This Beautiful 1972 F-100 Ford is Looking for a new Owner!

By -


Introduced in 1967, the fifth generation of Ford’s F-Series pickup rode on the same platform as its 1965 predecessor. The Twin I-Beam front suspension was so successful, in fact, that it remained in use on the F-150 until 1996. Such is the case of this beauty looking for a new owner!

Despite the carry over underpinnings, a host of changes did take place on the fifth-generation models. Overall dimensions were larger, there were more engine options, and Ford offered some plusher trim options. One of those trim levels, the Sport Custom, bowed in 1970, taking the place of the Custom Cab. These trim levels helped feed the demand for nicer, fancier trucks that has grown to absurd proportions today.


This 1972 F-100 Sport Custom is a fine example of the breed. Looking great in its unique turquoise and white paint, it seems that all of the original trim is intact, save for a set of latter model Ford wheels and modern rubber.


Under the hood lies the unloved 360 V8, backed up by a 3-speed automatic transmission. The interior features the requisite flat vinyl bench seat, a huge steering wheel (with that fantastic perforated cover), faux wood, and a rubber floor mat. It’s pure and classic 70’s Ford.


If you’re a fan of the expanded trim brought on by the disco era, this ’72 has your name written all over it. It’s a great looking truck that not only makes for a great driver in the present, but also an appreciating asset in the future.
