1956 F-350 Dump Truck Ready for Barrett-Jackson in Reno
August 1st, 2013 by Manuel Carrillo III
Each year, Barrett-Jackson holds world-famous auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona; Palm Beach, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada.
For 2013, Barrett-Jackson has introduced a new event in Reno, Nevada — the Hot August Nights Auction Presented by Barrett-Jackson, happening August 8th to the 10th at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. The new auction will serve as one of the main attractions during the 27th annual Hot August Nights classic car festival, which brings in hundreds of thousands of people for its show-n-shines, cruises, drag races and concerts.
Here is one of the classics that will be crossing the auction block in Reno:
Barrett-Jackson Lot 456 – 1956 Ford F-350 Dump Truck
Be the talk of the construction site with this 1956 Ford F-350 dump truck: a heavy hauler that looks great in its Spitfire Red paint. What wouldn’t look great is seeing the lustrous mahogany-walnut dump bed put to commercial use; employing this as a beast of burden would be an outright sin. Up front, the ’56 F-350 has a 272 V8 mated to a four-speed manual.
Bottom line, this is a childhood dream ready to manifest for someone. Experience more of the dream in the gallery below.
The Hot August Nights Auction serves as the replacement for the popular Barrett-Jackson Orange County Auction that ran from 2010 to 2012. According to Barrett-Jackson, the Southern California event outgrew its location at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa.
Hot August Nights kicks off Friday, August 2nd and Saturday, August 3rd on the Nevada side of south Lake Tahoe. The event continues in Reno/Sparks August 6th to 11th.
