ONE OWNER TEXAS TRUCK, EXTREMELY STRAIGHT AND SOLID, VERY ORIGINAL F100
This 1967 Ford F-100 is one of those clean old trucks with a great back story (just one owner!) and a minimum of frills. If you liked it when trucks were tools and not suburban commuter vehicles, then this back-to-basics pickup is a fun, affordable way to relive the past.
Yes, that's right, this truck is a one-owner machine that enjoyed a restoration to original specs a few years ago. Having lived its entire life away from the destructive rigors of the snow belt, it was relatively easy to bring it back to factory-fresh condition. What was more challenging was resisting the urge to "upgrade" it along the way, and as a result, it still wears a coat of Pebble Beige paint instead of something more contemporary. While it's not exciting, there's a certain appeal to keeping it the way the factory intended and this blue-collar hauler shows a wonderful honesty that's easy to appreciate. It also respects the way they did it back then, so it's neither too perfect nor haphazardly done, giving it the look it might have had a few months after it went home with its first owner. The sheetmetal is shockingly straight, the fit of all the body parts is quite good, and the industrial look of having all the trim painted black is another feather in this truck's cap. Even the bed wears a set of nicely weathered oak planks for a floor and surrounded by spray-in bed liner material on the sides.
The no-nonsense interior was freshened at the same time they body was repainted and still looks fantastic today. A fresh cloth seat cover means it's comfortable enough to use as a daily driver, and with additions like an automatic transmission, carpets, and dealer-installed under-dash A/C, driving this truck is hardly a penalty. There are no additions or modifications inside, so the dash is full of original instrumentation, the factory AM radio is still handling the entertainment, and the door panels and dash are painted to match the body. Quite honestly, the only deviation from stock is the black leather wrapper on the original steering wheel, but that's easy to remedy if you're a hardcore purist.
Ford's array of powertrains was vast in 1967, and this F-100 uses the rugged and torquey 352 cubic inch V8, which makes for a nice middle ground between the thrifty (but relatively gutless) six cylinders and the thirsty big blocks. With 175 horsepower, it cruises around town with a tough-guy swagger and thanks to a custom dual exhaust system, it sounds great doing it. The engine wears correct Ford Blue engine enamel, stamped steel rocker covers, and the original air cleaner for a period-correct look. The giant compressor for the A/C system dominates the engine bay, and it has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant, so it'll be easy to service in the future. A 3-speed automatic and a 9-inch rear end with 3.25 gears inside mean that it's easy to drive both around town and on the highway, and with its heavy-duty suspension, it's eager to get to work this weekend. Color-matched steel wheels with poverty hubcaps and brand new235/75/15 radials give it just the right utilitarian look.
