'56 Ford F-100, Interior.

56 Ford F-100, interior

We can't offer you a 15-second "sit" test like Ford dealers did in the 50's, but we think you'll agree we've made a few improvements since then.

In 1953 Ford pickups received interior amenities like a dome light, lighter, arm rests, and sun visors. We've added a few of our own; Dakota Digital digital gauges, Vintage Air heater/defrost unit, ididit steering column, Grant steering wheel, power adjustable seats, power windows and a killer sound system. 15 seconds behind the wheel simply wouldn't be enough.

We even gave it a new dome light and visors. Safety was also improved with 3-point shoulder harnesses.

Combination leather/cloth seats make for some comfy cruising.

The CD changer is tucked under the seat. On the right is a good view of the Vintage Air heater/defroster.
