What makes a top pedigree classic? Nice V8 power? A butter-smooth body with something new to see on every inch? A custom-built interior? A fully coordinated build where even places where most people don't see follow the color theme? Well, it's all that and a lot more that makes this 1957 Ford F-100 a one-of-a-kind that you'll never forget.
<br><br> No expense was spared in taking this pickup to the ultimate level. Let's start with the most obvious part of this car, the spectacular paintwork. The burgundy and champagne give this a immediate upper-class presence to make sure everyone knows this F-Series has left its workman roots behind long ago. We especially like the way the champagne upper section has a golden glow of a quality metallic finish. These are separated by a double set of red pinstripes with a luminescent foil in-between. Since this extends through the door jambs, you know they spent a small fortune on the paint alone. Even the Ford lettering in the tailgate was done to match. Then the whole package was cleared over to deliver something that's smooth, shining, and absolutely attention-grabbing. The color-matched tonneau was even flush-mounted to make sure the custom truck looks sleek. Adding to this bright overall package are the chrome bumpers, clear headlights, and polished 20-inch Boyd Coddington wheels. The detail work is amazing with everything from the Ford lightning bolt emblems in the doors, to the custom exhaust centrally integrated right below the tailgate. And the full air ride suspension means you dial-in whatever stance you want to show off this whole package.
<br><br> Pop the remote door openers to reveal a full custom interior. The exterior maroon returns on the door tops and dash, and now it's joined by two tones of tasteful tan. You get a high-back seating with a fold-down center console. It was borrowed from a much later F-150 and then re-covered in a supple leather to coordinate with the door panels. There are ton of great comfort features, including power windows, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for R134a air conditioning. The dash even nicely integrates your control for the air ride suspension. It's a driver-oriented setup with a leather wrapped steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. This gives you to a clear view to the full AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauge panel with large speedo and tach.
<br><br> The engine bay is dressed to impress. The 292 cubic-inch V8 that has been given the same level of top-quality work as the rest of the car. So the super-smooth inner fenders and firewall are looking awesome as they funnel your attention to the shining motor in the middle. We dare you to find another component that can be polished on this award-worthy package. This is a year-correct block, and it earns those Thunderbird valve covers by sharing the same displacement as that porthole icon. And this motor was also made to move. That's why you have an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition, and headers feeding the sweet-sounding dual exhaust. As you look underneath this truck, it has the kind of polished and color-matched presentation that will have you putting a mirror underneath at car shows. Plus, you'll also spot nice suspension pieces like the tubular A-arm front end and four-link rear with stabilizer link. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and a three-speed automatic transmission featuring Gear Vendors overdrive to make to make it easy to show this one off near or far.
<br><br> This truck has been given the best of everything. So if you're ready to turn heads and win awards, call today!
