351 V8, AUTO, IFS, PS, 4 WHL DISCS, COLD A/C, NICE PAINT & INT., GREAT CRUISER
This 1955 Ford F-1 was built to standout. From the unique metallic paint, to the custom A/C interior, to the throaty rumble of the enhanced V8, it's all part of a total package designed to impress you from every angle.
You have to love the overall execution of this custom pickup. The Midnight Bronze paint is different than the bold reds and blacks that are often seen on these models, but it still has the same kind of standout shine. That's thanks to a modern professional application of a clearcoat paint over a nice hint of metallic. And this is already on top of one of the best vintage pickup designs around. That curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time thanks to the forward leaning stance, steel running boards, and rounded rear fenders. Brightwork is always a must on a '50s machine, and so you get great pieces like the mirror-like bumpers, intricate trim, and the iconic Cragar SS wheels. And this one has all the right details to impress, like the glossy lumber of the real wood truck bed, Ford emblem taillights, and subtle red, white & blue pinstriping in the grille.
The custom feeling continues the moment you open the door. The brown and white bucket seats are vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1950s. Plus, a center console and cup holders are always nice additions. And take a look at the detail work on the matching door panels and headliner. Yes, that's ostrich texture! This pickup had a precious metal's worth invested in the interior, so we understand exactly why the dash is painted gold. You get a nice wood and chrome steering wheel that gives you a great view of the full Omega custom gauge setup. Everything is so cleanly installed, you might miss some of the upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, and the modern R134a air conditioning.
You're going to love firing up this one in a crowd, just so everyone can hear that you have something special under the hood. It's Ford's famous 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8, and it has a fantastic presentation. After all, the polished elements like the Ford Racing valve covers, pulleys in the serpentine belts, air topper, and so much more look like they are radiating power from that dark engine bay... and your first impression is quite correct! That's because the V8 inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor. And it exhales with thunderous authority through headers that feed the glasspack dual exhaust - with cutouts - that exit right behind the driver's door (that way you get to enjoy all of it.) Beyond just sounding great, you'll love to know there are dependable components such as the Holley electric fuel pump and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans (so your truck can stay cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C running.) And the great driving feature don't end there. This has an upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and an upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
A beautifully built, well sorted pickup, with details that will make everyone stop and admire it. Plus, it has all the right features to drive it every day. A total package like this won't stay around long. Call today!!!
