Anyone own one? I have a story that goes along with why I am asking, I'm looking for an F100 or F250. 61-69 year model.
I'd love to see some photos. Anyone have one they no longer want? :) Make more room for tractors ;)
My story is about my late friend Steve Lopes. Great man, great friend, I miss him daily. Passed one year ago in about a month from now. Tough pill to swallow even today. He had a 1965 Ford F250 that he loved. Truck was garage kept, and it was a looker! He & I are Ford men, and he didn't always get along with everyone from the fire dept, but he got along with me. We'd sit around talking Fords, just agreeing with one another.
it got to the point where my now ex g/f would call him "future me". He was 55 & I'm 30, we just clicked. So years of friendship built and now he's gone. Truck is going to his young daughter, which I'm glad to see.
Now my hunt begins for mine, just now without my friend helping me along the way. In spirit I know he's around, but obviously it's not the same.
So here I am looking for a Slick to drive in his honor and when I have kids, we can drive in together.
That's the short, short version of my story.
I don't know squat about Fords to speak of but I dig old trucks, just so happened my life had lead down a GMC path---no Chevy's even. One thing I have always noticed about '60's Ford trucks vs GM trucks is that the interiors, steering wheels and trim seems so much more detailed and colorful than what GM offered. There is an old gent that lives across the road that has a really nice Ford from the era you are speaking of. It sits outside by a garage, but his daughter that lives to the east of us on a different lot goes over there and drives it now and then. From 50 feet it looks like new. I've never looked close at it though. A co-worker has a '65 Ford stepside in his garage that he hot rodded up a long time ago and the 13 years i have worked with him he hasn't driven it more than around the block he lives on a few times.
I drive the crap out of my GMC's, (except for one with no drive train in it) but their looks suffer because of it I guess!
I hope you find a truck that will keep the connection with Steve on track. he had a great truck!
