1956 Ford F-100 Restomod Description:

Every angle of this 1956 Ford F-100 Restomod is a dead giveaway that this is a full custom machine - especially when you look underneath because this classic Ford pickup is running on a full C5 Corvette frame! That means an all-independent suspension, fuel-injected V8 power, overdrive transmission, and the pride of know this is a complete and awesomely unique build.
This truck likes to show off plenty of street machine attitude in special ways. It starts with the paint. Primer gray is right for a workman truck, but the glossy clearcoat on top adds a modern look. Plus, as you get up close, you can still see it retain a hot rod kind of spirit. Black is added in all the right places to draw attention to classic elements like the grille and rounded cab. At the same time, it also draws your focus to cool custom elements, like the custom tapered running boards and the wheels that are done by the masters at Detroit Steel Wheel Co. There are nicely integrated modern touches throughout, including the HID headlights, LED light bar up front, and gas cap integrated into the custom rear fender. In fact, the whole truck is now a unibody setup. The truck bed has an awesome look thanks to reclaimed barn wood. And what you'll really love about this is that when you park at the car shows, the bed floor electronically lifts up to reveal a custom trunk and let's everyone see the special Corvette transaxle. Speaking of parking, this one has an adjustable air ride suspension, so you can watch jaws drop to the ground as lower the truck all the way to the ground.

All the black accents of the outside get you ready for the full black interior. There are provisions for comfortable features like air conditioning, power windows, and an iPod compatible audio system with subwoofer. And there's an AccuAir e-Level air management system to dial in your suspension height. The bench seat has been done with comfortable contouring, and the stitching is meant to look like a classic sports car. That performance feeling continues on the wood-rimmed steering wheel, Flaming River tilt column, Lokar shifter, and upgraded Dakota Digital gauge cluster.

The hood tilts forward so everyone can get a clear view at the seriously cool upgrade within. The LS1 V8 is a true modern legend. This fuel-injected 5.7-liter may have returned Chevys to power supremacy, but you'll proudly show it off in this Ford. It fires up with the confidence of a modern fuel-injected powerhouse, and this feeds Kooks headers on their way to the dual exhaust (Kooks over the axle-pipe and Magnaflow mufflers also come with the sale.) You'll want to keep the undercarriage photos for your records, because everyone's going to want to know more the moment you tell them that the suspension is also pure C5 Corvette. And of course, a fuel-injected V8 and fully independent suspension are also exactly what make for a terrific driving restomod. Plus, with power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the Corvette's four-speed transmission w/overdrive, you can comfortably show off this full custom build near or far.

It's hard not to get excited about a fully-done restomod like this. But if you stay on the sidelines and admire too long, it may go into some else's garage. Call now!
