I specialize in locating 1967-1972 Ford pickups here in dry southern Idaho, as well as neighboring dry climate states including Eastern Washington/Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Wyoming. I give them some tender loving care, and then bring them to a national market where you can find an affordable dry-climate rig. This is a very rust free truck, with exception of the items I'll detail momentarily. I'm quite familiar with these trucks, and know exactly what to look for in potential problem areas. Also, I am familiar with shipping these trucks all across the USA, coast to coast. I can assist in locating a reputable carrier for your transport, and thus I encourage long distance bidders. Iwill personally see that your questions and inquiries result in a satisfying purchase!I'll make every effort to take extra photos, or respond to any and all questions. So don't hesitate toinquire before bidding!! ALSO see my other listings!

Since we'veacquiredthis pickup, we've had the opportunity to drive it from Eastern Washington, to Boise Idaho, a 500-mile road-trip. We always like to get a few miles on these trucks, allowing us to get to know each truckintimately.. the good and the bad. We don't want there to be anysurpriseswhen you purchase this classic.
A routine tune-up, oil change,carburetorrebuild, new vacuumlines, and other under the hood details have all been done as of the first week of Mid-August. It has been brought to daily driver status. Even with that big 390 cubic inch motor. She's getting around 13.5mpg, and running beautifully. It has a Holley 2bbl Carb. Has dual exhaust with oldglass-packs. Sounds fine, and is hanging well. But the exhaust system is showing it's age.

  • Original paint with lots of character
  • Ready to drive as-is, or restore!
  • All of the trim is intact!
  • All of the dog-dish hubcaps and original wheels still!
  • Engine runs smooth, no noises or smoke. Strong!
  • Transmission shifts perfectly.
  • Clean interior.
  • Fair tires with 80% tread.
I love driving this truck. It get's lots of compliments, is easy to drive with the disc front brakes, and power steering. It starts every time. And is a great cruiser with the C-6 and 3.54rear-end. It all works, and it's a lot of fun! Mypetitewife has no problem driving this truck, which out of a dozen or so that we've owned this year, it's the only one she's comfortable with! I guess it makes a difference to have those Sport Custom upgrades.
the BAD
  • Has aftermarket mirrors.
  • Has newer radio. (Which works, and has Aux-in)
  • Passenger side rear cab corner has small rusty hole. (see photo)
  • Two small rust holes at the front of the bed. (see photo)
  • Light cancer starting on the inside of the tailgate. (see photo)
  • Overall beat/up dinged up exterior.
  • Small oil drip at the rear of the motor. (valve cover possibly?)
  • Small drip at the rear differential. (typical!)
  • Dash pad is cracked
  • Seat has a tear. But it is the original and can easily bereupholstered.
  • Starter/Flywheel is a bit noisy on startup. Probably just worn gears. Doesn'tkeepit from turning over fine.
  • Windshieldhas a couple minor dime-size rock chips.
It might seem like the 'bad' list is pretty long. However, at least there's a list! I like to put everything out on the table, so that you know exactly what you are purchasing. The above items are my biggest bargaining points. This truck has a ton of character. It's has it's age written all over it. But yet the Swiss Aqua paint shines through, and reminds us of the glory years. This pickup would be a great restoration candidate, however, personally.. I've grown a bit fond of it just the way it is. I wouldn't hesitate to head off cross country in this rig. So if you're so inclined, fly here, and drive it home!
I strive to make every effort to present a straight forward and honest sale. There are certainly flaws, as there will be with most of these as-is original trucks.Please see my previous classic Ford pickup sales this year, and my feedback rating. I'm not happy unless you are happy!
-- NOTE --Most shipping quotes on this pickup are similar. From Here in Boise, to just about anyplace in the lower 48 states, it will ship between $800-$1200, fully insured. I will do my best to assist you in finding a reputable carrier, and have become friends with several drivers. We can get it to yousecurely!
