1956 Ford F-100 with Coyote V8 is Nearly Perfect

Seafoam green, a bed lined with polished wood, and a brand new 5.0-liter Coyote V8, all stuffed into a 1956 F-100. If you were to ask me how to build the perfect classic pickup truck, it would look almost exactly like this.

Mated to that modern, 420 horsepower V8 is a Ford 4-speed automatic and a 9-inch rear axle. The suspension has also been upgraded and you will find new disk brakes in all four corners. If this truck had a manual transmission, it would be exactly what I always dreamed of. Now if only I had $115,000 I could take this one home.

The truck as you see it here is currently up for sale the RK Motors Charlotte, and it has more upgrades that what I listed above. On top of the new drivetrain improvements, there is a custom leather interior, heated seats with massage, a rearview camera and a modern stereo. There is even air conditioning. It’s all the modern power, drivability and technology of a brand new truck, wrapped up in the greatest pickup design of all time.

If you want to see more of this cool truck, you can see the rest of the photos over on the RK Motors website, or you can just watch this fancy video overview of the truck below.
