This is the kind of truck that celebrates an honest day's work. This 1971 Ford F-100 has the look of a pure classic workhorse, right down to the paint and truck bed. And the improvements are only subtle ones to make this cool ride more comfortable while never losing sight of the idea of honest endurance.
Take a look at that Calypso Coral paintwork. It might not be the freshest you've ever seen, and that's because it shows all the right signs of being the exact same paint this F-100 had when it left the Kansas City factory a half-century ago. People will wonder if you're driving a barn find. It's the kind of interest you couldn't generate with a pickup that costs four times as much! It has the best stock details with the classic wheel covers, correct badging, and a full-size spare mounted in the truck bed. And speaking of the bed, you just know you'll be thinking about all the different jobs it took to get it looking like this. There have been some investments here recently like new headlights, side mirrors, and rear step bumper. So these additions are just as much about function as they are flair...and that just feels right on a truck like this.
The interior is the right mix of vintage and comfort. There have been some investments in newer door panels, a dash pad, and a bench seat with comfy cloth insert. It's nothing drastic to take away from the classic style, but just the right amount of freshness to keep this inviting. There are provisions for some distinct features like the AM radio and air conditioning (they will need servicing to function again.) and even the dome light is still working. Plus, we know you'll love the feeling of the worn-in dual-spoke steering wheel that really lets you get in touch with the generations who have relied on this pickup.
Under the hood is the correct-style 240 cubic-inch motor that's presented just as honestly as the rest of this pickup. These Ford F-100s are hot right now, and we all know some big V8s fit under here. So we bet the value price has some of you thinking about everything from a stealth shop truck build to a solid base for your next restomod. But we just like how this one already is today. The inline-six has been part of the backbone of working Ford, and it feels right at home here. And there has been a solid investment in maintaining it, including new pieces like the fuel tank, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, air filter, battery, and carburetor. So it still runs with the same hardy attitude you love in an honest pickup. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the motor, and there are even new modern tires to feel good going down the road.
This F-100 has the look of going to work for 50 years, and it's nowhere near ready for retirement. This can be an excellent restoration candidate, but just as it is, there will be crowds at the car show amazed at just how great this survivor wears its history.
