CUSTOM, 351 WINDSOR, 5 SPD MAN, A/C, BIG BACK WIN, PWR STEER/BRAKES, EXC PAINT!

There are new trucks you can buy on the showroom floor that aren't as nicely finished and comfortable as this 1956 Ford F-100. Packing V8 power, a five speed manual transmission, a high-visibility paint job, and all the creature comforts you'd expect, this beautiful pickup is a secret hot rod that really can do it all.

There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools ever built. With that aggressive forward-canted attitude (further emphasized by the custom stance,) the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. This one is custom creation, but it keeps many of the original pieces like the chrome bumpers, door handles, and badging, to travel a bit incognito and keep its vintage style. Fit and finish are good all around, and the deep red shine always looks fantastic on these models. 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, a pristine real wood truck bed, and while this pickup tries to fly under the radar with original-style hubcaps, there is no hiding the massive rear wheels.

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, with sculpted seating for the driver and passenger. The black and red color scheme is continued everywhere on the interior, including the door panels, carpets, and headliner. Everyone gets to take advantage of the power windows, cup holders, power locks, AM/FM/XM/CD stereo, and R-134a air conditioning, but this is a true driver's pickup. There is a custom three-spoke steering wheel with Ford's famous V8 logo in the middle. Beyond that is an upgraded full gauge package with classic looking instruments, and no one can miss that cool hot rod-style tall gearshift leaver.

The moment you pop the hood at the car show everyone will know you have something special. After all, how many F-100 pickups do you see with a clamshell hood? And once people get closer, they will see this beast of a motor shining brightly in the super-slick engine bay. This is a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8 that's been upgraded with performance goodies such as a Holley Double Pumper carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, MSD distributor, Ford Motorsport finned valve covers, and headers that connect to wicked sounding dual exhaust. The truck handles great on the road thanks to a Mustang subframe up front and a remote controlled air ride suspension for the rear. Traction is well in hand because those whitewall tires are really modern BF Goodrich radials. And being both good on the street and the strip seems to be this pickup's theme. It has a five-speed ZF manual transmission, which means you can always be in the best gear to get the most out of the motor, or you can simply cruise effortless in overdrive. In fact, considering this is a power steering car with disc brakes up front, you can easily drive to car shows many states away without breaking a sweat.

This custom build perfectly combines classic looks, modern conveniences, and high horsepower. This fine Ford has already been getting a ton of attention in our showroom. Don't wait...call today!!
