Available for sale now at Gateway Classic Cars - Houston is a 1965 Ford F100 Pickup truck. Ford introduced a dramatically new style of pickup in 1961 with the fourth-generation F-Series. Longer and lower than its predecessors, these trucks had increased dimensions and new engine and gearbox choices. In 1965, the F-Series was given a significant mid-cycle redesign. A completely new platform, including the Twin-I-Beam front suspension. This truck has an extremely clean body with a frame off restoration that brought the paint back to life. Floor pans and the cab mounts were also recently replaced. The truck has a 352 CID V8 matched to a 3-speed steering column shifter, also known as a "3 on the tree" shifter which adds to the uniqueness of this vehicle. The interior has also been redone with a very modern and clean look. Brand new painted dash & painted metal door panels with the suede seats & headliner all add up to a very top notch look. The truck is an excellent example of a labor of love restoration that will truly satisfy the new owner. Additional build documentation is available to the new owner during the purchasing process. For more information call the Houston showroom at 832-243-6220.
