1966 Ford F-100 Custom Cab

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 1966 Ford F100 Custom Cab. This is one of those trucks that gets things right, from the burly 428 V8 under the hood, to the shiny turquoise paint, and to the comfortable cruising this beauty provides. First of all, this truck looks great. 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 shiny paint and some well-chosen trim and brightwork, it has a very detailed look. The paint color is actually quite rare, known as Caribbean Turquoise, it could only be ordered by the owner of the dealership, so there aren't many out there like it. It's been refinished nicely and still looks very good, not perfect, but nice enough to get appreciative second-glances on the road and show proudly on weekends. The '66 grille dresses it up and experts will appreciate the custom look, and that long strip of stainless running down the side gives it a sporty look. The bed was painted to match, covered with a rubber mat on the floor, and topped with a tonneau cover for added privacy/protection, and shiny bumpers at both ends remind you that this isn't just some work truck, but rather something that's still quite special. That black and turquoise interior is simple enough to stay in-era, yet comfortable enough for extended stays in the cab, and it perfectly complements the exterior of this truck. The original black bench seat has been recovered and keeps an OEM look but elevates this truck above its siblings and is quite comfortable on long-distance cruises. Matching door panels, a padded dash, new carpets, and a clean headliner all contribute to the fresh feel. The factory centered all-in-one gauge with a beautifully machined instrument panel provide a full readout of the big block's condition, and thanks to an intuitively designed original steering wheel, it's all very easy to see. That Limited Edition center console you see under the dash was only available as a dealer add-on and is exceedingly rare! It houses a Cobra 21 PA system, AM/FM/Cassette player, and speakers on each side. How cool is that?! With a big 428 cubic inch V8 Police Interceptor under the hood of this relatively lightweight pickup, performance is extremely impressive. Whether it's blasting from red light to red light or hitting the road for a cross-country trip, the powertrain in this truck delivers. A Holley carb and stock-style intake handle the air and fuel while stock headers and a pair of Glasspack-style give it a fantastic muscle car exhaust note. Against that shiny black paint of the inner fenders, the chrome air cleaner and valve covers look great and even with all that big block in there, service access is excellent. A gigantic aluminum radiator keeps the big motor cool at all times, Twin I-Beam suspension makes for great highway cruising and the power steering helps move the body around with ease while the rugged 9-inch rear end handles the mountain of torque the engine cranks out. Handsome 15-inch Ion aluminum wheels lend the truck a sporty demeanor and are fitted with beefy 255/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear Cooper Cobra radials that fill the wheel wells perfectly. Not like all the others, this F100 Custom Cab is a really nice truck that'll surprise more than a few performance car owners and is still happy to put in a hard day's work. Call today!
