Travel Back in Time With This 1956 Ford F-100
In a world of crazy, over the top, and “look at me” custom trucks, sometimes all you want is a simple and nicely done old Ford. One that doesn’t have huge chrome wheels, a shaved body, or an air bag equipped suspension. Just a tasteful, clean, modern classic.
A truck just like this 1956 Ford F-100. First impressions might lead you to believe that it’s mostly stock, but upgrades have been made where it counts – namely to the drivetrain and the interior. But let’s talk about that gorgeous exterior first. The place where the magic really begins.
That dreamy Sky Blue paint was applied to a super straight body, with all new chrome everywhere. The rolling stock is a nice nod to the past, with white painted steel wheels and wide white tires to keep things extra classy.
Once you finally get tired of looking at that beautiful body, you’ll notice that the interior is a nice place to be as well. The gray and blue seats look inviting and comfortable, and the Dolphin gauges continue the retro theme perfectly. A Vintage Air setup promises to keep you cool on those hot summer cruise nights.
Power comes not from one of those underpowered ’50s V8s, but from a rebuilt 351 Windsor. A C4 transmission backs it up and sends power to a 3.73 geared rear-end.
This 1956 Ford F-100 is a perfect example of a modern classic. A truck that features only subtle appearance upgrades to retain the original character, yet the mechanicals and comfort features necessary to make it a suitable driver have been added. Simply put, this is one gorgeous example of an early Ford.
