Faux Five-O: 1967 Ford F100 Custom Cab – Sold?
August 9, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this Ford “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
July 28, 2021 Update – The private seller of this vintage Ford pickup just lowered their asking price by two thousand dollars from $16,000 to $14,000.
One of the largest inline-six-cylinder engines ever produced was Ford’s 300 cubic inch mill first launched in 1965. A long-stroke version of Ford’s earlier 240 cubic inch engine, the 300 is known in Ford circles for both its torque and reliability. With this respect in mind, we were glad to find the builder of this restored and mildly customized 1967 Ford F-100 Custom Cab Long Bed originally listed in July 2021 on Craigslist in Red Lion Pennsylvania (York) resisted the urge to swap out this truck’s original I6 for V8. In fact, they doubled down on the engine by boring it out by thirty thousandths, which by our math means the six-cylinder in this truck now displaces 302 cubic inches or 5,0 Liters. Offered at $16,000 currently. Comparing that price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the private seller has their F-100 priced between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $13,000 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $21,300.
In addition to the interesting choice of power in this F-100, we like the paint choice, Vintage air conditioning upgrade, and interior fabric choice despite what appear to be minor burn marks in the driver’s seat cushion.
Here’s the seller’s description:

Owned many F150’s with the 300 6 Cylinder. Great motor!
I’ve owned many Ford pickups in the last 40 years, started out with a 73 two door F-250 which I put a camper on and enjoyed the great Alaska outdoors, it was rear wheel drive and winter driving was a bit dicy at times. I also owned a diesel F-250 great truck but the cost of diesel fuel got to expensive. Next came a 2002 Chevy 1500, good truck but it to was expensive to drive. I’ve had three more Ford F-150’s since then all great trucks, down to just one now but would love to get another one which would serve two purposes, use it like a truck and take it to local car shows.
