56 Ford F100 Project

I’m a little late with this first post but I’m going to start writing about the 1956 Ford F-100 project that I’ve been working on.

I purchased the truck in November 2009 through a winning bid on EBay. After renting a U-Haul trailer and driving over to Grand Prairie I picked up the truck and unloaded it over at my shop.

I didn’t take pictures at the time, but I did end up taking some pictures so I could get it covered under an insurance policy.

This is what I currently have, but here’s a photo of what I’m after:

Foose F100 1

This is the Chip Foose F-100 from the Overhaulin’ program on the Discovery Channel.

I’m going to use part of this blog to talk about the truck and all things related.

    I look forward to seeing the progress you make with your truck. I am a fan of the F100’s and I have two. One is basically a stock 54, 239 three on the tree truck. The only difference is that it has a low wooden stake-bed. The other I am Hot Rodding. My latest ideas have changed from a 302 with a c4 to a 350 with a turbo 400. I was lucky enough to get that one in the Nov issue of Popular Hot Rodding magazine in the “Under Construction” section.
    Keeping a photo record on-line would help motivate the rest of us out here who also have projects.

      Thanks for the response Randy. I have a bunch more pictures showing the build process. I’ll try to get the rest of the progress uploaded this weekend.

    That’s an awesome goal man – following Foose as a guideline. You’re going to have one hell of a ride on your hands when done. 🙂

    Have you seen The Expendables yet? Maybe the custom F100 they have may kick you into a higher gear:
