F-100 1961

Title Status --
Exterior Color Midnight Gray
Interior Color Red


A truck like this F-100 is rare and desirable for its unibody setup. But what really makes this one award-worthy is a fresh restoration that added awesome paint, a custom interior, cold A/C, an upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and fuel-injected LS6 power. It makes for the kind of restomod most of us can only dream about.

This has all the best unique pieces of its era. It's a rare unibody configuration that was offered for the first few years of the fourth-gen F-Series. And the big back window gives you wraparound rear glass and plenty of stylish trim. But it's likely not just the classic details that are commanding your attention. You can instantly understand that this is a more modern custom from the moment you see the Midnight Gray paint. It's the kind of color you'd ask for on a new BMW, and so it gives this classic pickup a unique and premium distinction. And since the full restoration was only completed within the last few months, the professional application has a clean and smooth style that loves to show off the sheet metal of the unibody. Sleeker deleted badging, wide side exhaust tips, the lowered stance, and extra meaty rear tires make for quite a sporty machine. Plus, there's a cool/custom brightness from the crystal clear headlights, special 1966-chrome front end, form-hugging front bumpers, and a rear one adapted from an Impala. And the American racing wheels really bring the whole package together. They are done in a classic Challenger style; there's a larger 17-inch size for modern tires; and there's a terrific polish to go with the chrome.

The bold red inside continues the BMW-level feeling. You have a fresh bench seat with sporty pleating, and the door panels were done to match. The plush carpeting, complete headliner, and smooth dash pad deliver a uniform red style. And the big back window lets in more light to let it all radiate. This has all the right features you want, including cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, and an AM/FM/XM stereo with Bluetooth. This is a true driver's truck with a wood and chrome sports steering wheel, a tilt column, a billet shifter handle, and crisp Omega Kustoms gauges set in a carbon fiber style panel.

While we've made a few BMW references for this truck, the engine bay shows off a pure Corvette powerhouse. This is a 5.7-liter LS6 motor. This is the same kind of fuel-injected V8 that made the C5 Corvette Z06 such a legend. And this one is worth showing off with details like the ultra-clean inner fenders, tucked wires, and hydro-dipped intake. As you look underneath, you can see that the full build has a fresh style, including the undercarriage. There you can also spot the upgraded independent front end and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. Add in a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, rack & pinion power steering, a limited-slip rear end, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this sharp-looking restomod is a great all-around driver.

This is an award-worthy truck that's also great to drive near or far. So if you demand the best of everything, you need this fresh build of a distinct unibody pickup in your garage. Call today!!!
