Cruisin’ Smooth in This 1959 Ford F-100

Ford made some drastic styling changes to their venerable F-100 truck in 1957; a body style that would stick around only until 1960 before another redesign.

Long unappreciated in comparison to their predecessors, as well as the trucks that followed, is the third-generation Ford F-100 trucks, which don’t often pop-up for sale on the second-hand market. Take that as a good or a bad thing…

While there aren’t many trucks for sale, there are even less trucks as nice as this 1959 F-100; a real cream puff in its teal and white livery. Classic steel wheels with chrome caps complete the look, especially when they’re wrapped in rather wide, white sidewall tires. The lack of chrome works quite well with this body style, giving it a clean look. This is as smooth as it gets. It invites you to cruise listening to your favorite tune!

The original Ford 292 V8 still rests under that wide hood, and was rebuilt a couple of years ago for power and reliability. Many of the other mechanicals have been refreshed or replaced, including the brakes, generator, and relay, ensuring that she runs as good as she looks. Certainly no complains there.

At an asking price of $14,000 bucks, this ’59 isn’t commanding the big bucks that a second-generation in this condition would. Considering the fact that you don’t see nearly as many of these on the road, that seems like a fair price to pay for such a fine and smooth specimen.

Do you agree?
