Rare 1957 F-100 is an Underappreciated Gem

By -


When was the last time you saw a 1957 F-100?  For whatever reason, this particular model year isn’t one that you’ll commonly see at your local car show or cruise night.  This is the model year that ushered in the third generation of the F-100, we’d argue that it’s every bit as good looking as those that came before it.

And this particular ’57 is a real looker.  It truly stands out from the crowd with its retro exterior appearance, which is punctuated by those bright red wheels and chrome caps.  A smooth white body completes the extra clean look, with most of the factory trim pieces intact.


This Custom Cab isn’t just a pretty face, however, it’s a real driver as well.  A rebuilt 351 provides motivation, and all the requisite modern upgrades have been added – power brakes, power steering, and a Vintage Air setup all make it work better on the street.

The 1957 F-100 represented a big departure from the previous model years, ditching the round fenders for integrated ones and significantly modernizing Ford’s line of pickups.  While its popularity today pales in comparison to those older trucks (and even subsequent generations), it’s hard to argue that they aren’t more deserving.

This particular ’57 is a true testament to what is possible with just a few tasteful upgrades.  And that alone makes them deserving of a little appreciation.
