1956 Ford F-100

There are plenty of gorgeous ’50s F-100 trucks out there. All of them with high-dollar paint jobs, new chrome, and fancy custom interiors. Most of them, with crate small blocks under the hood. Hence, most guys eschew top power for reliability, or don’t worry about it because they rarely drive the thing to begin with.

The owner of this stunning 1956 Ford F-100 decided that he wanted it all. And who are we to deny it to him? That’s why you’ll find nothing less than a 428 under the curvy hood. It has fittingly been dressed up just as nicely as the rest, with various Cobra performance valve covers and goodies.

The big motor is just part of the story, of course. The rest of this 1956 Ford F-100 is top notch. Starting with the nearly perfect body, it’s laser straight, tight-gapped, and covered in Emerald Green paint as deep as the ocean. Although the badges and door handles were shaved, the remainder of the chrome was thankfully retained. Billet Specialties wheels are a perfect fit for the stunning exterior.

While the exterior is beautiful, the inside is just as nice. The custom bucket seats, steering wheel, headliner, and door panels are all finished in leather. Modern comfort is the theme here, with power windows and seats, digital gauges, and a newer stereo. Therefore, adding up to a very nice and cozy place to be.

As a result, it all adds up to one of the nicest Fords you will see, and it’s no slouch like most show queens. Consequently, this is a truck you’ll want to drive, if for no other reason than to hear the sweet symphony of noises coming from the big block motor.

Also, don’t you just love those curves?
