SURVIVOR, 292 Y BLOCK V8, MANUAL, VIRTUALLY RUST/DENT FREE, AMAZINGLY ORIGINAL
You gotta get excited about a pickup that has spent over half a century as a workhorse, and yet it's eligible, and could probably win for survivor status at you next car show. This 1964 Ford F-100 is a true lesson in honest endurance.
Take a look at that Skylight Blue paintwork. It might not be the freshest you've ever seen, and that's because that's the exact same paint this F-100 had when it was delivered to the Charlotte area over a half-century ago. So considering this has been on the same truck for well over a generation, you're looking at award-worthy factory application. This pickup was about going to work, so you won't find much chrome, but that's actually is an advantage. The white bumper, wheels, and F-O-R-D on the tailgate complement the light blue paint quite nicely on this essentially rust free, and almost ding/dent free gem.
The colors of the exterior continue inside. The blue vinyl carries decades of history worn in by the previous two owners. All the correct details are in place, from the zipper pouch in the driver's door, to the streak of white that runs across the dash. The original instruments are still in place and are fully functional right down to the hear/defrost controls. While trucks were supposed to be basic, this F-100 is one of the few you'll find with an original AM radio.
Under the hood is Ford's premium Y-block motor. This 292 cubic-inch V8 had such the perfect combination of smooth running operation, and torque on demand, that it was utilized in this pickup as well as the Thunderbird cars. It shows all signs of being the original powerplant, and it looks amazingly honest in the engine bay, right down to the original sticker on the air cleaner. Good maintenance means you can get into this pickup and fire it right up without hesitation. Plus, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission is geared to keep up with traffic. So this Ford is still ready to eat up the road miles, and get to work. It even sits on modern Hankook Optimo tires, so you can still get good grip no matter the weather.
This F-100 has been going to work for over 50 years, and it's nowhere near ready for retirement. This can be an excellent restoration candidate, but just as it is, there will be crowds at the car show amazed at just how great this survivor wears its history.
