While the Ford F-series truck started off life as a bare boned utilitarian vehicle, they now are popular collector pieces and hot property in the custom vehicle scene as well. With prices soaring a well sorted custom truck is the perfect way to mix up practicality, performance, and creature comforts. Take for instance this 1955 Ford F-100 Pickup Restomod we have today. Located in Missouri this custom second generation F series is one with looks to kill and performance to boot.
Whilst the first generation F series truck definitely looked the part it's the second generation that has won hearts of diehard collectors and vintage truck enthusiasts alike. This 1955 Ford F-100 Pickup Restomod features a black exterior that brings out those vintage styling cues well. The custom job on this F series truck has been done to perfection a quick peak at the undercarriage goes on to show the attention to detail followed whilst being built up. The interior is where all the custom features gather. Finished off with a gray interior the first thing you would notice when stepping into this truck is Dakota digital dash in place. Sitting inside and you would notice the bench styled seats missing and in place are power seats which captures your preferred seating position. Also commanding attention is the B&M ratchet shifter in place. Modern features like power windows and a vintage heat and air system ensure a comfortable drive and the stereo in place ensures good tunes are available when needed.
With the release of the 2nd generation F-series trucks, you also got new choices in the power train department. The age old side valve engine was now replaced by the more modern overhead valve engine. Whilst this was all nice it doesn't even come close to what's powering this 1955 Ford F-100 Pickup Restomod, namely the legendary 7.0L (427ci) Ford racing cammed v8 engine, the same engine which gained severe popularity with drag racers and Nascar. Pop the hood and the chrome and billet dressed engine compartment really helps this truck stand out and look cool as well. The Power in this truck is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. With the 427 engine in place you are looking at much more power and with the aluminum fuel tank in place you also benefit from the truck being lighter as well. Having a lot of power under the hood is cool but taming all that power is no easy task. Helping you put that power down is a Ford 9" rear end keeping the whole truck together and making sure it handles well. You also get power steering to make your drive easier. This truck also has power disc brakes on all 4 corners to help you stop on time all the time.
