With its glossy red paint, custom two-tone interior, and original large V8 under the hood, this 1966 Ford F-100 is the kind of classic that offers far more than its value price would suggest.
Like any good workman truck, the Fords of this era were not trying to be too showy, but this Custom Cab has just the right amount of added panache. Chrome bumpers, a hint of a cowl hood, and the sleek flair side style give this instant vintage appeal. Plus, the full-length white trim strip really stands out nicely against the resprayed factory-correct Rangoon Red paint. The same goes for the factory wheel covers. But some of the great-looking pieces also help this remain function pickup. After all, those bed rails attract attention, and when combined with the red liner paint in the bed, this is the affordable classic that's also your friend for weekend chores.
The red with white trim theme is continued inside, and black is also added for distinction. You'll love showing off the bench that has custom piping and comfortable cloth inserts for the driver and passenger. There's also an upgrade to an AM/FM/cassette radio, but everything else is pure '60s nostalgia. You'll grab the classic Ford three-spoke steering wheel, and just ahead of that are the original gauges in a machine-turned surround. Below that, the original instruments are still in place and are fully functional, right down to the hear/defrost controls. So this pickup provides the perfect vintage atmosphere.
Under the hood is an exceptionally honest looking 352 cubic-inch V8. According to the consignor, this is the original motor to the truck, and it certainly looks the part. More than just the originality, you'll love this because the Y-code motor was the largest offered by Ford that year. With this kind of power and torque at the ready, it's great to see a trailer hitch attachment to this truck. But even if you don't do any hauling, the well-matched gears in the three-speed manual transmission keeps up with traffic quite nicely. Plus, Ford's twin I-beam front suspension, an upgraded aluminum radiator, and modern Hankook tires make this versatile classic a fine cruiser.
