If you're a truck fan, you literally have thousands of choices. You can choose something like everyone else, or you can go a little off the beaten path with this 1965 Ford F100. This is one of those trucks that gets everything right, from the burly 352 to the shiny green metallic paint to a load of comfort and convenience items.
First of all, this truck looks great. The regular cab/long bed combination was rather popular back in the day, and it remains the one to own if you're looking for a fun truck that can double as a work truck. Ford took a conservative path with their F-100, but between the shiny gray-green paint and some well-chosen brightwork, it has a very detailed look. The paint was refinished a few years ago and still looks very good, not perfect, but nice enough to get appreciative second-glances on the road and show proudly on weekends. The shiny chrome grille dresses it up and experts will appreciate the custom look, and that long strip of stainless running down the side is in fantastic condition. The bed is finished with a spray-in bedliner and a heavy-duty rubber mat, and shiny new bumpers at both ends remind you that this isn't some work truck that was beaten to within an inch of its life.
That serious black interior is fairly recent and looks very much the way the factory might have done it. Heavy-duty vinyl keeps an OEM look but elevates this truck above its siblings, and has been fitted with matching door panels, new floor coverings, and a fresh headliner, all of which contribute to the fresh feel. Factory gauges in that simple instrument panel should look familiar to anyone who has driven an early '60s Ford, and a pair of auxiliary dials provide a more complete view of the engine. A stock 3-spoke steering wheel give you plenty of leverage on the tires and looks great, really dressing up the cab. A factory AM head unit remains in the dash and that Hurst shifter is linked to the 3-speed manual transmission underneath, but it looks like it belongs there, which is a nice touch.
With a big 352 cubic inch V8 under the hood of this relatively lightweight pickup, performance is lively. Whether it's blasting from red light to red light or hitting the road for a cross-country trip, this powertrain in this truck delivers. Ford Blue paint, some chrome dress-up, and a mostly OEM look mean that you can treat this truck as more than just a workhorse. A fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds suitably muscular for the look and terminates in a set of chrome angle-cut tips just visible under the rear bumper. Handsome 15-inch aluminum wheels lend the truck a sporty demeanor and are fitted with beefy 275/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials that fill the wheel wells perfectly.
Not like all the others, this F-100 is a really nice truck that'll surprise more than a few performance car owners and is still happy to put in a hard day's work. Call today.
