4610 Pet Lane
The 1956 Ford F-100 is one of the best trucks around to turn into a hot rod. And as you take a closer look at this big block V8 custom, you'll realize it's the cream of the crop.
There's no denying that the mid-50s Ford pickups had some serious style to go with its workman attitude. The curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time. For example, 1956 was the debut for the wraparound windshield. It gave the cab a hint of aggressive forward-leaning stance, and that's enhanced on this one with flashy Boyds alloys that are larger in the rear. This one had a serious investment from top to bottom that resulted in a near laser-straight truck. It was then dipped in a red so tasty that you'll swear it was candy. In fact, the paint has so much radiance that they were able to eliminate some of the traditional brightwork (like the bumpers and some trim) to give this a clean and distinct look. But this one never loses its best vintage features. Everything from the Ford badge up front, to the step plates in the running boards, to the glossy real wood in the truck bed reminds you that the best customs still embrace their classic attitude.
The custom investments continues inside. The dash and door tops have the same slick exterior red for a great uniform presentation inside and out. It's now joined by a tasteful tan on the door inserts, carpeting, and headliner. And the best place you'll love this tan is on the seats. Gone is the '50s-style flat bench and it's replaced with a comfy unit with individual bolstering and comfy cloth inserts for where you sit. There's even a fold-down armrest for a true individual experience. You'll love slipping behind the artful wood and chrome steering wheel mounted on a color-matched tilt column. The Lokar shifter is a great place to rest you hand, and the Dolphin gauges have a classic look while offering all the right info. This is a very thoughtful build.
The hood tilts forward for everyone to get a good view at the motor, and so they made sure it was dressed to impress. Ford's 429 cubic-inch V8 looks great sitting in the smooth red walls. And the etched air topper and Ford Racing valve covers add both intimidation and flair. This big block is already known to be a terrific powerhouse, and that's before you know about features like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand Stealth intake, and Champion aluminum radiator. The V8 roars to life as it sings a performance tune from the dual side exhaust tips. But more than just powerful, this one delivers an all-around enjoyable driving experience thanks to the upgraded independent front suspension, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires.
This is the beautifully-built, high-power custom truck you've been waiting for. Don't let it slip away, call today!
