Snowplow Of The Day: September 25, 2012
Today's truck is M2 Machines' 1956 Ford F-100.
The 1956 F-100 is a one-year only body style. The 1956 F-100 is easily identified as it has vertical windshield pillars and a wrap around windshield as opposed to the sloped pillars and angled windshield of the 1953-55. The 1956 model also offered a larger wraparound back window as an option. Starting in 1956, Ford offered the very rare "Low GVWR" versions of each model. Also in 1956, seat belts became an option.
The '56 F-100 was available with either the inline 223 cubic inch inline six which offered up 137 horsepower or the 272 cubic inch Y-Block V8 with 173 horsepower.
