1964 Ford F100 Pickup
The 1964 advertising for the F100 stated that toughness and comfort can live together and do so on the F100. Versatility was the key trying to coax the suburban dads to put themselves into a pickup, in lieu of that second car for mom. A strong new body, and a smooth new ride, would it get any better?
For consignment a well restored F100 that is in great shape on the exterior and comfortable on the interior. Near perfect badging, chrome, paint, fit, finish, and bed. This is a turnkey truck, meaning that you come in, purchase the truck, and drive it away with no additional work, or effort on your part. Just go and start to show!
A very tasteful and nice visual mixture of Maroon and White interplay with straight steel panels minding their gaps very well. Beautiful perfectly aligned trim spears with showroom condition badging run from stem to stern at the belt line. The original style grille, now pristine shows in its 1964 glory, with nary a fault on it. You gotta love the Custom Cab badging in script writing attached to each door. A shout out to the beautiful white vinyl cover for the bed which is nice and tight as well as sparkling clean. A look into the bed and we can see it was lined with texture paint. To the rear where the Ford painted badging is on the gate, another pristine bumper wraps everything neatly up. We will not forget the tinted glass, and shiny Cragars on all 4 corners on this slightly lowered truck.
The tasteful treatment carries on in the interior with a large bench stretching from matching door panel to door panel. All this in red crushed velour with white vinyl bolsters and the doors have white stitched panels on the uppers. The original looking dash has been two toned with a maroon dash top, and white front. Original gauge cluster has been retained but rechromed and it looks showroom. Hanging below the dash is a Vintage air conditioning unit and fronting it is the original restored steering wheel complete with attached tachometer. Rugged loop carpet in clean black covers the floor, and a nice tight maroon broadcloth headliner hovers above.
A clean and mean 292ci V8 resplendent with its orange paint and shiny trimmings sports an Edelbrock carburetor in 4-barrel form atop. A 4-speed manual top loader tranny is installed as well as a Ford 9-inch rear. Nicely packaged under the hood, nearly ready for Christmas!
Nicely preserved with straight black steel, floorpans and bed frame liner. Suspension is leaf springs all around, new disc brakes in the front, new drum brakes in the rear, and a new rack and pinion steering setup.
No time at all to start after turning the key. This truck ran very nicely, has good power, and sweet handling. Not a stiff truck ride as one would expect, but a great smooth cruiser. The interior is comfortable, and the air blows cold.
This truck is as comfortable as hauling things around the farm, or to construction sites as it is showing up to the country club. It is that nicely finished. A few faults, and a very fair price which the consigner did his research on. All good here in 1964 and 2019.
