1957 F-100

For all the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s Ford trucks we see all over the place, some model years just aren’t prevalent like others. One of which is the 1957. Fans rarely see them in any form; stock or modified. Enthusiasts seem to stop with the 1956 model, with ’60s examples enjoying a surging popularity as well.

It’s safe to say that we should pay more attention to the late ’50s Fords that paved the way for those beloved ’60s models. Also, the third-generation F-Series was significant because it paved the way for modern design, including some elements that still exist today. We’ll start with this 1957 F-100, a truck that is vastly underappreciated as a one-year-only body style.

The current owner tastefully customized this ’57, sending you back to the old days of the hot rod era. This truck features gold paint, Torq Thrust wheels, and a 500 cubic inch Cadillac big block. As a result, it might anger Ford purists! Although such setup was a common sight in ’50s hot rods.

Regardless of whether you love or hate the look (or the engine choice), it’s still nice to see a ’57 receiving some attention. There just aren’t enough of them in the sea of old Fords that are enjoying a surge in popularity.
