1971 Ford F-100 Ranger is a Real Standout

By -


Ford F-Series trucks from the ’70s are among the best ever produced and there are plenty of fine examples available on the market today. With its classic black-on-black color scheme and Ranger trim, this black 1971 F-100 is one of the cleanest.


This ’71 has recently undergone a restoration, which is quite obvious by taking a look at it. Black is an unforgiving color, but there is no flawed body work to forgive here. The dark color also provides a nice contrast to all of that upper level trim and chrome.

The similarly dark interior looks great with a recovered seat, new carpet, a modern stereo, and an aftermarket three-spoke steering wheel. Power comes courtesy of a 302 that is clean enough to eat off of. That’s backed up by a rebuilt three-speed automatic transmission.


Cragar wheels and modern rubber upgrade the rolling stock, and a dual exhaust with glasspack mufflers has been added to give the truck a more aggressive sound.  Altogether, this is one nicely done truck that isn’t too over the top. It’s pretty affordable to boot.  Those qualities alone help it stand out in a fairly crowded market.
