Engine 292 cu in V8 200 HP
Transmission 3 Speed Manual Column Shift
This F100 is a 2 wheel drive, short bed, style side pickup. The paint is in pretty good shape with a few sand scratches visible and only a small number of scratches and chips. All of the glass is in good condition including the wide, wrap-around rear window. The door windows roll up and down properly.
All lights work correctly.
The interior has been completely reworked and looks nice though not original style. All metal parts including dash have been painted burgundy. The carpet was replaced and looks very good. The seat has been reupholstered and is a pleated pattern and looks very good.
The gauges look good and seem to work correctly. There is an aftermarket radio mounted under the dash and it works.
The engine is a 292 ci in V8 and it does run. It is weak on cylinders 1,4,6 and 7. The compression is good. This could be a carburetor or intake manifold issue but not sure. It has a rebuilders tag attached to the block. The transmission is a 3 speed manual with column shift. It seems to operate correctly.
The brakes stop the car but it is due for front shoes and one front and one rear wheel cylinder are starting to leak. It would be recommended to rework the whole brake system with master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes, rubber hoses and possibly metal lines.
The front tires are 215/75R15 radials and the rear tires are H78-15 M&S.
There is pitting on all of the emblems and some dings and scratches on headlight trim and grille work in hood. The main grille looks good with the exception of a small ding in the center. It has been repainted at one time and has rust repair on both rear cab corners in the step area. It also has rust bubbles in the lower section of both doors. The frame has rust on both sides at the rear spring front mount.
The truck has 2 keys that work the door locks and ignition and 2 for the locking gas cap. There are no tire changing tools, no operator’s manual and no spare tire. This car has been part of a large private car collection for many years. All for tires have tread and would display ok but they were all produced before 2000 so they would need to be replaced before driving the truck.
