Hey Cool Car Fans,
As The Cool Car Guy, I get to see some really cool rides on a regular basis and this truck that is owned by a guy who contacted me to let me know he was selling it I thought was too cool to not feature here at CoolCarGuy.com.
Especially, when he told me what he had done to the vehicle and how much he was looking to get for it. I told him that I would showcase it on my site and write an article about it to see if any of my visitors had an interest in it, since he’s trying to get into a home and needs to find a new home for this classic ride.
Here’s what he shared with me about his truck…
Here are some photos of my really nice 1964 Ford F-100. It is the former show truck for Rockford Fosgate and has over 25k invested in it. It’s the perfect turn-key Sunday driver with less than 6k mi on everything. In fact, I drove it only 20 miles or less every weekend to cruise nights or go to dinner on nice evenings.
The motor is a fresh rebuilt 302, with a brand new automatic transmission in 2012 that cost over $3,000 and now it chirps 2nd at 6,200ft elevation where I live. It includes, new headers, custom 2 chamber side exhaust, (SOUNDS AMAZING! but not too loud), a new suspension, a custom radiator, custom gages, custom flip face Pioneer CD stereo with 8″ subs and direct iPod attachment with in dash controls, with low profile tires and custom wheels.
It has a new battery, really cool looking blue LED volt meter, and professionally rolled and shaved body work with an awesome Charcoal Metallic paint highlighted with a very faint ghost flame on the lower front fenders. The truck really does run and drive great and is absolutely perfect for a night out cruising just as it is.
Like any older truck that has been rebuilt, there are a few small items that can be done to it down the road for the new owner. The gauges light up and are powered, but they are not hooked up and the shaved outer door handles are not hooked up yet either. It used to have powered auto opening doors but they removed all that gear when I bought the truck 8years ago and I never bothered to reconnect it, so that is an option.
The body is perfectly straight with some small road chips, a couple small door dings and light scratches since the paint is nine years old and it still looks amazing as you can see from the photos. The drip rail above the front window has small bubbles, (this is very common unless you shave off the drip rail), there is some pitting and water marks on the rims, but nothing major and the tires still have plenty of tread left.
The only reason why I’m selling this vehicle is to buy a new house so my loss is your gain. I’m going to miss this truck because it is awesome and I have never found another one like it! It runs and drives excellent and always has people checking it out or giving me a thumbs up. You really have to see it to appreciate it and thanks for putting it on CoolCarGuy.com to help me find a buyer.
I think that with the small items addressed it could be worth $25,000, but I don’t have time to work on it before we close on the house. Let me know if you have a buyer for it and thanks again.”
If you’re looking for a cool vehicle to cruise around in or add to your collection just let me know and I’ll get you more information about it. He may sell it on his own fairly quickly, but he asked me if I could assist him by featuring it here on CoolCarGuy.com. I wanted to showcase his ride and have him share some of the information about it, since it’s a classic and very hard to find truck that is currently available for under $16,500.
Drop me an email if you want more information about it. If you’re looking for a sweet classic truck from the 1960’s era this is worth investigating further.
