Video: Observe This Unique Contender At The Detroit Autorama

Slicker than your average, ScottieDTV spotted one unique custom that we couldn’t simply throw under the rug. Behold, a 1941 Ford Pickup that is one serious custom.

Richard and Lynn Broyles’ 1941 Ford “Mirage”

Built and owned by Richard Broyles, this Ford was showcased in the Great 8 at the 2016 Detroit Autorama. Inside and out, this is a one-off custom that will be hard to replicate.

The custom built Borla system is an all-stainless, over the frame header and exhaust system. The rear features a 10-inch quick change differential that shines along with its other chrome components beneath.

From the shaved handles to the 3-piece, one-off Intro Wheels, this Ford stands out simply for its creative structure and innovative aesthetics. The wheels measure 18 inches in the front, and 20 inches in the rear, which fit tuck effortlessly on this pickup.

We can’t call it a new classic, but it holds design trends from both the old school and modern era of rodding. It may not look like a pickup anymore, but it holds quite the attention, keeping your eye wandering about this unique custom. The rear end may be the only way you can tell this was a truck previously in all honesty.

Is a hot rod? Is a street rod? We’ll leave that decision for you to make. Competing for the prestigious Ridler Award, this Ford, named “Mirage” was built from the ground up.

From the LED lighting inside to the modern look of the entire interior, this car screams custom to the highest degree. The lighting has an illuminated backlight effect that gives the interior visual depth.

Some may find this quite unique as others may find it oddly peculiar, but we like the creative direction this custom Ford took and how it ended up. With all said, it is at the Detroit Autorama competing against the most innovative customs from around the nation.

What are your thoughts on this custom? Is there too much going on? Feel free to comment below.
