Description for Ford F-100 1956

A strong running, rock-solid drivetrain teams with outstanding curb appeal and a nicely appointed interior to make this 1956 Ford F-100 a truly rare find. It wears an ultra-sharp exterior color to inject just the right amount of vitality into its old school sensibility and offers a very comfortable driving environment that's pretty hard to come by in this niche. A thorough restoration has equipped this classic Ford with a vibrant yet tasteful appearance that's sure... to bring a smile to onlookers as it cruises down the boulevard. Its mint green shade is an absolute winner - just a quick glance at it will elevate your mood. The assembly of chrome it wears - including an unusually clean front grille, the bumpers both fore and aft and the side mirrors and door hardware - is in top notch condition and really stands out against such a singular backdrop. Just the right amount of lowering has resulted in a stance that shows off this venerable pickup's form to perfection - it's got a slight incline and the vintage-look wheels are nicely showcased by their surrounding fenders. Take a glance from the side and you can see the pronounced curve at the corners of the wraparound windshield that was added the year this '56 debuted. Aftermarket fog lights perched just below the grille and razor-sharp lettering on the tailgate are among the stellar finishing touches on display here. There are a lot of nice details to admire inside these doors. This '56 sports a well-crafted interior, thoroughly revitalized yet still appropriately vintage in appearance, starting with a sharp two-tone bench seat flanked by matching door panels. The smooth steel surface of the dash area has been painted to match the exterior, there's an array of Stewart Warner gauges seamlessly fitted into the instrument panel and all the control knobs and switches are securely in place and very clean. The added Vintage Air climate control system is running in top form to cool the cabin with ease - even during the warmer weather that's upon us. In back, a well-fitted Craftech cover protects the bed area - it's equipped with struts to make lifting it a breeze and as you do so, you'll see a nicely prepped floor just underneath, with fresh wooden planks interspersed with stainless steel reinforcements. As you'd likely expect, given the attention to detail shown elsewhere on this truck, there's a well organized engine compartment waiting beneath the hood, featuring a 350 cubic inch V8 that's decked out with orange finned valve covers to match the block and the oversized air cleaner it wears on top. It's been armed with an Edelbrock 4 -barrel Performer carb and matching intake manifold for some added muscle, and a sizable aluminum radiator paired with an electric cooling fan is in place farther forward to keep operating temperatures under control during more demanding driving conditions. The engine fires right up and pulls with plenty of strength as it pairs with a 3-speed automatic transmission to make for a very road-ready drivetrain. Power steering equips this classic with an ease of navigation that's a rare commodity with trucks from this era, while power brakes that feature discs up front provide prompt stops. A set of 15" steel wheels painted to match the exterior, with chrome baby moon caps at their centers and outfitted with whitewall tires provides just the right finishing touch. This 1956 Ford F-100 has all those proverbial boxes checked to make it a first rate acquisition for the classic truck enthusiast looking not only for curb appeal, but a reassuringly solid driving experience as well.
