Sunny Greens: 1965 Ford F100 Restored – Sold!
January 21st Update – we just noticed the seller of this pretty F100 we first featured on December 17th now has a fresh post with the price lowered from $15,000 to $13,500. We’ve updated the link below. Good luck with the purchase!
In our humble opinion, Caribbean Turquoise over white remains over of Ford’s best color combinations for their F-100 trucks such as this 1965 example we came across here on Craigslist in Pinebush, New York which the current caretaker is asking $15,000 for. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide confirms the seller now has their F-100 priced $1,500 above the #3 “Good” appraisal of $12,000.
While Ford produced its fourth generation F-100 line of pickups from 1960 through 1966, in October 1964, the 1965 F-Series featured an all-new frame that would be used on the F-Series through 1979. Oddly, the body remained largely unchanged save for the 1965 and 1966 models having turn signals mounted above the headlights. The new frame replaced the rudimentary straight-axle of the prior model years with all-new independent “Twin I-Beam” suspension with coil springs on two-wheel-drive trucks. The 1965 and 1966 F-Series trucks are distinguished with a “TWIN I-BEAM” emblem on the front fender.
Not only is this restored F-100 in a pretty color combination, we like the subtle upgrades the restorer used to upgrade this truck. The most obvious under hood is the dual circuit brake master cylinder which we hope even puts disc brakes up front. The dashboard appears to have an upgraded stereo. Hopefully, the “Sunny Green” logos are the doors are easily removed. About the only thing we’d change out before the Spring are the chrome spoke Cragar wheels with a period-correct poverty cap style and perhaps add a Vintage Air unit for more comfortable cruising. Good luck with the purchase!
