• 1981 Ford F100 – Jeffrey D.

The Blue Step Side

I am the second owner of the truck, the first owner bought the truck new in May of 1981 in Florida. It was black with red interior, at some point he painted the whole truck, motor, body and frame red, added the roll bar and a tubular rear bumper, aftermarket rims and steps. The driver’s side door got caved in so the truck got painted blue, chassis and motor painted black and the interior color was changed to dark blue. The man then passed away in 2018 and his wife left the truck at there summer home in northern Maine where I found the truck in the summer of 2019. I bought the truck for what I say was a good price mentioning. I was able to turn the key and drive it 50 miles home. The truck has a 300 straight six paired with a 4 speed manual shift witch is connected to a 9 inch rear end. It had 33,652 documented miles on it when I bought it it now has over 36,000 since I’ve been daily driving it for the past month and a half. I’ve put new tires on it, new heater core, fixed a light wiring gremlin and did a oil change. I plan on doing a full cab off restoration shortly and possibly a motor swap
