WyoTech will use the SEMA Show 2013 to  unveil the complete of a custom 1964 Ford F-100 built by students and faculty at the Blairsville, Pa. campus.

“This project showcases the skills and training that WyoTech offers at several of our schools across the United States,” said Michael Stiglich, division president of WyoTech. “We’re excited to unveil the truck to the SEMA show attendees.”

The project began on an episode of “Trucks!” with a team of grads who overhauled the 390 Ford FE engine with a host of aftermarket components and beefed up the undercarriage with new parts from Heidt’s Hot Rod Shop.

Students and instructors at the Blairsville, Pa. campus finished the job and handled the extensive bodywork, which converted the truck to a roadster pick-up.

Other mods include a chopped windshield, a ’56 Ford grille, a one-piece tailgate, a shaved/smoothed body, a fabricated front bumper and an all-new engine bay. LMC supplied body panels and trim pieces to make it happen.

The WyoTech team applied PPG paint to the F-100 while the interior was finished with beautiful two-tone leather supplied by Katzkin. The Edelbrock-equipped FE engine supplies the power to the lowered chassis while the MagnaFlow exhaust makes it rumble.

The long list of top-quality aftermarket contributors includes: ARP, Canton Racing Products, Crane Cams, Edelbrock, Heidt’s Hot Rod Shop, Ididit, Katzkin, LMC, MagnaFlow, Melling, Mother’s Polish, Mr. Gasket, Pertronix, PPG. Royal Purple and Summit Racing.
