A truck this interesting is rarely this affordable. After all, this 1962 Ford F-100 is from those few short/cool years that there was the unibody option. So it's great to see this V8-powered pickup showcased with an attention-grabbing two-tone and some well-integrated upgrades.
Ford's brief flirtation with a seamless unibody option on the F-series has kept a truck like this an in-demand classic. It was this seamless unibody that was exactly right for featuring the full-length style lines that were stamped directly in the sheet metal. And this one was built from day one to showcase the unbroken lines ideally with a distinct Caribbean Turquoise and Corinthian White. This factory-correct two-tone was updated to make sure it continues to have a great glossy style, and so it really showcases the artful creases in the body that makes the panels so attractive. Ford also added some dramatic flares around the wheel arches making this one of the best-looking trucks of the early 1960s. Bright chrome bumpers, an intricate grille, white steel wheels, classic Ford badging make for a nice vintage cruiser style. Plus, this still keeps a useful truck attitude with color-matched liner paint in the useful long bed, and there's a diamond plate toolbox for storing gear.
This was restored so that the exterior turquoise and white returns inside in a nicely intertwined style. There are terrific details, like the tuck and roll seat inserts and the headliner was done to match. There are useful detail upgrades like seatbelts and thick rubber mats. You even have a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and a subwoofer speaker system for the best in driving music. But the seat hides it all to make sure nothing gets in the way of a true vintage atmosphere. So when you slip behind the artful steering wheel, all you see is a clean and simple classic two-tone dash with easy controls.
Under the hood is Ford's premium 292 cubic-inch Y-block motor. It's nicely detailed with the firewall, air grabber, oil filler cap, and FORD script valve covers all done in turquoise to coordinate with the exterior. So it looks even more distinct than chrome would within the dark and smooth inner fender walls. More importantly, it fires up and runs with the kind of feeling that you know it was well respected. In fact, this truck is coming off of nearly two decades of ownership, and it received solid restoration investments during that time. A classic truck like this wants you to feel the road, but it also wants to make it easy to cruise the byways. That's why you have features like an automatic transmission and modern tires.
The sale comes complete with terrific paperwork like the owner's manual, service manuals, build receipts, and maintenance records. There's even a 1962-style Florida license plate. This is the rare unibody that has a sleek two-tone. It's a distinctive classic pickup offered for a value price. Call today!!!
