Rotting In Style - 1956 Ford F100

Alright guys. It’s time. New camera, new collection, and a new ride. This is a 1956 Ford F100, and it’s part of the new “Penguin Collection”. This is at the Penguin Hot Rods’ location at Winter Park Paint and Collision located in Florida.

You may remember a 1968 Mustang fastback that I filmed a while back from the Retro Collection. The guy who owns that, owns this truck, and the Mustang’s current state isn’t much better.

The story behind the truck (and the Mustang) is when he was growing up, his father owned the truck and Mustang. His father told him that he could only have one. Naturally, he picked the Mustang, but now he has both.

While this truck may not look like much now, the restoration was started at one point. This included putting the body on the frame from a 1980s Crown Vic. It also sports the drive train from that car as well, which would be a 5.0 V8.

This truck is far from complete though. It’s rough, sort of rusty, and missing just about everything but the engine, frame, and body. Well, there are a bunch of parts tossed in the bed and in the cab, so perhaps all of those loose bits could be enough to form a complete truck. This truck (and the Mustang) WILL be restored, but for now, she remains sitting, Rotting in Style.

To see more from this collection, and quite a bunch still left over from Alaska and the other collections shot on lesser quality cameras, then make sure you come back to The Random Automotive.
