This 1966 Ford F-100 has the look of a classic two-tone, but
everything from the chopped cab to the growling V8 under the hood
says this truck is all about fun and attention.
This truck is set up to showcase why the 4th-gen F-series is a terrific classic. The crease of the sheet metal and the bright trim are the perfect dividing line for the glossy red and white two-tone. Plus, investment is the bumpers and the grille give it that great classic American chrome. But you can also instantly see there's much more going on here than just a vintage presentation. After all, they chopped inches out of the cab's roof. The aggressively forward-leaning stance, full tonneau cover, and bright 17-inch alloys complete this custom street machine package.
Inside is more of the mix of vintage and new. The classic truck interior has some upgrades nicely integrated. In fact, there's even power windows disguised as classic window cranks! You get a comfy cloth bench seat finished in red piping to match the interior trim. As you slip behind the Gran GT sports steering wheel, you'll notice the factory speedometer is flanked by newer auxiliary readouts.
While this truck was born in the beginning of the V8 era, it never received anything as wicked as this. You're looking at a 347 cubic-inch stroker motor that was installed about 5k miles ago. It includes go-fast goodies like GT40 Heads, Keith Black Pistons, Scat crank & rods, E303 roller cam, and DUI distributor. Not only does this make plenty of power, but you also get a terrific growl as headers feed the glasspack-style straight pipe dual exhaust. Because this is built to be a street machine, you also get the right enhancements like the full independent front suspension borrowed from a Torino, power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes.
This is a sly street truck that has all the right upgrades. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!

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.
