Ford Truck History -- rise of the F-150
Truck sales and SUV sales have collapsed but the All-American pick up truck
still commands a loyal following. And truck buyers are the most brand
loyal consumers who swear their Ford, Chevy or Dodge is better than the
competition. This was one market foreign competitors haven't been able to
conquer. This short video takes a look at the rise of the Ford F-150, the
best selling truck in America.
1966 Ford F100 Pickup 352 V8
I thought you'd like a look at this beautiful 1966 Ford F100 Custom Cab
Pickup. 1966 was a great year for Ford trucks. It was the second year of
the "Twin I-Beam" front suspension system where the two front axles work
independently to absorb road shocks. It also holds wheel alignment which
reduces tire wear. In combination with the new Flex-O-Matic rear suspension
which adjusts spring stiffness, you are guaranteed a smooth ride. This
truck underwent a frame off restoration just 27,000 miles ago. Options
include: A/C, AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat
Belts, Vinyl Interior, Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. Under the
hood you will notice a 352 CID V8 engine and a C6 automatic transmission.
The C6 has a shift kit added for faster and firmer shifting. I hope you found
it interesting...thanks for watching!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

For every hot rod, there is a trend. For every trend, admirers have an
image of "what's hot" burned into their minds. This custom 1956 Ford F-100
is "what's hot"! A classic Ford truck with a 351 Cleveland, custom interior
and an undercarriage that is an engineers dream, what more could you ask
Tilt forward that big yellow hood and get personal with that engine. It's a
351 Windsor SVO block out of the Motorsports catalog. The rotating assembly
is a Scat crank, which was stroked and bored to 406ci. This is one super
high powered motor! Under that gorgeous air cleaner is a Demon 950 carb
with electric choke and vacuum secondaries, and a powder coated Victor Jr.
intake. AFR heads and jet coated headers sit below the polished aluminum
"Outlaw" valve covers. There is a whole MSD setup including a 6A box,
blaster coil and billet distributor. You will also find a new style power
steering pump and alternator. No expense was spared on the build of this
truck. Roush even installed the billet specialties pump and pulley setup on
the front of the motor. There is also a billet timing chain cover and SFI
harmonic balancer up there. To top it off, the firewall is polished
stainless, which acts like a mirror to show off this motor at the car show.
It's just amazing!
Hop inside and check out the velour and leather work. It's impressive! The
gray bench seat is inlayed with a purple velour flame. The same flame
pattern is displayed in the molded door panels. The dash is fitted with
Dolphin gauges and the AM/FM radio. A beautiful Budnik wheel tops the
Ididit column and a Lokar shifter is at your right leg. The windshield and
weather stripping was replaced in 2006.
Drop underneath and check out the well constructed chassis. Out back you
will find brand new aluminized Flowmaster pipes and mufflers, which we just
rebuilt. Instead of the chrome Exhaust
tips coming out in front of the rear tires, it is now out back. The Ford 9"
rear end and nodular center section is being held up by Total Cost
Involved's 4-bar system and coil over shocks, and is putting some serious
power to the ground. The super solid, rust free, frame has an eye-catching
coat of purple paint. There is a new 3" driveshaft with new u-joints
running down the center. The floorboards are in awesome shape, and the
steel running boards have a nice paint job as well. The rockers, body
mounts and frame ties are all in awesome shape. The Dominator C6
transmission has a nice TCI pan and the paint job on the motor and oil pan
is sweet. The Fatman front suspension is based on the Mustang 2, and the boxed frame really
holds down the power. Power rack and pinion steering and SSBC disc brakes
make this truck super fun to drive. Sitting at all four corners are
polished aluminum 5 spoke wheels and BF Goodrich G Force T/A's (2-25-70-15
front, 2-75-60-15 rear). One of my favorite features on this truck is the
battery shut-off switch, which is hidden inside the passenger side fender.
Outside, screaming yellow paint will stun your retinas, and you're going to
love every minute of it. Start up front. The highlight of the truck is
undeniably the hood -- it's a tilt forward, one piece unit, and it's cool.
It makes service a snap and it'll impress the heck out of car show
attendees! Both front and rear bumpers are highly polished stainless steel,
so you never have to worry about them again. The chrome grille is in
excellent shape. Check out that bed, too: the wood is beautifully stained
and maintained, and the chrome inlay shines. There's a lot going on here!
What we have is a cool truck with ample power, a fully finished chassis, a
comfortable interior and a unique look. You gotta like that! Call today! 7
