1972 Ford F-100 Short Box Truck: Everything Old is New Again
Two-tone vintage Ford pickup truck is a classic that’s packed with new upgrades, making it a modern day masterpiece, and it ‘drives like a new truck,’ says its current owner.
Just as we’ve all been warned to never judge a book by its cover, the same can be said about this gorgeous two-tone 1972 Ford F-100 Short Box pickup truck that we came across in the Ford-Trucks Marketplace. Never judge a truck by what’s on the outside, because this beautiful, used blue and white F-Series vehicle is as impressive on the inside and under the hood as it is on the outside.
The 1972 Ford F-100 Short Box has automatic transmission and sports “new king pins, tie-rod ends, drag link, and alignment,” says Junior User sleddog60 in his Marketplace post. “New Wheel Vintique wheels, new tires, front brakes, water pump, rag joint, steering gear assembly, radiator, padded dash arm rests, speedometer, and window regulators,” adds the St. Francis, MN-based FTE forum member.
‘It’s not a show truck, although I bring it to shows. It’s my summertime daily driver.’
This rare deal on a unique part of Ford truck history has also been upgraded with a custom Truxedo tonneau cover.
“Drives like a new truck,” promises sleddog60. “Seat is from a mid-’90s Ford truck. The engine is from a 1988 Ford Crown Victoria. It’s not a show truck, although I bring it to shows. It’s my summertime daily driver. It drives real nice, like a new truck; goes straight, all the lights work.
