1956 Ford F-100 Custom CabThis 1956 Ford F-100 Custom Cab mixes its bold looks with plenty of vintage style. And it all makes for an irresistible package, especially with the value price on this curvy classic pickup.
You have to love the overall execution of this pickup. These 1950s F-Series trucks have some nice curves, and this is even from the year of the wraparound windshield. The yellow paint is an attractive way to stand out, and it's so vibrant that it looks like it could even glow in the dark! There's even more brightness coming from the full chrome package. You have a great look on classic pieces like the large grille and mirror-like bumpers. Plus, this has cool upgrades like the smoothie wheels and chrome running boards. It all makes for a bold look, but it never loses that classic pickup vibe that's everywhere from the texture of the finish to the real wood in the truck bed.
The yellow and chrome continues inside for a nice uniform feeling. But it's also joined by a tasteful brown to give you a more easy-going and comfortable total atmosphere. That's why you have a quality details, like the cloth insert in the button-top seatback and handsome matching door panels. The steering wheel is the thin/grippy classic unit with Ford's power stroke logo in the center. In fact, you'll love the vintage details everywhere from the heater under the dash, to the kind of artful speedometer that looked like it could have been shared with Ford's car program.
The full blackout of the engine bay's inner walls mean you can't help but be attracted to the motor in the middle. It's awesome that they painted the long block to coordinate with the exterior yellow. Plus, the 233 cubic-inch straight-six is the kind of motor we don't see too often anymore. So while we all know there are plenty of big V8s that will easily fit in here, this one already has a very cool and distinctive style. And it's all proudly done with plenty of shine from the valve covers, air grabber, radiator shroud, alternator, steel braided lines, and more. This powerhouse fires up easily and gives you that smooth feeling that only an inline motor can offer. And you take proper control with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. Add in the power brakes, front discs, and modern cruising tires, and this bright yellow pickup is ready to hit the road.
This is an affordable mix of vintage style and upgraded fun, and it's all done in a unique and attractive package. Call now!
