The Pick of the Day, this good-looking 1963 Ford F100 pickup truck, gets a full description from the seller as to its physical and mechanical conditional, but the biggest question is never addressed.
Why is this Ford festooned with Coca-Cola logos and slogans? It looks cool enough, but why? Is it a former Coke delivery truck, or maybe used by a local beverage supplier? Or maybe it was redone by some past owner who just loves Coca-Cola and wanted to tell the world.
Whatever, the Coke emblems make this truck looks like a rolling piece of Americana, both because of the iconic logo and because a classic Ford truck always seems like an evocative piece of nostalgia. So solid on both counts, and it would look good on a Christmas card with Santa at the wheel and a decorated tree in the bed.
“This truck is in exceptional condition with all original steel in excellent rust-free condition,” says the dealer advertising the Ford on ClassicCars.com.
“Super-straight all-original steel body with no signs of rust. Older paint looks good with a little bit of a patina here and there.
The Ford’s glass is in very good condition, the bed is in great shape and the undercarriage has the “original cab corners, floor pans, rockers and frame rails, all appearing to be rust-free,” the seller notes.
“Clean interior, unmolested original dash with functional gauges,” the ad says. “Seat cover is older but in good shape with no rips or tears.”
The truck has a Ford 302cid V8 under the hood, obviously a later engine, linked to an automatic transmission. There are Coca-Cola emblems on the valve covers. The truck runs great, the seller says, with good brakes and all electrical gear functioning, including the lights and gauges.
The asking price is $24,900. Although, potential buyers would be advised to ask the seller, “What’s with all the Coca-Cola stuff?”
