Ok I know, not a hotrod or custom. By I do love ford pickups. I sold another truck and delivering it about 300 miles away was part of the deal. So naturally I browse Craigslist to see what’s for sale over in that area. I see this 1964 F-100 and t looked like a very nice, but dirty pickup. I called the owner and he sent me more pics and some videos that confirmed it looked like a rust free truck. It’s got a 292 and 4 speed, and owner told me he put a cam and rams horn manifolds on it with dual exhaust. Pretty bone stock aside from that. I head that way, dump the first truck off and head to this truck. It’s kind of raining and I look it over and load it up. Runs good and looks really strait...but covered in moss and such. Honestly, this was a truck that I was thinking I could try a bed shortening on, to make it a SWB. Being a 64 it’s the first year of the “matching bed”, but last year of strait axle and Y block. The perfect combo in my eyes. Dropped axle, some dress up goodies, Short bed and maybe some 5 spokes. Done. This was a decent truck but nothing special, right? Price was right, so what the hell. I got it Wednesday, got home Wednesday night. Thursday (thanksgiving) I washed it and removed the side boards. Found all the sales literature in the glove box. Looks like I’m the 3rd owner. Drove it to thanksgiving dinner. Runs and drives great. Heater works awesome. No rattles or squeaks. Paint looks mostly original. Holly Green, one of my favorites. Friday, I drive it to my dads heated shop and buff it out. I don’t think there’s a dent in it. Turned out to be a very nice, 69,000 mile truck hiding under the grime. And rust free to boot. Sold new in AZ, came to WA in 80’s and 2nd owner bought it in early 2000’s. He garaged it until a couple years ago. he still used the truck, but wife wanted a truck she could also drive. Plus the old Ford was looking kind of gross. The rest is history... So this is my 48 hour transformation.
