1974 F-100 SuperCab Project: FTE Marketplace Find

By -

Classic Ford vehicle has seen better days, but it could be a solid base for a project truck.

It seems that single cab, short bed F-100s are the preferred configuration for classic Ford truck restomods. However, this 1974 F100 offered for sale in our forum Marketplace offers a compelling opportunity for someone to dare to be different.

This truck, located in Highland, Arkansas, is a two-wheel-drive SuperCab with a long bed. You might think it’s an unusual choice for a project, but we think it would make a cool tow rig or a parts hauler. In fact, with the SuperCab, you could fit three of your best buddies in the truck with you.

We’re not sure what color this truck was originally, but whatever paint was applied by the factory in 1974 appears to be long gone now. The bare metal gave way to surface rust, which appears to have perforated in a few areas. Still, some shots of the undercarriage are provided by the seller (forum user ash_flat_diesel), and it looks solid overall. It’s a blank canvas for the next owner to do as they please.

This 1974 F100 is powered by the FE-series 360 cubic inch V8, good for 201 horsepower and 376 lb/ft of torque. It apparently runs and drives, but the automatic transmission is leaking, and judging by the condition of the exterior, the entire chassis and drivetrain could likely use some attention.

So, what would we do if we picked this up? Probably a nice two-tone paint job, maybe red and white. Get it in the weeds on an air bag suspension, and go with some staggered white-painted steelies—as wide as we can go in the back.

If you’re looking for a project, it’s offered for sale in our forums for $2,500. What would be your plan for this truck?
