The great thing about a vintage truck is that it has all the right features for both flash and substance. This 1955 Ford F-100 is a great example with bright red paint, all the right custom details, upgraded suspension, and a strong-running 351ci V8. That makes it a turn-key package that's ready to turn heads with you as early as tomorrow.
The moment people catch sight of this one in the sunshine, they're going to know it's something special. Red doesn't get much bolder, and that's thanks to a modern professional application of a clearcoat paint. And this is already on top of one of the best vintage pickup designs around. That curvy bodywork has a classic old pickup look that also manages to be sporty at the same time thanks to the forward leaning stance, steel running boards, and rounded rear fenders. Brightwork is always a must on a '50s machine, and so you get great pieces like the mirror-like bumpers, intricate trim around the Custom Cab, and cool half-moon wheel covers. And this one has all the right details to impress, like the glossy lumber of the real wood truck bed and Ford emblem taillights.
The custom feeling continues the moment you open the door. The gray cloth and vinyl bench seat is vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1950s. It coordinates nicely with the matching side panels to create a uniform feeling. As you look across the dash, you see a nice mixture of old and new worlds. You have vintage style-gauges looking clean and clear, and the vintage heater is a great touch. Plus, you have nice upgrades like the Lokar shifter and AM/FM/CD stereo that's hidden in the glovebox. In fact, these two styles come together perfectly on the Lecarra steering wheel. After all, it has the intricate '50s style look, but it's grippy feeling gets you ready to enjoy the drive.
When you have an engine that looks this good, it's great to have a reverse-hinged hood so everyone can get a closer look. It's Ford's famous 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8, and it was rebuilt in 2014 for both beauty and performance. Shining elements like the air topper and aluminum radiator join the bold blue block and valve covers for an eye-catching presentation within the dark engine bay. Plus, the V8 has all the right performance upgrades, including an Edelbrock 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor, electric choke, Assault Racing Products dual plane aluminum intake, and Lunati Voodoo cam & lifters. And while it will be fun to sit idle and let people listen to the rumble of the dual exhaust, this F-100 was also built for driving. It has an upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension with tubular A-arms, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a beautifully built, well sorted pickup with a strong V8 heart. A total package like this won't stay available for long. Call today!!!
