I think about my old 1965 Ford F100 a fair bit. That was a great truck, and I learned a lot more about working on cars because of it. Especially when Hooniverse co-founder Tim Odell and I pulled the engine, swapped in a fresh cam, did the valve seals, and welded up a new exhaust system. We also replaced the clutch. It was a busy weekend. But soon after, I had to make some space for a vehicle that made more sense for a growing family… and for me, that was my 1974 W114 Benz. We’re now a few cars removed from both of those, yet I still think about my truck. But you could own that truck because the person I sold it to is ready to move on from it. The HoonTruck is for sale!
The current owner has done some work on the truck. In fact, he had to replace the entire engine because the old block was pretty tired. Now there’s a fresh 352 crate engine in the nose with less than 1,000 miles on it. The owner also cleaned up the various rust holes with POR15 and popped on a new tailgate. Inside, the carpet looks great and the rest of the truck is as rad as I remember it.
It still has the Clarion sound system, Magnaflow exhaust, and wheel and tire setup from when I sold it. Now it just has no more holes and a fresh mill. If the seller were to hold on to the truck, he’d spray on a bedliner in the back and clean up more of the bodywork. Other than that, this thing is ready to rock and is in better shape compared to when I owned it.
The seller gave me the first right of refusal, which I really appreciate. Unfortunately, my garage space is tight at the moment and I don’t have the funds to plop down on another vehicle. Otherwise, this thing would be coming back to live with me because I really did love this truck. I can picture myself tossing my mountain bike in the back and heading off to the trailhead in this old beast. But I’m not going to do that…
