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
