This 1969 Ford F-100 is Class Personified
The word “class” has a number of definitions. It can refer to different categories of things or people, a group of students, or a system of ordering. In the case of this 1969 Ford F-100, however, we use class as an adjective – to describe the stylish excellence it possesses in spades.
Aqua Blue was an excellent paint choice for this body style, and the owner wisely chose to carry it over to the steel wheels. Wide whites may not be the first choice for most Ford trucks of this vintage, but in this case they look awesome as part of the overall package. Again, following with the whole, class, theme.
The interior is likewise subtle and classy, with mostly original trim and what appears to be a recovered seat. The old-school black and white combination provides a nice contrast to the brightly colored exterior. The Hurst shifter is a subtle nod to 60’s/70’s hot rodding, and a bit of a jewel in an otherwise workhorse’s cabin.
Power comes from a 360, with a 3-speed manual transmission resting under ab old school shifter. Quite a bit of work has been done to bring the old girl back to life, with a two-year-old restoration during which the trim, glass, and chrome were all replaced. It’s no concourse job, but it’s certainly nice enough. If you’re in the market for a classy Ford F-100 such as this one, bid away here!
