Description 1970 Ford F-100 Sport Custom, 302 V-8, C4 Automatic, 86k miles, Original, Nice!!

Beautiful Original 1970 Ford F-100 Sport Custom Pickup,
87k miles, Original 302 V8 w/ Autolite 2V carburetor, C4 3-spd Automatic, and
3.25 ratio differential. Excellent condition! This truck has been the recipient
of a recent comprehensive mechanical freshening and upgrading. Every mechanical
system has been gone through, and either rebuilt or replaced in an effort to
make the truck 100% reliable and operational.

Cosmetically this truck is in amazing original “Survivor” condition.
The paint is all original, with the exception of the hood and front fenders and
in very good condition. The entire body and floorboards are 100% rust free, and
perfectly solid. Front fenders are corrosion free and solid, as is the entire
truck. The interior is completely original and excellent, including seats,
floor covering, headliner, and door panels. The original build sheet was found behind the seat, and is included in the sale. The original Firestone “Champion
Deluxe” spare tire still hangs timelessly in the original location, appearing
to have never been on the ground. Amazing!

This F-100 was sold new at Guthrie Malone Ford in Boaz, AL.
It has remained in Boaz, AL for the last 46 years. It still has the dealer
installed steel rear bumper with the dealer’s name and city engraved on the
face. It was traded in at what became Alexander Ford in Boaz,
AL, and then was purchased by a gentleman who
lived in nearby Albertville,
AL. It wears an Alexander Ford
decal on the tailgate, which is still in place. It was purchased earlier this
year by the current owner from the owner in Albertville, AL.
Since then every system has been gone through in an effort to make the truck
100% reliable. It has been a fun and rewarding project on a very deserving
vintage Ford truck.


Here is a list of service items and maintenance performed

Purolator filter, Zinc add

New fan belt


In addition to the mechanical freshening, other small
things have been done like replacing all the hardware on the mirrors with
stainless steel hardware, greasing all the front suspension points with L-M
moly grease, stripping and repainting the valve covers, air cleaner assembly, 4
blade fan, and fan pulley. A new Optima battery (red top) has been installed,
and a new correct reproduction battery hold down added.

This F-100 wears it’s original intake manifold, original
carburetor,  original choke assembly, original
coil, original points distributor, original exhaust manifolds, original 2-1
exhaust mid section, and single muffler exhaust system. Everything is
functional and working correctly. The body fit is excellent, and the doors open
and close beautifully, as do the hood, and tailgate. It has all the original
glass with the exception of the windshield which has recently been replaced
along with the seal. The side windows roll up and down easily and smoothly, and
the door locks works smoothly with a solid feel.

This truck starts easily cold or hot, idles smoothly and
accelerates briskly. The carburetor and factory choke are adjusted correctly
and they work perfectly, even in cold temperatures. The transmission is original,
and shifts smoothly and quietly. The entire truck drives amazingly well with
good straight line tracking, strong braking, strong driveline, and solid
construction. It handles and rides very well being just 4500 GVW, and wearing
radial tires. The Twin I-Beam front suspension really works well, and as Ford
advertised “Works like a Truck, but rides like a Car”. The 3.25 ratio rear axle
allows easy 70-80 mph freeway speeds. 

Throughout the entire process, every effort was made to preserve
and maintain the originality of this amazing truck using correct original
replacement parts or NOS parts. The upgrades to the cooling system and brakes
were essential for safer driving. Sale
includes most all the original parts that were removed.

Needless to say this F-100 gets attention and compliments
regularly, but nobody can believe it’s still a mostly original un-restored
truck. As they say “it’s only original once”. Some may be tempted to do a full
restoration, as it would be relatively easy, but the preservation route was the
direction chosen. With proper care this truck can “Survive” another 46 years.

Feel free to contact seller with any questions.
