Description for Ford F-100 1972

Bright paint, a throaty exhaust, and plenty of shine turns heads when going down the street. That's why you're instantly attracted to this restored 1972 Ford F100 Explorer. And as you dig deeper, you're going to see vintage style with all the right upgrades, including air conditioning.

Ford did an amazing job in '72 with a bright grille, brighter bumpers, a little fender flare, and a hood design that looks like a double power dome. Plus, this Explorer trim's sweeping line of brightwork that runs from the front all the way down through the styleside bed helps to serve as a guide to demonstrate how straight the body is. You can see the restoration took the right effort to ensure both doors shut with confidence, and the hood and tailgate line up nicely when closed. But what everybody will notice is the recent application of Candy Apple Red paint is so sharp, and so vivid, it looks like a fire engine. Despite all this bold appearance, this Ford is still a pickup to its core. That's why the rear step bumper still has its trailer hitch on a heavy duty bumper, there are tall trailer mirrors, and the bed has a rugged liner paint.

While the exterior is red with some black accents, the interior switches the color theme. Now the black is dominant, and the look of the seat, dash and doors tell you there was plenty invested inside in quality. It's quite a vintage style setup, right down to the dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the gauges. But as you look closer, there are some great upgrades nicely integrated. For example, the radio has a classic look, but it's a modern AM/FM digital tuner. And the air conditioner still looks like the dealer-installed units form back in the day, but it's now blowing cold with modern R134a.

Just like the interior and exterior, there has been a solid investment under the hood, too. The bold blue of Ford's 360 cubic-inch V8 is actually a fresher Jasper crate motor. It's supported by everything from a new gas tank and to an aluminum radiator. So it's a strong-running package that means a sweet tune out of those polished dual exhaust tips. The three-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt only about three years ago, and so it provides smooth/easy shifting. Plus, there are other great driving features, like power steering, power brakes, and fresh tires on those bright 15-inch alloys.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a great cruising pickup that has been restored and upgraded in all the ways you want. So when something this nice is also so affordable, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
