The Gold Standard, a 1941 Ford Pickup that features a 8BA Mercury Flathead engine that has been bored, stroked, cammed, and fit with three Stromberg carbs which is tied with a Borg Warner T5 transmission. The details in around the truck are what sets it apart. The hood alone was pie-cut, nosed and sectioned for this '41 alone. The fenders were widened and stretched with rolled fender lips. "Brown Sugar" is the given name of the custom PPG paint color laid by Gary Corkell, to which his inspiration came form the Domino brown sugar packaging.
