This Super Clean 1968 F-100 Really Hits the Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot

Sixties Ford trucks are blazing hot right now, and subsequently, a whole lot of them are popping up for sale everywhere. Some are fully restored, some are heavily customized, and others are total basket cases. The sweet spot exists in the daily driver range, those trucks that are cosmetically clean and mechanically sound, yet not too terribly expensive.

Sweet Spot

This 1968 F-100 is a perfect example of that sweet spot. The boxwood green and Wimbledon white paint is fresh, the body is in excellent condition, the bumpers have been refinished, and the trim is new. Wheels are courtesy of a newer F-150, and they are wrapped in larger than stock rubber – fitting for a 4×4.

Things inside have been refreshed as well with a new seat cover, carpet, dash pad, sill plates, and headliner. There’s also new weatherstripping in the doors to eliminate the ugly cracks and keep the elements out.

Sweet Spot

Power comes in spades thanks to a 390 Ford motor, backed up by a 4-speed manual transmission.  This is also a power steering and power brakes truck, which have been redone recently as well.  Overall, this is a great looking and solid ’68.  With all the good options, this short wheel-base 4×4 hits the sweet spot!
