This 1969 Ford F-100 Ranger has a ton of vintage appeal with an almost time capsule appearance. But there have also been the right key investments - including in the V8 power - to make sure it remains a solid cruiser.
The factory-correct Boxwood Green has the right earth-tone style to represent its era correctly. And this even shows all the right signs of being the factory application. It looks clean and complete with just the right amount of age and wear so that people can see the originality. And the overall impression is like you got your grandfather's respected long bed farm truck. You know the one that he took meticulous care of to make sure that bumpers were shining, all the hubcaps stayed in place, and the premium Ranger full-length trim is present - right down to the tri-color badge on the rear.
The interior continues the very vintage style. The door panels, carpeting, and dash pad look exceptionally preserved. It also looks like the bench seat was updated within the last few years, but they made sure to get the style correct, right down to the insignia trim in the seatback. And the details are great with the smooth wood-like trim, dome light that greets you when the door opens, and AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. So it's the ideal vintage atmosphere to grab the thin/grippy steering wheel and column-mounted shifter.
An authentic style means this one still carries the correct displacement of a 360 cubic-inch V8. But the way the big blue motor radiates in the dark engine bay tells you there have been plenty of recent investments here. This reseal/refresh means newer components and a particularly strong-running nature. And the power steering and power brakes make it an easy cruiser. This has a true vintage attitude, right down to the three-on-the-tree manual transmission. But one upgrade that's easy to spot is the dual exhaust, and while it may not be stock, the tune it has is absolutely worth the update.
The sale comes complete with the original title to help tell this unique classic's story. So if you love a true vintage pickup that also loves to be driven, call today!
