This 1971 Ford F-100 has that attractive patina shop truck vibe where people can't help but stop and stare (after all, that's why you're reading this listing!) So dig into all the details on this original style with plenty of extra hints of cool.
The paint on this truck has an instant distinction. The green has aged into a well-earned patina that has the exceptional appearance of originality. There are even some cool hints at this truck's previous life with the logo still visible .....
on the passenger door for the Douglas County School District of Roseburg, Oregon. There's even some numbering on the tailgate. So it really has the look of a proper workhorse. You even still have trailering side mirrors and a rear step bumper with ball hitch and wiring plug. And of course, a bed like this one will never have you worrying about using this classic for real pickup duty. That's what gives it that ultra-cool shop truck vibe. There's even a nice lowered stance on the upgraded American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
The interior is highly original and appears weathered. There are plenty of components available to easily and inexpensively upgrade this look, but that's not the real point of a pickup like this. You love it because a patina truck is all about wearing its workman history with pride, and this one certainly does that. It's basic and absolutely nostalgic. The only real upgrade is the velour bench seat cover, because as much as you may love originality, it's always nice to feel comfy behind the wheel.
The towering blue block of Ford's inline-six really looks terrific in the engine bay. It looks as honest as the rest of this truck, and it just has the tall looks of a sturdy powerhouse. So while a monster V8 would fit in here easily, there's just a cool feeling of stock that fits in with this pickup's theme. There's a true vintage feeling, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. However, the ride is elevated by the right investments, including a newer front suspension and modern tires that come with the wheel upgrade.
Some of us understand exactly the appeal of a well-aged F-Series like this. So if you love a true patina classic, call today!
