SMOOTH RUNNING 292CI V8, THREE ON THE TREE, READY FOR WORK OR PLAY!
This 1964 Ford F-100 is at a cross roads. Its original-style presentation and correct 292 V8 make it a great period-correct pickup. But at this value price there's also plenty left in the budget to use this as a foundation for a great custom. And as you read all the details, the decision becomes even more difficult.
Like any good workman truck, the Fords of this era were not trying to be too showy, but a custom cab has just the right amount of added panache. Chrome bumpers, a hint of a cowl hood, and the sleek flairside style give this instant vintage appeal. Plus, the full-length white strip highlights the straightness of the panels and really stands out nicely against the burgundy paint. The same goes for the factory wheel covers on color-matched steel wheels. But some of the great-looking pieces also help this remain function pickup. After all, those bed rails attract attention, and when combined with the liner paint in the bed, this is the affordable classic that's also your friend for weekend chores.
You'll probably never tint the windows on this one because you'll want everyone to see how the burgundy and white theme on the exterior is perfectly continued on the interior. Plus, it has all the details, from the cool zipper pouch in the driver's door, to the classic steering wheel, to the way to the streak of white runs across the dash and into the side panels. . The original instruments are still in place and are fully functional right down to the hear/defrost controls. So this this pickup provides the perfect vintage atmosphere.
Under the hood is an exceptionally honest looking 292 cubic-inch V8. The presentation is nice and fresh with the bold blue paint, and even the original-style air cleaner. While the powerplant is correct for the era, this was Ford's optional upgrade. But more than just a torquey motor, it's also surprisingly smooth for a truck engine. With well-matched gears in the three-speed manual transmission, it keeps up with traffic without any issues. Designed for work, the rear end isn't geared for high-speed cruising, but it will roll at 65 MPH without hesitation, and it'll do it with a bed full of 2x4s without complaint.
This one is read for both showing off now and taking to the next level. Complete with build receipts, this is a great vintage F-100 at a gone-tomorrow price. So no matter your plans for this one, you can't have a future with it tomorrow, if you don't call today!
