Mike Livia: 1936 Ford Pickup

Mike Livia fell in love with old Fords and hot rods after attending his first Good Guys Car Show in 2011 with a bunch of friends. The desire to own one for himself was so strong that he picked up a 1936 Ford pickup box and cab the following year, and began the long process of building his own vision. With a 1951 Ford flathead engine, some go-fast bits, and a ton of custom work to bring his copperhead theme to life, Livia's '36 Pickup is a gem from yesteryear.
