Ford F-100 1970 Description

1970 Ford F-100 Ranger two wheel drive.

Candy Apple Red over Wimbleton White with black interior.

This is a good o'l farm truck. It's been registered in the Willamette Valley since 1994 to a nearby farm. It was donated to a Veterans Charity and I bought it from a local auction. The truck literally did not run at all. And it was literally filthy dirty with years of dirt, grime and debris. However, it has been brought back to life, cleaned and rejuvenated with a lot of new parts and good o'l fashion TLC.

The truck has a number of optional Ford upgrades, like the Camper/Tow Special package, power brakes, the sturdy expandable mirrors, upgrade overload rear leaf suspension, HD radiator with trans cooler, dual fuel tanks and a frame welded load bearing hitch.

I put in a number of hours to get this truck running and reliable. The engine fires right up has plenty of power and does not smoke or burn oil. The transmission shifts normally in all gears. The truck brakes well and straight. The alignment is straight as could be.

The miles currently shows 67840. This is going up with daily use. Due to the age of the Ford and lack of full history, there is no way to know with certainty if the miles are actual 67840 or 167840. Here is a factual tidbit; There is an oil service sticker on the windshield dated 03/01/95(see photo), with the next service due at 68189. I bought the truck with 67089 miles on the odometer. Another factual tidbit; The truck still has the original bias-ply spare tire that has never been on the road. Once you examine the photos and or see the truck yourself you can then come to your own conclusion about the authenticity about the mileage and the originality of this F100.

The interior of the truck shows well. All the gauges switches and controlswork. The AM radio is original and plays stations from 100 +/- miles away. The seat is the popular Ford knit vinyl. The original rubber floor mat show minimal wear. The doors open, close and lock.The window roll up and down, vent window swing open/close. The glass has nofading or adverse wear.

This truck would be ideal for a daily driver, toy hauler, travel trailer hauler or perhaps even a resto-mod. I would trust this truck to drive anywhere. Does that mean its perfect. . . by no means. It's obviously a 47 year old truck and as with any vehicle, some parts/things will eventually wear out.

This truck tends to capture peoples eye. I've seen a number of motorists and people along the street giving me their thumbs up. I've also been approached many times by people admiring the truck and reminiscing about one they or their parents owned.


I can assist with open flat bed deliver up to 250 miles. Anything beyond that, then professional shipping would be the best option. If you choose this, then I can deliver the truck to a transportation terminal in the Portland, OR metro area. (There is a shipping tab posted above where you can see options/cost)

The other option is to fly into Portland, where we could meet to finalize the transaction where we could trade the truck and title for cash. Then you could enjoy driving the Ford home.

Market Value:

Most all short bed truck's are demanding premium prices. Consequently the demand for decent long bed trucks likethis one hasalso risen.

The buy it now price is a middle of the road price for like type condition trucks. There are a number of like year models1967 to 1972 Ford F100's selling for far more posted on this site as well as otherwell recognized sites across the Nation. Do your due diligence and hopefully you will see the value in this F100. Put your offer's in the form of bid's.
