1956 Ford F-100

There are new trucks you can buy on the showroom floor that aren't as nicely finished and comfortable as this 1956 Ford F-100. Packing V8 power, five speed manual transmission, high-visibility paint job, nd all the creature comforts you'd expect, his beautiful pickup is a secret hot rod that really can do it all.There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools ever built. With that aggressive forward-canted attitude (further emphasized by the custom stance,) the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. This one is custom creation, ut it keeps many of the original pieces like the chrome bumpers, oor handles, nd badging, o travel a bit incognito and keep its vintage style. Fit and finish are good all around, nd the deep red shine always looks fantastic on these models. While this Ford is a show-stopper, on't be surprised if people actually spend more time looking at the rear of this one. That's because it has interesting features such as the rare wraparound big back window, pristine real wood truck bed, nd while this pickup tries to fly under the radar with original-style hubcaps, here is no hiding the massive rear wheels.Open the door and you can see instantly that this is a custom build with a lot of money invested. The standard bench seat has been replaced with a custom leather setup, ith sculpted seating for the driver and passenger. The black and red color scheme is continued everywhere on the interior, ncluding the door panels, arpets, nd headliner. Everyone gets to take advantage of the power windows, up holders, ower locks, M/FM/XM/CD stereo, nd R-134a air conditioning, ut this is a true driver's pickup. There is a custom three-spoke steering wheel with Ford's famous V8 logo in the middle. Beyond that is an upgraded full gauge package with classic looking instruments, nd no one can miss that cool hot rod-style tall gearshift leaver.The moment you pop the hood at the car show everyone will know you have something special. After all, ow many F-100 pickups do you see with a clamshell hood? And once people get closer, hey will see this beast of a motor shining brightly in the super-slick engine bay. This is a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8 that's been upgraded with performance goodies such as a Holley Double Pumper carburetor, delbrock aluminum intake, SD distributor, ord Motorsport finned valve covers, nd headers that connect to wicked sounding dual exhaust. The truck handles great on the road thanks to a Mustang subframe up front and a remote controlled air ride suspension for the rear. Traction is well in hand because those whitewall tires are really modern BF Goodrich radials. And being both good on the street and the strip seems to be this pickup's theme. It has a five-speed ZF manual transmission, hich means you can always be in the best gear to get the most out of the motor, r you can simply cruise effortless in overdrive. In fact, onsidering this is a power steering car with disc brakes up front, ou can easily drive to car shows many states away without breaking a sweat. This custom build perfectly combines classic looks, odern conveniences, nd high horsepower. This fine Ford has already been getting a ton of attention in our showroom. Don't today!!
