1971 Ford F-100Let's start with the bad....
It has some rust in the floor pans, left inner fender and on the ends of the cab cross member. None of this is compromising the overall structure but its there and will eventually need some attention. Also has a little spot on the lower rear corner of the driver door and left fender bottom. The cab mounts have been worked by previous owner and are solid. Other than that there's the normal surface spots here and there which have been controlled with touch up paint throughout the years.
So on to the good stuff...
This truck drives quite impressively. Power steering makes it a joy to drive. Goes straight down the road smoothly and quietly. All original under the hood with the factory 302 V8 engin, backed by the standard 3 speed manual transmission column shift. New dual exhaust front to back sounds nice and not loud. Manual brakes in working order. Just a few hundred miles on the 235/75R15 tires and 15X8 wagon wheels. All electrical and lights are in working order but the horn does not work. Battery is new 4/19.
This truck is all stock and still drives like new. I'm not using the word "new" loosely here. This beauty has been well maintained with pride. Only 2 owners. 2nd owner purchased it in 1987 in Bluff City, TN. and was garage parked since then.
The body is straight... period! The truck was repainted in the 90's with the original colors, Wimbledon White and Candy Apple Red. Looks like a nice paint job that is now showing some age. Basically what I'm saying is its not perfect but it still looks beautiful! The doors open and close like new. Door locks work with key. The windows roll down and back up like new. All the glass is crystal clear and original, front, sides and back. The tailgate opens and closes like new. The inside of the bed is straight too and not all banged up. It did have a drop in bed liner which I removed. Also the tailgate and the top edge are nice and straight. Has a new chrome rear step bumper.
The interior is clean and original. The dash still looks new. Bench seat has a little wear on the driver side where it has torn slightly. Speedo, Gauges and Dash Lights are all working as is the dome light. Added air conditioning with a beautiful vintage chrome Mercury condenser/blower. It has the old compressor which spins freely and quietly but the belt has been removed. The Blower and controls on the condenser are working. The heater and defrost work properly and the knobs slide smoothly. Also has a period correct Craig AM/FM Cassette deck installed with 2 period correct Pioneer speakers mounted under the dash.
