New in our showroom!
This original 1956 Stepside F100 truck in amazing all restored condition. This rare beauty is in amazing and super solid condition and was painted back to its factory correct Sky view blue & white two-tone paint scheme which looks great!
The complete drive line, transmission, all brakes, wiring, dash, steering system, suspension and truck bed, chassis were correctly restored back to his factory original condition. Its also a rare original V8 truck (most were 6 cilinders) And we believe the factory original engine and trans are still in the car today. The car is equipped with the factory optional 3 speed Overdrive gear transmission which makes it even more rare. The transmission is in fact a 6 speed! Because in every gear it will overdrive automatically in a low and high gear. Its a great feature that can also be switched on and of by a special switch.
In an effort to match the sales of the new Chevy Task Force Pickups that had debuted last year, Ford's F-Series trucks were revamped for the 1956 model year. Along with a new grille, the most noticeable change was the "Full Wrap" windshield, which extended over to the door posts, increasing the field of vision.By increasing bore to 3.62" and stroke to 3.30", the Y-Block now displaced 272ci. Three versions of the enlarged V-8 were offered: a light-duty with a 2-barrel carb, a heavy-duty with a 2-barrel carb, and a heavy-duty with a 4-barrel producing 167-horsepower.
Vacuum-style windshield wipers were discontinued in favor of the more reliable electric-motor wipers. Another improvement for 1956 Ford trucks was an upgrade from 6 to 12 volt electrical systems.For 1956, the 223ci six-cylinder became the standard engine. Inside, a restyled dashboard improved driver's visibility. Also new was Ford's "Lifeguard Steering Wheel", whose deep-dish design put a greater distance between the center hub and driver's chest. Other safety items included new door latches and optional seat belts.
All in all the 1956 Ford F100 is one of the most wanted classic trucks around because of there great looks with there step side bed and the beefy front and rear fenders and as far as the V8 version are concerned the V8 ornament on the front grill that reallu made clear to all other trucks that the should not mess around with this one.
The F100 we present to you here is of that most wanted 56'year and its just a gorgeous truck with its two tone bleu and white paint job and its short step side bed. Its a super nice truck and was restored with respect for its originality. The cost to restore these trucks is always way higher that there value and in this case that not different.
