RECENTLY RESTORED F-100, CUSTOM PAINT & NEW INTERIOR, 351 V8, AUTO, DUALS, A/C!
This 1964 Ford F100 is one cool truck! From the gorgeous paint and smoothed bodywork to the strong-running 351 under the hood, it's a fresh take on an old favorite. Someone has invested a ton of time and money to make this one-of-a-kind pickup truly stand out, and you'll really have to see it in person to get a full dose of its awesomeness.
First off, the two-tone silver-over-red paint job looks fantastic on the upright Ford's sheetmetal. There are a few neat body details that are enhanced by the modern paint treatment, and the relief line running the perimeter of the body is a natural color break. The paint also emphasizes the wonderfully ornate front fenders, which flow neatly into the grille up front, which has also been painted to match. You were probably so busy looking at that gorgeous two-stage urethane paint that you didn't notice that the emblems have been painted silver to match the upper body, a neat detail that makes even knowledgeable folks do a double-take. The bed itself is finished with spray-in bedliner material that looks completely unmarked but is tough enough to still be used as a pickup should. The few pieces of bright trim that do remain, including both bumpers, are in excellent condition and add just the right amount of jewelry.
The interior is classically simple, with black cloth and vinyl upholstery on the original bench seat, simple door panels, and a color-matched dashboard insert. The factory instrument panel is flashy enough to look custom all by itself, with the original speedometer in its center and aftermarket gauges in the outboard positions. A fat 3-spoke steering wheel somehow looks exactly right in this '60s hauler and the A/C unit hanging under the dash is a period-correct piece that's remarkably effective. A decent AM/FM/CD stereo system sounds quite good thanks to plenty of sound-deadening materials and plush carpets on the floor. It shows minimal use and the subtle design and tasteful materials won't go out of fashion like so many over-done customs you see.
The engine is a Ford 351 cubic inch small block V8, which is a nice upgrade over the truck's original 292 cubic inch unit with a 2-barrel carburetor. With an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and a matching 4-barrel carb, this one really wakes up and gives this vintage pickup the moves of a muscle car. It's not necessarily detailed for show, but it's functional, torquey, and the important stuff is right, because it starts easily and idles without getting cranky. The engine bay is quite clean and there's no evidence that this was ever a rusty truck, and service access is still good. Dual exhaust with long-tube headers and throaty mufflers gives it the right tone, and the 3-speed automatic transmission and 9-inch rear don't mind working once in a while. There's power steering up front and front disc brakes to help in the stopping department, and it sits exactly right on those polished Torque Thrust wheels with 255/50/17 Kumho radials all around.
This is a nicely done pickup that's unusual enough to get second glances and so beautifully built that everyone who looks will stick around to see all the details. Call today!
