Slammed 56 Ford F100

Hello, Fellow car lovers, Just found your web site and like all the info.
I have always loved cars since i was 5 years old. I am now 37 and still getting into more projects. I can thank Pops and my Bro for that. Have always done most of my work my self. Funny thing is I am a white collar worker, but love turning the wrenches on the weekends. Friends and Family like to crack jokes about that. Calling my suit and tie i wear M-F the monkey suit. My real uniform is jeans and a hot rod T shirt on the weekends. Check out the 56 ford project tell me what you guys think. before and after. I Air bagged front,flipped the rear saddles took a picture and still not low enough. I started the step notch with rear air bags will post pictures once done going for a complete different look.

Thanks

Interesting. What drive train does it have in it now? I see it has tags on it. Is it currently street legal? Looks like a lot of fun.


I wanted a hotrod, but found one that is too close to stock (and a great price) to cut up. It is a very reliable driver.

Needs body work and paint though.

Thanks guys,

The drive train is a mild beefed 350 with a 700r has O.G. rear end with 4.11's for now. I had the hubs drilled to 5 on 4.75 bolt pattern for a better selection of rims. Cost was a $100.00 for both axles. If any you guys need axle hubs drilled let me know. This guy is top notch machinist at more than fair prices. Checked a lot of places and this guy has the machines and the knowledge. I am on a budget build now.. so using what i got for the time been. Plans for a 9'' later on.
