MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this frame off�nut and bolt restored�1955 Ford F-350 Stakebed Dualie Truck. This vehicle was originally built in Ford's Chicago, Illinois (VIN code G) assembly plant and has been authentically restored to its original condition and color by Hard Reproductions in Rolla, Missouri, about two hour's drive southwest of St. Louis. The restoration took over 2 years and was done as a money is no object build. Show the truck and win trophies or turn it into an advertising write off for your company! Re-finished in its original Meadow Green, the truck's paint and trim, including the white grille, are in overall excellent order but the F-350 badges that belong on the sides of the hood are missing. The glass panels, including the one piece curved windshield and 48-inch wide rear window, are clear and intact and the truck's lights are clear. The horn is inoperable. One of the distinguishing F-350 features is its ventilated-disc wheels. Here, they are painted black and are surrounded by 7.50-17 tires in front and 7.50-16 light truck tires in the rear. All of the body panels on its 130-inch wheelbase are straight, including its double-wall steel doors and steel rub rails, and solid. Behind the cab is a nine-foot long flatbed platform with mounting holes for wooden or metal stakes. It is in very good order, as is the truck's black front bumper and the engine bay is exceptionally tidy and very well presented. Under that hood is a rebuilt 223 CID inline six-cylinder (VIN code D) engine linked to a rebuilt four-speed heavy-duty manual transmission. All of the truck's bearings and seals have been replaced, it features a reproduction radiator, fuel tank, lights and trim pieces. Inside, the restoration continues with a dark green bench seat that is in very good order, black floor mats (no carpet here; this is a work truck!) and a good, workaday headliner. The metal instrument panel has complete instrumentation, is painted the same color as the body and looks keen! The original three-spoke steering wheel is present and the inner door panels present the same Meadow Green as the rest of the body. The mirror glass looks good and the shifter is in good shape. There is no radio but there is a heater under the instrument panel. Ford redesigned the F-Series�for 1953 with a more integrated look. The pickups also obtained their widely familiar names: The F-1 now became the�F-100, the F-2 and F-3 now became the�F-250 and the F-4 now became the 1-ton�F-350. Optional interior amenities were new, including a dome light, lighter, armrests, sun visors and a radio. There were few changes again for the �55 F100 over the �53 and �54. A new grille was designed for the �55 F100 as well as matching chrome parts. Side chrome hood trim became more elaborate rather than the simpler block F100 letters from the �53 and �54. A custom cab option was available on the �55 F100. A custom cab truck came with chrome Custom Cab door emblems. Some paint colors changed for the �55 F100. Engine combinations remained the same on the �54 and �55 F100. The�six-cylinder engine's�displacement was increased from 215 to 223 CID and power steering was introduced as an option. All were overhead valve engines. Ford claimed a 30 percent share of the truck market in 1955. Competition to this F-350 in 1955 included Chevrolet's Task Force truck, Dodge's C-series truck, GMC's Blue Chip truck and Mercury's M-4 truck (Canada only). This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 71,868 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title.
