Ford F5: Cool Retirement Driver Project
Most guys retire and buy themselves a nice sports car to enjoy. But this FTE member had something else in mind.
Ah, retirement. That magical time in life where we can finally kick back, relax, and enjoy life. And hopefully, tool around in our favorite pickups or indulge in a new project. The latter is exactly what Ford Truck Enthusiasts member ravenclaws had his eyes on, in fact. But the subject of his build, a cool Ford F5, isn’t your average retirement ride.
“I retired from the military last March. After giving it a lot of thought I have decided to get this Ford F5 from my uncle and put it on the road as a ‘rustoration’ project. I don’t know a lot about it other than the Ford dealership he purchased it from in the local area is still in operation today. They used it as a wrecker for MANY years. The last service sticker from them in the door opening is from 1982.
I am thinking a farm truck look with a low wood bed and a couple of whiskey barrels in the back. (I recently took a job as the taproom manager for a local distillery).”
