Check out this one family owned 65 Ford F-100. It is a great truck that was owned by a gentleman almost it's entire life. When he passed, it went to his nephew. There have been some updates to the truck, but nothing to take away from the originality of the truck. The original block threw a rod, so the original owner found another 65 Straight 6 block to replace the original. That block was rebuilt and in stalled approximately 10 years ago.
The owners nephew, the current owner, has added Old Air A/C and heat, power front disc brakes, air assist rear suspension, and a modern stereo system, a new radiator and more. We have receipts totaling just under $15,000. in work done on the truck since 2009.
The great thing about this truck is that everything works. It starts every time, there are no leaks that we have detected, and it runs great. The original door tag is in place. You will see that this was a Dallas built truck. It spent most of it's life in Texas except for a period of time in California while the owner was in the Marines. We would like to thank him for his service and appreciate what he did for us.
The F-100 had a new paint job several years ago to it's original light blue. The original color was Arcadian Blue. We don't know if this is that same color, but it is very close if not. The owner left the rear bumper untouched because of the memories of his uncle and growing up with the truck. He wanted to leave it original. The Valley hitch with the added air assist, will allow you to haul a trailer and you can also air up the suspension for carrying heavy loads in the bed. The fuel tank was moved to the rear.
Originally 3.5 gears, the truck had the 3rd member removed in 2016 and rebuilt with 2.75 gears. Literally un-restored, you can see that the truck just has surface rust on the undercarriage and is very solid. This shows that it was in a good climate all of it's life. There is a tiny bit of rust showing on this area of the bed on both sides. There are a few chips on the bumper and on the body, but nothing major. There is this chip in the windshield. This is your opportunity to own a great old Ford truck.
