352 V8/4-Speed: 1967 Ford F-100 Pickup

While short wheel base trucks bring more money, it is the long wheel base pick ups that do the work! Larry D. sent us this 1967 Ford F100 long bed pickup to check out. It is for sale here on eBay. There are 2 days remaining in the auction and the bids are only up to $3,000. The F100 truck is located in Eureka, Montana and looks to be a solid driver. This blue truck looks to be fairly original except for the aftermarket wheels and tires.IT is equipped with a V8 engine and 4 speed.

The interior looks pretty good and is the normal spartan, no fluff interior for a base F100 pick up. The F100 denotes that the truck is a 1/2 ton pickup the V8 engine is backed by a 4 speed floor shifted manual transmission. The seat looks good but I am a little confused by the picture because it appears the bottom of the seat is vinyl and the top of the seat is cloth. The ash try in the center of the dash appears to be missing.

The seller states that the truck is equipped with a  352 cubic inch V8 engine. This engine was introduced in trucks in 1965 and was replaced by the 360 cubic inch V8 in 1968. The engine compartment looks pretty clean. The eBay ad says that the engine runs OK and recently received a new carburetor, distributor, fuel pump and timing chain after which a tune up was conducted. You would think after all that was done, the engine would run better than OK. The seller does reveal that the engine does not smoke.

The engine compression figures are included in the description and said to range from 95-110 lbs. I am not sure if that is good to range that much. Maybe a Ford enthusiasts can let us know in the comments. Unfortunately, this is the second time the seller has had to list the vehicle because of a non paying winning bidder.  The eBay seller says at the end of the description that this is not his truck and is selling for a friend. The truck is also for sale locally.

    Doesn’t look bad. It doesn’t look rusty, and there is much to be said for that. And if it has spent its life in Montana, that would make sense. Not the more desirable short wheelbase but it could be made into a pretty cool truck.

    I think it is the radio which is missing. I seem to remember that pull-out ashtray with its coarse metal-to-metal slides on my dad’s 1970 F-100. He didn’t smoke so he kept pens in the ashtray.

    And one more thought: I don’t think the engineers tried hard enough, seems they could have made that shifter a few inches longer, so it could look more like the one per the old Rat Fink cartoon character.

    Thanks Bruce.

      That’s correct. The ashtray is there, between the cluster and radio opening.

      My dad’s 67 F100 had a three on the tree, but my 1977 F150 4×4 had the four speed with the same shift arrangement. Granny gear first was up against the dashboard but you really never used it. The problem was reverse…push the lever towards the passenger door and back against the seat. Fine unless carrying three, or having a baby seat in the middle. LOL! My infant son kicked it out of 4th gear once.

        My son kicked my 1970 into gear. It was adding at a job site and it took every off. Fortunately it ran into a 1000 pound plate compactor and stalled.

    I have a 67 F250 high boy that came similarly equipped 352V8 with a NP 4 speed. Bob is correct it is the radio or radio block off plate that is missing. If you look close you can see the tilt out ash tray between the radio location and the gauge cluster. I need a new body, I should buy this truck and still may check into it.

    Ford’s compression yardstick for years was the lowest reading cylinder should be within 75 percent of the highest one. On this particular truck it would mean no cylinder should produce less than 82.5 PSI. So, the range of 95 to 110 PSI means everything’s OK.
