1970 Ford F-100. This truck has been in our family for 50 years. My Dad purchased it in the Fall of 1969. I inherited it from him in 2016. He was a Master Mechanic and kept up all the maintenance on the truck himself. It has a 302 V-8 with automatic transmission. Rear wheel drive. Original engine and transmission. Engine runs good. 91,348 original miles odometer has not turned over. 4 new tires with original wheels. Two original hub caps. It has the long bed box body. All original equipment on the truck except side mirrors and camper shell which can be removed. Truck is very clean has never been driven in salt or snow. It was kept under a metal car port for a lot of its life. In later years my Dad brush painted the outside and spray painted the truck bed and some hub caps. It is ready to roll.
Otherwise it looks good. All that is needed to restore this truck is a good paint job to the outside and truck bed

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.
When it comes to vintage American motorcycles, there’s not much cooler than a full-fendered 1947 Indian Chief attached to a full-fendered Indian sidecar. The Pick of the Day is a “Sidecar Chief” in apparently immaculate condition, with matching numbers and coming out of long-term ownership by a committed rider who “sourced and loved and restored […]
