Here's the truck that defines "Old School." This 1955 Ford F-100
has a timeless style, legendary V8 power, and the kind of gloss
that makes you instantly nostalgic. It's a clean and comfortable
true classic, right down to the whitewalls.
This truck has an instant appeal. The light yellow paint is a great
color to represent this era. You can tell that it has been applied
with a careful hand just by the way it lest the light show off
those curvy fenders. The mirror-like chrome bumpers, bezels, and
trim also love the sunshine. But you can tell this one wants
admiration for more than just the shine. The clean glass, clear
lights, pliable weather-stripping, and doors that shut solid give
this a proper quality feel. All the pieces that make a great '50s
Ford truck are present and looking great, right down to details
like the step plates and working cowl. Plus, the off-white on the
grille lets it stand out from the pale yellow. And on a true
classic like this, there's attractive real wood on the truck bed
The interior continues the truck's vintage vibe. The smooth dash,
clean/simple door panels, a matching headliner, and rubber floor
make this feel like a proper old-school truck. Just like the
exterior, even the details are right, like the large three-spoke
steering wheel, pedals, and even the working heater box. But this
does deviate from a pure time machine with the right
well-integrated upgrades. The bench seat is now finished on a more
comfortable velour. And there are provisions for you to add a
stereo in case you feel like choosing your favorite Sunday driving
Under this hood is a great Ford motor. They were just starting to
move beyond the flathead V8 in 1955, and a 272 cubic-inch OHV motor
like this was the latest and one of the largest. And the clean but
honest style of this engine bay and bold red block make it easy to
tell this story. This is also now on a 12-volt system and even has
an updated MSD coil. That makes for a stronger feeling to this
classic setup. The motor fires up easily, and the column
three-speed manual transmission shifts crisply. As you look
underneath, you can also see a clean style from good investment and
a modern tread on the classic-looking whitewalls.
This is a true classic that also has the V8 power and the right
investments for you to enjoy today. Don't miss this pickup. Call
