1974 Ford F-100 Patina Restomod
STREETSIDE CLASSIC CARS CHARLOTTE
Concord, NC 28027
We're all on the lookout for the shop truck that can secretly smoke them all. That's why we know you'll love that beneath the cool patina is a performance-built FE block V8. And this one is even secretly rewarding with upgrades like four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and an A/C interior. So dig into all the details on a very cool and very affordable custom pickup.
The worn-in look of patina is red hot right now, especially on trucks. It feels like the friend that's been there through all our best stories. There's an authenticity to this pickup, right down to the bumper sticker for Willie Nelson's 4th of July picnic. But you'll also notice an overall level of care. That's how a premium Ranger XLT like this retains its full trim package that gives this pickup extra distinction. While most of the truck is incognito, you see its true charm in the upgraded set of large 22-inch solid wheels with a nice aggressive stance on the lowered suspension.
The interior has the look of a cool well-maintained older pickup. A newer bench seat, complete door panels, and the Ranger XLT's premium dash make this a nice place to spend some time. There's even cold-blowing R134a air conditioning for true comfort. And the vintage Ford steering wheel and factory gauges really hit home the classic feel. But that floor shifter with custom piston knob signals to you there's something special in the engine bay even before you twist the key and hear it roar.
The moment you open the hood, any notion that this is just an average workday pickup is instantly erased. All the fresh and polished components instantly tell everyone there was a big investment in serious power. This is Ford's famous FE V8 " the one that put them on the map for racing back in the day. And this one has been built in the same tradition. It has been enhanced with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, MSD distributor, upgraded serpentine pulleys, and headers feeding the rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust. This is an exceptionally powerful setup that can really teach a lesson on the streets. But the full build proves this is a much more versatile machine. We have thousands $$$$ in receipts detailing plenty of work that has going into this truck in 2017. That's why many suspension component look fresh, including bushings. And this has a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that's stout enough to handle the big power, and it's also smooth enough to let you ride in overdrive comfort. Plus, the aluminum radiator w/electric fan is there to help keep this running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Add in the power steering and upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes, and this patina'd truck feels like quite a comfortable classic.
This is a great all-around build with a cool custom attitude. So at a price like this, you know it's going to be gone soon. Call now!
