Did this truck have IFS and disc brakes? Do you mind sharing the final sales price?

The rarest and most collectible truck is this 1956 Ford with a big window. Big window big window big window big window big window. If you find them you can't keep them for longer than a day everyone wants to own one

It seems like any of the ford big windows are popular. I just finished my 1958 on a late-model chassis as soon as I put it on local craigslist it's sold that Sunday. The guy love the big window with four-wheel-drive and power steering power from this breaks.

I have done a couple of four-wheel-drive trucks on late-model chassis. When I bought them both times the owner said the front driveshaft was out because he did not use the four-wheel-drive. That will almost always be a lie. If the front driveshaft is not in it is for a reason and there is something that will cost about $2000 in my experience to fix in order to get the four-wheel-drive to work. Be weary of four-wheel-drive not hooked up there it is most likely for a reason…

You are so right. The exact same thing happened to me. I was not even able to hook up the four-wheel-drive because it would've been an entire overhaul of the chassis. If the four-wheel-drive is not working be weary

BRichards you are so right. I have had so much luck with these trucks but I have learned from experience to only buy them once they are complete and then turn around and sell them with a few minor fixes. If the four-wheel-drive or chassis is not hooked up there is always a reason why and that is why they are selling. There are too many of these trucks for sale to put yourself in a position to get a cheap one that you know from this forum will eventually cost you too much money if it's even possible to fix. Find then done and working to purchase

My 1959 Chevy Apache truck that sits on a 77 late-model frame was supposed to be a flip but I fell in love with the truck and drive it everywhere. The amount of money I've been offered for it supersedes what I ever expected to sell it so I know that I have a good investment. Everyone loves this truck

Do you have any pictures of it? I would love to see it!!

If is the one I am finishing. I bought it for $4500 and it needed to be repainted. I think once it's done it will be worth $15-$16,000. I will have about $8000 or $9000 in it myself

SZ54, these 1956 Ford f-100 are the hottest trucks on the market today. Congratulations I wish we could find more of these ourselves to flip I buy everyone I could put my hands on
