It also packs some GM power under the hood.

Old pickup trucks are like the salt of the earth. They’re not pretentious, they can get the job done, and they’re battle-hardened. This custom 1955 Ford F-100 certainly fits the bill, plus some nice custom work has smoothed out its wrinkles to make for a nice cruiser you can depend on.

Immediately, you can tell this F-100 has been lowered, making it appear sportier. Centerline wheels are tucked under the wheel arches for a well-composed appearance. A creamy white paint job has been shined to gleaming perfection. Funny enough, instead of being painted a bold color like red or yellow, this F-100 actually will stand out from the crowd and get your noticed for being different. The wood slats in the bed are in excellent condition. A trailer hitch is tucked behind the license plate, keeping the exterior looking smooth and clean.

The interior is also smooth and highly presentable. The same white paint graces the original dash. White-faced gauges add to the customized appearance, plus there’s a large tachometer mounted below the dash by the steering column. A modern Pioneer sound system, plus grey cloth upholstery, door panel inserts, and carpeting make for a comfortable cab.

This Ford runs using a Chevrolet 350ci V8, a practice which is more common than some might expect. It packs a punch thanks in part to a few upgrades like exhaust headers, while a high-capacity aluminum radiator means you can drive in the heat and heavy traffic without problems. A floor-mounted B&M shifter adds to the fun. Power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and an independent front suspension makes this truck more approachable than many other classic pickups.

Ford launched the F-100 back in 1954 and enjoyed a successful run all the way until 1983 when production ceased. Many working-class citizens and businesses learned to depend on the truck, making it a symbol of America’s grit and determination. A clean, customized version like this 1955 Ford F-100 is difficult to find. Laguna Classic Cars & Automotive Art is the seller for this fine machine.
