The glossy paint, leather interior, and a quality overall
presentation makes this 1966 Ford F-100 instantly attractive. Of
course, it's that strong-running big V8 under the hood that really
makes this one irresistible.
The burgundy paint is an awesome color we all like because of the
red boldness mixed with dark hue. The consignor claims this truck
was restored only about 5k miles ago, and the shine of the
clearcoat luster really shows a commitment to care. It's this same
deep gloss that also highlights some of our favorite parts of the
classic sheetmetal, including the sporty flared fenders and power
dome hood. It has great classic details, like the vintage Ford V8
emblem, chrome bumpers, and the full-length trim that really shows
off the quality of the panels. More than just a well-done classic,
the hint of forward-leaning nice stance, raised white letter tires,
and an aerodynamic tonneau cover are all the right hints that this
looker is a muscle truck, too.
The interior keeps a proper pickup attitude while also making some
investments in worthwhile upgrades. For example, you get the
classic style bench seat, but now it's finished in a supple
leather. Good carpeting, nice door panels, and a smooth dash
complete a quality look and feel. You'll also appreciate the
upgraded driving music of an AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod input, USB
charger and upgraded speakers. The classic Ford steering wheel has
been refinished in a coordinating burgundy, and the machine-turned
panel is a bright way to present the factory gauges. But the large
oil pressure and tach readouts on the steering column are a clear
indication of something special under the hood.
You'll immediately spot your favorite upgrade the moment you see
the engine bay. That 390 cubic-inch V8 looks great with shining
components and tidy wires/hoses all calling attention to this
powerhouse. This big V8 also has the right go-fast goodies like a
Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers. Plus,
you have the right supporting components like the Optima red top
battery, MSD Plug wires, electric choke, and aluminum radiator.
It's the kind of total package that fires up with confidence as it
also makes a terrific rumble out of the dual exhaust. The C6
three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that feeds the
Ford 9-inch rear end. And this is a solid all-around driver with
power steering, power brakes, and upgraded front discs.
Slick, powerful, and absolutely memorable - this is the truck
you've always wanted. So don't let end up in someone else's garage.
