before awarding one truck the coveted title of “Early Truck of the Year” at the Goodguys finale in Scottsdale, Arizona in November, 2014.  In fact at this final show of their year, several Yearly Awards are selected.

This 31 Ford truck kept a stock looking exterior but freshened up the engine and drive train.  The paint had a color flake to add a little sparkle.  31 Ford Truck

Henry Ford would not recognize the power plant under this hood but I guarantee you it’ll move out from the traffic lights.  I especially like the wheel treatment with the white walls and maroon rims and chrome centers.  How about you?

The Goodguys Rod and Custom show crosses the country with shows spread across numerous venues.  Although their name says “rod and custom”, in truth all sorts of cars and trucks show up at these three-day weekend events.  Plus on All American Sunday, modern muscle cars are welcome to join the party, so you get the opportunity to see a little of everything at one of their shows.

Entrants pay a modest fee for all three days of the show and the public pay at the admission gate for a chance to see some awesome classic cars and trucks.  Mots site even do a road course so cars can drive a timed cone outlined course to strut their car and their driving skills.

 

Here is a short video we created on the 31 Ford Truck.  Enjoy
