1964 F100 150 Series, made in the USA. Engine is 292 V8 Y Block with 160 HP. Transmission is 4 speed T98 1-R. Rear end is Dana 60-2. All original miles (57,189).
Truck History: Came from North Dakota 18 years ago. Mostly kept in a garage since new; never a work truck. All original stock from the factory. Numbers from the motor match the frame. No restoration; only new paint 18 years ago in the original colour.
1964 was the best year; no unibody, last year of the straight axle front end, and last year that the 292 Y Block was made (forged crank shaft, and the best motor made only from '54-'64). T98 trans is the best transmission, and Dana 60-2 is the best with tough and strong rear-end gears. Enamel paint just like was used in the factory in '64.
Oil used: 15-40 oil with zinc and high quality additives (Duralube, Rislone).
Gas used: 94 octane, no ethanol. Lead substitute added.
This truck looks new just like it was 1964. All original, excellent condition, and never in an accident. This truck runs perfectly and will go anywhere anytime. Great for a daily driver and also for long distance.

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.
