Feeling Lucky? Fully-Built ’56 Ford F-100 Pro Street Rod Auction
Combing the fleets of 1950’s Ford F-100 pickups selling online seldom do you see one like this Mad Max-modified with cabin creature features for everyday comfort. What first caught my eye was F-100’s athletic stance and rad shade of red paint. Yet what kept me captivated was the rigid racecar reinforcements coupled with traffic-calming interior equipment. Racecar with comfort? Oh yes! Lucky Auctions in the Northwest is readying this week for their Spring event where you’ll have the chance to buy this big dog if you’re lucky. Let’s tour before you go full bore.
This 1956 Ford F-100 Pickup Truck Pro Street Rod chassis reinforcement is definitely the differentiation between other F-100’s online at this time. It looks like most F-100s for sale are updated with a big motor yet none of them have near the power planting stiffness added as this pickup truck build right here. At the heart of the structural enhancements is a 6-point roll-cage, fully-boxed rear and a set of twin fuel cells delivering more balance.
Matching the frame unity is updated road-holding componentry which makes driving sound like pleasure. Additions include a new 4-corner braking system, 4-wheel coilover suspension and Toyota power steering. Those updates are key to handling all the big power from the ultra-customized Chevy 350 V8 turning through an also modified Chevy 350 Hydramatic out to a narrowed Ford 9”rear to Strange axles to a set of beefy 12 x 14 inch aluminum rear wheels wrapped in radials. A 3,500 RPM stall converter and nitrous-boost is equipped so if you’re inexperienced go out and try and empty a bottle practicing your launch throttle control.
After you’ve examined the body, frame and updates then virtually climb inside. Fitted with power locks, windows, wipers, alarm system and custom stereo this Ford offers everyday comfort. The shallow bucket seats look inviting with comfy soft cloth. Head over to Lucky’s website now for more details.
