Customers Rides - The Coyote

In 2014, Needfulthingz customer Chris commissioned Lukasz Granicy, owner of Needfulthingz Hot Rod and Fabrication Shop in Lancaster California to assemble his old school 1955 Ford F-100 truck. His desire was to build a semi-stock "Door Slammer" truck to cruise around town in. Well, once Lukasz had some time alone with the truck, he came up with the vision of what you see here today. Our artist rendered a drawing of the design and officially, "The Coyote" was born!

For years, Lukasz had the idea to design a custom, restomod pro touringtruck with a one off bed for a Ford F-100, making this his perfect opportunity! Midway through the building, Lukasz presented the modification idea to his customer, Chris. Being a craftsman himself, he could envision the idea and definitely agreed that this had to be accomplished.

With Needfulthingz all new persuasive design set and Lukasz's unstoppable desire for perfection, this truck was on its way to greatness! This double walled F-100 bed with radius corners is unlike any other classic truck bed on the market.
