This 1966 Ford F-100 is a Clean Cherry Red Cruiser

By -


Is there possibly a nicer cruiser than a cherry red vintage Ford truck? They check all the boxes: timeless looks, presence, and reliability. They are blank canvases that can be transformed into basically anything your heart desires and your wallet allows.

This 1966 F-100 is a great example of the perfect boulevard cruising machine. It looks fantastic with a nice shade of cherry red, shiny chrome, and vintage Cragar wheels. The low stance comes courtesy of a twin I-beam suspension setup.


Inside, things are clean and simple with fresh upholstery, a steering column-mounted shifter, and a full-blown aftermarket stereo setup. Dual-side exiting exhaust has been added, and the custom diamond-plated gas tank has been relocated to the bed.


Perhaps the coolest and certainly most unique aspect of this truck is its powerplant. Instead of the typical small-block Ford, this ’66 has a built inline-six-cylinder under the hood, bored out to 306 cubic inches. It features a host of performance parts, including a Clifford intake and Holley carburetor to up the power.


The cherry on top is the fact that it’s won a few trophies, has been featured on the cover of the LMC truck catalog, and it’s easy to see why – this is one of the cleanest 66’s we’ve ever seen, and it’s just begging to be shown.
