Ford Motor Company was ready to redesign their F-series truck for the first time since inception and focused both on capability and design. The newly appointed truck was given an expanded cab, stylish new grille, longer hood which flowed all the way to the front fenders and a new cargo bed which gave 6 ½ feet by 20 inches of available space to its owner. The facelift was a nice touch but with improvements made to wheelbase by expanding it, a longer set of front and rear leaf springs fitted to it giving it not only a better feel while driving but without giving up hauling abilities and even an improved turning radius, this truck was the best that had come out of the Ford factories since imagined.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this professionally restored example of the 1955 Ford F-100 for your consideration. With a great deal of its original look intact, many great additions inserted throughout the interior and a massive powertrain compared to its first, this vehicle is not only dressed to impress but walks the talk too. The exterior sits as original but with a brighter, more prominent color including its sharp looking flames over the hood and front fenders, the grill and front bumper smothered in chrome as is the trim to add to its looks, the wheels are body matched but with chrome caps and trim and the rear taillights host the Ford insignia overtop. The bed has a body matched and fitted metal top which is hydraulically operated giving protection to its beautiful wood covered floor underneath and from top to bottom it is clear to see how well the build was completed. With no corners cut, the mechanical side is equally impressive as the exterior. Its powerful 390 V8 engine is believed to put out 400 horsepower, the C6 transmission is durable and reliable, the suspension is an air-ride system with controls and monitor within the cabin, power steering, power brakes and even discs in the front were added which all adds to the comfort and convenience of this beautiful example.
The interior brings more modern comforts to its owner as it hosts power windows, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 capable media center is installed, the gauges are all new and working, the plush grey leather interior wraps from the dash to the seats but with a body matching painted upper dash adding that sharp look to the interior. This vehicle was picked to be on the cover of the Woodward Dream Cruise calendar for a reason which is a high honor for any car or truck and we even have the pleasure to offer you that very calendar with the sale! Professionally built, wonderfully modified and all the comfort to drive, call or email us today to get a closer look at this awesome classic custom!
