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 electric blue paint and a strong-running 351ci V8. And when you can pick it all up for such an affordable price, well then, the whole package is irresistible.Custom classic pickups are a staple of Americana as much as gas pumps, corn fields, and baseball caps, and the mid-50s Fords are among the most attractive working machines of the period. This one's days of punching the time clock are well behind it, although these have been built so tough that a Home Depot run is never out of the question (there's even tough diamond plating over the original wood bed for added flash and strength.) There's good workmanship here, with straight panels, good alignment, and cobalt blue paint that's glossy without trying to be too flashy. The same humble-but-cool feeling comes from the factory grill and all that authentic badging. But there are also some great pieces to let the world know this is a true custom like the slats in the tailgate and the Eagle Alloy five-lug wheels.The black trim on the bumpers sets up a great coordinating feature for when you open the door. The black vinyl bench seat is a nice update from the '50s to give you added comfort. It matches with the door panels, carpeting, and steering wheel/tilt column, and the exterior blue return as an accent color on the dash and doors for a true uniform appearance. Your seating position is commanding, and everything from the tall gearshift to the AM/FM/CD stereo is within easy reach. But your favorite feature will be the rumble when you turn the key.You know from the moment this V8 fires up that it's something special. It inhales deeply through a Quick Fuel Slayer four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And it exhales with thunderous authority through the glasspack dual exhaust that all joins to exit right behind the driver's door (that way you get to enjoy all of it.) Beyond just sounding great, it has an attractive presentation with Ford Racing valve covers and newer belts and hoses. And for those who need a reliable pickup, you'll love to know there are dependable components such as the MSD Blaster 2 ignition and dual electric fans. Getting power to the road is easy with a stout C4 three-speed automatic transmission feeding a Ford 9-inch rear end. More than just a power package, this Ford feels nice on the road thanks to the upgrades like independent front suspension w/sway bar, front disc brakes, and a coilover rear w/traction bars.An affordable vintage pickup with the right look and the upgrades you want. There's only one of these up for grabs, so hurry up and call today!!!
