Garage Kept Motors is honored to present such a beautifully restored pickup. This 1966 Ford F100 Ranger comes with a sentimental backstory as well as having gone through a world class restoration. Our client's dad owned a business when he was a kid that used a Ford Ranger pickup as a shop truck. Years later, our client decided that he would try and find the same truck that he remembers seeing as a kid. He was able to find this Ford Ranger, which is finished in the same Rangoon Red/Wimbledon White color scheme as that shop truck. Street Dreams by Ross did a phenomenal job on the restoration of this truck - this classic is museum worthy. All the details are there, just the way this truck left Ford's San Jose, CA plant in late 1965.
We love the original color scheme of Rangoon Red and Wimbledon White paint (Code JM) over a red interior. As expected from a world class restoration, the exterior is in beautiful condition. All the details are dialed in: the body is straight, paint is excellent, chrome is new, and the trim looks as new. The finishing touch is the hand painted Ford lettering on the tailgate.
Red bucket seats and a console look right at home in a '66 Mustang, and look just right in this Ranger 'CustomCab'. Ranger was an option package offered on the fourth-generation F-Series pickups, rather than a separate model like we see currently. The Ranger package featured bucket seats, center console, carpeting, and carpeting that covered the fuel tank behind the seats. A sweeping needle speedometer is flanked by Fuel, Oil Pressure, Temperature, and Alternator gauges, and a two-knob AM Radio is mounted in the middle of the dashboard.
The fancy logo on the hood is a dead giveaway for what type of engine is under the hood. The optional and original 352ci/208hp V8 engine is found nestled in the engine bay. The engine and Cruise-O-Matic transmission were gone through and rebuilt. During the rebuild process, the engine and transmission parts were cleaned and refreshed. The finished product is a squeaky clean drivetrain and engine that look factory fresh. Just like the rest of the truck, the underside is extremely clean and finished to a high standard.
A gorgeous truck with a sentimental story and a world class restoration. And it runs and drives just as good as it looks with just 200 miles recorded since the restoration. With over $50k invested in the restoration alone, this museum quality classic is a bargain at the price we are asking.
