1956 Ford F-100 Big Window Pickup
This beautiful 1956 Ford F-100 has that big rear window and was professionally redone to take it to a whole other level. How do you take the classic stylings of the '56 Ford and make it a high end one of a kind custom with modern performance? Well you take it to Bodie Stroud Industries. BSI is based in California and the owner/builder Bodie made is television debut in 2004 after appearing on Jesse James's Discovery Channel hit "Monster Garage." He would later go on to win the Ford Design Award and "Best of Show at Sema" with a Ford Starliner. He made multile TV appearance on various shows like "Jay Leno's Garage", "Rock My RV", and of course "Hot Rod TV" which highlighted....you guessed it, a custom 1956 Ford Pickup Truck. He has been highlighted in many magazines for various builds and his Pickups were a topic in a recent Motor Trend article where he stated "When most people think about classic trucks, what comes to mind is usually the 1956 F-100, it's one of the most timeless designs of all time." Due to his love of these trucks he dreamt of a classic Pickup with modern performance and comfort you would find in a brand new sport truck.
If we haven't convinced you that the beautiful F-100 you see here had a qualified builder than nothing ever will. BSI has proven to be one of the top, if not the top builders of these classic trucks. This '56 is truly a masterpiece with everything being extremely well done and not a single bolt left untouched. It has been appraised for $192,000 and received the top rating of "excellent" across the board. This truck was completely disassembled in order to hide top of the line modern features under the already great looking exterior. The paint is an extremely slick bright Red paint that looks just as good as it did the day it was finished. The all steel body was smoothed and filled removing all emblems and they also took it a step further to add hidden door hinges and smooth the tailgate to complete the sleek looking exterior. They even relocated the custom stainless steel gas tank (with electric fuel pump and custom fuel filter system) to below the bed. This eliminates the external filler and you know fill it up through a nicely tucked away chrome filler. Speaking of the bed, nothing says classic truck like a nice wood bed. This was has been completed in with a very nice Oak floor with stainless runners and is absolutely beautiful. It has also been tubbed with the smooth inner fenders being painted to match. All of the glass including that rare big rear window and antiglare windshield is in great condition with zero issues and all custom tinted. It has a nice chrome front grill and chrome front bumper but in back the bumper was removed and a custom roll pan fabricated. Other very cleanly laid out exterior features include the frenched rear lights, halogen headlights, stock turn signals, chrome windshield wipers, chrome side mirrors and custom tailgate hardware. The truck has a great looking stance and rides on nicely shining Boze polished aluminum wheels with Mickey Thompson tires.
If you thought Bodie was the only notable name involved in the build then take a look online at QMP racing. What originally started as a garage engine building operation quickly exploded into a full blown Racing motor machine shop. These guys have been doing this work professionally for years and have many motors being used by big names in the automotive and boat racing world. The balanced and blueprinted 351 ci Windsor motor was fully built top to bottom by them. It features a smoothed & painted to match block, aluminum heads, polished aluminum water pump, Holley 850 cfm carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, polished billet pulleys with serpentine belt, chrome Powermaster alternator, polished Sanden AC compressor, MSD plug wires, MSD distributor, MSD ignition, MSD blaster coil, a custom power steering reservoir, chrome breathers, all polished aluminum brackets, custom motor mounts, polished stainless lines, and braided lines. With a look like this truck has you know it has the motor to back it up and this thing provides plenty of power. Plus it is all Ford which is nice to see in a world where many would have just got the simpler crate 350 Chevy route. The truck has a front tilt hood with a chrome No Limit latch and polished aluminum cantilever hood hinges. It opens up to reveal a motor that is like a work of art. It is topped with a chrome air cleaner and QMP left their mark with custom made QMP valve covers. Everything under the hood is very cleanly done with custom smooth inner fenders, smoothed/filled firewall, and a custom radiator mount for the custom polished aluminum radiator and custom aluminum fan shroud.
Take a peak under the truck and you will see the undercarriage received the same treatment. It is sitting on a custom BSI fabricated frame (with custom rear sub frame) and everything is either chromed, polished, or painted to match the body. Mated to the engine is a Monster transmissions built 3 speed automatic with a shift kit which is synced to the motor and uses frame mounted transmission cooler.
We aren't done yet because it is time to bring another big name into the mix. With a vehicle of this status you can't just throw some vinyl inside and call it done. So it was taken to the high end upholstery shop known as Bill Dunn's One Stop Shop in Huntington Beach.
