FRAME-OFF RESTORED '67, STRONG 352 Y-BLOCK, 4BBL, AUTO, FLOWMASTER, SUPERCLEAN
The last F-100 like this that we featured sold in about a week, which indicates that Ford collectors have caught on to the red-hot truck market. Well, you're in luck, because this handsome, frame-off restored 1967 Ford F-100 has a great look, a strong-running V8 engine, a few smart upgrades, and is still ready, willing, and able to put in a day's work around the homestead.
Two-tone paint treatments were wildly popular with pickup buyers in the '60s, and it's easy to see why. This Ford looks remarkably trim in its red and white combination, almost too stylish to be just a pickup, don't you think? Ford designers were fans of the "less is more" school of thought, and the slab-sided bed is accented with a white rub strip that runs the length of the truck and makes it look sleek and smooth. As a lifelong southern truck, you know it was never a rust bucket, and thanks to a repaint a few years ago, it still looks fresh. Even the bed is dent-free and straight, meaning this was never a truck that needed to work for a living, although the spray-in bedliner means you can put it to work today without a second thought. There isn't much chrome, but things like the bumpers and oversized side mirrors are in great shape and add a bit of sparkle to the industrial-strength Ford.
The original bench is still in place, and now wears a reproduction black vinyl seat cover that gives it a great look as well as low maintenance. Details like the door panels and instruments are 100% original and in outstanding condition, and overhead there's a custom consolette with built-in speakers for the AM/FM/CD stereo. The big, red wheel feels substantial and makes wheeling the big Ford pretty easy and there's a trick gauge cluster strapped to the steering column that puts all the auxiliary dials in the same place. The speedometer and fuel gauge are original, and the original AM radio in the dash is there as a place-holder only, mostly because it looks right. Recent black carpets and a new black dash pad round out the upgrades that make this vintage hauler feel very comfortable in today's world.
The 352 cubic inch V8 is a relatively rare option in these trucks, and this is indeed a Y-code truck, which means the 352 is how this one was born. Topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and with a brand new dual exhaust system, performance is lively with or without a load in back. The engine bay is full of freshly restored components and lots of Ford Blue paint, but nothing that alters the truck's basic originality. Details like the accessory windshield washer bag are a neat feature and correct reproduction decals were used wherever possible. The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts easily and spins the original 9-inch rear end which is easily up to the task of any job thanks to 3.25 gears inside. Even the air cleaner and its 352 decal are as the factory made them, more evidence that this truck has always been treated right. Underneath, you'll be astounded by how clean it is, and there's just no evidence of any previous damage, from the Twin I-Beam front suspension to the heavy-duty rear drum brakes. Period perfect Cragar mag wheels add a sporty look and carry staggered 245/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear white letter radials.
Trucks rarely get a restoration this nice. Built with an eye towards authenticity but adding a few creature comforts to make it usable every day, this is a hobby vehicle that can definitely earn its keep. This one won't last long, call today!
