1966 Ford F100
In 1925 the Ford Motor Company introduced the first "pickup" based on the Model T Runabout. Ford offered the rear "pickup box" separately at their dealer parts department for $25.00. The box was then bolted onto the back of the vehicle as an accessory. Since the box was "picked up" at the parts department by the customer, the term "pickup" took hold for this style of vehicle. Later the box was installed at the factory and evolved into today's pickup trucks.
For consignment a totally restored Ford F-100 pickup truck. Lots of attention to detail has been paid to this truck, and this final product shows it. These trucks seem to be very popular at Classic Auto Mall lately, so it is suggested you show up sooner rather than later for your chance to have it permanently in your collection.
The beneficiary of a complete frame off restoration 6 years ago, this truck is bathed in White with a Red top. Newly restored badging, a near perfect gray sprayed grille, good chromed brite work, and all-around original look F-100 from Texas...why would you have anything else down there? The bed is sprayed with a liner material in black and becomes immediately impervious to any marring or scratching. Adorning each corner are deep dish with moon style polished wheels that drip with 1960's style. Consigner states every nut and bolt was unscrewed, restored/replaced, and put back together… now that's attention to detail!
A complete restoration here too, utilizing red vinyl buckets from a 1965 Ford Custom cab truck. Red carpeting covers the floor and is in beautiful condition. Of the era, rubber floor mats protect the floor. The steel dash has been sprayed with a snow-white paint, as has the steering column. Adding some color contrast, a red insert with a simple speedometer is noted, as is the red original restored steering wheel. Door panels have also been sprayed with white paint and have a red vinyl panel inserted into each door. Between the seats in the hump and within reach of the driver is a B&M shifter. Headliner is the factory style covering also in white.
Perhaps one of the cleanest, simplest engine bays seen in a while, a 1978 F-150 302ci V8 which was completely rebuilt, bored .030 over, a mild cam installed, roller tip rockers, bearings, crank and hardened push rods. While we're at it, add a new oil pump and pan, a 600 CFM Holly-Weiand intake, and the list goes on and on, and is included in the documentation of this restoration. Attached to the back is a 1971 C4 automatic transmission rebuilt using heavy duty internals. At the rear is a 9” posi rear from Ford with a 3.25 gear ratio and also completely rebuilt.
Like showroom new, with a relocated gas tank to the rear of the bed, a custom exhaust, custom drive shaft, CPP disc brakes on front and rear drums, and a manual steering mechanism, which once you get moving steers easily, particularly with the Brodie knob, thanks granny!
A virtually new truck with plenty of upgrades, and meticulous attention paid to every aspect of this beautiful restored example. Hop in, turn the key, and head on down that dusty road leaving behind only the cloud of dust...fade in Banjo music.
