Eye Popping 1956 Ford Trucks

What is so great about the year 1956, you ask? Well, 1956 Ford Trucks, of course! I mean, really, is there any year of Ford trucks that was really bad? That is not to say that I have not seen my share of flopped and botched restoration efforts, but, when these trucks were new and just rolling off the Ford assembly lines, they were the cream of the crop of work trucks. Nowadays, these trucks are very rarely used for actual work. Most of them are show trucks and collector’s items of the wealthy. That does not mean you absolutely have to be filthy stinkin’ rich to own one, though.

Okay, I’ll admit, for this first truck you will need either a pretty big budget or an affinity for women who look like post-operation…well, you get the picture. As far as this truck goes, there has been a great deal of money put into making it turn heads.

I think you would be hard pressed to find an original part on this truck other than the body itself. This Hotrod was built by a garage in Pheonix, Arizona and is well worth the over $10,000 of the current bid on eBay.

This 1956 Ford truck for sale is, however, not worth the over seven thousand dollar bid currently in place for it. I will personally never understand the allure of the flat black paint jobs that look like someone bought a few cans of Krylon at their local Wal*Mart and let their five year old have at it. I think people could use a little bit more creativity. That’s just me, though, and maybe the flat black look is your thing. If it is, by all means, head on over to eBay and place your bids. The engine is a newly rebuilt 327 cubic inch with only two hundred miles on it. I suppose that could be it’s best selling point.

This last 1956 Ford F100 is a much better exhibition of the skills of a talented restoration team. Seriously, someone in Morton, Illinois really knows what they are doing. The truck’s frame off restoration is newly completed this year, and the same can be said for the engine rebuild. It is powered by a six cylinder motor coupled to the original manual transmission. The rims, tires, and chrome all all new, and so is the interior and bed. The current bid on eBay for this truck is $8,000, or you can buy it outright for $26,000.
