Here’s What a $900 Ford Truck Looks Like


welcome to wacky Wednesday’s where
everyone has a chance to show off their car mods and here’s this week’s winner,
hey everybody this is my 1969 Ford f-100 360 cubic inch Ford Fe motor, two barrel
carb, 3 speed on the tree, this is a very solid truck for being 50 years old, paint
jobs not the best what do you expect for a 50 year old vehicle, I bought this
truck originally from a place here in Nashville Tennessee, I bought it for $900
actually has a rebuilt motor and the guy that owned the auto shop did not want it
anymore, didn’t want it sitting in his lot anymore, and he said for me to take
it for a thousand, I said well how about 900 and he said go for it and so ended
up with the truck, this is a I believe a Ranger I’m not a hundred percent sure on
that part but it is a long wheelbase short wheelbase are a lot more
expensive of course, this has a 15 inch tire all the way around, four nine inch
rear end, a lot of people mistake these old trucks for hiboys which highboys
came a lot taller than this from the factory, going back to the story about
having bought this truck from a mechanic shop, the guy I originally thought this
was his a high school truck that he had during the mid to late 70s and thought
it was his original truck which he said it was red at the time, and yeah like
down here and these little strap holders and back there in the bed it’s kind of
hard to see, but yeah this is a very very structurally sound truck like I said the
paint job isn’t the best, you know not really looking forward to sinking a
whole lot of money off into this thing just something that I like to drive
around on the weekends and once summer gets here take to a couple shows and stuff,
so let’s take a look at the interior
oh and if you notice too, I have two different mirrors I have the bracket in
the back of the truck for that, just really got to find a mirror, people tell
me go to O’Reilly’s but I want an original forward mirror, that’s understandable
this is the inside, I got the truck with these speakers in it I really don’t like
that, but you get to do something with it yeah that’s my that’s my speaker, now got
a crack here but you know all things you can expect out of a 50 year old vehicle
that’s in such a condition it’s been sitting for a while, we’ve got a
Bosch two I believe illuminated tachometer, and just a Sun Pro old pressure gauge
and the dash cluster isn’t in the best of shape, the odometer works 58,000 miles
steering wheel is not in the best condition, carpets fair good or whatever
you say, I have no idea what that stain is over there but I’ve tried washing it
away it’s not coming off so I have to try something a little bit stronger but
still easy on the paint, there’s my stock radio, I’m not 100
percent sure this is stock because I would think it would have an 8 tracks
original heat controls, heat works and I’m not the best but you can’t like
I said you can’t expect much of a vehicle like this, you know the classic
dice, three-speed on the tree, I consider a modern day anti-theft device most
people don’t know how to drive a three speed unless you’re 50 years or older
I’ve got a straight piped exhaust system that sounds sweet, true dual, get back here
and look at the other
side of it, yeah True dual, still have exhaust manifolds on the vehicle, just
overall fairly nice truck, now under the hood I don’t know what’s going on with
this wiring job but is not perfect, lot of this wiring was like this when I
picked up the vehicle, like the tach the tach has been recently installed you can
tell just because of how clean the wires are compared to the other ones, and that
little dinky thing right there was already on the car but I wish I had
the one that actually came on it cuz I don’t like that at all, but one
interesting thing here is wires for the tach we can see it actually come out
through one of the master cylinder bolt holes,
everything runs fine, got good oil pressure, this truck does not miss a lick,
and we’ll get a good listen of the exhaust system, like I said straight
piped, 16-inch tips, still exhaust manifolds on it no headers, maybe for a
later day, but kind of sounds good as it is right now, so let’s give it a listen
it’s a great little truck I really enjoy it, here again you know you can you can see
the red still fading through and the tops not that clean, sat under a tree at the
mechanic shop that I bought it from so it’s quite a bit of tree sap on it, it’s
hard to wash off but I’ve got most of it off from when I purchased it, good little
weekend truck I really enjoy having this truck and driving it around, the cops
don’t enjoy it too much but you know it’s a fun little piece of history I
guess you could say, it’s is an original Dearborn plant truck from you
know Michigan, so pretty cool about that, last thing I like say I want to thank
Scotty for allowing me to showcase my truck to you all, really means a lot to
me and I want to thank you everybody for watching this video and especially thanks Scotty
and wish everybody a good weekend, well that was this week’s video and to
