After a two year search, Jeff Grubba of Arlington Heights said the factory Mountain Green paint and patina on this truck sold him on the purchase.

The Ford has survived nearly six decades on the road because it has spent much of its existence in the dry Arizona climate.

Ford made about 125,000 F100 pickup trucks in 1955.

The truck is shifted using a three-speed manual transmission.

The old Ford Power King V-8 under hood produces 130 horsepower.

About this Article

Often life, and the open road, are best absorbed rolling down the slow lane. That's why Jeff Grubba bypassed the traditional Detroit muscle car when it came time to add this 1955 Ford F100 to his personal collection. "Ever since I was a little kid, I've liked trucks," he said. "I settled on this particular one because of the factory Mountain Green paint. It's just a fantastic, eye-catching color that really stands out."
