This 1955 Ford F-100 half-ton pickup received a complete body-off restoration in 2006. Power comes from a rebuilt 239ci V8 engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission with shifter on the steering column. This Ford is equipped with a new Howell fuel injection system, 12-volt electrical system, and custom interior. The frame was stripped and powder-coated and the brakes, suspension, fuel tank, wiring, and every nut and bolt were replaced. The body was in good condition except for a crumpled front fender which was replaced with a new one. This Ford was repainted in the original Snowshoe White over Aquatone Blue colors and has an added clear coat. When restoring the truck to stock condition, a new, original interior was ordered but it was just too plain for such a beautiful truck. A custom interior was created that incorporates the 'V' from the grille into the bench seat with exterior matching materials. This pickup is upgraded with wide whitewall tires, beauty rings, stainless steel bumpers, turn signals, and a stereo. The original 239ci V8 engine, 3-speed manual transmission and 3.92 ratio rear axle were all rebuilt. Toward the end of the restoration process, in the summer of 2006, and Early Ford V8 Club of America show was announced where this truck took 2nd place in the Truck Division and People's Choice Award. This Ford has been a one-family owned vehicle since new! Included in teh sale is the original carburetor, repair manuals, a car cover, and the People's Choice Award.
