While a proper classic pickup can haul a ton of stuff, this 1985 Ford F-150 is also a ton of fun. Because beneath the sleeper-style vibe are upgrades like a well-built 351 V8 and a four-on-the-floor.
This pickup is almost purely incognito. You have the creamy tan paint that was almost standard issue for a work truck back in the day. The same goes for the dog dish hubcaps. And the full liner in the bed is ready for real pickup duty. But that classic cream is also a matte finish with a touch of street machine attitude. Smooth painted bumpers, deleted badging, crystal clear headlights, hot rod side mirrors, and a blackout grille with bright surround are all subtle details that this one is something a bit more. And of course, the large dual exhaust tips and lowered stance are pure sport tuck cool.
The first impression of the interior is just a clean and comfortable space. A recovered bench seat, good door panels, and newer carpeting give the fundamentals a nice feeling. And you even have some fun extras, like the sliding rear glass and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input. Plus, the full red style adds a little aggression. So does the upgraded sports steering wheel and stick shift with 8-ball topper.
The dark inner walls of the engine bay show off the bright and powerful heart in the middle. This is Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8. IT's built with the right go-fast goodies, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and shorty headers feeding into 2.5-inch dual exhaust pipes. It's also supported by the right pieces, like newer hoses, newer wires, a Pro Comp high-intensity coil, and an aluminum radiator. This V8 loves to fire up with a nice rumble from the Flowmaster mufflers, and it's a strong runner out on the streets. The four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control of it all. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for a solid all-around driver.
This custom F-150 revels in its sleeper-style presentation, and it knows how to have fun out on the streets. That makes for a unique classic pickup that you know you need to take home. Call today!!!
