A heavily-modified 1956 Ford F-150 will likely be auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson at the Scottsdale event of the company later this month.
The F-100’s builder looked to make a pickup with a Huge quantity of power and was able to supply the screaming 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 of a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 that is good for 526 hp and 429 lb-ft (581Nm) of torque. Mated for this engine, which sports a crank, is the six-speed manual box from a GT350.
Of course, dropping in a GT350’s motor Would be a recipe for disaster so this features a custom boxed chassis that has been designed to deal with of that modern-day power. The truck also offers a custom Kooks exhaust system and has been adorned with a set of new pieces that are external. There are fresh boards front and rear fenders, shaved turn signals, LED head- and taillights, and a matte paint finish.
Modifying a pickup truck such as an early F-100 Could be hit and miss, but it appears like this builder did an excellent job with the car. There are the work which has gone on beneath the skin as well as a number of very nice interior trimmings, as an example, that match the exterior modifications.
No quote has been granted for its pickup, but we guess When it hits the auction block, It is going to attract quite a great deal of attention.
