Classic Car Overview
Trucks, weve got em! For Ford fans, this 1965 F100 Custom Cab represents the pinnacle of the heavily stylized 60s F-series, and with a burly 289 V8 under the hood, its a great example of a hauler that can move like a muscle car. Oh, it also happens to look pretty darn good too. This truck neatly straddles the line between the highly detailed look of the late 1950s and the smoother, more purposeful F-series trucks that would follow. Wearing code FM Arcadian Blue and Wimbledon White paint, which is correct for this truck, it has a great pastel look that was probably a great choice in the mid-1960s. Theres a nice shine to the finish and it has a great overall look thats been slightly broken-in since it was finished, so its casual and comfortable in any situation. Plenty of bright trim was the calling card of even pickup trucks of this vintage, perhaps because they didnt get tail fins in the 50s, and details like the grille, stainless side spears, and emblems are in good condition. And one look in the painted bed will prove that this truck hasnt been forced to work for a living for a very long time. The bright blue interior looks fresh, too, with a snug fitting reproduction seat cover on the original bench, a newer, heavy-duty vinyl floor covering, and a giant color-matched steering wheel. The look is future fantastic from the 60s, with lots of chrome on the instrument panel and a handsome steering wheel that would work equally well in a top-of-the-line Galaxie. An engine-turned panel surrounds the primary gauge panel, with secondary controls in a neat row underneath, just like the Ford passenger cars of the period. White vinyl door panels contrast nicely with the Arcadian Blue painted doors, along with darker blue accent panels toward the bottom that provide just enough contrast. Like most pickups of the period, there arent a lot of options, but it does include the original AM radio in the dash that gives it just the right look for 1965. The top engine in 1965 was a 352 cubic inch V8, but since more lightweight and efficient small blocks were in the Ford arsenal that year (and subsequent years for that matter), some enterprising soul has stuffed a familiar 289 cubic inch V8 between the fenders. Dressed in Ford Blue, it almost looks like it was born there, and with that big air breather, it has the same performance vibe as, say, a comparable Galaxie. A stock-style carburetor offers instantaneous throttle response and the small block moves the relatively lightweight pickup with genuine authority. Linked to a 3-on-the-tree transmission and a sturdy 9-inch rear end, its easy to drive and even rides well with the Twin I-Beam front suspension soaking up the bumps. Flowmaster dual exhaust gives the 289 a muscular sound and painted steel wheels with painted factory hubcaps are the perfect period touch when you want to make things look like they did in your fathers day. 235/75/15 blackwall radials have been fitted, so it has a great footprint that fills the fenders quite nicely. A neat truck for Ford fans who like the old styling with plenty of power to tackle any job. Call today!
