The only segment that Michael's crafty hands did not touch was the leather-stitchwork upholstery. Next, the freshly painted truck was trailered over to Hot Rod Interiors By Chuck in Morrisville, North Carolina, where Chuck Hanna designed and built the low-back custom bucket seats. He then covered them with mint mist leather, along with the door and kick panels. To reduce the engine and road noise, Chuck installed a layer of Dynamat sound-deadening material before laying mint mist leather floor covering.

The full green suede headliner adds to the mellow dcor. An '07 Ford F-150 shifter protrudes out of the full waterfall center console. The pedal assembly was made by Clayton Machine Works. An ididit painted tilt steering column was capped with a Budnik Gasser 50/50 green/silver painted steering wheel. The Vintage Air control panel and vents are within an effortless arms reach, located in the waterfall console. The year-round climate system maintains a comfortable ambient condition, either hot or cold.

It seems every mod that could be done to a '56 Ford F-100 has been done to the max. There is no doubt, Harold's '56 Ford Phatty will draw attention and trophies wherever he rolls. Too cool!
