Nice V8 Project! 1960 Ford F-100

The 3rd generation of the Ford F-series pickups saw a pretty dramatic styling change from the previous years. Long gone were the “fat fenders” and curves of the 48-56, which were replaced with sharper lines, flat panels, and an overall larger appearance. This particular truck is a 1960, which was the last year of the 3rd gen trucks. It can be found for sale here on eBay with an asking price of $2,000. While these trucks continue to go up in value, the low asking price for this one may be due to the fact that it doesn’t have a title. Located in Garden Valley, Idaho, it looks like a decent project. Depending on how easy it is to get a replacement title in your area, this truck might be the perfect one for you. Check out more.

Based on the door panels, the white exterior paint has probably been added by someone along the way. The interior looks pretty typical of a truck of this era. Simple and bare, they don’t have a lot of frills. Although trucks were becoming a bit more passenger-friendly, they were still workhorses.

The engine is a V8 (obviously). The seller doesn’t say the size, but it is likely a 272 or 292. Note the interesting way the exhaust is routed over the front of the engine. The ad does say that the previous owner told the current seller that it ran when parked. The transmission is a 3-on-the-tree. Along with no title, there is no key either. That’s not a big deal though, places like LMC Truck offer ignition and key sets that are very easy to install.

The look of these 3rd generation Ford trucks is a love it/hate it with most people. When done well, these trucks can be really cool. This one will take a bit of work but looks solid from the photos. How about you? Do you like the styling of these trucks?

    Had same setup back in the day. Turquoise, white bumpers and white wall tires. Wood side racks, wish I could find a picture, she was a looker. And I put 3″ chrome exhaust tips on her, miss my 60 Chevy 2 door wagon, Norton and 63 Comet ragtop too !

    The ’57-’60 Fords were among my favorites. I like them more than the rounded Effies that came out before them. However, I wouldn’t kick either one off my driveway. Restoration would be the way for me. Bone stock, right down to the std. 2bbl. carb. I see that someone stuck a 4bbl on this so there’s a good chance someone dropped in a 312. Unfortunately, unless you’re going run headers or Ram’s Horns you’re going to be stuck with the forearm burner because the LH factory dual manifold is going to point directly at the steering box. Fix it and drive it; that’s the way to go…

    Nice solid truck. FYI…pop out that ignition and take it to your local locksmith. He’ll have a key for you in a matter of minutes, that way it should not be necessary to then have to change out the door locks, too.
    The truck looks to have a lot of life left and the price is good, title or no title.

    I have used the locksmith process multiple times in past and a cheap fix.

    The title is three options:
    Best legal approach..
    Salvage title process with state police 👮‍♀️

    Medium risk alternatives approach..
    texas title company or similar process to get it but it might get a salvage back on title depending on state ..

    shady approach…
    Any friends living in BOS states you know really well? Its the OTR gift car and buy back for a buck with BOS print out with vin numbers on form…
    This of course is not a ethical approach and not condoned in any way 😉.
    One could just pretend your living in DC on Pennsylvania ave and then its very acceptable business practices evidently these days to be shady I’ve rear🤔😏😂

    For sure this truck started out in Chrome Yellow….could have been a county service vehicle. Had a ’60, bought in CA, in the ’80’s. Drove it the low route to NYC and high route back to LA – never missed a beat!

    I like what Geomechs said. But I’ve never met a Ford truck I didn’t like.
    God bless America

    Lots of potential for not a lot of money. Wish it was closer but the good ones almost never are. No title, no problem in Connecticut; just need a bill of sale.

    These were the best years of the ford truck for me!! The body had such an original style like no ford before it and still incorporates that style in today’s trucks!! Bigger cab more leg room!!!

    I know a little about Ford trucks as that was my dad’s norm but I don’t know when Ford went to the twin I beam front suspension. Dad, along with a lot of other older dudes and myself included felt that idea ate front tires up, from experience of course.
    Neat old truck and yes, they really were basic work trucks back then, no frills at all. Even the seventies pick ups seem spartan compared to the expensive new trucks. Guy tried to sell me one similar to this when I was still in high school, someone had dropped a 429/C6 in it…..had problems I didn’t need but it sure was quick…..and thirsty!

    Ford introduced the twin I beam front suspension in 1965.
