This 1966 Ford F100 Custom Cab is a two owner truck that has lived a rust free privileged life. The truck was a two owner South Carolina truck since new and has undergone a frame on restoration.
The body of the truck was stripped to bare metal, and the undercarriage still has the original Ford red oxide primer in place. It’s crazy solid and has never had any nasty undercoating applied. All of the trim and chrome has been redone and are in mint condition. The glass is in excellent condition, all the rubber is new, and the paint has been properly sanded out to a quality finish. The doors and hood have nice gapping and shut lines.
The 352 engine has been rebuilt as has the rear end and 3-speed transmission. The motor makes wonderful, smooth power and starts immediately falling into a steady idle. All of the lights and gauges work properly, as does the radio. The truck is an excellent driving vehicle and can be used with confidence around town and is geared for highway use as well.
For the Ford enthusiast looking for a solid original truck that’s also undergone a nice restoration, this F100 has the quality you desire.

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.
