1965 Ford F-100
If you're a truck fan, you literally have thousands of choices. You can choose something like everyone else, or you can go a little off the beaten path with this 1965 Ford F100. This is one of those trucks that gets everything right, from the burly 302 to the stunning two-tone paint, and this is quite likely the finest one we've ever seen. Seriously.
First of all, this truck looks absolutely spectacular. The regular cab/short bed combination was rather rare back in the day, but it remains the one to own if you're looking for a fun truck instead of a work truck. Ford took a conservative path with their trucks, but between the stunning two-tone paint and some well-chosen brightwork, it has a very detailed look. The paint was refinished about five years ago and still looks spectacular, offering laser-straight bodywork, awesome gaps, and a depth that you just couldn't buy in 1965. The shiny grille and bright chrome bumpers dress it up, and that long strip of stainless running down the side gives it a sporty look that accentuates the two-tone look. The bed is protected by a drop-in rubber mat, but the paint in there is probably too nice to ever see real hauling again. This truck is just gorgeous!
That flashy two-tone green and white interior is fresh and looks fantastic. The cloth and vinyl combination keeps an OEM look but elevates this truck above its siblings, and has been restored to stock specs. Matching door panels, new carpets, and a fresh headliner all contribute to the fresh feel. Original gauges look fantastic, and it isn't often that you see the auxiliary ammeter and oil pressure gauges on these trucks. The original AM radio remains in the center of the dash, although it's not currently operational. This truck uses a 3-speed manual transmission, which has a column shifter that's fun to row through the gears and clutch action is light. From behind the wheel, this doesn't feel like a crude truck even a little.
With a torquey 302 cubic inch V8 under the hood of this relatively lightweight pickup, performance is impressive. Dressed up like a stock 289 (the 302 wasn't available in 1965), nobody will suspect that there's a good deal of performance on tap here. Whether it's blasting from red light to red light or hitting the road for a cross-country trip, this powertrain in this truck delivers. A stock 2-barrel carburetor and factory intake handle the air and fuel while a modest-sounding dual exhaust system handles the fumes. Against that satin black engine bay, the bright Ford Blue engine looks great and even with all that V8 in there, service access is excellent. A dual master cylinder was added for safety, and the 3-speed manual transmission was rebuilt when the truck was restored, so it shifts cleanly. Out back, a rugged 9-inch rear end handles the torque the engine cranks out and you'll note that the undercarriage is every bit as well-restored as the rest of this truck. Handsome 15-inch wheels from a late-model F150 lend the truck a sporty demeanor and are fitted with beefy Yokohama radials that fill the wheel wells perfectly.
Not like all the others, this F100 is an incredibly nice truck that carries a shockingly reasonable price tag given the quality. This is a heck of a lot of Ford for the money. Call today!
