White Badass: 1965 Ford F-100 Short Bed Street Machine – Sold!
It’s not often we come across a classic pickup truck painted white that looks badass, but this 390 cubic inch V8 equipped 1965 Ford F100 short bed listed on Craigslist in Washington, New Jersey with an asking price of $16,500 pulls it off perfectly. Checking the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his F100 street machine priced $2,900 above the current #3 “Good” estimate of $13,600.
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.
The four video clips the private seller provides in his listing not only provide several different views of how great the 390’s exhaust sounds but also how badass this truck moves down the road. These quick video clips are a great example of how much more effective an ad can be with video included versus just pictures alone. Good luck with the purchase!
