The 1956 Ford F-100 Show truck described herein represented an excellent
example of a modern Show Truck conversion. While retaining the basic

and creature comforts that you might find in a modern high performance
sport pick-up truck. Features such as high performance "Vaughn Gitten Jr.
5.0" motor, 6 speed manual transmission, power front and rear disc brakes,
power rack and pinion steering, air ride suspension system, a luxury red
leather upholstered interior, power windows, solenoid operated doors as
well as a sophisticated state of the art keyless entry system. This unique

and his team at RMD Group.

the results speak from themselves.

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
information on this truly remarkable machine.

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

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.
