1955 Ford F100 truck owned by James Elmer Koski of Hayward, California. Koski's truck was built and raced in the 1960s. Powered by a healthy 348 cu in Chevrolet engine with three carbs it was supposedly clocked in at 106 mph.[1]


For Sale

In March of 2020, the truck was advertised for sale. It had not been driven since the Vietnam War started, and was missing the transmission. It appeared to have an Olds or Pontiac rear end. The front end had been modified to accept canted quad headlights, and the pinstriping was allegedly done in the early 1960s by a local talent that went by the alias "The Little Pinstriper." According to Henrik Forss, the truck has been kept inside for the past 50 years or so, and it is very solid.
