Description:

There are new trucks you can buy on the showroom floor that aren''t as nicely finished and comfortable as this 1956 Ford F-100. Packing V8 power, a high-visibility paint job, and all the creature comforts you''d expect, this beautiful pickup is one of those trucks that really can do it all. There''s no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups were some of the best-looking tools ever built. With that aggressive forward-canted attitude, the curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. This one is an early build that tastefully updates the 60-year-old shape by shaving a lot of the emblems and giving it a monochromatic red paint job that simply blazes off the sheetmetal. Fit and finish are good all around, and while it does show some signs of age, it''s exactly the kind of truck you can get in, turn the key, and drive cross-country, all the while collecting thumbs-up gestures along the way. Note how well the doors fit, how the big domed hood sits flush with the fenders, and the beautifully finished bed whose subtle reddish stain works quite well with the vivid red paint. The chrome grille still sparkles, and simple chrome bumpers fore and aft reinforce the fact that there''s just no way to make these trucks look bad. There''s also a custom-fitted red tonneau cover for the bed, which also makes this truck practical for long-distance hauls. The interior is a mix of technology and old-fashioned hot-rodding ingenuity. There was obviously a lot of money spent here to get it into its current impressive condition, and while the build is perhaps 20 years old, it looks a fraction of that age. The gray cloth on the custom bench seat and door panels looks upscale and wears like iron, and with red accents throughout, it ties together quite nicely with the extroverted bodywork. All the modern conveniences are included such as A/C, power windows, and a tilt column. The original instrument panel has a cool ''50s shape, but is now filled with digital instruments that light up when you turn the key, a very neat effect. There''s also a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system with eight speakers, which will leave you wondering where they hid them all. Lokar supplied an old-style shifter handle to reinforce the old-school vibe, but the bottom line is that this truck is as comfortable and as familiar as your modern F150. Power in the form of a 350 cubic inch Chevy small block means that this truck moves with genuine authority. The big engine bay handles the fresh engine without restricting service access, and it looks right tucked back under the cowl. A few chrome dress-up parts add some flash and the red theme continues with matching details. Underneath, the Ford''s original frame was also painted red and fitted with a modern front clip with independent suspension, power steering, and coil-over shocks. There''s a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt rear end hanging on ladder bars and more coil-overs, and performance fans will be pleased to see a disc brake at each corner. Shiny KMC wheels fit the truck well and carry 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall radials. Classic trucks never go out of style, and this one has all the right ingredients to make it as wonderful today as it was when it was first built. That also means all the bugs have been worked out and it''s ready to enjoy. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
