1972 Ford F-100 Sport Custom

Ford fans, ever fear, e have great old pickups for you as well. Perhaps they worked harder than their Chevy counterparts, r perhaps fewer were built, ut it seems that there are not nearly as many early-70s Fords. Fortunately, e have found this one, hich is an extremely clean '72 F-100 Sport Custom that's clearly had a lot of care over the last 45 years in the warm South.That subtle light blue paint job definitely works on the truck's neatly creased sheetmetal, nd there were plenty of choices that wouldn't have aged this well. With a single repaint a few years ago, t still looks great, ven up close, ith only minor signs of use and age. Still showing some of the '60s detailing but a forward look that would stay with Ford for a generation, his '72 is a neat example of the evolution of the pickup truck. Fit and finish are quite good with straight gaps and a hood that sits right, nd just by how the doors close we know it hasn't been worked hard. Note the bright stainless spear that runs from nose to tail on each side, he molded-in fender flares and rocker panel accents, nd the giant clamshell hood that offers unparalleled access to the engine bay. It all just works together, iving this truck an instantly-identifiable look that will still stand out in a crowd. The argent silver grille is in excellent condition, itting above a brightly chromed bumper, hile out back the bed has been protected by a professional spray-in bedliner and a pair of bed rails that add practicality.The crisp black interior takes the truck a good step forward and away from its working-class roots, nd offers more evidence that this truck has been loved. It's mostly new, ith a fresh seat cover, ew carpets, nd a replacement dash pad, s well as a cool 3-spoke steering wheel that looks just right. The original gauges are in good order, oined by a column-mounted tachometer and a trio of Sunpro gauges under the dash. There's also a new AM/FM radio in the center of the dash, lthough it isn't connected to speakers, etting the next owner decide just how much power he'll need in that regard. Overall, he truck retains its original flavor, ut it feels far younger than its age would suggest.The engine is a bright Ford Blue 390 cubic inch V8, hich we believe to be the truck's original engine, nd the ultra-clean engine bay demonstrates that this is no ordinary work truck. A chrome air cleaner and matching valve covers dress things up a bit and thanks to a 4-barrel carburetor, pgraded camshaft, nd a dual exhaust system, his truck moves more like a Mustang with a bed. It starts quickly and easily, nd settles into a rumbling idle thanks to long-tube headers with Flowmasters underneath, nd pulls hard through all three gears up to highly illegal speeds. Underneath, he chassis and floors are clean, ore evidence that this truck has lived an easy life. A C6 3-speed automatic transmission and 9-inch rear will handle any load you can throw at it, nd handsome slotted and polished aluminum wheels give it a sporty demeanor. Four fresh 255/70/15 BFGoodrich white-letter radials have been fitted as well, aking this a truck that you can use and enjoy immediately.Just a very clean Ford truck with a super click look, ith the added bonus of big block power.
