Supercharged 1956 Ford F-100 is a Delicious Red Jawbreaker

Sorry if this post is a little late. Just spent the past two hours mopping up drool.

That tends to happen when you come across a restored 1956 Ford F-100 as gorgeous as this one that’s currently listed on RK Motors in Charlotte. Seriously, I want to lick it.

The Ford Toreador Red Metallic pickup is the result of a massively extensive full tear-down rebuild by Hot Rod Fabrication in Auburn, Wash. With more than $267,000 invested in the classic, it’s rightfully been featured in magazines and has won car show awards across the country, and its asking price is only for $87,000.

Outside of the air conditioning, not much of this cherry’s inner-workings are original. Under the hood is a small block Chevy engine (GASP!) that’s been bored out to 411 cubic inches. It has a Holley carb, Edelbrock pump, Edelbrock heads, and a B&M 144 supercharger. That’s linked to a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Underneath is quite an interesting setup. It’s a Lincoln Versailles axle, a Ford back half, and a Camaro front half. That includes Eibach springs, Fat Man control arms, and Southwest leaf springs. And then there’s the bed. Rejuvenated oak with “Vermont Maple” stain and multiple coats of resin.

The list goes on and on, but needless to say, this is one seriously impressive piece of work.
