1969 Ford F100 Pickup
The phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is often used to explain a certain simple, middle-America wisdom that folks in the Heartland of this country are said to embrace. What is not often heard is the second half of that adage that admonishes, "And if it is broke, you have to fix it better than it was.". That part of the philosophy is the one those gentle country folks don't talk too much about.
For consignment, a 1969 F100 pickup with nice straight rust free steel, two tone shiny chrome and a 390ci V8. All as a result of a frame off restoration around 2016. Added AC for the broadcloth enveloped cab, all original dash, and clean Rhino lined bed, this is a looker and has the potential to haul all your goods. Also a vintage wheel and tire package as well as a color matching dealer ordered cooler and many parts go with this truck.
Retired from hauling duty and fully restored this truck has no rust, straight panels and a few areas of paint scratches and surface markings, but it is from wholesome use. It is bathed in Boxwood Green for the uppers, hood and bed edges, and Wimbledon White for the lowers and roofline. Nice trim runs the length of the truck and it's on the midline as well the rockers and wheel well surrounds. A well preserved front grille and bumper are leading the way. Bringing up the rear is another nice bumper and a Ford logo embossed in the all green tailgate. Chrome tipped 2.5-inch exhaust tips peek out from below. The bed remains nice with its Rhino lined flooring and nicely chromed exterior mirrors hanging from either door. 15-inch chromed rimmed and center dog dish wheels are wrapped by black wall tires in 255/60R15 format.
Climbing past nice door panels with a black central panel and horizontal wood appliqu© running through and a beautiful thin chrome surrounding the black we enter the fully restored interior. We climb into the vertical tuck and roll broadcloth insert bench seat in dark gray with smooth black vinyl bolsters. This bench is very nice with no tears or even wear showing. A look to the dash, and we note a factory design gauge panel with a horizontal speedo in the center of a chrome trimmed elongated oval that is peppered with wood appliqu© trim. The remainder of the dash front is also in steel painted in the Boxwood Green. A nAM/FM radio is in and just below some Vintage AC is hanging from the bottom. The dash top is crack free padded black vinyl. Black carpet in good condition floods the floor. Above a new black plastic panel makes up the headliner.
A 390ci V8 resides in the cavernous engine bay which powers a C6 3-speed automatic transmission with the help of a 4-barrel carburetor. A Ford 9-inch 3.25 geared rear puts power to the blacktop.
This truck shows very well underneath with nary a hint of surface rust on the frame and suspension components. Dual exhaust with glasspack style mufflers expel burnt fossils to the rear of the truck. Power front disc brakes work in conjunction with rear power drums for the stopping of this big rig. A twin I-beam and coil spring front suspension gives a nice ride and for the rear we see traditional leaf springs. Nice and tidy would describe the undercarriage best.
A quick starter, and smooth idler, a tickle of the gas pedal and we're off! This truck runs very nicely, shifts smoothly, corners nicely, and has a fairly smooth ride. The interior is comfortable, which is to be expected because Ford had the theory that their trucks were workers on the outside, but car-like interiors would rule. All functions save for the windshield washers, reverse lights and AXc were working during our drive and the note of the big V8 delivers the goods. A small oil leak is noted at the back of the oil pan, but it's minor.
An eye-catching example of the F-100, very good condition, and it's a truck that can show as well as work. No trailer queen here, just a worker in classic form. Well running, and snazzy looking, and all rust free. Right here at Classic Auto Mall y'-all! Start the bidding, and grab a beer from that color matching cooler.
