Refinished in its original Meadow Green, the trucks paint and trim, including the white grille, are in overall excellent order but the F350 badges that belong on the sides of the hood are missing. The glass panels, including the one piece curved windshield and 48inch wide rear window, are clear and intact and the trucks lights are clear. The horn is inoperable. One of the distinguishing F350 features is its ventilateddisc wheels. Here, they are painted black and are surrounded by 7.5017 tires in front and 7.5016 light truck tires in the rear. All of the body panels on its 130inch wheelbase are straight, including its doublewall steel doors and steel rub rails, and solid.
Behind the cab is a ninefoot long flatbed platform with mounting holes for wooden or metal stakes. It is in very good order, as is the trucks black front bumper and the engine bay is exceptionally tidy and very well presented.
Under that hood is a rebuilt 223 CID inline sixcylinder (VIN code D) engine linked to a rebuilt fourspeed heavyduty manual transmission. All of the trucks bearings and seals have been replaced, it features a reproduction radiator, fuel tank, lights and trim pieces.
Inside, the restoration continues with a dark green bench seat that is in very good order, black floor mats (no carpet here; this is a work truck) and a good, workaday headliner. The metal instrument panel has complete instrumentation, is painted the same color as the body and looks keen The original threespoke steering wheel is present and the inner door panels present the same Meadow Green as the rest of the body. The mirror glass looks good and the shifter is in good shape. There is no radio but there is a heater under the instrument panel.
Ford redesigned the FSeriesfor 1953 with a more integrated look. The pickups also obtained their widely familiar names: The F1 now became theF100, the F2 and F3 now became theF250 and the F4 now became the 1tonF350. Optional interior amenities were new, including a dome light, lighter, armrests, sun visors and a radio.
There were few changes again for the 55 F100 over the 53 and 54. A new grille was designed for the 55 F100 as well as matching chrome parts. Side chrome hood trim became more elaborate rather than the simpler block F100 letters from the 53 and 54. A custom cab option was available on the 55 F100. A custom cab truck came with chrome Custom Cab door emblems. Some paint colors changed for the 55 F100. Engine combinations remained the same on the 54 and 55 F100. Thesixcylinder engine'sdisplacement was increased from 215 to 223 CID and power steering was introduced as an option. All were overhead valve engines.
Ford claimed a 30 percent share of the truck market in 1955. Competition to this F350 in 1955 included Chevrolets Task Force truck, Dodges Cseries truck, GMCs Blue Chip truck and Mercurys M4 truck (Canada only).
