Stored 14 Years: 1967 Ford F-100 Ranger

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

Ford introduced the F-Series of trucks in 1948 and they have yet to leave the scene. In fact, in most years since the F-Series has been the industry’s best-selling pickup. This F-100 from 1967 was found in a barn last year where it had likely been since 2010. Some work was done to get it going, but more will be needed, at least for it to be a daily driver. Located in Boulder, Colorado, this old workhorse is offered by a dealer here on eBay with a no-reserve auction. The current ante is just $1,625.

The F-Series is currently in its 14th generation, with the 5th coming from 1967 to 1972. That incarnation wasn’t totally new – using the same platform that debuted in 1965. The trucks were a little bigger and more engine choices were available to buyers. Also, they got a little fancier, such as the seller’s truck with the Ranger trim package. We’re told this pickup was in the same family since 1970 and parked in the barn 14 years ago, it’s last year of registration.

To get the truck rolling again, the seller installed new tires, performed a tune-up, added a new battery and ignition switch, and installed a temporary fuel cell (that suggests the whole fuel delivery system from the gas tank to the carburetor will need further attention). The odometer reading is just shy of 7,000 miles, but 107,000 is more likely but not confirmed.

The body and interior look fair for the age of the pickup and may be okay if all you want is a driver. The brakes are going to need to work, too, and both the 352 V8 engine and automatic transmission have leaks. But at least it starts and likely lot drives so you’re not totally at ground zero with this as a project. But bring a trailer because the dealer will not provide a temporary tag as it’s not road-ready. But the wooden front bumper is an interesting touch!

    This would have been a well-equipped truck in its day. Ranger trim level, Camper Special, automatic. This generation of Ford pickups are popular restorations. I’m pretty sure one of the first things I would do is buy a new front bumper.

      I once had a gun rack in a ’68 Chev pickup, but a cop with an axe to grind had me remove it.
      That was my first exposure to that state of things.

    I have had 3-4 of these old trucks like this, they are definitely a working truck for almost whatever you want to get done. Not sure if LMC truck or some other sites still offer a replacement tank. If this was a short box in this condition the price would probably be double current bid because of people turning them into hot rod trucks.

    Awesome truck! ‘67 many people don’t realize that ‘67 was a transition year. Last year for the 352, (and Overdrive),also door handles were the old school pull up style. ‘68 up were integral to the armrest. Last year with no smog apparatus. First year for Ranger trim level. This truck has a lot going for it. Hope someone gives it the love it deserves.

    This looks like it was used to tow/push a race car (dragster?).That front bumper was used to push,& looks like it had a camper on it.
