You're looking at one cool vintage pickup, that's so well cared for, that the glistening two-tone is actually the original paint! In fact, the only major component that's not original is the recently rebuilt, but period-correct, 360ci V8. Oh yeah, this 1972 Ford F100 Ranger is the vintage pickup for fans of true classics.Everyone loves the look of this two-tone green. The Sea Pine is a great '70s era color, and with it on the lower portion and the roof, it does a nice job of sandwiching in the lighter Wintergreen. And while people will admire your taste in colors, you get to shock them by saying it's the original application. It has been given a careful and thorough buffing recently to bring out the shine, but this is the same paint that was on this F100 when it arrived in the Charlotte area 45 years ago. Yes, this truck was ordered for our district all those decades ago, and you can really tell it has been cared for properly over the years. In fact, you'll love the details like all that brightwork. These upper-level Rangers carried more trim than some of the Ford cars of the days, and they looked particularly premium directly from the factory. Today, all those pieces are still in place and intact, including the wide grille, chrome bumpers, bed rails, and dual strips that run the entire length of the pickup. But, there's also no mistaking those nice optional features that range from the period-correct trailer mirrors to the factory hubcaps. They couldn't resist adding the dual exhaust for a little flair, but let's face it, you'd do the same.When you open the door, you soon realize that the exterior two-tone is carried directly to the interior for a great uniform appearance. Wide enough for three across seating, the cab is surprisingly spacious, even in this age of extended and crew cab pickups. And, it feels quite nice thanks to a new seat cover and floor matting. Door panels have the premium padded vinyl that match the rest of the interior, and have an armrest for long haul comfort. The simple but easy-to-read gauges are arranged ahead of the driver, and seem to be in original condition, as well as the factory steering wheel. In fact, this pickup has a nice original feel right down to the AM/FM radio, heat/defrost controls, and nicely presented walnut trim pattern.The 360 cubic-inch V8 looks great under the hood with its big blue block, proper blue " Ford" valve covers, and even the blue air cleaner. It's a standout package that looks like it's radiating power out of the engine bay. But more than just bold looks, the V8 was rebuilt only about 34K miles ago (although it looks and runs as fresh as it was 34 days ago). This optional larger motor means a sweeter rumble out of the dual exhaust, and it offers extra pulling power if you want to use this vintage Ford to tow the toys. But even just as a cruiser, this pickup is quite appealing. The three-on-the-tree manual transmission gives you all the control you could want over the V8, and the twin I-beam front suspension is the perfect solution for both comfort and strength.The market for vintage F-Series pickups is hot right now, so the best way to standout is with a very sold truck that's been cared for like a time capsule. And at this price, you know it will be gone soon. Call today!!
