800 Derita Road, Ste. A
So did you start looking at this 1970 Ford F-100 because it's a vintage pickup with a powerful V8 and A/C? Nope. We know you love this because the tough-as-nails image of the Dearborn steel is being amplified by its custom slick/sinister appearance.
Trucks from this era are always a great part of nostalgia because they remind us of a hard day's work. So when you combine it with a big investment in the full bright red treatment, this Ford looks like it apprenticed with the devil. Forget the nice guy classic pickups with the chrome and wood trim; this F-100 makes a very different and intimidating statement on arrival. The brightwork has been silenced on the body with the trim expertly deleted, the front bumper painted to match, and a form-fitting roll pan in the rear. This is still a classic American, and so you get a nice kick of flair on the wheels. Of course, those polished American Racing Salt Flat Specials highlight the lowered suspension and only add to this truck's aggression. The black grille surround is the perfect way to break up the red, and the liner paint in the bed adds to the dark side while also adding function to this classic truck.
The black and red theme continues on the fresh interior. They made a nice investment here, and you can see it in the details like the red seatbelts against the black bench. There are cool additions here like the black and chrome steering wheel, tilt column, well-integrated VDO aux gauges, and a tall Lokar shifter. But the coolest upgrades of them all is the ice-cold R134a air conditioning. So while we may make devilish references about this truck, you won't feel as hot as the underworld in the cab.
Under the hood is equal parts tidy and hardy thanks to liner paint throughout the engine bay. In the center of this are fresh and bright components. But more than just looks good, you want this truck because it has a powerful 302 cubic-inch V8 from Blue Print Engines. Plus, you got the right performance upgrades like the Edelbrock 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and headers feeding the Thrush dual exhaust. But don't just listen to the rumble of the dual exhaust; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see one of the cleanest suspension around protected by a hammered finish. Plus, there are all the right newer components, including urethane bushings. So this one feels quite nice going down the road. In fact, the fortified TCI three-speed automatic knows how to handle this power while also offering crisp shifts. Plus, front disc brakes and modern performance tires finish off a great cruising package.
This truck might look and sound like the devil, but it's angel for the person behind the wheel. Call now!
