VERY CLEAN STRAIGHT, BELIEVED ORIGINAL FRESH 292 V8, VERY GOOD PAINT & INTERIOR!
This 1964 Ford F-100 is an honest, dependable truck, that's been nicely restored...which makes it always welcome at shows. But because it also has the biggest V8 available at the time, this F-Series can still do a hard day's work when called to duty.
People will do a double take when they see this pickup. After all, these trucks were often used and abused, and this looks like its showing up for its first day of work on the farm. Its amazing condition is a true testament to the recent restoration. The paint is new, and underneath is straight sheetmetal, with uniform panel gaps that look better than ever. It's not trying to be too showy with too much brightwork, which makes each piece really noticeable. This includes the chrome strip with a racing red stripe, that runs the length of the truck. Of course there's no missing the two-piece Ford chrome hubcaps (but that's probably because you're also paying attention to the whitewall tires.) Still, beyond all these appearance features, this pickup is always ready to work. In fact, the truck bed has had tough painted diamond plating installed, so you can take on any weekend project.
The interior is just as green as the exterior. It has all the details, right from the zipper pouch in the driver's door, to the streak of white that runs across the dash and into the side panels. The original instruments are still in place and are fully functional right down to the hear/defrost controls. While trucks are supposed to be basic, this one does offer some nice upgrades that are not out of place, such as the plush cloth bench seat, and a nice set of auxiliary gauges.
Under the hood is an exceptionally honest looking V8 with a bit of a surprise. Not only does it show signs of being the original powerplant, but this is the 292 cubic-inch motor. That's right, they didn't get any larger than this optional engine for '64. Plus, it's truly up for work duty, thanks to a rebuild around 1,500 miles ago. The V8 makes great torque and is surprisingly smooth for a truck engine. With well-matched gears in the three-speed manual transmission, it keeps up with traffic without any issues. Designed for work, the rear end isn't geared for high-speed cruising, but it will roll at 65 MPH without any problems, and it'll do it with a bed full of 2x4s without complaint.
This is the F-100 that you can haul a load on Saturday and take to the car show on Sunday. This has been beautifully restored to remind you of a hard day's work, and best of all, you can pick it up at a workman's price. Call today!!
