..........56 Ford F-100, Arguably the best looking pickup truck ever built, This is a mostly original, rust free California truck with 83K miles. It had the original 272 V-8 and a 3 speed Overdrive Transmission. It was completly redone about ten years ago and never driven. I flew to San Luis Obispo California on July 5th and drove this truck back to Austin taking Route 66 most of the way. It was a beautiful 1596 mile trip, the truck never missed a lick, even through 115 degree heat in Death Valley driving 75-80mph all the way. After getting it home, I promptly installed all new a/c, new Power Steering, and new Power Disk Brakes, a new set of wheels and tires, new chrome bumpers and grill, new hood emblems, new rams horn maniflods and new dual exhaust, new rear brakes and wheel bearings, and the best part, a fresh Thunderbird 312, bored, balanced, Isky Cam, and a fresh Saginaw 4 Speed with Overdrive. This is a very nice 56 F-100 that was a nice driving truck before, but is a real joy to drive now. I have made a few tasteful modifications, while keeping it pretty much original, and making it beautiful and fun to drive without butchering it up like so many of these 56's have been. Well, I have been driving this truck daily for a while now and it now has 89K miles, and I think my ex wife might have been right, I shouldn't sell this one........but then what do ex wives know......... Update; And it now has a fresh warmed up 57 Thunderbird 312 under the reverse flip hood, and a rebuilt Saginaw 4 speed with Overdrive, new Hurst shifter, new desert cooler 4 row radiator, and a fresh 3:70 rearend. This is really a nice driver now and the price has gone up again.
