FUEL INJECTED 302 V8, OD TRANS, ALUM HEADS, 4 WHL DISCS, PWR LEATHER SEATS, NICE

The 1956 Ford F-100 is one of the best trucks around to turn into a screamin' 340 hp V8 hot rod. And as you take a closer look at this one, you'll realize it's really the cream of the crop.

There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools Ford Motor Division ever built. The upright nature of the wraparound windshield cab has a cool aggressive contrast with this custom's forward-leaning stance. The rest of the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. This one had a serious investment from top to bottom that resulted in a near laser-straight truck. It was then covered in a jade green that makes this jewel standout from the rest of the classic pickups. Fit and finish are very nice, and not a single Ford curve or corner was modified to get this look. Even the original badges on the side of the hood and doors remain in place. They act like pointers to the dazzling chrome front grille, and bumper. Out back there's even more brightwork on the bumper and the exhaust tips that are a cool touch peeking out from underneath the stylized fenders. With all this shiny glamour, the real wood truck bed is a very nice contrast.

Inside there's the perfect mix of old and new worlds. The comfortable, powered leather bucket seats are from a late-model vehicle. Anyone who thinks this is sacrilegious in a classic blue oval pickup will change his mind after comparing how comfortable these are to the standard bench. The driver gets a cool new sports steering wheel on a full chrome column. Beyond that are a full set of AutoMeter gauges set in a bright panel to keep all the smart bits looking sexy. But even with these upgrades, the whole dashboard retains its original-style appearance, even with the bright green paint and modern AM/FM/CD stereo installed.

It's always nice to see a Ford engine in a Ford vehicle, and the 302 cubic inch V8 crate motor is the perfect match to give this pickup the performance that its style suggests. Plus, you can tell that this was a huge investment with GT40 aluminum heads, MSD distributor, and especially the Edelbrock Pro-Flo fuel injection system. That's right...turn key fuel injection! The full package is rated at 340 hp, and the dual exhaust does a great job of announcing this monster motor to everyone. Getting all this power to the ground is Ford's four-speed transmission that feed a stout 9-inch rear end. But power is nothing without control, and that's why you'll see a whole host of upgrades in the undercarriage photos. This includes an independent front suspension with tubular upper and lower A-arms, and there's a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. This is backed up by four-wheel disc brakes, with modern BG Goodrich rubber on polished MB Motoring wheels. But, as much as all of this is for performance, it also sounds like a much more comfortable ride, right? That's why this pickup also has great features like the overdrive transmission and power steering. So feel free to intimidate everyone on a Saturday night cruise, or simply go for a lazy Sunday drive.

A beautifully built, well sorted pickup, with details that will make everyone stop and admire it. What could be better? How about a price that beats just about any other comparable '56 F100 out there! Call today!!
