Turquoise 1965 Ford F-100
I AM 51 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR!
**Willing to negotiate with SERIOUS buyers ONLY**
I was “born” in Dallas, TX at the Ford plant in 1965 and was owned by one person until 1981.
In 1981 I went to live in Kentucky with a man who owned a Rolls Royce dealership. He took very good care of me and began keeping records of all my maintenance. Today, my owner has all of my maintenance records going back to 1981.
In 2010, I went to live with a new owner in Gettysburg, PA. My new owner made sure that I was always taken care of and anytime I needed something, he would use NOS (new old stock) parts every chance he could. Like my prior owner, he kept me all original.
In 2014, my Gettysburg owner decided he wanted a 1941 Indian motorcycle more than he wanted me so, we broke up.
Today, I am back home in Texas and live just outside of Dallas in Terrell.
I have all of my original paint with some "patina", too. I'm not completely perfect, but darn near!! My interior and upholstery are all original and in STELLAR condition. I have an 8 ft. bed (an upgrade at the time), a 352 V8 engine (1965 was the first year for this engine) and my original AM radio and speaker (also an upgrade at the time) work great. I have my original gas cap (these often get lost) and my lighter works, too. I have a standard transmission with 3 on the tree. I do NOT have power steering or power brakes.
In 2014 I got 5 brand new Coker bias-ply radial tires. They are fabulous. Recently, my 51 year old exhaust system was replaced. It was hand forged to fit me just right, but is exactly like my original system. Also, I have had the driver’s side of my manifold replaced. Neither of these items were numbered.
I often go to car/truck shows and have won several trophies and plaques (these come with me - I'm proud of them). I have even been invited to be in 2 movies, but could never make the schedule work. I have been in Christmas parades and Homecoming parades as well. I still feel like a teenager and my original, low mileage reflects it. Like my owner says, “You’re only original once”. I’m a much loved survivor and every person in my path has loved me and taken really good care of me. I have spent very little time exposed to the elements. I'm a truly special, unmolested piece of history. For all the purists out there, I'm what you're looking for.
I come with a box of old maintenance books, original paint chips and an ENTIRE EXTRA BOLT OF INTERIOR NOS FABRIC. My interior is beautiful, but I come with enough to be re-upholstered if ever needed.
It looks like my very first owner put farm mirrors on me. It think my second owner did not like them and removed them and put the smaller side mirrors on (which would have also been accurate for my production year and an available option).
I am not "paid for" so if you want to buy me, you will need to send a cashier's check to the bank/lien holder. We'll work it out.
My owner has been buying and selling on EBay for a VERY long time and her reputation is extremely important to her.
