This 1973 Ford F-100 Custom is a terrific nostalgia-filled classic. It was long-term first owned by one family, and so there is an impressive stock style and terrific paperwork. And while this has even aged correctly in some places, there have also been the right investments to make sure this is a comfortable cruising classic.
You know you just love the old-school survivor style of this truck. It has a pure stock look everywhere from the iconic grille to the vintage dog dish hubcaps. .....
And the body panels look well-resected, right down to the full-length trim that looks like an almost unbroken line. The consignor bought this pickup from the original owner's daughter. So long-term care under its first family means everything from the mileage to the motor is believed to be original to the truck. There are a few details that have been updated over the years, but nothing ever looks out of place. For example, the factory-correct Candyapple Red was resprayed later in life, but it has the single-stage look and the right aging that most people will just assume it's original.
The bright red is joined by a classic black inside, and this interior continues the stock look with subtle upgrades. For example, the bench seat has a fresh cover. It makes for a factory look while still providing the right comfort. There's also a clean look to the door panels, dash pad, and durable rubber floor. The dual-spoke steering wheel has a great classic grip; the Philco AM radio is still there for a display; and warms you up on the days you get to cars & coffee at dawn. So this classic long bed pickup has transitioned from a respected workhorse to a cool classic cruiser.
The bright blue motor under the hood is the correct 360 cubic-inch V8. There's a terrific stock style, right down to the factory decal still on the valve cover. The jack is even still mounted to the inner fender. But as you look all of this over, you can also spot solid maintenance investments. It includes newer pieces like the distributor, plugs, wires, hoses, belt, and radiator. It makes for a strong-running V8 that you take full control over in the old-school way with the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission. And features like good cruising tires, newer brake lines, and front discs make this fun on the road.
The sale comes with an impressive history file that includes the factory buildsheet, original bill of sale, warranty card, owner's manual, previous registrations, and maintenance records. This is the true classic pickup for those who want the genuine vintage truck feel. Call today!!!
