BIG BLOCK 390 V8 POWER, AFTERMARKET A/C, FRONT DISCS, VERY SOLID F-100

Glancing through our inventory, you'll find one very obvious fact: pickup trucks are the fastest growing segment of the old car hobby. Trucks like this 1965 Ford F-100 represent tremendous value and typically offer big horsepower and great vintage looks, all for a fraction of the price of their passenger car counterparts. And you could certainly do worse than this pretty bright red pickup.

We have photos of the restoration that shows the truck in all its glory and details like the cab corners, fenders, and other important parts are completely unmolested original steel, indicative of an easy life someplace warm. It makes for the ideal foundation for the bright red paint and sharply-rendered bodywork, both of which make this truck a real eye-catcher. The only major modification during the build was the removal of the stainless side trim, but the clean body lines support it and subtlety is something that we always appreciate around here. The doors fit well and the painted grille and bumpers give it a classic "down on the farm" look that's a big part of old trucks' appeal. Original emblems were retained, there's a light tint to the glass, and the bed has a spray-in bedliner and diamond-plate tool box so it remains eminently functional as a truck.

The interior sticks to tradition, offering a full-width bench seat, now covered in attractive black vinyl with period-correct pleats. Basic door panels with diamond-tufted inserts add a trick look and the original instruments have been replaced by a full array of white-faced gauges from Ford. The panel they created to hold those new gauges fits rather well and includes marker lights for the turn signals and high beams, with the secondary controls lined up directly underneath. An aftermarket A/C system was neatly stashed under the dash with eyeball vents and that ultra-long Lokar shifter has an old-school hot rod feel. The wood-rimmed steering wheel and Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo contrast nicely with the black rubber floor mats, reminding us that despite the creature comforts, this is still a truck that's ready, willing, and able to work.

Trucks are gaining popularity because they often include big block power, and that's certainly the case with this Ford. A 1973-vintage 390 cubic inch V8 fits neatly under the hood and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching intake manifold. The block is good old Ford Blue and the bright red MSD ignition components give the engine bay a detailed look. Power steering and brakes are welcome in anything that weighs this much and with discs up front, it offers better-than-average stopping power to match its performance. A 3-speed automatic transmission channels the power aft to the original 9-inch rear end, and it barks through a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system with crossover and two chrome tips peeking out from under the rear bumper. 3.73 gears give it a lot of punch around town as well as the ability to haul just about anything you can fit in the bed and there's no such thing as a vintage vehicle that looks bad with shiny Cragar mags, especially when they're ten inches wide in back! Staggered 225/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials complete the look.

Nicely built and documented with a ton of receipts and photos, this is a fun, affordable truck with the moves of a muscle car. Call today!
