1956 Ford F-100 Stepside
The great thing about a vintage truck is that it has all the right features for both flash and substance. This 1956 Ford F-100 is a great example with fresh electric blue paint, a strong-running 351ci V8, and one of the tidiest total packages around. This truck's days of punching the time clock are well behind it, and you know that the moment it comes into view. The Lightning Blue is actually borrowed from a more modern Mopar color palette. So it makes this one a distinct standout. In fact, they took their time making sure the panels were straight and the trim was expertly deleted. That way there is nothing to keep you from enjoying how this deep clearcoat shine rolls evenly across the classic sheetmetal. And while the custom appearance has a modern appeal, they also didn't forget this is a vintage machine. It has great classic details like glossy real wood truck bed and the blue dot taillights in the shape of the Ford family crest. And the wheels were even borrowed from a later-model Bullitt Mustang for a great way to add a performance appearance while still mindful about the Ford lineage. Inside, the black vinyl bench seat is a nice update from the '50s to give you added comfort. It matches with carpeting, and the exterior blue return dash and doors for a tasteful total appearance. You'll slip behind a classic wood and chrome steering wheel mounted on a chrome tilt column. Your seating position is commanding, and everything from the tall gearshift to the AM/FM/CD stereo is within easy reach. It also gives you a full view of the factory speedometer, auxiliary gauge package, and large Sun Super Tach. This is all a nice indication that you'll like what's under the hood. The engine bay was built to be a terrific showcase. The smooth fender walls and firewall funnel your attention to all the polish on the V8. The 351 cubic-inch Windsor motor is already known to be a great powerhouse. And this one adds terrific upgrades, like the Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and a set of headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. More than just power, this has also been given the right supporting components, like the upgraded pulleys, newer wiring, and an aluminum radiator. And that's exactly how you should view this whole pickup: upgraded with the driver in mind. After all, the painted undercarriage reveals a truck that you can put a mirror under at car shows. But features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes means it's easier to get to those shows, too. Complete with build receipts and restoration photos, this is the Ford with the right look and the upgrades you want. There's only one of these up for grabs, so hurry up and call today!!!
