So last week, this olelongrooffan was trying to stay off of Eisenhower’s Highway System and sticking to surface streets in my attempt to slow my life down a bit and take a moment to smell the exhaust fumes. Well, my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan was successful in this endeavor as this 1963 FC 150 was spotted down in Riviera Beach at a local, to that area, repair facility.
I was cruising through the construction zone that is US 1 in that area of the concrete jungle that represents the southeast section of the Sunshine State and spotted this beauty at that cornerside facility just before getting to the big bridge over the Palm Beach water port just to the south.
As this olelongrooffan spotted it as I was passing by, I had to traverse that big bridge over that port but, in an attempt to satisfy the voracious appetite for all things Hoon of my fellow Hoons, I whipped a Ueee and headed back across that arched bridge to capture some images of this now rare pickemuptruck.
This olelongrooffan chatted it up a bit with the owner of this establishment as he was working on a forlorn pressure washer of which my fellow Hoons can spot the hoses attached in the above image. Turns out this rusty, but delightful FC belongs to him and he asked if this olelongrooffan was interested in purchasing it?
When I inquired about the purchase price of this hump back bed possessing truck, he mentioned he was looking for $30 large for it. My immediate thought was that no matter how rare this truck may be, this, at that price, would definitely gain the recognition of a mention for fellow Hoon’s NPOCP listing.
And although the shiny red and white paint job was nice, and the under bed mounted spare tire location was to-die-for, the amount of cancer on this one disqualifies it from further consideration by this olelongrooffan at any price. The last time this olelongrooffan spoted one of these I was out in the mile high city but that one was a 170 and a longbed. acarr260, you still have that azure one stowed safely in the garage?
Plus, I have already had one FC vehicle of this vintage in the form of my olestationbus and this olelongrooffan is not really in the market for another.
No matter how pretty that face is.
But this Audi resting comfortably out front would be another experience all together.
