Ford F-100 (1956)

As far as classic trucks are concerned, the F-100 rates among the top models in most people's eyes. Its brutish styling won it fans right away, plus it was one of the most powerful, and therefore fastest, trucks in its day. It quickly achieved cult status in later years, because it was one of the best-looking Stepside trucks to be produced, and also one of the last, as the Fleetside styling was introduced just two years later (with the sides flush with the cab). This custom version uses suspension kits front and rear to lower the truck as far as it can practically go, but doesn't use modern trickery anywhere else. The engine is a tuned version of the Ford Y-block from the 1950s with triple two-barrel carbs, and the truck still drives through a three-speed manual transmission which makes performance lively. In order to stop it, the owner has fitted power disc brakes.
