For Sale: 1956 Ford F100 in Fallbrook, California


Vehicle Description

This truck has been completely disassembled; each system carefully planned to perform in unity. The frame is a combination of the original Ford rails, which are boxed and include additional cross members and second generation Camaro front sub-frame. The result is a solid foundation capable of modern performance and handling. The truck is “all steel” and the cab is one of the cleanest I've seen; completely rust free. The running boards, rear fenders and entire bed assembly are all new steel. Ride Tech RidePro digital air suspension, with Strong Arm control arms, up front, and adjustable Shock waves. The rear uses Poses leafs with RideTech Air over leaf bags and QA1 adjustable aluminum shocks. CPP sway bars front and rear. The gas tank is a CPP 20 gallon aluminum unit relocated to the rear of the frame. The truck sits right while parked yet retains a smooth ride. The wheels are American Torq-Thrust M series; the front are 17 x 9 and the rear are 17 x 10.5. Tires are Yokohama S-drives; the front are 255-40-17 and the rears are 275-40-17. The drive train is a reliable 290 hp Chevrolet crate engine, turbo 350, and 12-bolt rear with all the right accessories (most everything is polished chrome and aluminum) to look good and provide years of dependable performance. The entire truck has been modernized; 21-circuit wiring harness, new AutoMeter gauges, Flaming River tilt steering column, Southern Air heat/ac system with billet controls, power windows, new tinted glass, and a modern audio system (USB, Pandora, XM radio, CD, and BlueTooth). The body has many subtle modifications, which need to be seen in person to appreciate. Nothing too wild, just smooth and clean. All trim is shaved and all seams filled, the door jams are modernized (no old school locks) with double-catch Bear claw units, key-less remote entry, and one-piece side glass. The bed is custom made by Dan Carpenter from North Carolina (he does incredible work); three inches wider than stock (stock width beds just look too small in my opinion), no stake pockets, tapered side post, custom roll pan, widened smooth tail gate, four-inch widened inner wheel-wells, and the bed floor is raised four inches. The bed wood is stained a dark mahogany to match the stainless three spoke Grant steering wheel. The Flaming River tilt column is also polished stainless. Paint is House of Color Platinum pear metallic and Sunset orange pearl metallic. The stripping, by Dennis Ricklefs, is white gold leaf, which is hand-turned and bordered with orange and blue stripes. The real stand-out on this truck is the custom leather interior. Frank Lopez and his son Frank Jr., out of Temecula, CA, spent four months hand building and fitting each panel before covering everything in yards of Napa leather and Mercedes square-weave carpet. There is a tasteful amount of polished billet trim to create contrast within the cab. If you have questions then feel free to ask.
