This 1956 Ford F-100 Is One Handsome Beast

Ford F-100

Some trucks are pretty, some are fast, some are ratty and rad. But others, like this 1956 Ford F-100 are simply well rounded and grounded. The owner has given it everything you need and want, and nothing else. It may not be flashy, but it sure is handsome.

We’ll start with the exterior, which features a nice dark blue paint job laid down on a mostly stock body. The chrome is all new, and the body is all steel except for a set of fiberglass rear fenders. Billet Specialties wheels fit the truck perfectly, and rear tubs give the clearance necessary for a set of honkin’ Mickey Thompson 29×15.00R15LT tires.

The 302 you see under the hood has been rebuilt with roller rockers, H-beam rods, a bigger cam, and aluminum heads. Four wheel disc brakes slow things down in a hurry and reliably. The truck rides on a modern suspension as well. An SPC setup in the front, along with coil overs and tubular arms in the back make up the modern setup.

The interior is a nice place to be, with custom stitching surrounding Auto Meter gauges, a billet steering wheel, vintage style radio, and a tilt steering column. Everywhere you look, it’s just simple, clean goodness. That’s the definition of well rounded, and this 1956 Ford f-100 checks all the boxes and more.
