Beige Beauty: A 60,000 Mile 1964 Ford F-100
One of the annoying sayings that floats around today is: “it’s only original once.” But unlike a lot of the over-used phrases you hear on reality TV car shows nowadays, this one actually has some merit to it. Blowing a truck apart and redoing everything means that you wind up with something that is, well, different.
Plus, there are always low mileage survivors popping up across the country, thanks to the folks that go barn hunting for profit. One of the nicest we’ve seen lately is this beige 1964 F-100, a west coast truck that is in remarkable condition given its age.
The lack of rust can be attributed to the ’64 living its entire life in sunny California. There’s a little bit of wear in the bed and a couple of other spots, but nothing major. It was painted beige around 20 years ago, but is otherwise as it came from the factory.
The other great thing about this truck is that it’s simple and unique – it’s a six cylinder, 3-speed, flareside model. Only around 28,000 flaresides were built in 1964, making this one even more collectible moving forward.
So while other people take perfectly nice trucks and rip out the underpowered motors and stock suspensions in favor of more modern stuff, this one deserves to be saved and left as is. And you can do just that by heading over here and placing a bid.
