NICE CUSTOM, 302 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES, FRONT A-ARM SUSPENSION, WONT LAST!
The 1956 Ford F-100 is one of the best trucks around to turn into a hot rod. And as you take a closer look at this one, you'll realize it's the cream of the crop.
There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools Ford Motor Division ever built. The cab's aggressive forward-leaning stance is enhanced on this one with custom Eagle Alloys that are larger in the rear. The rest of the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. This one had a serious investment from top to bottom that resulted in a near laser-straight truck. It was then dipped in a red so tasty that you'll swear it was candy. Fit and finish are very nice, and not a single Ford curve or corner was modified to get this look. Even the original badges on the side of the hood and doors remain in place. They act like pointers to the dazzling new chrome front grille, and bumper. Out back there's even more brightwork on the exhaust tips, and rear bumper, with a bright LED setup incorporated into it. With all this shiny glamor, the real wood truck bed is a very nice contrast.
Inside there's the perfect mix of old and new worlds. The leather bucket seats are from a late-model GM vehicle. Anyone who thinks this is sacrilegious in a blue oval pickup will change his mind after comparing how comfortable these are to the standard bench. In a more Ford fashion, the driver gets a three-spoke wooden wheel that looks like it belongs in a classic Mustang. Beyond that are the original set of gauges, supplemented by a new SunPro cluster that provides info on the water temperature, oil pressure, and battery. The rest of the dash is clean and original, right down to the period-correct heater. Looking for the modern radio? It's nicely hidden in the glovebox as to not harm the dash.
It's always nice to see a Ford engine in a Ford vehicle, and the snarky 302 cubic inch V8 provides plenty of performance. This is because the near bulletproof block has been upgraded with lots of Edelbrock goodies, including the intake, carburetor, and finned valve covers that have been specially painted Ford blue for that extra bit of showtime impressiveness. There are also other performance upgrades such as the electronic ignition, and headers for the dual exhaust. The result is a great muscle car sound and the power to backup its roar. Getting all this to the ground is a 10-bolt rear end that's running on grippy street tires. But this Ford is not all about racing in between the stoplights. This pickup is also a power steering truck, with a three-speed automatic. So feel free to intimidate everyone on a Saturday night cruise, or simply go for a lazy Sunday drive.
A beautifully built, well sorted pickup with details that will make everyone stop and admire it. What could be better? How about a price that beats just about any other comparable '56 F100 out there! Call now!!
