Ford F-100 360 V8 1968

General description : LOADED PERIOD CORRECT F100, 360 V8, C6, R134 AC, PS, PB W/DISC, FACTORY COLORS

In the vintage truck world, there's often the choice of form OR function, but this 1968 Ford F-100 Ranger offers both. You get correct and interesting colors, and that's joined by some great modern upgrades. Plus, with plenty of V8 power, you have an affordable classic that has style and substance.
This truck is a well assembled package. It starts with a nice application of the factory-correct two-tone Rangoon Red and Wimbledon White. When sunshine hits this pickup, you can tell the difference a professional respray makes later in life just by the added luster of the modern clearcoat application. As an upper-level Ranger model, you also get the bright chrome bumper, an upgraded grille, and full-length trim that provides a great dividing line for the two colors. So the full effect is a great 1960s classic machine. And this feeling of originality goes right down to the wheel covers. Plus, don't you just love the HD rear bumper that has the old-school style of the dealer name etched in the metal? But this also is the key to the rest of this truck's appeal. With that trailer hitch on that bumper, a bed cover, and protected bed mat/liner paint underneath, you know this vintage pickup still knows how to get to work.
The exterior red returns on the metal parts of the interior, and now it's joined by a tasteful black. It feels like special attention was paid to make sure this retains the classic truck look while also keeping it feeling fresh. And we love the original steering wheel that looks more at home in a Ford Fairlane than a Ford truck. It has that perfect deep-groove grippy feel you get from the best vintage machines. And while you'll even enjoy the classic feeling on everything from the gauge panel to the heat/defrost sliders, and this truck also has upgraded R134a air conditioning.
There was over $5k invested this year in this truck, and the engine bay really showcases that. The 360 cubic-inch V8 looks great in the bold blue block paint with matching valve covers and air topper. Plus, the belts, wires, and hoses look fresh and tidy. And it has all the right components maintenance, including a new alternator, fuel pump, and aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans to help keep this truck running cool. So the V8 fires up nicely, and it makes a sweet sound out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. A classic truck like this was meant to be driven, so you have the right features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and upgraded front disc brakes.
Complete with maintenance records, this truck has been given the right investments to be a distinct classic with the right upgrades. That makes for a terrific total package. So don't miss out, call today!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
