If all you did was look at the two-tone paint on this 1963 Ford F-100, then you would just think this is a cool classic. But there are plenty of other hints that tell you this is really a restomod with a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and a fuel-injected V8 heart.
Gray and white is a great classic two-tone. It lets the classic lines of this 4th gen F-Series really show. But as you're looking over the truck, it instantly is apparent this is far more than just vintage fun. Nothing about this package screams overzealous modifications, but instead, it's a lot of little things that add up to a big difference. For example, there's a matte finish in the paint as well as a sliver color in the bumper and grille. It gives this a bit more of a modern tone. The wheels are a set of steel units painted white to match the truck. That would seem like a pure vintage piece, except the larger 17-inch size lets you fit modern tires, and it sits on a sporty lowered stance. There's liner paint in the truck bed, deleted rear bumper, and a full red, white & blue pinstripe package encircling the truck and separating the two-tone. It all shows that this pickup's personality is in the details.
The interior is more obvious with its upgrades. After all, you never got high-back bucket seat in '63. These are finished in supple leather, have integrated shoulder belts, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. There are some nice upgrades like an armrest center console, cup holders, an AM/FM stereo with USB input, and the beginning provisions for air conditioning (it requires more components for a full install.) This makes for a great driver's pickup with a sports steering wheel, tilt column, and updated Ford gauge pack with speedo and tach. And the safety switch start panel is pure racecar cool.
The dark and clean engine bay funnels your attention to the motor in the middle. And we all know that distinct intake means this was upgraded with Ford's 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8. There's even an upgraded aluminum radiator to help keep it running cool. While that's a great power package, your favorite mechanical part may just be in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see this was built with a Crown Vic front end and a Lincoln Mark VIII rear. Oh yes, this truck has a fully independent suspension! The custom build also features power steering, performance tires, and four-wheel disc brakes. There's even a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. So this classic is really one of the most comfortable vehicles to drive near or far.
This is a cool custom pickup that would cost a ton of time/money/effort to replicate. That's why you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
