1956 Ford F-100 Packs A Shelby Voodoo V8 Under The Hood

We have a soft spot for the Ford F-100 series of pickups of all years around here. We particularly like the early versions like this 1956 Ford F-100 pickup. One glance at this satin black and lowered beauty, and you know that the truck is far from stock. This beast has a custom boxed chassis to handle the power from a Ford Racing 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 used in the Shelby GT350.

The 1956 Ford F-100 rolls on Cobra independent front and rear suspension and is fitted with custom wheels and tires. The interior is clean and has little bling, with a bit of chrome to set off all the black Sticking up between the seats is the shifter for the 6-speed manual transmission that is from the GT350.

The truck is packed with custom features with shaved turn signals under the bed of the truck, roll pans front and rear, and the rear fenders have been widened by 3-inches. The tailgate is smoothed, and the truck has LED headlights and taillights. The front radiator to keep the Voodoo V8 cool is a Mishimoto polished unit.

The builders also fitted the truck with a Vintage Air system to keep the truck cool when cruising on hot days. The interior does have a custom console and a custom audio system. A backup camera is integrated, and all the gauges have been replaced with Dakota Digital units. The headliner is made in custom suede, and the truck has a new carpet and Dynamat for sound dampening. The truck is rolling across the auction block with Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale in January with no reserve. There is no indication of what the truck might bring. Check out this 1975 Ford F-100 to see another cool truck.
