There is something very “American” about the pickup trucks made by Ford in the mid-1960s. Dispensing with many of today’s “frills,” their rugged and practical design had an honest simplicity that continues to attract to this day. If these qualities—and an undeniably “cool” vibe—appeal to you, you will love this fully restored 1965 Ford F100.
Finished in eye-catching Bright Turquoise, this fleetside pickup’s finish has a mirror-like luster. You’ll also appreciate the quality of this truck’s bumpers, grille, and exterior trim, which shine like new. Adding additional visual appeal is its contrasting White vinyl tonneau cover that snaps firmly into place. Chrome Cragars, raised white letter tires, and bright dual exhaust tips add additional pop to this beauty.
The interior is equally appealing, featuring brand new bucket seats and a sporty center console finished in Black vinyl with contrasting white stitching. The Black carpeting and White headliner also show as new. White interior door panels, billet door handles and power window levers, and a piston-shaped gear selector knob add a custom touch. The dash board features a full complement of white-faced Dolphin gauges encased with handsome chrome bezels, keeping you fully informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll also appreciate its AM/FM stereo complete with CD player.
Under the hood you’ll find a powerful 428 CID Cobra Jet V-8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and 9” Ford rear end. The neatly presented engine compartment features “Cobra LeMans” valve covers and a Cobra air cleaner, not no subtly hinting at the power within. Other performance enhancements include front disc brakes, MSD electronic ignition, headers with electric cut-outs, dual exhaust, and an aluminum coolant expansion tank. It also benefits from new rear leaf springs.
Having just 2,900 miles since completed, this pickup runs and drives as well as it looks and is ready to enjoy.
If a mid-60s pickup with plenty of eye appeal—and the power to match—is what you desire, this 1965 F100 is the one for you!
