MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer the incredible F100 Ranger you
see pictured. There is much more to this truck then what meets the eye!
This truck has lived its entire life out west from the time it rolled off
the production line in San Jose, California (Code R) to when it recently
came to us from the ultra dry state of Arizona!
The Ford F-Series truck has been sold continuously for over the past six
decades and has been incredibly successful! In 1967, the 5th generation of
F-Series pickup was introduced and built on the same platform as the 1965
revision of the 4th generation. Ford fans now had the opportunity to choose
from a variety of engine options and plusher trim levels. Also, in 1965,
the "Ranger" made its first appearance with Ford. The Ranger marquee was
used to denote a high level styling package for the F-Series pickups.
As you may notice, this truck isn't exactly your run-of-the-mill pickup.
The truck has been professionally nut and bolt restored from the frame up
and it's of the utmost quality. The exterior has been professionally
painted with DuPont Chrome Illusion Blasberry, which in various lighting
and angles, changes color from violet to blue, green to gold. There are a
few very minor imperfections to the paint -- definitely nothing that will
draw from the appearance of this hot truck. When the body was off the
frame, the frame was professionally powder-coated and looks excellent. The
undercarriage of this truck is detailed, clean and show quality!
The body is very straight and there is a rear roll pan in place of the
bumper. All of the chrome on the truck is all new, including the front
bumper, and shows very well. On the passenger side of the truck, right
before the rear wheel well, you will find a small door -- inside that door
is where the battery sits, completely protected and out of the way! The bed
is covered with a fiberglass gray vinyl tonneau cover, which looks great
and complete with the embossed Ford logo. Inside, the bed is wrapped with
gray carpet and conceals a 32 gallon fuel cell with braided fuel lines.
Inside, the interior has been tastefully updated and looks very modern. The
seats are wrapped in gray leather, as well as the steering wheel. All of
the leather is in excellent condition and continues onto the headliner with
beautifully detailed seams. The gray carpet in the floor is in great shape
as well. The dashboard houses a set of what appear to be original gauges
and an AM radio. The glass has been tinted for esthetic reasons and the
rear window is a full pane of glass. There are power windows in this truck
and there is a sunroof to let a little bit of light in!
Under the hood is where things get a little crazy. This little truck is
powered by a massive 428 cubic inch Super Cobra Jet V8, complete with
aluminum cylinder heads and dual quad Edlebrock carburetors. Since being
professionally built, there is less than 200 miles on the engine! Attached
to the powerhouse is a Ford C6 automatic transmission. There's tons of
goodies with this truck: 9" Posi-Traction rear-end, Rack & Pinion power
steering, ladder bar suspension with chrome coil overs, independent front
suspension and the new wiring harness under the hood has been neatly tucked
out of the way to keep the engine bay tidy.
The truck has a 2" spindle drop and sits upon a set of brand new 15" chrome
Crager wheels wrapped in new P245/60R15 Dunlop's in the front and
P295/50R15 Dunlop's in the back. There are 4-wheel disc brakes all around
to quickly and effortlessly stop.
This truck is not only fun to look at but it is fun to drive as well! It is
sure to draw a crowd wherever you may take it! The VIN is F10HRD29597 and
the mileage currently shows 94,835. It is being sold on a clean and clear

this engine made over 531 peak horsepower at 5700 RPM with
a very smooth power band. Exceeded 503 horsepower at 5200 and
stayed over that level beyond 6000. Peak torque was 518 lbs at 4800 RPM
and stayed above the 500 lb level from 4500 to 5300. Should be a very
strong engine in the car and make for a great deal of fun.
Edited to reflect a few extra horsepower we found in

sideways! Did not seem to hurt anything - but it never done that before...
