302 CI, BLACK ON BLACK, SPRAY-IN BEDLINER, POWER STEERING & BRAKES, FRONT DISC!
Don't worry Ford fans, we've got you covered. While I don't know why more Chevys than Fords seem to have survived, that only makes this 1973 Ford F100 more unique. Besides, V8 power in a black wrapper never goes out of style.
This great-looking black Ford has been treated well for the past 40 years and it shows. The paint was redone a few years ago, and it still presents quite well. However, there's not many signs that this truck ever hauled lumber or bricks during the week or pushed a plow in the winter, indicating the builder already had a very solid truck to work with. In fact, the way it shines, I'm betting that someone special-ordered this truck and kept it shined as polished as his pride-and-joy. These Fords are gaining popularity and they really are great-looking machines, rugged and tough-looking, but with enough style to look at home in a high-end restaurant parking lot. The bright trim strip along the flanks emphasizes the straight lines and good panel alignment, and you'll be pleased to learn that the bumpers, grille, and all the lenses on this truck are brand new. The bed area is been protected with a spray-in bedliner material that wraps around the rails for added protection, so you can still use this truck as designed.
The interior is dressed in its best formalwear, with a black bench seat, matching door panels highlighted in gray, and new black carpets on the floor. For a little glitter, the door sills and gauge bezels are also new, and the three-spoke steering wheel looks awesome. Factory instruments are joined by a column-mounted tachometer that's mounted where you can still see it, but it doesn't block the view of the other gauges. A newer AM/FM/cassette stereo lives in the original radio's location, powering a set of speakers neatly installed behind the seat. As a life-long southern truck, the heater and defroster systems were not needed, so they were removed to save weight and complexity and you'll note how much neater the engine bay appears because of it.
And speaking of engine bays, the 302 cubic inch V8 under the hood was rebuilt about 10,000 miles ago and runs superbly. Torquey and with a great soundtrack to accompany it, the 302 moves the pickup truck easily, empty or full. A few choice upgrades such as an Edelbrock intake and carb, which sits on a 1-inch spacer to help build torque, as well as an open-element air cleaner, all help deliver a stronger sense of urgency when you mash the accelerator. Ford Blue on the valve covers stands out like a beacon in the otherwise satin black engine bay, and with a recent tune-up, it starts quickly and runs superbly. Power steering and brakes mean it's easy to maneuver, and it channels power through a 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end. Ford's rugged "Twin I-Beam" front suspension is as tough as it comes, so you shouldn't be afraid to use the truck as designed. The floors are remarkably clean, as you can see in the photos, and with flashy 15-inch Cragar mags and fat white-letter radials, it looks extremely sporty.
Now is the time to give the old Fords some credit, and few look as good as this all-black F100. Call today!
