Do you have a business to promote or just want to make a splash at
car shows? Imagine parking this vintage 1956 Ford F-250 flatbed at
your front door and/or taking up a couple of spaces at an
enthusiast event. And with a V8 upgrade, it still knows how to get
the job done.
The bright red paint gets this truck noticed. There's a good gloss
and shine to show off the classic Ford curves of the cab. And let's
face it, people are going to marvel at the condition because most
of these F-250s were used up as lifelong workhorses. While the
truck looks good, this is a vehicle that's still ready for
industrial use. The flatbed in the back has a nice presentation
with a wood floor painted red. And this can also be quite useful
with tie-down loops along the parameter and places to stakes in a
rear for a tailgate. There are more useful details, like the proper
trailer hitch, running boards, and the kind of steel bumpers that
can push obstacles out of the way. More than just industrial-grade
customization, this one has some cool added style. It's in places,
like the distinct gold-painted grille and these bright 17-inch
Vision wheels are extra-duty 8-lug units that resemble closely to
what you can get on some modern Ford Super Duty trucks.
The interior continues the full red package, and now you also can
see that the gold grille on the exterior is a preview of the
secondary color on the carpeting and seats. The driver gets a very
vintage setup with the smooth classic metal dash, factory speedo,
and large steering wheel with the truck's classic lighting gear
logo at the center. You will also spot auxiliary gauges cleanly
mounted below the dash, because this truck is made for driving. The
San Francisco 49ers logos in the seatbacks reveal the motivation
behind the color theme seen all over this truck. But even if you're
a Seahawks or Cowboys fan, you can appreciate the overall
attractiveness and comprehensive quality that this full package has
(you just may need to put a red blanket over the seatback.)
The VIN tells us that this was born with a straight-six. That was
fine in 1956, but today we can do much better. That's why this one
has been upgraded to the Ford's 351m V8. These are hardy mid-block
motors that are great for truck duty. This one even exhales with
added power and authority thanks to headers feeding the Flowmaster
dual exhaust. It's the kind of power package you want in a useful
truck like this. And you know it's built to be a driver with
features like an aluminum radiator, separate trans cooler, and the
extra-duty C6 three-speed automatic transmission. But don't forget
that this is also built for vintage nostalgia, and so it gives you
a true feeling of the road like only a classic pickup can.
This one is a great way to haul your toys or stencil a logo on the
side to promote your business. Heck, this F-250 is just a lot of
fun all on its own without any of that, too. Call today!!!
