1955 Ford F-1 Restomod
The great thing about a vintage truck is that it has all the right features for both flash and substance. This 1955 Ford F-100 is a great example with bright paint, an A/C interior, upgraded suspension, and a strong-running 351ci V8. And there are so few miles on this build that it's all presented exceptionally fresh. The moment people catch sight of this one in the sunshine, they're going to know it's something special. The original shade of Sea Sprite Green now has a terrific luster thanks to a modern professional application of a clearcoat paint. 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 smooth hood, large front fenders, steel running boards, and rounded rear fenders. And the way these all-line up nicely tells you someone paid attention to the bodywork during restoration. Brightwork is always a must on a '50s machine, and so you get great pieces like the mirror-like bumpers and shining trim securing the real wood truck bed. And we know you love those polished 18-inch Fosse wheels. Not only do they hint at the upgrades within, but also with the matching bed-mounded spare, it's a terrific classic twist on this modern upgrade. The custom feeling continues the moment you open the door. The black on the seat, carpeting, and door panels feels exceptionally fresh, because there's less than 200 miles on this whole build. The dash matches the exterior color and has a clean and simple design, like a classic truck should. But as you look closer, you see a ton of great upgrades. For example, modern R134a air conditioning was cleanly installed under the dash. You'll slip behind the black and chrome steering wheel, grab the Lokar shifter, and watch the full gauge panel do its dance. So while your eyes see a vintage truck, the rest of your senses give you a tingle of performance. Under the hood is Ford's famous 351 cubic-inch motor, and a V8 that looks this good can win awards all on its own. Smooth fender walls and a color-matched block kick off a very polished package. With the shine coming off the air topper, valve covers, alternator, pulleys, and so much more, you might need to pass out sunglasses before popping the hood at the car shows. Plus, the V8 has all the right performance upgrades, including an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and headers that feed a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Plus, the aluminum radiator with electric fan means you can keep running cool even when the A/C is pumping. And while it will be fun to sit idle and let people listen to the rumble of the dual exhaust, this F-100 was also built for driving. It has an upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension with tubular A-arms, power steering, and three-speed automatic transmission. This package is finished off with a nice set of vented & slotted four-wheel disc brakes and performance tires for the best grip. You're looking at a fresh and beautiful restomod pickup with a strong V8 heart. A total package like this won't stay available for long. Call today!!!
