There are new trucks available now that aren't as nicely finished and comfortable as this 1956 Ford F-100. Packing a performance Ford V8, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and a loaded A/C interior, this beautiful pickup is a custom that really can do it all.
There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools Ford Motor Division ever built, and this is the cream of the crop. The cab's aggressive forward-leaning stance is enhanced on this one with a cool lowered suspension. The rest of the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. You can see a serious investment from top to bottom that resulted in a laser-straight truck. It was then dipped in a red so tasty that you'll swear it was candy. Fit and finish are very nice, and not a single Ford curve or corner was modified to get this look. Even the original badges on the side of the hood and doors remain in place. They act like pointers to the dazzling new chrome front grille and bumper. While this Ford is a show-stopper, don't be surprised if people actually spend more time looking at the rear of this one. That's because it has interesting features such as the rare wraparound big back window and a brand new oak wood bed.
Open the door and you can see instantly that this is a custom build with a lot of money invested. The standard bench seat has been replaced with a custom leather setup that provides sculpted seating for the driver and passenger. The same leather is utilized on the headliner and the custom door panels for a very luxurious feel. In fact, this pickup was built with modern comfort in mind with features like power windows, AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth connection, and R134a air conditioning. But while those keep the passengers happy, this is a true driver's pickup. There is a custom three-spoke steering wheel with Ford's famous oval logo in the middle. Beyond that is an upgraded full digital gauge package, and no one can miss that cool Lokar gearshift leaver.
There's a very good reason this pickup has a clamshell hood like a sports car – its 5.0-liter Ford Power Sports crate motor can make coupes jealous. It looks fantastic in the engine bay with features like the polished Ford Racing valve covers, air cleaner, A/C compressor, pulleys, and much more. But beyond its style is some serious substance. There are performance components like an Edelbrock Hi-rise intake, Weber four-barrel carburetor, flamethrower distributor, electric fan, and ceramic headers. Sure this makes some big power and a sweet rumble from the dual exhaust, but this pickup was built to be a great driver, too. That's why the V8 is mated to a four-speed transmission with overdrive. A Mustang II-style independent front suspension is a common upgrade on premium pickups, but this one has been enhanced even further with upgraded A-arms and shocks. The final piece to this great driving package are four wheel disc brakes that are connected to modern Kumho tires through the 17-inch Billet Specialties alloy wheels.
This custom build perfectly combines classic looks, modern conveniences, and high horsepower. This fine Ford is turnkey ready to take you on long trips in comfort, haul home awards, or both! Don't wait...call today!!!
