You’ve got the toy, now you need the tow car?

Ford’s line of F-Trucks have been a constant fixture within the marque’s range: launching first in 1948 and still enduring today.

The fourth generation is the one we’re focussing on today however. Produced from 1961 to 1966, they were visually much sleeker and wider than their predecessors in line with more modern 60s styling at the time.

This generation introduced unibody offerings in smaller F150 and F250 configurations in two-wheel drive: whilst full-tone F350s and four-wheel drive models continued to be produced with separate cabs and beds.

The 1965 manufacturer year updated the F-truck with an all-new ladder frame and independent coil-sprung suspension on two-wheel drive variants.

This ’66 F-series truck is the big full-tonne F350, and has been converted into one seriously cool car hauler.

Reminiscent of the cab-transporters popularised in the 60s; the F350 has had the back lopped off with the tray extended by 650mm.

Under the bonnet sits a fresh 300ci six-cylinder with Clifford performance parts, and backed by a five-speed gearbox and reconditioned differential.

Disc brake front end along with new master cylinder, booster and lines have also been fitted to aid drivability whilst the whole truck has been rewired.

The seller also states that the truck wears new glass and bailey channels, as well as new upholstery and carpet.

It seems to have had all bases covered, and offers an extremely cool solution to all of your car hauling needs.

The F350 is based in New South Wales, and is listed for $38,000 (or nearest offer).
