1967 ford F-100 needs a paint job...recommendations? Denver area

I have a 1967 F-100 w/ inline Six and it needs a paint job badly. Most paint places do not do older vehicles, seems they just want to make the quick buck off the insurance guys. I need a person that appreciates the classics and will paint my truck. Please help me find someone.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Hey Scott, let me drop a few for you....

Matrix Auto, just off Evans and Santa Fe
Hopps auto body, just off Hampden and Santa Fe.
Bear Creek Auto Body, Hampden and Kipling.

Just a few I have experienced and are great to work with... The gang at Hopps do hot rods.

Precision Auto Works did mine and he's done some awesome classic ones as well. he works out of his back yard but he does great work.
Here's how mine looks (it used to be green):

He does great work! His name is Mark Godard, his number is 303-937-3815 or 720-314-6053. he's around Mississippi and Wadsworth, if that helps.
Tell him Matt Adams sent you. He knows who I am, my truck was there for 2-3 months LOL.

really? Sorry to hear that. ARe you looking for anything custom or just a straight repaint? I know uni-tec on santa fe and hampden does some awesome work too, but if you are just looking for a basic repaint... tough to say...

Looking for some thing quick and inexpensive....about $1500.00 to $2000.00. Have quite a bit of surface rust and needs a good sanding. I wish they had stalls you could rent like in the military around here, that would be sweet!

I just had my 67 repainted and it cost me $8K. It also took them almost a year to turn it around since like you said, they only want to do insurance work. They would only work on mine when it was slow in thier shop. Mine was a little high because we did a complete restoration, inside the cab, under the bed, etc. The kind of paint job your looking for is maybe more in the league of Macco or Earl Shibe, I've heard you can get a decent paint job from them if you do all the prep work and then bribe the painter with a case of beer to take special attention to your paint job. But as far as a full service body shop, 1500 won't cover the cost of materials. As far as a place you could use to spray it yourself, there is a place on Sante Fe blvd called Painter's supply or something like that and they may have paint booths you can use. Hey Mike G, you live on the south side of town, do you know the place I'm thinking of?

Painter's Supply is indeed on south Santa Fe, about two blocks south of Hampden on the west side of the road. That is where I do all of my shopping. They don't have booths, but there is a guy in the warehouse district at Santa Fe and Union that rents them out. He charges $150 for a 1/2 day and $300 for a full day.
