1959 Ford F-100 CUSTOM CAB
1959 F100 was found in a barn in Texas. Had been there over 25 years when the previous owner purchased it 5 years ago. He spent the next 5 years "restoring it". He spent over $6000 in parts alone. It has all new glass, seals, and weather stripping. New fuel tank and sender. New floor mat and seat cover, headliner, and knobs. New shocks, tail gate chains, wheel cylinders and brakes. The original 6 cylinder engine has new bearings, rings ..new starter. new Clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. Im sure Im leaving some things out but you get the idea. It runs and performs like you'd expect a 58 year old. You can drive it home as long as you are not in a hurry to get there. Its no speed demon but starts right up and purrs like a kitten. Lights all work. The only thing I know of that doesn't work is the speedometer (should be an easy fix)Now let me tell you about the paint... the gentleman who "restored" this truck was no body man or painter and it shows. The body has a few dents and although he used a quality paint, it looks like oatmeal to me. Fortunately he started with an almost completely rust free truck. He did prep it by sanding it all down and applied primer before painting it. Im sure it could be corrected without starting from scratch if you want it perfect. As it is, it looks good going down the road and from a distance and even in pictures. i can be reached at 903-724-3702 if you have any questions. Remember, I didn't personally restore it but will answer questions if I can. Thanks for looking.
