If you love a true truck with a true workman vibe, then this
V8-powered 1971 Ford F-100 is going to really please. It's a
classic long bed with a farm truck attitude. So it has a cool mix
of preservation and upgrades when needed. And while that's an
attractive package for the right kind of person, the value price is
appealing for everyone.
The factory-correct Bahama Blue with Wimbledon White roof has a
great sense of style. It was resprayed a few decades ago, and the
result is a worn-in style that still retains a nice overall shine.
And that's attractive on a truck that's as honest as a hard day's
work. The same attitude of clean, complete, but with the right age
goes for the details. You see it in the factory wheel covers,
grille, and full-length trim that loves to show off the length of
the bed. And this really does have a nice attitude of getting to
work. Trailering mirrors, a rear step bumper, newer bed paint, and
full-length tie-down rails are all part of what makes a real truck
The interior gets the attitude right. Items like the door panels
and seat cover aren't likely to survive a half-century, and so they
have been refinished in a comfy velour. The steering wheel and
gauges remain original, because in a truck with history, you really
want to be able to feel the workmen who have come before you. There
are fun details, like the working dome light and the Philco AM
radio that's still there for display. This even appears to be a
factory A/C truck (the major components are in place, but it will
need servicing to function again.)
The Ford's 360 cubic-inch V8 is a terrific motor, and this one has
the same look of honesty we've seen through the rest of this truck.
And just like the rest of this pickup, it's received the right
care. So it has a lifetime of good servicing, and even features a
remanufactured Motorcraft carburetor with electric choke. It makes
for a truck that starts easily, idles nicely, and shifts smoothly
on the three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, power steering and
power brakes keep it a good cruiser.
This truck is a fantasy about honesty, including the honest price.
So if you're trying to capture the classic farm truck vibe, this
Ford is ready to by your Sunday driver. Call today!!!
