1968 Ford Ranger Pickup Truck

Why This Car Is Special

We have a 1968 Ford F-100 Ranger for sale here at Skyway Classics that was a 12-year labor of love for the seller, who is currently downsizing and getting ready to move to a smaller home without storage for a vehicle of this size.

It has had a full restoration and upgrade, including rebuilding its original 390 cubic inch V-8 engine and C-6 automatic transmission, repainting it, upgrading several of the ancillary systems and refreshing the interior.

This F-100, in top-level Ranger trim, is truly a better vehicle than the one that left the Kansas City plant 52 years ago.

Mechanical

Our Ranger has a H in the fourth digit of the VIN that indicates that this truck was originally equipped with a two-barrel fed 390-cu.in. V-8. The engine was fully rebuilt and bored .030 over when the odometer read 49,742 miles. Mileage today is just 50,827, meaning that the truck has covered fewer than 1,000 miles since the overhaul.

The rebuild included flat-top pistons, chromoly rings, and Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads. Replacing the two-barrel carburetor is a Holley 750 mounted on an Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, the latter painted the proper shade of Ford blue. The seller estimates engine output at 405 horsepower.

The radiator was also replaced with an aluminum four-row Champion unit for superior cooling , a stainless Micro V-guard pulley conversion kit scavenges measurable percentages of engine power robbed by the conventional pulley setup, a March Performance Style Track serpentine belt system, Flowtech long tube headers, Flowmaster Double-Chamber dual exhaust, and a new wiring harness and ignition provide strong, reliable spark.

It has the factory C-6 SelectShift three-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels of this F-100. At the time of the engine rebuild, the transmission was fully resealed and there are no leaks presently reported.

The steering, suspension and braking systems have all either been overhauled or significantly upgraded for better performance. New I-Beam pivot bushings and new king pins were installed up front. The truck has power steering and the reservoir and pump were both replaced, and the truck received a four-wheel alignment.

The suspension was last serviced in 2016, and shocks, springs and bushings are all described as being in excellent condition. The brakes received the most attention with a four-wheel disc conversion to help provide more consistent stopping power. Cooper Discoverer 31x10.5x15-inch tires were installed on eight-hole aluminum wheels in 2016, and have approximately 90% tread life left, according to the seller.

Interior

As the top-trim level Ranger, the inside of the truck is just as handsome as the outside, featuring primarily black soft components like the vinyl seat and dash pad, along with blue vinyl on the door panels and armrests.

All of the interior components including the black carpet, instrument panel and all of the gauges, still looks new.
It has cold-blowing A/C system, sport steering wheel with polished aluminum spokes, aluminum switch panel with a switch for the engine cooling fan, and two other switches wired and open for additional electrical additions, temp gauge, and an Alpine CDE-122 AM/FM CD player in place of the original audio system.

Exterior

This 52-year-old Ford has a great restored paint job in blue and white as it was dipped and stripped before the paint work. The truck was refinished in Medium Blue and Pearl White and all of the body and window seals and felts were replaced at the time the truck was painted.

The inside of the bed was coated in black Rhino lining to keep it from being damaged if the truck bed is ever used. LED headlamps replace the original sealed-beam units. All of the exterior chrome and stainless trim also appears to be in excellent condition.

Conclusion

This restored and redone 1968 Ford F-100 Ranger we have here at Skyway Classics offers that seemingly perfect mix of a solid body and frame with excellent paint, strong upgraded powertrain along with other mechanical upgrades, and just enough customization in the interior to regularly remind its driver of just how unique this machine is.
