Erin Francis from Langley, British Columbia, Canada shared this 1956 Ford F-100 truck with us. Erin found the truck in Portland Oregon in near stock condition. In five very busy months, a frame-off restoration was performed as well as a few modifications including independent front suspension, four-link rear suspension with coil overs on all corners, power steering & brakes, plus a few other custom touches.

The truck is powered with a 351 Cleveland, C-4 combo. Erin tells us “I really enjoyed building the truck, and driving it is pretty sweet too.” Erin had previously customized a ’05 Softail Deluxe with closed loop EFI, cams, true dual exhaust and a ton of chrome and says “regardless of the appearance of the bike on the trailer, this duo sees a lot of action, with 40,000 miles on the bike and 7,000 miles on the truck since the rebuild. I believe I was born in the wrong decade as the ’50s is the look for me!”
