We’re fans of the ’50s Ford F-100 pickups around these parts. Some of the ones we see are completely perfect with flawless paint and modern power under the hood, like that flat black version we saw with the Shelby Voodoo V8 not long ago. This orange 1956 Ford F-100 isn’t as clean is that black pickup. It looks pretty cool for folks who appreciate the patina look and it’s for sale on eBay.
Will admit to not being sure if this is a patina paint job purposely made the look old, or if this is how the truck looks after baking in the sun since 1956. Either way, it appears to be a solid and clean truck. Under the hood is a later model 5.0-liter V8 engine. It also has disc brakes and modern suspension. Rather than using an aftermarket chassis and suspension, the builder of this truck took the body from the F-100 and set it on a 1999 Ford Explorer frame and drivetrain that had 50,000 miles on the clock.
Since the truck has been built, it has only been driven 189 miles. While the exterior has a patina look, the interior is clean and looks brand-new. The interior has bright red paint along with the gray vinyl bench seat. The steering wheel and column appear to be straight out of the Explorer.
The eBay seller says that the car has been stored in a garage and runs without issue. It has a clean Texas title and is looking for a new home. The 1956 Ford F-100 isn’t an auction; it’s a buy it now with the asking price of $19,500. The seller appears willing to negotiate as there is a best offer button.
