True custom classic cruising pickups like this are not supposed to
be so affordable. But this 1965 Ford F-100 Fleetside is the real
deal, and you can see it in all the investments - right down to the
custom and powerful 352ci V8.
You know you won't have to tell anyone this is a custom machine, but as you dig into the details, you being to realize how well this integrated vintage and upgrades onto one truck. For example, this began life as a true black pickup. It benefits from the extra gloss of a professional respray later in life, but we all love a classic Ford in correct code-A Raven Black. And even before the custom silver and blue metallic flames were added, this was already shining bright. After all, the bright chrome front end is part of the classic '60s style, and the Custom Cab's full-length trim is pure vintage charm. And speaking of the side trim, don't you just love how the red inserts match the classic-style red wheels? With their smoothie hub caps and wide whitewall tires, this has a true California custom look. But even with all these upgrades, it's still a true truck at its heart. That's why you have trailering mirrors and a trailer ball on the heavy-duty rear bumpers. Plus, there's a spray-in bedliner beneath the soft tonneau cover so that you can take full advantage of this long bed classic.
The custom black, red, and chrome theme continues inside, too. The bench seat, steering column, carpeting, and dash all have a nice custom appearance. And people will absolutely marvel at the flame-kissed custom door panels. More than just look great, this is also a comfortable place to really spend some time thanks to upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo w/subwoofer and provisions for R134a air conditioning. Plus, with the grippy sports steering wheel, auxiliary gauge trio, and column-mounted tach, you know there' something special under the hood.
The engine bay is dressed to impress. The red-ribbed valve covers coordinate nicely with the etched air topper that announces this 352 cubic-inch V8. And with plenty of extra polished pieces and the red insulated wires all within the black engine bay, this one continues the color theme seen inside and out. More than just look great, this V8 has performance upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust with glasspacks. And a custom classic like this is also a fine cruiser. That's why you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
You can tell it takes a solid investment to create a custom pickup like this, but we also have the build receipts and maintenance records to prove it. Rarely is something that's this unique is also so obtainable, so hurry up before it's gone. Call today!!!

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.
