The great thing about classics like this super cool F150 is their enlightened charm. They're essentially the automotive equivalent to Postmodern art: clean, classy and so relatable that they're pretty much timeless. Gone was the centennial focus on tribal flamboyance, yet, at the same time, that era's focus on quality and detail was still fully intact. And that's why, like Postmodern design, old school pickups are more in demand than ever! When it comes to something that's in demand, it's a wise choice to find the very best. And that's where this Ford begins to really excel. For starters, it's benefitted from a body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration. It features an impressive 460/3-speed drivetrain that cruises well and sounds killer. And it's been upgraded with niceties like modern air conditioning, modern audio and custom Ultraleather trim. Looking for an acutely restored truck that's ready to work or play? You've found your next classic!

THE CADILLAC OF F150S

Owned by the same enthusiast for the past 30 years, this familiar Ford recently benefitted from a body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration that stripped all its panels all the way down to bare metal. Once that metal was massaged and mended, classy Cadillac Light Gray Fern Metallic two-stage was laid under a collection of well-placed details. At the front of those digs, a guarded bumper reflects a polished grille, which centers discrete fog lamps between clean headlights, bright parking lamps and bold “F O R D” lettering. At the top of that grille, an “EXPLORER” branded hood leads the eye to pristine glass, which floats a sliding rear window between bright drip rails, matte wipers, retro ventshades and satin mirrors. At the sides of that glass, a tough profile parallels fresh Ranger XLT trim with satin door handles, a factory tool box and tough CARR steps. Behind that box, a tricked out bed layers Xtreme spray-on liner beneath a diamond plate tonneau. And at the back of the truck, a polished Step Bumper seats small towing lamps between a tough hitch, simple taillights and a fancy, Ford-branded tailgate.

FORD 460

Hoist the hood and you'll find 460 cubic inches of storied Ford power that's been professionally rebuilt, fully detailed and, according to the truck's owner, produces right at 550 horsepower! At the top of the big mill, wind seeps through a polished Holley air cleaner into a Lokar-controlled Holley 4-pot, which is sequenced to dual tanks via braided fluid lines. A resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake to Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, which hide under a slick pair of Ford Racing valve covers. When those heads flood the engine's cylinder banks, hot MSD 6A ignition sparks a proven MSD Pro-Billet distributor, which jostles fire between an MSD Blaster 3 coil and loomed MEGAFIRE Performance Wires. Spent gases are jettisoned through coated Hooker Super Competition tubes. A quality March serpentine drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. The big engine's cooling is provided by a deep aluminum radiator that's seated in front of corrugated hoses and Derale puller fans. And overall, the truck's sedate, Satin Black engine bay is exceptionally well done, featuring accessories like a polished breather, polished fluid reservoirs, coated hood hinges, a handy fire extinguisher and a polished master cylinder.

LIFTED LIFE

Naturally, that clean, road-ready mill precedes a clean, road-ready chassis. Everything starts with a sturdy, factory-spec frame that was soda-blasted bare during the truck's extensive restoration. Behind the 460, a reliable C6 3-speed, rebuilt with a sturdy shift kit, spins a limited-slip axle that's finished with road-ready gears. That axle pushes a fully rebuilt suspension that's been lifted three inches. Factory-style power steering makes parking easy and turns a cinch. Stops are provided by hydroboosted discs and drums. The aforementioned headers feed coated, 3-inch pipes, which are wired through tough Flowmaster 50 Series mufflers. And power meets the pavement through polished Robby Gordon beadlocks, which twist 315/70R17 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs around manual Warn hubs.

A TOUCH OF CUSTOM

When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a comfortable cockpit that, in traditional truck fashion, features tastefully conservative aesthetics. Front and center, an ornate dash, complete with attractive Ranger trim, stretches stitched Ultraleather skin over updated telemetry, modern Kenwood audio and controls for Vintage Air conditioning. Opposite that ledge, an Ultraleather bench complements customized Ultraleather door panels. That throne floats between custom, Ford-branded visors and thick, Ford-branded mats. And the driver traces turns through a Flaming River Waterfall steering wheel, which laps a tilting Flaming River column.

Fully restored, thoughtfully upgraded and ready to roll, this sweet F150 is both cool and exclusive. Wrapping proven Ford power in a buff lift and charming style, it's a timeless American icon that's ready to own the street and steal the show.
