Please note that images of the known imperfections have been added to the Photo Gallery.
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
This ground-up custom build is said to have been purchased by George Forman from a local builder of hot rods and jukeboxes and utilizes a custom-fabricated frame with a General Motors front clip, a one-piece 1953-1956 Ford F-100 hood and fender assembly, and a leather-trimmed fourth-generation C/K series pickup fleetside bed. Beneath the motor-actuated hood assembly lies a small-block Chevrolet V8 with a plaque identifying the engine builder as Street & Performance Inc. in Mena, Arkansas. Reverse-hinged “suicide” doors open to reveal bucket seats, an Alpine stereo, a custom center console, and flame-embossed leather headliner and door panels. This 1955 Ford Custom Pickup stands as a testament to the artistry and passion of its creator, balancing modern amenities with classic styling.
This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Please note that this lot is offered in non-running condition after being stored without operation in a climate-controlled facility for at least 10 years. As a result, it will benefit from additional mechanical attention before being driven to address any imperfections associated with long-term storage or individual preferences. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.
