Looking for a good place to stash a few extra bucks is tough nowadays. Saving money for that proverbial rainy day is something that everyone should make a top financial priority, but very few people are as enthusiastic about stacking chips than Pablo Tovar. The Orange Cove, California, resident devised a great solution to the humdrum, boring routine of making retirement fund contributions. Instead of filling out bank deposit slips, Pablo made out check after check while investing some funds and quality time into his fabulous '56 Ford F-100. Who says saving for your post-employment years can't be a blast?

With a few custom classic builds already on his portfolio, Pablo knew exactly what to expect from his first Ford custom. Building a one-off, trophy-pulling truck isn't done on the cheap by any stretch of the imagination, so Pablo began calculating his estimated investment piece by piece.

Getting the truck to stand at a respectable cruising height didn't need to break the bank. In fact, Pablo submerged the suspension height by two inches using tried and true static drop components. Industrial Chassis in Phoenix, Arizona, was given the pleasure of lowering the Ford using basic materials such as Dodge Dakota spindles and TRW coils up front and new leaf springs under the bed. Pablo selected a set of classic, five-spoke 20x81/2-inch Boyd Coddington Magneto wheels and Toyo tires to stuff underneath the truck's curvy fenders, which make for a rich combination.

Now, at first glance, Pablo's hauler is 100-percent Blue Oval but with one look under the hood, one would find that assumption to be quite the opposite. A '69 Camaro 350ci small-block serves as this four-wheeled moneymaker's beating heart. Pablo's previous custom builds included the likes of a '52 Chevy truck and a '67 El Camino-guess we failed to disclose the details. You can take a man out of a Chevy but there is no taking the Chevy out of him.
