Description for Ford F-100 1969

This is a pretty clean F100 that can be a daily driver as you restore it back to its original glory (Or just use it as a classic farm truck as-is). In 1969 the US put a man on the moon, so the '69 Ford F100 is a 48 year remembrance of an earlier time.
The best feature is the overall mileage ( less 99k) on an original 390 V8 engine. This is 6.4 liters by today's more common measurement system, and it has a lot of pull and power.
This is a Ford Ranger edition with the factory two-tone paint. It has '4 on the floor' and an original AM radio. Ranger accessories.
I like this truck because most all the original pieces are still present. This makes it a lot easier to restore instead of looking around and spending a lot of money finding old parts. Most Ford's don't have the side trim, badges and two-tone paint.
The body is good to fair as it has some rust spots that would need to be fixed if you want to put a fancy paint job on it. Mostly some under cab work on the rear corners and cross member; floorboards are generally solid.
The original paint has a great patina on it (see the hood photo for sure) so it's typical for people to restore the mechanical parts of the truck and drive it around with the body looking as-is like a farm truck. It's definitely a sleeper with the 390.
Plenty of little things to fix but overall it runs great and has good brakes. The power steering works fine but is very noisy so I recommend a new pump. Interior is good with worn carpet and seat on drivers side. Windshield has a crack in it. Wheels are steel and it would look nice to upgrade to some white painted wheels. Tires are good but not matching.
This truck is simply fun to own and work on. Dressing it up would be the right thing to do. If you want to do a full restoration that's okay too but there are a few parts of the cab and bed that would need metal work if you're going to the expense of a frame off restoration.
I've been building and re-building cars for over 20 years and this F100 is a classic farm truck, The 390 V8 is amazing and worth bringing the rest of it up to match it's level of performance.
If you can see yourself owning this vehicle, a$350 deposit is needed after auction end. I can help coordinate shipping to your location. The truck is road worthy so if you want to drive it away that's fine as well.
Feel free to contact with any questions, and thanks for looking,
