Bill’s 1955 Ford Customline

Bill has quite the little sleeper here in this Customline. We’re proud that he chose us for the following parts and components:

  • 2 AWG Battery Relocation Kit
  • Moroso Battery Box
  • Headlight Relay Kit
  • Custom Fan Relay Kit
  • Master Weatherpack Kit
  • MSD Crimp Tool & Dies
  • Rockford Fosgate Distribution Blocks and Fuse Holders
  • ATC Fuse Panels, Relays, Solenoid, Switches, Custom Cables, etc.

Bill fabbed up the battery box, breakers, and wiring on the bench to make his job easier.

Bill chose to upgrade the standard battery terminals to these Rockford Fosgate battery terminals and we custom built the kit with these terminals. These will easily facilitate connecting his pair of audio amplifiers to the battery.

Bill purchased a 200 Amp Alternator from Powermaster. As it makes over 140 Amps at idle, we fabbed up a 2 AWG charge lead for him to connect it to the front located power distribution from the rear battery (see below). Bill is using the Rockford Fosgate ANL fuse holder to protect the vehicle from voltage run-away in the unlikely event that the regulator fails. Note how Bill also grounded the alternator solidly to the frame via a custom ground lead that we also fabbed up to his specs.

Bill sheathed all cables in split braided tubing for a super clean look!

Bill utilized a pair of Rockford Fosgate RFD4 Distribution Blocks to provide a simple and solid connection between the alternator charge lead and main battery feed. In addition, this layout provides numerous power taps for the starter solenoid, and several ATC Fuse Panels that Bill is using to distribute power.

A better view of Bill’s power distribution arrangement.

Bill fabbed up a panel to mount the Painless fuse panel, a 100 Amp solenoid, and a 9-positon ATC Fuse Panel. This panel covers the original opening for the heater box.

Bill had a custom shroud built for a 16″ Spal puller fan. Note the relays at the right – the top two are part of our Headlight Relay Kit, the bottom is for the custom electric fan harness we fabbed up to Bill’s specifications.

Great work Bill! Thanks for sending so many great pics. Stay tuned as Bill finishes this project!
