One look at this 1964 Ford F-350 Stakebed dually and we know that you have plenty of plans. Is it a cool way to promote your business? The most genuine truck you can bring to the farm? A great way to take around your other toys? Of course, this authentic but useful truck is ideal for all that fun and more.
There's a pretty cool history that we're told on this truck. The truck's name is Clyde Earl because that's the name of the first owner. He earned a connected legacy to this Ford because he cut down black walnut wood from his property and took the lumber to his local dealer for them to create this stake side bed before he took the truck home brand new. Today we know an F-350 from the 1960s is quite a rare sight. These extra-duty trucks were usually used up in service, and so far fewer are seen today. Its useful nature can be seen in the work-ready features like the dual rear wheels, HD wheels, larger towing mirrors, and cab running lights. You could update the finish, or even give the chrome grille a nice polish, but we really like how this one already is. It's the honest style you expect from a truck like this that gives it instant credibility. In fact, the dents in the cab are from when a barn fell on it a few years ago in a tornado. Not only did Clyde Earl survive, but it also cleaned up the barn that fell on it when the storm cleared. That kind of authentic robustness rarely comes up for sale.
The authentic feeling continues inside. It's hard not to love sitting behind the large three-spoke steering wheel and letting your right hand rest on the tall shifter. You instantly feel like you're taking your load to market. The rugged rubber floor, smooth steel dash, and sparse/airy atmosphere are all part of a true classic truck experience. But you will also notice they took the time to keep it clean and make it comfortable, including the cool pattern in the smooth bench seat.
The 292 cubic-inch V8 was one of the largest motors across the Ford lineup in 1964, so it's great to have it powering this industrial machine. It looks quite honest everywhere from the aged Ford valve covers to the factory decal on the air grabber. So it fits well with the authentic feeling of this truck. Another key to the truck's usefulness is the four-speed manual transmission. The "granny" low first gear means utilizing plenty of torque from the start, so this stake bed truck can get going even when under a load.
Complete with the owner's manual, It's hard not to get excited by a genuine farm truck like this. You could stencil your brand new company's name on the side, and it would look like you were in business for generations. Or maybe you put some custom Harleys on the back to let those have a cool contrast with shining chrome and metallic paint. Oh yeah, we know your mind is racing with all the fun you can have with this classic stake-side flatbed, and so you need to be the first to grab this deal. Call today!!!
