"In an effort to match the sales of the new Chevy pickups that had debuted last year, Ford's F-Series trucks were revamped for the 1956 model year. Along with a new grille, the most noticeable change was the full wrap windshield, which extended over to the door posts, increasing the field of vision. A full wrap window was also available for the rear window, and today is one of the most sought-after options. 6,200 F100's came equipped with the larger rear window. The 1956 Ford F-100 pickup brought such instant acceptance it went on to become a heavy-hitter among fans of classic trucks."
