Let's go fishing in this classic, unmodified 1970 Ford F-100 Sport
Custom short wheelbase pickup! Sometimes, when you find something
as nice as this pickup, the best thing to do is leave it alone!
Sure, the truck has benefited from a meticulous repaint and professional upholstery job, but the work was done to get it back to original factory conditions. Photos were taken of the whole process, and they document the care and quality of the work on this virtually rust-free Southern pickup. All the exterior chrome trim was pulled, and a single small 3" x 5" patch of surface rust was cut out and replaced with metal. Fresh Wimbledon White and New Lime grace this great truck once again. The interior has been nicely tailored in the original medium green, just like back in the day.
Notice the original stance, the 15" wheels with white wall tires and deluxe wheel covers-it wasn't broken, there's nothing to fix. Leave it and love it! Powered by the original 302 V8, a superb Ford motor by all acounts, with your foot working the pedal, the dual exhaust makes you the conductor at a symphony. The manual transmission shifts three-on-the-tree, practically a security device these days!
This is a very solid, original Ford truck, with authentic touches like the markings from the factory still scrawled across the underside of the hood. If you have great memories with your dad or granddad in a truck like this, this is your chance to create and share more great memories with the next generation. Call Art & Speed at (901) 850-0507. Don't just catch fish, make memories fishing!

Pick of the Day is a like-new Ford F100
Purchased from grandfather, vintage pickup finally is heading to a well-deserved retirement
Brothers like to build, and now there’s a dad-and-daughter project in the works, too
Hand-me-down from uncle to nephew is in original and running condition
The yellow-and-maroon paint scheme may not be to everyone’s liking, but the seller of the Pick of the Day, a 1956 Ford F-100, notes that the pickup is a “very original” fat-fender example
My oldest son, Rob, and I purchased an old farm truck that had almost as much rust as it did clean metal.
Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
