1956 Ford F-100 Long Bed - All Original "Rare"
I am listing my 1956 F-100 Long Bed for sale. This is such a rare truck with less than (estimated) 15K Long Bed's being produced. This truck was a barn find and has been garage kept. This truck has been kept in it's original factory condition other than the very few items listed below. The remarkable condition of this truck puts this 1956 Ford F100 in a very rare category. The specs are:

I bought this truck from an older gentlemen that purchased it from an estate auction of the original owner's family. This vehicle is completely untouched and has been uniquely preserved. I have a clean title and a copy of the original title from the original owner titled 05/16/59. 1956 F100 antique appraisers that have seen this truck have commented that this is a once in a lifetime find, they are surprised by how solid, and rust free the truck has remained.
1956 was the first year that Ford put an 8' bed on a ½ ton pickup truck. It has been reported that in 1956, 137,581 short bed trucks where produced, with only 15K long beds being made. Over the years many have been converted to street rods, salvaged for parts, or shortened into a 6ft bed, reducing the number of long bed survivors.
This Ford F100 is all original and in perfect mechanical condition. The second generation of Ford's F-Series truck line was one of the first post-war pickups to gain collector status as happy Ford owners began holding onto these trucks in the 1970s. A lot of these trucks, however, saw engine swaps and less than authentic restorations, which makes a bone stock find exceedingly rare today. Another interesting fact is that this was the only year of this generation that had a wrap-around windshield.

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.
