1956 Ford F125 Extended Cab Pickup
Custom F100 Ford pickup trucks come in many varieties, but few of them have the kind of body modifications found in this custom hauler now designated as the F125. Though the extended cab is the most obvious transformation, this great looking truck carries a heavy load of surprises – and, it is available at a fraction of the invested cost. A short interview with the owner is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5inEFfKbYOU
The electrically operated tilt forward hood on this 1956 Ford opens to reveal a tuned port, fuel injected Ford power plant bored and stroked to 427 CID – a brute mill delivering north of 600 horsepower. The drive train features a Bowtie Engineering Stage 3, bullet-proof, 700R4 four speed automatic overdrive transmission, custom 2 piece driveline and Winters variable ratio quick change rear end with 3.83:1 to 4.41:1 gear options. The truck rides on a custom built chassis with polished TCI independent front suspension, 4 bars rear, adjustable Air Ride Technology bag system, burly 12 inch Wilwood power disk brakes at all 4 corners, and big B A D 18 & 20 inch alloy rims wrapped with high performance BF Goodrich rubber.
The hauler features a huge 4 core aluminum radiator with electric fans, and an 8 quart pan and oil cooler to keep it running cool even in the fierce summer heat of Las Vegas when the Vintage AC system is cranked up to the max. Inside, there is a custom dash with Dakota Digital instrumentation, a large mirror with view screen for a front view camera to avoid parking space damage to the front roll pan, and an over the top stereo with roof mounted speakers. Other creature features include power windows, power door poppers, an Ididit polished tilt wheel steering column topped by a steering wheel that matches the rims. The steel center console houses air bag controls, auxiliary indicators, radio, convenience lights, and a storage compartment.
This Custom hot rod truck has been a work in progress for 20 years. In addition to the 22 inch cab extension with suicide opening rear doors, the 2 inch nosed hood has a functional air scoop and the front end of this big window Ford exhibits a custom front air dam. Out back, there is a rear roll pan, split barn door type tailgate, and molded in LED taillights and turn signals. The hinged, lift up cherry wood bed with stainless steel runners reveals the chassis details including the 3 inch ceramic coated exhaust system and dual fuel tanks. Despite everything that has been done to this fantastic pickup – parts and labor adding up to more than $100,000 – there is still cosmetic work to do.
This unique hauler has been a work in progress for two decades. There are a half dozen places on the body where the stunning House of Kolors Sunset Pearl paint now shows its age with some deep scratches and chipping. The 9 way adjustable power seats from a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville have not been upholstered, and there are some interior trim items that were never installed. Of course, none of these minor issues affect the fact that this Ford runs and drives great. Unfortunately, the seller now must make his failing health a top priority, so the Ford will be sold as is. The advertised price, therefore, is negotiable. Serious buyers are invited to inspect this truck in Las Vegas. It is licensed and registered in Nevada with a clear title.
