If you love a true truck with a true workman vibe, then this V8-powered 1971 Ford F-100 is going to really please. It's a classic long bed with a farm truck attitude. So it has a cool mix of preservation and upgrades when needed. And while that's an attractive package for the right kind of person, the value price is appealing for everyone.
The factory-correct Bahama Blue with Wimbledon White roof has a great sense of style. It was resprayed a few decades ago, and the result is a worn-in style that still retains a nice overall shine. And that's attractive on a truck that's as honest as a hard day's work. The same attitude of clean, complete, but with the right age goes for the details. You see it in the factory wheel covers, grille, and full-length trim that loves to show off the length of the bed. And this really does have a nice attitude of getting to work. Trailering mirrors, a rear step bumper, newer bed paint, and full-length tie-down rails are all part of what makes a real truck great.
The interior gets the attitude right. Items like the door panels and seat cover aren't likely to survive a half-century, and so they have been refinished in a comfy velour. The steering wheel and gauges remain original, because in a truck with history, you really want to be able to feel the workmen who have come before you. There are fun details, like the working dome light and the Philco AM radio that's still there for display. This even appears to be a factory A/C truck (the major components are in place, but it will need servicing to function again.)
The Ford's 360 cubic-inch V8 is a terrific motor, and this one has the same look of honesty we've seen through the rest of this truck. And just like the rest of this pickup, it's received the right care. So it has a lifetime of good servicing, and even features a remanufactured Motorcraft carburetor with electric choke. It makes for a truck that starts easily, idles nicely, and shifts smoothly on the three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, power steering and power brakes keep it a good cruiser.
This truck is a fantasy about honesty, including the honest price. So if you're trying to capture the classic farm truck vibe, this Ford is ready to by your Sunday driver. Call today!!!
