1975 Ford F100 Pickup
In 1925 the Ford Motor Company introduced the first "pickup" based
on the Model T Runabout. Ford offered the rear "pickup box"
separately at their dealer parts department for $25.00. The box was
then bolted onto the back of the vehicle as an accessory. Since the
box was "picked up" at the parts department by the customer, the
term "pickup" took hold for this style of vehicle. Later the box
was installed at the factory and evolved into today's pickup
For consignment, a totally restored from frame up Ford F100 short
bed pickup truck. Lots of attention to detail has been paid to this
truck, and the final product shows it. These trucks seem to be very
popular at Classic Auto Mall lately, so it is suggested you show up
sooner rather than later for your chance to have it permanently in
Coral Orange was one choice in the palette of available original
build paints and this truck now has a new coating of it and it
displays beautifully. With clean and shiny metal chromed grille,
and a single round headlight flanking either side this is iconic
design for 70's Ford trucks. Sporting a black painted Mustang hood
scoop, painted stripes starting just behind this scoop, then
carrying on across the hood and diving down on top of the front
quarters where it takes a turn rearwards and runs the belt line
through the bed. This stripe and hood scoop add a nice contrast to
the Coral Orange which shows some chips every now and again, but
mostly nice and new looking. So does the black badging, and black
wall tires, black powder coated steel wheels, and a center
highlighter in a dog dish style chromed hub covering. The bed is
also covered in a black tonneau. On the rear the bumper has been
shaved and this clean line has dual exhaust peeking out from
underneath the tailgate.
Swing open the Coral painted surround doors, and you are
immediately welcomed with nice clean black vinyl door panels
looking like new. New weather stripping is on and all is nice and
tight. Inside we slide on to a black tuck and roll velour
broadcloth bench seat with gray tubs and gray sides in smooth
vinyl. The metal dash matches the exterior and has a black insert
with all the essential gauges all working and very clean. On
drivers left a large tachometer has been bolted on to the dash. The
dash presents just beautifully and has an aftermarket AM/FM/CD
player neatly mounted in below the temp sliders. Black carpeting
for the floors and above is a black vinyl panel inserted within a
Coral paint metal roof frame.
A flip of the hood and you are gazing into a wonderful completely
restored engine bay, which includes a fully rebuilt 302ci V8
cylinder engine, in the correct color I might add. Within its block
is an Edelbrock cam and lifters. On top are more Edelbrock parts
with their intake manifold and 600CFM 4-barrel carburetor and a set
of E-Street aluminum cylinder heads topped off with roller rockers.
Bolted on the back is a FMX 3-speed automatic transmission which
throws power to Ford 9-inch rear axle. MSD ignition, new headers,
new MSD plug wires, and a new Flowmaster exhaust are now
Frame off was the key word used here, and while it was off it was
stripped and repainted. As the truck was re assembled, no expense
was spared as it pertains to quality body mounts and hardware,
suspension rebuild, brake lines and linings, and a like new exhaust
system. The underside will be seen as nice as the topside, and it
makes it abundantly clear that there are absolutely no issues.
Showroom condition underneath.
No fooling around here, this restoration has yielded a beautiful
ride, great acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and really
solid handling. All functionality is working perfectly, and it was
a comfortable cruiser.
For an individual who just enjoys a nostalgic truck cruise in a
truly original looking and correct truck, this could be it. For the
collector who wants to show a beautiful example of the F-100, this
could be it. For the business who may want to use it as a
promotional piece, and attract a lot of eyeballs, this could be it.
Make your way here for a test drive as this could be it! Right out
of the 1975 showroom for your eyes.
