1973 Ford F-100

Too many projects and too few parking spaces so the F100 has to go!
This 1973 Ford F100 Custom has a desirable combination of options:
  • 302 CI small block V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor
  • C4 automatic transmission
  • Rear wheel drive
  • Standard cab, hort bed (6.5 foot bed)
  • Power steering
  • Working factory air conditioning and heat
  • Dual exhaust
  • 2.75 rear axle (Ford 9") - not original ratio to the truck, t originally came with a shorter gear
It has an older decent quality repaint that is showing its age, ut still looks great. There are a few spots of corrosion showing here and there and in the typical horizontal line on the tailgate. They haven't changed since 2 years ago. I was planning to touch these up, ut did not want to misrepresent the truck in any way so I will leave that to the new owner. Mileage is unknown due to the 5 digit odometer and incorrect speedometer gear in the transmission when I bought it. I suspect it is between 100k and 200k.
Drives down the road nice and straight, s good as any Twin-I-Beam Ford I've ever driven. Due to the gearing, t will cruise down the highway at 70 mph comfortably (aside from the wind noise). It's not a show truck, ut it presents well. Not so perfect you can't use it as a truck, ut a good combination of options in very good condition that would be a great base for a restoration or drive and enjoy as is. I've done a lot of work to make this truck dependable - I daily drove this truck from the end of September until the end of December and had no major issues. It does leak a bit from the engine, ransmission, nd rear axle, ut everything works great. Has a AM mono radio that works, peaker is blown but it will be replaced by the end of the auction. The fuel gauge does not work and I have pinpointed it to the gauge itself. I've seen replacements on eBay for around $20, ut haven't replaced yet as I've been calculating fuel left from the odometer.
