SUPERCLEAN F-100, BIG BLOCK 390 V8, C6, PWR STEER & PWR FRNT DISCS, DUAL EXHAUST
Ford fans, never fear, we have great old pickups for you as well. Perhaps they worked harder than their Chevy counterparts, or perhaps fewer were built, but it seems that there are not nearly as many early-70s Fords. Fortunately, we have found this one, which is an extremely clean '72 F-100 Sport Custom that's clearly had a lot of care over the last 45 years in the warm South.
That subtle light blue paint job definitely works on the truck's neatly creased sheetmetal, and there were plenty of choices that wouldn't have aged this well. With a single repaint a few years ago, it still looks great, even up close, with only minor signs of use and age. Still showing some of the '60s detailing but a forward look that would stay with Ford for a generation, this '72 is a neat example of the evolution of the pickup truck. Fit and finish are quite good with straight gaps and a hood that sits right, and just by how the doors close we know it hasn't been worked hard. Note the bright stainless spear that runs from nose to tail on each side, the molded-in fender flares and rocker panel accents, and the giant clamshell hood that offers unparalleled access to the engine bay. It all just works together, giving this truck an instantly-identifiable look that will still stand out in a crowd. The argent silver grille is in excellent condition, sitting above a brightly chromed bumper, while out back the bed has been protected by a professional spray-in bedliner and a pair of bed rails that add practicality.
The crisp black interior takes the truck a good step forward and away from its working-class roots, and offers more evidence that this truck has been loved. It's mostly new, with a fresh seat cover, new carpets, and a replacement dash pad, as well as a cool 3-spoke steering wheel that looks just right. The original gauges are in good order, joined by a column-mounted tachometer and a trio of Sunpro gauges under the dash. There's also a new AM/FM radio in the center of the dash, although it isn't connected to speakers, letting the next owner decide just how much power he'll need in that regard. Overall, the truck retains its original flavor, but it feels far younger than its age would suggest.
The engine is a bright Ford Blue 390 cubic inch V8, which we believe to be the truck's original engine, and the ultra-clean engine bay demonstrates that this is no ordinary work truck. A chrome air cleaner and matching valve covers dress things up a bit and thanks to a 4-barrel carburetor, upgraded camshaft, and a dual exhaust system, this truck moves more like a Mustang with a bed. It starts quickly and easily, and settles into a rumbling idle thanks to long-tube headers with Flowmasters underneath, and pulls hard through all three gears up to highly illegal speeds. Underneath, the chassis and floors are clean, more evidence that this truck has lived an easy life. A C6 3-speed automatic transmission and 9-inch rear will handle any load you can throw at it, and handsome slotted and polished aluminum wheels give it a sporty demeanor. Four fresh 255/70/15 BFGoodrich white-letter radials have been fitted as well, making this a truck that you can use and enjoy immediately.
