New from Arizona

I've been a member here for a while, but this is my first post. I've always been a Ford fan, and just recently bought a 2011 Ford F-150 XL with the V6 auto and 43,000 miles. I also have a 1969 Ford F-100 that I'm in the slow process of restoring.
I've had several other Ford trucks in the past (2) 1965 F-100, 1966 F-250, 1971 F-100, 1979 F-150, 1990 F-150, plus a 1969 and 1970 Econoline vans and a 2008 E-350(traded that off for the 2011 F-150). Have also owned quite a few Ford cars too.

Here is the 2011 Ford


The 1969 F100

Welcome Counrtyford That's a couple of nice F150's, especially your older one the body is in some damn good shape for that year. Course I am sure your enjoying the new one.

Long time Ford fan, nothing wrong with that. I can see why you would consider restoring it, the inside dash brings me way back to my parents old Ford trucks.

I am sure you might see some more pics like that as you navigate around the forum. So have fun and enjoy FTE!

Thank you. The 1969 I bought about 3 years ago. It was bought brand new here in Phoenix, AZ and has spent its entire life here. The paint is original, with the exception of the bed and driver's side door. I think it was in an accident sometime in it's history and was hit on the driver's door and bed. I don't know for sure, but have some things that support my theory. The bed and driver's door show a different color of green underneath the paint. Only places on the truck with that other paint underneath. The bed appears to be from a 70. The 69's second tank filler was above the trim, whereas the 70 and mine has it below the trim. Also the 70 Custom has the "Custom" script on the rear of the bed above the trim, the 69 didn't. Mine does. Lastly the vin tag on the driver's door is missing. I found it on the frame to varify that it matches with the title.
My truck is the "Heavy Duty Special". It has a decal on the front fender on each side. They are partially gone. I need to go see a decal shop and see if they can reproduce them. I haven't been able to find any on ebay. I also have the original dealer decal script on the tailgate. It is almost faded gone. Need to do the same with that.

The 2011 I just got last week. It had the bottom of the line stock steel rims with the center moon hubcap. They (The Ford dealership) were going to put new tires on it, since the ones on it were shot. When they called up their service department, they mentioned they had someone purchase a 2013 Ford Lariat, but wanted bigger tires and it jacked up. So they had the Lariat rims with the tires that had less than 100 miles, just lying around. He asked if I would want them on my truck. I of course said "YES!!!" I think the new rims add to the truck.

Hmmm I wonder if some of the members here with some of the classic vehicles might be able to help you with your decal issue, you may wan't to check around the site or even make a pst about it and see, there are more than a few here I am sure that have done some restoration work, so someone might have a lead or two for you.

Well you have to like your luck with the tires and rims, most people would take the originals anyways and throw em in the garage or on craigslist or Kijiji or something... and you managed to scoop, good deal I would say.

I would say the rims look good, and at that deal you got I doubt I would have passed it up either.

On the 69, I'm going to put the stock rims back on. I have a set, I just need to paint them, plus get new tires for them. The ones on the truck are a bit larger than what it should have.

As far as the 2011, I would have taken the truck with the other rims, but am pleased I didn't have to shell out the extra $$ to purchase nicer rims for it(I would have eventually).
