This 1965 Ford F-100 is at a crossroads. Its original-style
presentation and classic inline-six make it a great period-correct
pickup. But at this value price there's also plenty left in the
budget to use this as a foundation for a great custom. And as you
read all the details, the desire only grows. So you can't go wrong
with any of your plans for this pickup.
Like any good workman truck, the Fords of this era were not trying
to be too showy, but a custom cab has just the right amount of
added panache. The sleek flairside body and full-length trim strip
highlights the straightness of the panels and the overall sleekness
of the truck. The design came straight from the factory with a hint
of sporty style in the hood design and flared fenders. So the
15-inch mag-style wheels just seem like an appropriate upgrade. But
nothing on this truck is too overdone. The white bumpers are true
old school, and the factory-correct black paint has a classic
lacquer finish with a touch of well-earned aging. It all makes for
a look that is pure vintage.
Inside is more of the true classic feeing with the factory-correct
red interior. This comes from the true old-school truck era where
you got an artful steering wheel and a nice gauge panel. The best
upgrades you wanted were the working heater, and this one even has
an oil pressure gauge to let you keep a better eye on the engine.
There is room for improvement, and the budget price really gives
you more options. But the idea here is to let you choose how you
want to customize your pickup, if at all. Because for some if us,
there's an even larger appeal to something so authentic that even
the correct AM radio is still there for display.
When you open the hood, the dark engine bay really funnels your
attention to the bold blue block in the middle. This long motor has
the unmistakable look of Ford's 240 cubic-inch inline six. We all
know plenty of V8s fit in her with ease, but we like the fact that
this already has a well-maintained version of a 1965 block. This
one starts easy and idles nicely. Plus, the inline nature made
these all-around smooth runners. So it makes for an ideal setup
when you want a classic cruiser. And the feeling of a
column-shifted three-speed manual transmission only adds to the
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and owner's
manual. This F-100 has a ton of vintage charm, especially for this
value price. Call now!
