A 1956 Ford F-100 Panel Delivery is one of the coolest ways for everything from promoting your business to a weekend surf wagon. And so when you can find one that has the right look and plenty of original touches, then you know it's a great deal.
The second-gen F-Series trucks are red hot right now for their cool design with the wraparound windshield and distinct grille. So it gets even better when you can get this lineage in something that is rarer, more interesting, and more versatile. Panel vans are so substantial that they are literally hard to miss. But this one doesn't confuse size with boldness. The color is close to Ford's Banner Blue. It's glossy enough to show off the curves of the well-kept sheet metal, but it also has the right aging since the restoration that makes it feel like an authentic worker. There are nice vintage touches like the chrome bumpers, running boards, red wheels with two-piece trim, and whitewalls to match the grille. It has the correct details, right down to the badging. So it's hard not to envision putting the name of your company (or a fictitious one) in cursive writing down the side. After all, this one has such a genuine classic style, it could give your business decades of credibility even if you just opened your doors yesterday.
Open the door to all those great classic Ford truck features you love. The large three-spoke steering wheel, smooth wraparound dash, tall shifter, and an overall durable feeling that has lasted for decades. But this one also has something special. Behind those black bucket seats is plenty of protected storage for you to carry all the equipment you need for business, pleasure, or both! Just like the pickups of the era, this has beautiful lumber in a real wood bed. So people will love to see you open those large rear doors no matter if you are camping or tailgating.
Under the hood is a well-done look of Ford's 272 cubic-inch V8. It has the same kind of vintage honesty as the rest of this delivery truck, but the yellow block and classic Ford valve covers are pure classic cool. This was one of the first years for the OHV V8, and so it's the right year to get to buy. This fires up eagerly, and it has the right power and torque to really keep this panel van moving. Plus, you get full control over it with the three-speed manual transmission. And as authentic as it looks, there are also worthwhile supporting upgrades like an alternator and a newer aluminum radiator.
Over 65 years later, this Panel Delivery is still delivering... only instead of industrial goods, this one is bringing eye-catching vintage vehicle attention. Don't miss out, call today!
