This sharp-looking 1966 Ford F-100 offers a pretty compelling proposition. Not only has it been rebuilt from the ground up to bring it to its current stellar condition, but it also features a smooth running, capable drivetrain and has been outfitted with a selection of features that make it an able daily driver, as well.
Its stout short bed form is clad in bright red paint that’s a great match for this vintage truck – a strong paint job, with a smooth consistent color wherever you look and you’ll find just the right additional steps have been taken to put the finishing touches on its appearance. There’s fresh rubber surrounding clear glass in both its front and rear windshields, straight and level bumpers both fore and aft, very clear headlights and taillights and especially sharp badging on its front end and fenders. As a fourth generation F-100, it’s a broader truck than its predecessors and the relatively compact bed it carries in back gives it a sturdy, rugged appearance. When its restoration arrived at the re-assembly phase, it was done with precision, so you’ll find this pickup is very well aligned – its doors and hood open and shut smoothly and a closer look will reveal that the body contour running the lengths of its sides remains impressively level as it transitions from cab to bed.
There are some great design choices on display inside the doors. A pair of plush, contoured gray bucket seats sit against a backdrop of clean carpeting that also lines the floor, providing all the comfort you could want for even the longest of road trips, and flanked by doors whose interiors have been updated, with their smooth steel exposed and painted to match the red of the exterior. In between the buckets, a custom-built center console not only provides welcome cupholders, but also a substantial amount of storage space, as well as armrests for both driver and passenger. A textured black instrument cluster sits just behind the Grant steering wheel, where its stock speedometer is joined by an Autometer tach and a trio of additional aftermarket gauges sits just below. Your audio needs will be well-looked after via the AM/FM/CD player sitting at the center of the dash, whose auxiliary port also provides connectivity to other listening options. The broad bed area in back has been armed with a Rhino liner that’s performed just as planned, and you’ll find no serious scuffs or other evidence of cargo damage inside its walls.
The engine compartment features a 351 M engine that has been painted Ford blue and sits between a pair of customized inner fenders, topped by a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner that rises above its Holley carb and a pair of chrome valve covers. The powerplant was rebuilt only a few thousand miles ago, and it’s running strong and sounding great as it breathes into its headers and it’s paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts with confidence-inspiring precision. A set of upgraded wires have been added to maximize combustion spark and they sit among the other well-ordered components inside the bay. Power steering provides easy navigation. This fresh-looking classic pickup takes to the street on a set of 15″ black steel rims wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials.
