Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1962 Ford F100 pickup.
This 1962 Ford F100 has the heart of a 37,000-mile Crown Victoria and received a complete rotisserie restoration. Power comes from a 4.6-liter Modular V8 paired with a 4R70W four-speed automatic transmission, and upgrades include a Vintage Air A/C system, power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, Ridetech coilovers, power windows and seats, and more. Painted Habanero Orange Metallic over a black vinyl interior, this F100 is being sold in Arizona with restoration documentation and a clear title.
The Habanero Orange exterior of this F100 was applied during a frame-off restoration in 2021. Features include black bumpers and accents, a forward-tilting hood, smoothed bed seams, a smoothed tailgate, a rear rollpan, Frenched taillights, and a dual exhaust system.
Gloss black 18-inch wheels were sourced from a 2014 Ford Mustang GT and were wrapped in new 235/50-sized Pirelli P-Zero tires in April 2023.
Cab upgrades include late-model black vinyl bucket seats, matched to the door panels and carpeting. Features include power windows, cruise control, a tilt-adjustable steering column, and a custom center console with cup holders.
Instruments include a 160-mph speedometer, an 8K-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The digital odometer displays 1,236 miles, which the seller states is reflective of mileage accrued post-restoration. True mileage on the chassis is not known.
The 4.6-liter Modular V7 was sourced from a 37K-mile 2003 Ford Crown Victoria along with a 4R70W four-speed automatic transmission. The engine bay has been upgraded with a color-matched firewall, an engine cover, and an electric fan. Service included a recent oil change.
The boxed chassis has been powder coated and uses a Ford Crown Victoria independent front suspension system. Steering is power-assisted, and stopping power comes from power four-wheel disc brakes. Equipment includes Fat Man Fabrications control arms and Ridetech coilovers.
Restoration documents are included with the sale.
