Classic Car Overview

In the collector car hobby, it seems like half the fun of owning a classic is telling the story that is associated with it. The majority of every vehicle we sell has a back story, but we can assure you, none of which have a history like this amazing 1955 Ford F100 restomod. To simply look at it today, youll see an amazing truck that hasnt been chopped or cut up, but has seen a first-class restoration and sits today with a Heidts front and rear suspension, professionally built LQ9 engine, Tremec 6-speed and a killer look. All of that is great, but one of the most interesting things about this truck is its story. When the owner set out to find a truck for his build, little did he know he was going to stumble on a real 2-owner 1955 Ford F100. In June of 2012, his goal was to find a solid truck that would be a good candidate for a custom build. Through friends and family he happened upon a farmer that had a solid old farm truck stored in a barn. After inspecting it in person, he decided to buy the truck. Weve included the photos from the day when the farmer had to fire up his old tractor and pull it out of the barn. But look closely at the photos; you can see how unmolested and solid this truck was at the very beginning. The second owner had purchased the truck from his good friend in 1957 when he couldnt afford the monthly payments anymore The title from the second owner(which a copy is included in the sale) was dated 1958! Thats right this is a documented 3-owner Ford pickup! Despite its humble beginnings, a full 2-year complete professional restoration brought this truck to a level that many just dream about. It started with the truck being completely disassembled and then the frame was sandblasted and boxed. From there, a Heidts superride II front end and a Heidts rear 4-bar suspension was added to bring the handling to todays standards. Then Wilwood 12 rear brakes were added at all four corners and adjustable coilover shocks were placed to achieve that perfect height. The body was taken down to the bare metal, gas tank was replaced and relocated to under the rear of the frame, and then a new custom bed was added. The truck was going to be enjoyed and driven by the current owner, who was an avid mountain biker. So, he installed a removable bike front wheel chock to tie his bikes down to and then a custom lockable hidden lift up bed storage. The body was then professionally shot in a gorgeous late model Chevrolet color of Dark Blue that almost looks like black in the right light. The paint is stunning and has already started to turn heads in our showroom Flip up the hood with its custom hood release and youll find a fully detailed engine bay with an incredibly built LQ4 iron-block. The 403ci V8 received L92 heads, GMPP dual plane carb intake that allowed the engine builder to place a Holley Street Avenger 770 carb atop the engine. The engine was bored 4.005 and Stroked 4.000 and contains Mahle pistons and rings, Molnar rods and crank, Morel lifters, GM factory 1.7 rockers, and a metcalf custom ground cam. Custom headers, aluminum radiator and an electric fan completes the look in the engine bay. Power is sent from the engine to a Tremec T56 6-speed manual that contains a 2.66 low gear perfect for cruising the highway. From there the high-dollar transmission transfers the power to a Strange Engineering S60 rear end with 35 spline axles and a 4.10 rear gear. Youll find Billet Specialties 18 and 20 mag G series chrome wheels at the corners that have been wrapped in 275/40s in the front and an incredibly 315/35s in the back! Can you believe after all this detail, we havent even touched on the custom interior yet! Pop open the door and youll see a custom professionally done interior by Sam Singleton that features a custom console with a Lokar shifter and knob. The clutch and brake pedals have been mounted to the firewall and a Ididit tilt column has a grant steering wheel placed atop. Power leather bucket seats are an incredible place to log miles from behind and the interior features everything that you would expect it to Ice cold, Vintage A/C, power steering, great sounding radio, Dakota digital analog gauges, electric parking brake and new glass and weatherstripping throughout. Ultimately, a ton of money has been put into this incredible build. Unfortunately, health reasons have forced the current owner to sell it and is being offered for way less than what it would take to build it today So if you are looking for an incredible truck that carries with it a even better story, dont miss your chance to own this one of a kind truck!
