1956 Ford F100 shortbed stepside California pickup, Big Back window. The only year Ford offered the panoramic window in the front and the back, and this truck has both! If you are building a very high end show truck, this is the one to own. Painted in flat black with red and chrome accents. Engine is a 351 Cleveland 4V with a manual three speed transmission and Granny gear. Front clip is the flip type that opens for very easy access to work on the whole engine, brakes and suspension. It has an original suspension in good shape so it runs like a 1956 truck but faster with the HP engine. Licensed and registered in California, last owner used it every day. Interior is original with the addition of two comfortable captain seats in cool velour. It sports red painted original wheels, 1957 Ford car hubcaps, 1955 grill and tinted windows. Price is right for a Big Window truck you can jump in and drive every day. If you are far away, I welcome third party inspections, and I have many more pictures to send if you need. Please check with your wife, dog, wallet and garage space before spending your and my time. Thanks for looking!
Pick of the Day is a like-new Ford F100

Brothers like to build, and now there’s a dad-and-daughter project in the works, too

The yellow-and-maroon paint scheme may not be to everyone’s liking, but the seller of the Pick of the Day, a 1956 Ford F-100, notes that the pickup is a “very original” fat-fender example
My oldest son, Rob, and I purchased an old farm truck that had almost as much rust as it did clean metal.
Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
