$1,000 Build: Still Under Budget! How Is Building A Hot Rod This Cheap Even Possible?

$1,000 Build: Still Under Budget! How Is Building A Hot Rod This Cheap Even Possible?

I want to be a disbeliever as well, but the truth is that this is actually happening. If you have budget constraints like most of us, then you really owe it to yourself to watch this series. Not only is it inspiring, but it is also a great lesson in what tools are REALLY needed, how to work smart instead of throwing money at something, and how some simple skills and techniques can result in something really cool.

This is a no bull real deal $1,000 build that is cool, will be fun to drive, and can be done by you at home. Yes the real budget is $1,000 and yes selling stuff off the donor vehicle to get budget back is allowed, and to be even more real about the budget the tools being used are even being kept on a list so you  know how much money those cost as well!

So here’s the deal. Take one Lincoln Town Car, aka a Crown Vic with more chrome and stuff, and cut the body off of it. Then take an F100 body that looks considerably better than it really is and put the two together. All the while making sure to sell off anything and everything you don’t need from the donor so that you can use that for other parts and pieces to complete the truck. So you understand the math, we’ll make up an example. Lets say you were doing this at home and found a Town Car for $1,200. You buy it, sell the seats, fenders, mirrors, trim, bumpers, and air bags for a total of $575 and now your total investment in the donor car is only $625. See?

Okay, so now lets get back to the videos. This is part 14 and 15 of the build right here, so if you  missed any of the others then use the link below to go see them all in order. It is worth it for sure.
