When it comes to classic trucks my top 3 in no particular order are the 1950’s Chevrolet Apache Step side, the highly popular Chevy C10 and last but certainly not least the classic Ford F-100 Series.
I snapped a few shots of this vintage iron at a local truck show in Texas and as I was recently going through some pics, I said that I must share this one with our fans on Car Guy Speed Shop.
Unfortunately, I did not have an opportunity to speak with the owner and therefore I do not know a whole lot about this ride but I do have two eyes and I know cool when I see it.
I like vintage cars and trucks that are not overdone and this is one fits that bill. It does have a few subtle body and interior modifications that really enhances the vehicle while not taking away from it.
Once designated primarily as a farm truck for agricultural use, the 1956 F-100 is now considered a highly sought after classic muscle truck by collectors and enthusiast.
According to Blue Oval Trucks, “In an effort to match the redesigned Chevrolet trucks that had appeared for 1955, Ford attempted to modernize its F-Series trucks by giving them wraparound windshields and restyled dashboards. Ford’s 1956 truck grilles got the customary annual update, and now boasted a “Back to the Future” look very similar to that of the 1953 Ford truck models.”
This 1956 Ford F-100 is done the right way; it features a redesigned custom interior, power brakes, power steering and power windows.
All finished in an excellent bright baby blue paint scheme and accented with eye-catching chrome all around.
I do not have a pic of the bed but if memory serves me correctly it did have a gorgeous oak bed that just completed the whole truck.
When it’s done right, I think the 1956 Ford F-100 Step side short bed just might be our top pick for classic trucks. Just saying 🙂
