FULLY RESTORED & READY TO SHOW OR BE PUT TO USE! 292 Y BLOCK, 4SPD, VERY NICE!
With its stout, vintage physique clad in an era-appropriate Ford color and featuring a level of functionality that would be impressive in any classic, let alone one that first set foot on the asphalt more than 60 years ago, the mere sight of this 1956 Ford F-350 is enough to put you in a good mood. Equally at home as a classic car hauler, parade vehicle or show truck, this outstanding antique workhorse will greet its new owner in great form while carrying a collection of restoration photos to document its transformation.
This F-350 will make anyone with even a casual interest in classics take notice. Sturdily built, it looks like a supersized version of its lighter duty counterparts and the level of detail it displays is really impressive. Its front end and cab are draped in Meadow Mist green, an era-appropriate selection from off the Ford color chart the year it came out and a very effective backdrop for the sharp badging it carries. Step around to the front and you'll see how its protruding fenders give it a broad shouldered, powerful appearance that conveys the notion it's capable of handling anything you throw its way. And it is. This '56 benefitted from a very thorough restoration, where it was completely disassembled and had any issues found remedied with precision and skill - upon which time it was thoroughly prepped and primed before being repainted. It sports a new windshield up front with vintage amber glass throughout the cabin and its alignment is very much on point - you can see how precisely the corners of the trunk meet up with the fenders on either side.
Climb the shiny black running board, open the driver side door and you'll be greeted by an interior that's been refurbished to original specs with a lot of attention to detail. The bench seat has been covered in black vinyl that sits over fresh, firm padding and doesn't show much wear at all. The steel surfaces of the interior have all been painted to match the exterior and, just beyond the original steering wheel, the fan-shaped instrument cluster sits in the dash with its collection of factory gauges all fully functional. Considering the rarity of this Ford, replacing any missing elements inside would be no easy feat, so the fact that they all sit securely in place is a big plus here. In back, the bed area shows the same meticulous work performed on the rest of the truck and features a new oak bed and surrounding stakes that are held in place with original-era hardware and fresh stainless-steel ribbing.
Raise the F-350's stout hood and you'll find a 292 cubic inch V8 sitting inside a very clean engine compartment, carrying an Autolite under its black air cleaner and a pair of matching black, Ford-branded valve covers on its sides. The Y-block powerplant was rebuilt not long ago, is in strong running shape and shows no penchant for burning oil, so it's well-positioned to power this classic for many years to come. A 4-speed manual transmission that features a proper compound low gear gets things moving in even the most unforgiving of situations. True to its hard-working lineage, this classic comes equipped with Power Take Off to lend its strength to farm equipment or whatever else might need a helping hand in the field. Power brakes that were also rebuilt not long ago bring this one of a kind truck to a stop as it performs its duties on 8R17.5 10-ply Double Coin tires up front and dual pairs of Yokohama tires in back.
This 1956 Ford F-350 is a masterfully restored and highly functioning piece of automotive history that would be an outstanding addition to any collection. Call today!
