Description for Ford F-100 1962

You gotta get excited about a pickup that has spent over half a century as a workhorse, and yet it's eligible for survivor status at you next car show. This 1962 Ford F-100 is a true lesson in honest endurance, right down to its original motor.Take a look at that Viking Blue paintwork. It has an honest condition that's going to attract all sorts of attention, and some people will wonder if you're driving a barn find. It's the kind interest you couldn't generate with a pickup that cost four times as much! This truck was about going to work, that's why you won't find much brightwork here beyond the original Ford and Custom Cab badges. But that's actually is an advantage. With the bumpers, factory wheel covers, and roof all rendered in white, you get a terrific two-tone style presentation. The colors of the exterior continue inside. It's especially nice on the blue and white dashboard. The proper instruments are still in place, right down to the heat/defrost controls and clear speedometer. We believe the steering wheel is original, and it has that perfect worn in feeling where you'll be reminded of the workmen who came before you every time you grab ahold. And we know you'll love the old-school mechanical feeling of rowing through the column-mounted shifter. The total experience will make even trips to the supermarket feel like you're out in the fields on a hay run.Under the hood is the original 223 cubic-inch inline six. The "Mileage Maker" motor was important for those who like using their trucks on the long haul. It's an important powerplant that's rarely seen anymore...that's why we're so happy to see it still under the hood. And with the correct red valve cover and slick black engine bay, this one shows signs that it has been treated with the respect it deserves. Plus, averaging only about 900 miles annually makes it an appealing survivor. Good maintenance also means this one runs smooth and makes a hypnotic exhaust note. With well-matched gears in the three-speed manual transmission, it keeps up with traffic without any issues. And you might have even noticed that the front suspension has been given some recent attention, including an upgrade to front disc brakes. It's the kind of package that can surprise a lot of folks as they see you driving around town or going on a lumber yard run.The stories this ultra-low mileage pickup can tell and the places it can still go are worth the very affordable price all on its own. That's why this original and authentic F-100 is not going to stay with us long. Don't miss out, call today!
