Originally my father Sam’s shop truck, I bought the vehicle at the age of 13. I spent the next 3 years rebuilding and restyling the pickup, settling on a root beer brown paint color. It became his daily driver throughout high school and his early college years.

After years of use and storage, the vehicle eventually made its way to the front lot of the Foose Design shop where it sat for a few years. But the truck was never out of my thoughts. I drew sketches and concepts of how I would like to customize it.

In 2005, as part of the show Overhaulin’, the truck was “stolen” from the Foose Design lot. Unbeknownst to me, my dad Sam led a team of builders and designers in reforming the ’56 into the truck it is today. They were able to use my drawings as their design template.

The completed truck was unveiled at the 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas by Jack Roush. I was emotional to say the least. I look forward to the day when his son Brock will inherit this family heirloom.
