This 1956 Ford F-100 is an interesting classic. After all, it has the iconic vintage pickup look, but it has the kind of stance that tells you there's some extra V8 power under the hood. So no matter if you're looking for a cool classic or a little hot rod flair, this has it all... and all for an affordable price.
These later 2nd-gen F-Series trucks are all about the curves. Curved windshield, shapely fenders, and a rounded hood has a great classic style. The off-white paint has a good gloss, but overall, it has the kind of finish you want on a pickup with workman attitude. This has great vintage details, like the real wood in the truck bed, correct badging, step plates, and two-piece wheel trim. Plus, the front bumper and grille have a particularly bright shine to put a nice face forward. But the lowered stance and aerodynamic folding tonneau cover also give this classic a hint of performance, too.
Just like the exterior, the interior has been updated without being overdone. The upgraded bench seat is far plusher than what you got in the 1950s, and it's covered in a comfy velour. The two-tone gray on the seat is continued on the door panels and coordinates with the carpeting for a nice look. The upgraded Bell four-spoke steering wheel gives you a feeling of both vintage and performance. Beyond that, the full dash has a great classic look, right down to the AM radio that's still on display.
Under the hood you can immediately spot the upgrade. The 350 cubic-inch V8 is a larger displacement than just about anything that was available across the F-Series line in '56. It has even been given a Edelbrock upgrade kit in the best places with the valve covers, intake, and new four-barrel carburetor. The V8 fires up eagerly, and the upgraded dual exhaust has subtle but sweet rumble. The TH350 three-speed automatic transmission is an addition to make this a great cruiser. The same goes for the upgraded independent front end, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
This is the classic truck with some extra personality. It makes for a terrific affordable package that's ready to run right now. Call today!!!
