complica com problemas no motor.

With an unlimited budget, amazing things are possible, and this astounding
1956 Ford F100 is the result of one man's vision, determination, and one
hell of a big check. And while it may look like a familiar pickup truck,
there isn't a single component anywhere on this truck that hasn't been
modified, smoothed, polished, or created from scratch, and today it is a
hand-made piece of rolling sculpture that merely looks like a '56 Ford. The
fenders have been smoothed, the hood and roof elaborately sectioned and
welded back together to create a flatter profile, and details like the
fender lips have been tweaked to make it unlike anything else you've ever
seen before. Other details include a custom made bed that's three inches
wider and three inches shorter than a stocker. Of course, fit and finish
are as perfect as such things can be, with thousands of hours tied up just
in getting the body to fit as precisely as possible.
Then there's the paint, which is a subtle two-tone green that will never go
out of fashion. In thirty years, this truck will still look as stunning as
it does today, which is a tribute to the builder's taste as much as his
skill. There are, of course, no ripples or signs of orange peel in the
paint, which has been massaged, polished, and buffed to a stunning shine
that is distortion-free no matter where you look, even in the door jambs
and under the hood. And while the bed is still wood like it was originally,
it is now made of exotic South African Lace wood stained a wonderful
mahogany color and detailed with stainless steel rub strips.
Power comes from a General Motors Performance Parts 454 cubic inch big
block V8, which cranks out a towering 425 horsepower. Thanks to a set
of custom-made valve covers featuring emblems inspired by the original Ford
pieces, and a trick intake shroud, it looks completely custom. All the
wiring and plumbing has been artfully hidden and tucked out of sight, and
even things like the welds on the radiator are precise enough to survive
close scrutiny. Plenty of engineering went into the build, so it runs and
drives as you would expect, with a ferocious wallop of torque and a
rumbling idle. If you just have to drive it, you certainly can and without
worries about its roadworthiness.
More hand-fabricated components live underneath, thanks to a Fatman
Fabrications frame with a Mustang II independent front
suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Out back, a traditional four-link
holds the Ford 9-inch rear off the ground, and the 3.70 gears inside give
it plenty of bit off the line without making cruising a chore. A built
700R4 4-speed automatic handles gear changes, and the overdrive allows it
to loaf along at highway speeds. Airbags at all four corners allow ride
height to be adjusted on the fly without affecting ride quality, and it
glides along the pavement like a hovercraft. Disc brakes with cross-drilled
rotors have been fitted at all four corners, and are visible through the
spokes of the custom-made 20-inch Budnik GTX wheels wearing low-profile
Climb inside and you'll easily forget that this was once a pickup truck, as
the custom made green leather interior wraps around you and your passenger.
There's not a single production part left inside, and even the 2006 Nissan
Altima gauges were custom modified just for this truck. Beautifully
stitched seats, door panels, and even floor mats create a unified theme,
and you'll note that the paint job details even wrap around the door frames
and continue inside the truck. A custom center console with a waterfall
effect between the seats was fabricated, and houses the shifter and
controls for the Vintage Air A/C system. I think you'll agree that calling
this art is not an exaggeration.
So is this 1956 Ford F100 art? Well, it's certainly more than just a truck.
It takes more than cubic dollars to build a vehicle of this caliber
(although that's definitely a primary ingredient), it also takes vision,
time, skill, talent, and dedicationPeople pay millions for art to hang on
their walls, surely this piece of art that stands in your garage is worth
it, too. Call, click, or visit http://www.RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more

The mid 50's did great things to truck design too..note the wrap around
windshield and the modern, YBlock V8. The paint and detailing on this
truck are outstanding! Notice the beautiful truck bed!

If you're a diehard Ford fan, an old school truck lover, or just a curious
buyer who's looking for something that's exceptionally well done, this
striking F100 is EXACTLY what you've been waiting for!
Since beginning its career as a show queen this squeaky clean Ford hasn't
really been driven on the road, so its custom Dupont basecoat/clearcoat
finish is virtually flawless. Its gold and silver graphics, which were
inspired by a vintage drop-top the owner remembered seeing as a kid, are
timeless and well-done. Of course, fit and panel alignment is as perfect as
such a thing can be. And no that isn't just the fender's bright red hue
reflecting in the door's jet black profile, the truck's paint actually does
have a very subtle red fleck. If you're looking for something to make the
judges weak in the knees at the next custom show, you've found your poison!
Unfold that smooth gliding Mid Fifty F-100 hood mechanism and you'll find a
32-valve dual overhead cam Lincoln InTech V8 which continues to be one of
the hottest and most versatile engines ever produced. And not only does
this modern gem crank out roughly 300 horsepower, it also features
a highly polished appearance that, when combined with the truck's bright
red engine bay, literally looks like a jewel in a box. At the top of the
mirrored engine a polished aluminum intake snorts oxygen through a custom
air tube and mixes it with a steady stream of dino blood that's pumped
through polished fuel lines via a factory electronic injection. At the
sides of that intake, polished aluminum cam covers prop Ford branded coil
covers next to polished breathers. Below those cam covers, ceramic coated
Ford Motorsport headers swirl spent gases into a fully polished, true dual
Exhaust system. In front of those
headers, polished pulleys and polished brackets spin a polished AC
compressor and a polished alternator in front of a polished timing cover.
And at the front of the engine bay, a polished Griffin radiator is
sandwiched between polished overflow tanks, stainless water tubes, a
polished cap and a chrome, large diameter puller fan.
Behind the high-revving cammer, a polished Ford electronic AOD 4-speed
spins a narrowed and chromed Ford nine inch rear end via tall 3.73 gears
and a polished aluminum driveshaft. Serious stops to counter the truck's
serious power are provided by a Wilwood four wheel disc brake system which
clamps polished calipers around 11.5 inch drilled and slotted rotors. That
first class drivetrain is held off the ground by a C-notched frame which,
along with the solid floors, has been bathed in the same glossy
basecoat/clearcoat finish as the truck's exterior panels. At the front of
that frame, a polished Heidt's Superide II independent suspension utilizes
polished Heidt's power rack and pinion steering and stainless coil over
shocks to provide a pleasant ride with a modern feel. At the back of that
frame, a stainless Heidt's four link suspension utilizes two more stainless
coilover shocks to provide drag strip worthy launches. And keeping all this
muscle rolling down the road is a slick set of Billet Specialties Vintec II
wheels which spin 245/40ZR18 front BF Goodrich G-Force radials in front of
275/35ZR20 rear BF Goodrich G-Force radials.
Inside this re-envisioned F-100 a tastefully customized interior combines
enough style for the most discerning judge with enough comfort for the
longest road trip. At the front of the truck a body-matched dash hangs
white-faced Auto Meter gauges behind a billet, Ford branded instrument
panel, a full array of polished aluminum trim and controls for a Vintage
Air climate system. At the center of the truck, a custom bench seat wears a
supple red Ultraleather cover that's trimmed in contrasting black piping.
At the bottom of the truck a color-keyed Ultraleather floor mat props an
MP3 compatible Kenwood sound system opposite simple chrome foot pedals. And
in front of the driver, a matching Billet Specialties Vintec steering wheel
spins a half-wrapped rim around a polished tilt column.

style! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today for more
