Engine: 5.2L 318ci V8 SD OHV Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic 4WD Mileage: 62423 Believed Original Miles VIN: F10JK410643 Exterior Color: Corinthian White & Raven Black Black Interior Color: Black & Red with Corinthian White Trim Vinyl '85 Dodge RAM W-150 Powertrain AM/FM Stereo Radio Recent Full Restoration In the coming years, you’re going to be seeing a lot more trucks like this 1963 Ford F-100 showing up at events. The reason is that these kinds of vehicles represent an easy way to have V8 power and four-wheel-drive, not to mention a significant part of automotive history, all for a very affordable price. But they’re scarce, so good ones like this will not be common without big injections of cash, so perhaps now is the time to buy. With a paint job that matches the style, this Raven Black and Corinthian White pickup has a quality old-school look that's both attractive and rugged. It's not full of metallic like modern paint, so it has an authenticity that many restorations lack, and while there's some age and use on it, it will still grab everyone's attention out on the road. Perhaps it worked for a living in the past, but judging by the overall look, it has probably been a favorite hobby vehicle for many years, getting regular baths and wax jobs on weekends. Panel gaps are good and the seams line up well, and all the chrome and stainless trim is in bright condition. The bed has a well-protected wood finish that will look good for years Ford has always had quality powertrains but this truck has been fitted with a 1985 Dodge Ram W-150 powertrain. The 5.2L 318ci V8 matched with the 3-speed automatic and four-wheel drive helps to make this truck a workhorse year-round. Our team tested all of the mechanicals and test drove this truck and found no issues. The F100 drives and looks show quality. Call or email us with any questions!

Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
