FRAME OFF RESTORED, EXTREMELY CLEAN, 351 CLEVELAND V8, RESTORED TO MOSTLY STOCK
There just can't be many '70s Ford pickups nicer than this 1972 F100. The fact that this one also happens to run like a muscle car is just icing on the cake, since it represents a ton of performance and fun for not a lot of cash. And it's practical to boot!
Nobody can argue with how fantastic this truck looks in bright red (OK, it's a little bit orange, but the color absolutely rocks on this pickup). The recipient of a frame-off restoration, there's just nothing like a high-quality, high-visibility paint job if you want to attract attention. With straight panels that show almost minimal flaws, someone invested a bunch of cash to get this truck into its current condition. It sure looks like the entire truck was disassembled, as there's just no trace of the original blue finish. And if all that sizzling red paint wasn't enough, there's nice brightwork like the front and rear bumpers that sparkle like jewelry and a nicely finished grille that has a nice, soft shine. There's also a fresh spray-in bedliner and tool box, just in case you actually need to use this truck as, you know, a real truck. It's certainly up to the task.
Like the exterior, the interior was completely freshened and looks almost as good as new in every way. New seat covers, door panels, and dash pad look factory fresh and completely correct. Ford offered a full array of instrumentation in the F100, and the neat way the gauges are arranged in an oval is quite a styling statement for a utilitarian pickup truck. The instrument panel itself is shockingly well preserved, with a nice satin silver bezel and crystal clear lenses on the original gauges, and the steering wheel with horn ring is one of the last of the old-school hoops. For some entertainment while working or playing, this F100 also offers a Retrosound AM/FM stereo head unit that sounds decent and looks like it was born in the center of the dash. If you've ever wondered what a brand new 1972 Ford F100 might have looked like inside, well, here's your answer.
The muscle car analogy is apt, thanks to the 351 cubic inch V8 under the hood. Recently rebuilt and delivering effortless torque, the engine runs as good as it looks. Fresh Ford Blue paint keeps it authentic-looking, while goodies like a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock intake manifold (cleverly painted blue to give it a disguise) help build horsepower while keeping it civilized enough to drive every day. It spins to life easily with a healthy rumble from the oversized single exhaust system, and thanks to goodies like a giant radiator up front and power steering, it's happy to trundle through traffic without getting cranky. A C6 3-speed automatic channels power to the 9-inch out back, making one of the most invincible powertrains ever created and you can still put it to work if you want. Shiny aluminum wheels look exactly right on the truck since they're factory-issue for a late model Ranger, and wear oversized blackwall radials that stuff the wheel wells perfectly.
Very, very few trucks like this survived, let alone received high-quality restorations. Nicely finished and ready to work or play, this F-100 offers a lot of charm for not a lot of cash. Call now!
