Description for Ford F-100 1969

In the coming years, you're going to be seeing a lot more trucks like this 1969 Ford F-100 showing up at events. The reason is that these kinds of vehicles represent an easy way to have V8 power and rear-wheel-drive, not to mention a significant part of automotive history, all for a very affordable price. But they're scarce, so good ones like this will not be common without big injections of cash, so perhaps now is the time to buy.With a paint job that matches its blue-collar demeanor, this bright red pickup has a great old-school look that's both attractive and rugged, and according to the door tag, Candyapple Red was this truck's original color. It's not full of metallics like modern paint, so it has an authenticity that many restorations lack, and while there's some age and use on it, it will still grab everyone's attention out on the road. Perhaps it worked for a living in the past, but judging by the overall vibe, it has probably been a favorite hobby vehicle for many years, getting regular baths and wax jobs on weekends. Panel gaps are good and the seams line up well, and almost all the chrome and stainless trim is in decent original condition. The bed was treated to a color-matched spray-in bedliner so it'll look good for years and you won't have to worry about scuffing it. It's not perfect, but it's definitely perfect if you want to use it as intended.The interior is pretty much as it was in 1969, a no-nonsense working environment that's designed to be durable and functional above all else. There's a newer red seat cover that replaces the original one but that doesn't mean it's not comfortable. Heavy-duty carpets mean you can climb in with your work boots and clean it out later, and this is most definitely a truck that's easy to live with, offering power steering and brakes plus a column-shifted automatic transmission. The standard Ford instrument panel has a neat look with a complete set of gauges to monitor the engine (including optional ammeter and oil pressure gauges) and they did upgrade to an AM/FM/cassette stereo which is surely a step up from the original AM unit. Yeah, the dash is a little faded and the instrument lenses are cloudy, but there's no shame in being original. Ford had a variety of truck-only engines, and one of the most popular in 1969 was the 302 cubic inch V8. Nicely restored to original specs, it's a torquey powerplant that makes the truck feel nimble when it's empty and moves heavy loads without seeming to work hard. Ford Blue paint on the block, finned valve covers, and an open-element air cleaner give it a hi-performance look. Lots of new components mean it runs well and it has a great V8 exhaust note thanks to long-tube headers and a custom dual exhaust setup with glasspack-style mufflers. The chassis is not detailed for show, but it does have a clean, straight frame and no issues with a 3-speed automatic transmission feeding a heavy-duty 9-inch rear end with 3.25 gears inside. Sturdy 15-inch wheels dress it up and carry 255/70/15 white-letter radials.This is a simple truck, but someone has invested a good amount of time and effort to make it rise above its humble origins.
