INTRODUCTION: The Farmtruck is a 1970, C-10 Chevy Pickup Truck.  Just like your grandpa had or maybe your dad... well almost like their's!! 
Tommy Lee Bryd said it like this in his book Street SleepersThe art of the deceptively fast car, "There's something to be said for a sleeper than gains national notoriety, and becomes a household name for car guys. Pretty much every car guy with a TV or an Internet connection has seen or at least heard of Farmtruck, because it's one of the coolest sleepers on the planet."  See Tommy's book here
HISTORY:  The story of the Farmtruck started when Sean was a little boy riding in his father's 1956 Ford pickup.  It had an old racing motor out of dirt track car and it would catch on fire at every stop light.  He was fascinated with the four on the floor and how the boot would move up and down.  His interest in racing began around 12 years old. When he was holding a flash light above his head to start races for his older brothers and their friends on Route 66.  The only way he was  allowed to go was if he would stand in the middle of the fastest cars and flag the races.  Every car  he has ever driven or owned  has been a race car to him.  He had other trucks he tinkered with until he answered an ad in an Auto Trader Magazine.  The ad said, "Very fast truck for sale."   He drove to see the truck and thought, "It's just an old ugly truck and it's not going to do anything."  But his first ride in the truck changed his tune fast!
