29 days ago I listed this vehicle for $12,500.00, some saw it at that price. Today (8/9/2022) I decided to let it go for a firm price of $9,000.00. It has a lot of positives Look at the following Vehicle Description. The worst is that body work has to be done, zoom in on pictures. the worst is the front of hood and front of front fenders, the welders that put it together did not do a smooth job. This gives you all the detail of the vehicle as I know it, you decide if interested.
ENGINE: 351 CID, Windsor 8 cylinder / (From a 1992 Ford Bronco); FUEL: Fuel Injection;
TRANSMISSION: Automatic Over Drive (AOD); (From A 1989 Mustang 5.0 HO) POWER STEERING: Yes, (From Napa Parts – a Volare); BRAKES: Power Brakes REAR END: A Ford Spicer Rear End
Driving the 1955 FORD F100, even though it needs body work and a paint job, I get a lots of thumbs up.
1. It starts up good;
2. The engine sounds good - load;;
3. The brakes work well;
4. Automatic Over Drive transmission works well ; goes into gears but will just need to be adjusted for easier shifting.
5. The all steel body, Some rust area at passenger fender and at guard wall below bed on driver side;. 6. Has a digital cluster, which does not show the accurate miles, see below interior.
BODY: All steel - needs repair; PAINT; needs to be sanded and painted; You may decide to keep it AS IS kind of rat-rod, you still get the looks; I will include a new bumper which you will have to have brackets welded on to bottom area of grill since the whole front end Hood tilts. HOOD: The Whole Front-End TILTS Electrically – easily work on motor. LIGHTS: Main lights work, Left and Right blinkers come on but need to work on getting them to blink. Need to wire brake lights to work.
INTERIOR: Dash cluster, looks like the one Stallone drives in the “Expendables”; I understand to make cluster work better it needs VFD1 - $275
STEERING WHEEL: a newer Tilt steering column; SEAT: Just an old Chevy seat that fits good.
FRAME: Original; Except for Front Clip from a 1976 Plymouth Volare:
TIRES: 20” Custom After Market Rims;
BRAKES: Good working front DISC and rear DRUM brakes.
TEST DRIVE: To be done by owner-based on reasonable test driving.
PAYMENT OPTIONS: CASHIERS CHECK - obtained direct from bank OR Cash - turned in at bank. (Transaction to be completed at bank or via bank – if possible)
1955 Ford F100
To be helpful to inquiries, I decided to compile the additional information to hopefully answer more of the general questions.
The Vehicle Description is all correct based on what I know of the 1955 Ford F100, It starts good, runs and brakes good; and as you can see from the pictures, it could use some body work and paint job, unless you which to keep it looking almost like a barn find rat-rod rough looking.
The reason I decided to sell it, is that I do have 7 cars: 3 family cars and 4 oldies. Our plans of building the big garage are not materializing, so my drive way is crowded. Age is creeping up on me with some physical health issues.
