There’s Nothing Like an ‘Ole Two-Tone Ford F-100

By -


Retro styling will always be cool, and if it isn’t, just wait a little bit longer. This is true not only in the world of fashion and cartoons, but in the automotive realm as well. As the saying goes, what’s old is new again.

The classic lines of 60’s Ford trucks are a perfect example, though one can argue that they have never gone out of style. You don’t see a lot of these things with heavily customized bodies, simply because you don’t need to mess with perfection.


That doesn’t mean you can’t tastefully add a little retro class to one, as the owner of this 1966 two-tone F-100 did. The paint job features a good bit of custom work that helps it simulate the look of an old-school shop truck that looks ready to go on a parts run, even today.

It’s a nice touch that has been complemented by a set of appropriately retro Torq Thrust wheels, along with a two-tone interior that matches the exterior colors. The 352 remains stock, but disc brakes have been added at all four corners to aid in slowing the rig down.


This ’66 is further proof that classic Ford trucks make perfect shop trucks, even today. While everybody else is running around town in a boring new XL or a white panel van, you can set your business apart by driving something retro cool – something like this classic example.
