COOL HARLEY-DAVIDSON LOOK, COMES WITH A 292 V8 AND 4 SPEED MANUAL, FUN RIDE!
A cool old pickup that isn't a Chevy, how interesting! With clean good looks and a modern twist on a relatively unusual truck, this 1959 Ford F-100 offers a fresh take you may not have considered before.
We like the two-tone paint on this truck, offering a familiar Harley-Davidson look much like a late-model F150. With the kind of no-nonsense conservatism that seemed to drive Ford truck designers, it still looks sensible, but the custom touches really make it stand out. The 1959 Ford F-100 was a clean sheet design and admittedly the earlier F100s were a hard act to follow, but this is a thoroughly modern-looking truck in every way. Even more remarkable is the quality of the restoration, which shows extremely well. Gaps are good all around, the flat-sided bed is super straight, and the paint is rendered in modern urethane but without any metallics, so it looks very much like the new HD pickups found in the dealerships. The bed was finished with spray-in bedliner material so it's durable, and doing it in black makes it virtually disappear and keeps the truck looking authentic. The big grille shines up beautifully, the front bumper was painted body color to help it blend in. There's a hood scoop on top just for fun and it's wearing proper Harley-Davidson badges and graphics on the bed sides just like the late-models. Is it perfect? No. But if you want attention, this truck delivers in a big way!
The big windshield and wrap-around rear window make the cab bright and airy and the black and orange color scheme continues here as well. The cloth seat cover is plain and simple, like the rest of the truck, and it has simple gray carpets to reinforce the working-class image into which it was born. The two-tone colors wrap around the door panels and dashboard, so it's clean and simple, with a large-diameter wood-rimmed steering wheel that makes it easy maneuver the big pickup without difficulty. The factory instruments have been replaced with a set of light-colored Dolphin gauges in a billet panel and all the secondary controls are lined up neatly right underneath. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo system and the 4-speed manual is shifted using a long lever with a glass door knob on top that's a unique touch. And, of course, a set of Harley-Davidson floor mats make it complete.
It's so honest that even the original 292 cubic inch "Thunderbird Special" V8 remains under the hood. It hasn't been swapped for a late-model crate motor and instead offers a unique sound and feel that is all part of the charm of owning a vintage vehicle. The engine bay shows signs of regular maintenance, although it's not quite as highly detailed as the body or interior. There's an original air cleaner up top, corporate red paint on the engine itself, and stylish valve covers with FORD block letters on their faces, as well as small Harley-Davidson emblems. The only notable non-stick components are a 12-volt alternator for electricity and a set of long-tube headers. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts easily and with a fresh front axle, it feels confident going about its business. There's also a dual exhaust system with glasspack mufflers that give it that old-school burbly exhaust note. Painted steel wheels match the orange bodywork and are the right combination of flashy and correct, and they wear 6.70-15 whitewalls and Harley-Davidson center caps that are the perfect finishing touch.
Flashy, clean, and affordable, this handsome, useful, and somewhat rare Ford pickup represents an alternative to what everyone else is doing. Call today!
