1956 Ford F-100 Pickup Truck
At RK Motors Charlotte we believe classics are built to be enjoyed not planned to be enjoyed. This magazine-featured F100 is a complete 'smart buy' that'll fulfill your dreams faster than any custom you've spent years idealizing! When the owner of this red-hot Effie began planning a cross-country road trip in a vintage pickup he had every intention of sourcing a nice reliable cruiser. And he did just that by purchasing this solid Seafoam Green Ford. But as happens with so many of these projects... hobby turned into obsession and minor restoration turned into an opportunity to create something incredible. And eventually with the intent of taking the truck "to a level that no one else had accomplished" he kicked off a professional high-dollar transformation. Tilt the trick hood and you'll find a fresh 5.0 liter Ford Racing 'mod motor' that twists stout 11 to 1 compression into 420 horsepower and 390 lb./ft. of tire-melting torque! Officially named Coyote and not far removed from the engine that powers the current Mustang GT this state-of-the-art rocket features a forged crank forged rods hypereutectic pistons and all-aluminum 4-valve construction. Behind the Coyote a Simple Shift Controller utilizes a Performance Automatic-supplied 4R70W 4-speed to twist a 9-inch axle around friendly 3.25 gears. That proven drivetrain rolls on polished Heidts control arms adjustable coil-over-shocks and a polished Heidts rear clip. That modern suspension is augmented with Heidts power rack-and-pinion steering. Braking is equally class with Hydratech hydraulics controlling standard front discs and inboard rear discs. And power meets the pavement through painted steel wheels which twist white walled BF Goodrich Silvertown Radials around stainless trim rings and polished "FORD" branded hubcaps.
