1966 Ford F-100 Is a Two-Tone Beauty
Ford trucks from the ’60s are infinitely customizable. But we wouldn’t change a thing on this stunning ’66!
Ford trucks from the ’60s are all the rage these days. These sharp looking pickups make excellent cruisers, after all. And if you want to upgrade things like the suspension and drivetrain, options are nearly limitless. But in reality, you don’t have to do much to make anything from this time period a cool cruiser. Just take this stunning 1966 Ford F-100, for example.
We spotted the two-tone beauty over at The Classic Car Network, where its unique paint job initially caught our attention. It isn’t often you see this sort of two-tone scheme on trucks from this era, but it sure does look good. The white midsection starts below the stock chrome trim and follows the curves of the fenders, breaking up the lines of this pickup rather nicely.
Essentially the only real deviation from stock on the outside is a set of newer F-150 chrome wheels, which are wrapped in white-letter Firestone tires. Otherwise, the seller of this 1966 Ford F-100 says that it was treated to a frame-on restoration, and we have no reason to doubt that. Everything looks extremely tidy outside and in, where you’ll find a gorgeous deep red and black interior. There’s nothing frivolous here, but air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes are nice amenities.
The original 352 V8 still sits under the hood, providing enough power for cruise night. But the owner did add dual exhaust to give it a nice little rumble. With an automatic transmission handling the gears, it’s easy to see why trucks like this 1966 Ford F-100 have become so popular. They have timeless looks, they’re easy to work on, and they’re infinitely customizable right out of the box. But in this case, we wouldn’t change a thing!
