Anyone know the specs on that beast?
X2. I have a 56 and would never butcher it into a 53-5.. I had a 55 I couldnt give away for 2 years... It met its fate with my torches one night because I was sick of looking at it... Sad part was, It was a CLEAN cab, minimal cancer in one corner, and the best drip rails Ive ever seen on one of these trucks.Can't figure out why they'd have had to convert '56 trucks with the square A-pillars and wrap-around windshield, rather than find three '53-'55 F100s. The article said the '55 was rare... but the cabs, fenders and boxes are the same from '53-'55... seems like it'd be easier to find three examples of a 3-year run than three examples of a 1-year-only cab.
The truck in the movie is pretty bad-ass though.
