Long-Term Ownership
Great Fun for Half a Century
Joe Greeves
As a regular reader of this magazine, you know all about cool custom trucks but very few can say they have been enjoying one for the better part of a lifetime. Even fewer can say they have a truck that’s been in the family for 50 years. Jack Sorich’s connection to the hobby is clearly longer than most. From Louisville, Kentucky, he is a retired accountant and has been involved with custom rides since he was 16 years old. Originally from California, Jack found this 1956 F-100 on a used car lot 50 years ago and has been making regular enhancements ever since. The truck was all original way back then and the body was in good shape, but it took about a week to get it off the lot. The tires had to be pumped up, oil filled, plugs and distributor replaced, and a new battery added just to get the truck running. With a few minor upgrades, Jack drove the truck for more than 15 years, powered by the original 272ci cast-iron Ford Y-block engine.
