A red 1968 Ford F-100 will catch your eye for being both bright and vintage. But those big polished wheels tell you to dig deeper into the presentation. What you will find is a full restomod build with a Boss Mustang level fuel-injected V8, an overdrive transmission, an upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for an impressive total package that you'll love to drive.
The bright red paint, clean body lines, straight full-length trim, and chrome bumpers are great for nostalgia. And we like how this one has terrific lines without losing the work-ready pickup attitude. So nothing gets too fancy, and you have color-matched liner paint on the bed. After all, a touch of rugged attitude makes for a good street machine, and those high-polished 20-inch wheels and low-profile tires suggest your classic pickup is also a fast Ford.
The sleek red returns inside on the metal components of the doors and dash. A tasteful black joins it on the smooth dash pad, nice carpeting, and more for an attitude that feels like it wants to get down to driving. The B&M shifter, Grant GT sports steering wheel, tilt column, and crisp gauges upgrade the driver's experience. But this is more than just a power pickup. The upgraded bench seat has good bolstering and a fold-down armrest to be good for both spirited driving and long-haul comfortable. And upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM stereo add the right extras for an all-around enjoyable interior.
We often see engine upgrades in these classic Ford F-Series pickups, but rarely as cool as this. Under the hood is the 4.6-liter fuel-injected Modular V8. This is said to have been borrowed from a Mercury Marauder, which means it's the four-valve DOHC version that would also find a home in the Cobra and Mach 1 Mustangs. It's cleanly installed for those who want a real driver, and you even have the right extras like an electric fan and an Optima red top battery. The four-speed automatic transmission has the ratios for strong acceleration or easy overdrive cruising. Because this truck has the style and heart that makes it great to drive, they also upgraded the suspension. This includes the Marauder/Crown Vic independent front end, rear coilovers, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy Goodyear Eagle tires.
Vintage style, the right upgrades, and plenty of fuel-injected power all come together on the custom truck you know belongs in your garage. Call now!
