Classic Car Overview
1956 Ford F-100 owned since 1975 as a project taken over from the previous owner. I got it on the road in 1976 and cruised it locally until 1978 when it was returned to my garage for future restoration. A restoration was begun in 2008 and never finished. Truck comes with a Ford 400-M engine and C-6 automatic transmission salvaged from a 1972 Ford LTD in 1975. Engine had 23,000 original miles when purchased and now has about 29,000 miles. Rear end differential is a 1956 Olds and I had it chromed. Cab is very solid with the exception of needing attention to the front cab corners (shown in a picture). The doors are in excellent condition. Front fenders are excellent, while the rear fenders are just as nice (metal fabrication was nicely done to where they bolt to the running boards). Grille is beautifully chromed and has no dents. Lower front valance is new old stock (purchased in 1975) and is solid. I meticulously hand-sanded the chassis frame where accessible and wire brushed the hard-to-get-at places. I used Eastwood Rust Encapsulate in those hard places and applied etching to bare spots on the frame. Then I applied two light coats of primer, two light coats of Eastwood Chassis Black and then a final heavier coat of the same. I did a better job than a sandblasting company did for me on a previous chassis.. I did not like their epoxy finish as it was dull and peeling later. This chassis has a much better show quality finish and still looks great! The wheels are E/T Slotted Aluminum Mags from 1975. The BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires are from 1972 and are only "rollers" and are not safe for the road. Some additional new old stock and after market parts are as follows: Front Turn Signal assemblies, Running Boards (needing a chrome removal bath and re-coating after years of laying around getting rusty), Emblems/Badges ("Custom Cab" for the doors, "F-100" on each side of hood, Ford shield crest for front center of hood, and "V8" for the grille), Taillight assemblies, New tinted windshield and rear window, black new old stock rear bumper,New complete motor & transmission mount assembly for 351 Cleveland and 400-M Ford engines, new performance mufflers and Y-pipe from Summit Racing. Some older parts include two stock steering columns, an extra radiator, an extra rear bumper (diamond plate). There are many more parts that I must get down from the attic that will be mentioned in my updated ad later. Modifications include a "frenched" antennae insert on right side of cab for a hydraulic power antennae (included), a 1952 GMC instrument panel frame which was fashioned to the dashboard (it has eight Stewart Warner gages) and it turned out nice (previous owner did it), and the air vent in the cowling was eliminated. I replaced the stock steering column and steering wheel with a 1972 Ford Elite tilt steering column assembly. I still have the stock steering assembly. I am also including a dolly that supports the whole truck. If interested, please call Duane on cell (636) 248-1519. My home phone is (636) 447-0881. If you call that one, we won't pick up until you say your are calling about the truck. Thanks a lot!
