For Sale: 1961 Ford F100 in Lavergne, Tennessee


Vehicle Description

You know what's out there on the classic truck market, so make sure you take some serious time to look over the details of this very custom 1961 Ford F-100. The amount of time and money that it would take to have just have one of the elements like the amazing paint, custom interior, or the performance built V8 would eat away at your budget past the affordable price that this total custom build can be picked up already for today.

The only way to get paint this amazing is by time intensive labor with a true artist. It's about planning out multiple layers, and understanding what has to be sprayed in the right order so that many different shades of green becomes one cohesive masterpiece. When that's complete, protect it with enough clearcoat that gives this the green flames a show-worthy shine. You're so stunned by the appearance you might forget how rare it is to find a vintage pickup that hasn't been beaten up by decades as a workhorse. But while the paintwork is the first thing you see, it's far from the only custom touch. The bold hood has a custom scoop, the door handles are shaved, and the suspension has been lowered for true custom build appearance. This pickup is so bold it doesn't need chrome in the usual places (that's why the grille and front bumper are painted.) In fact, this one utilizes most of its brightwork on the diamond plating inside the custom truck bed. But just in case people need to see a little extra hot rod shine, this Ford is wearing iconic Cragar wheels.

If you loved the cool custom exterior, you're going to enjoy popping the remote door openers to show off the inside. The same bold green is used inside, and even the flames return on the door panels! Someone spent plenty of time and money planning this design out because the diamond plating continues on the kick panels and on the dash where the power window and AM/FM/CD/aux stereo controls are mounted to tie the whole thing together. This custom pickup provides serious comfort for two with late-model bucket seats and a custom cup holder center console in between. But the best features are reserved for the driver, with a custom green and chrome Lecarra steering wheel, and beyond that there's a full set of gauges, which is another clue to something very special under the hood.

On a build this cool, of course there are matching flames under the hood, too! With this kind of show-stopping appearance in the engine bay, it might be easy to overlook the motor. But that would be a shame, because it's a desirable big block 348 cubic-inch V8. While these were made famous for three-duces, this one goes one step further with a dual-quad setup. Yes, mounted on that performance aluminum intake are dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. The motor is dressed nicely with bright fined aluminum valve covers and a Chevy orange block, and it's even supported by trustworthy components like an aluminum radiator. But you really don't think about that too much, do you? No, because you were already sold on the serious power and the growl coming from the dual exhaust. But for those of you who do actually look at the practical side, you'll enjoy driving this custom pickup, thanks to features like the independent front suspension, power steering, and the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. There's even the added stopping power of four-wheel power disc brakes.

Green is truly the name of the game with this pickup. It will cost you far less greenbacks to pick this one up than if you had it built yourself, so if you don't hurry up, you might just be green with envy. Call now!!
