Grand Slam, Back to Back to Back to Back

AT THIS POINT IN THE GAME, IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD THE NAME TONY LEAL OR SLAMMED64S, THEN YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT AN AVID READER OF CUSTOM TRUCK MAGS, OR MAYBE YOU’RE NEWER TO THE CLASSIC CUSTOM TRUCK GAME ALTOGETHER. Either way, you should know that Tony has delivered more badass custom truck builds in the last few years than most of us will ever get through in our lifetime.

He already surpassed the hattrick and trifecta marks by building a cover truck from each of the Big Three (Chevy, Ford and Dodge), but being that Tony is sort of a perfectionist, there was one thing (well, two things) that always bugged him about his last ’61 F-100 build. First and foremost, it ran as a feature truck and didn’t quite hit the cover stature of his other two builds and, second, it was a patina uni. So, this time around, he truly swung for the fences and went all in on a standard ’64 Ford F-100 pickup build to top the rest.

This particular Ford truck build dates back a few decades. Tony recalls driving around in old Fords on his pop’s lap as a youngin’ and credits his father with much of the reason why he’s drawn toward Fords more than anything else. Even though Tony’s taste for custom is certainly quite eclectic, the love for the smooth and classic lines of Blue Ovals have admittedly held a special place in his heart since those early days, which were much more simple times! The year 2020 has certainly been a tough one for many in a lot of different ways, but Tony pushed even deeper and vowed to set the bar once again with a truly badass and unique full-tilt custom.
