1969 Ford F100 SWB Factory 429 from North America
Very unique truck
Just minor everyday wear over the years; the truck has been in family since new.
My grandfather ordered this truck in 1969 from the Ford dealership in Jackson Tennessee. He wanted a "plain" Ford truck with lots of power to pull his stock trailer filled with livestock. The truck DOES NOT have power steering, no air, no radio... but it does have a heater. He ordered it with a automatic transmission and it is the FMX type. He also ordered it special order with a 429 big block and it did come with a chrome grill, but has white painted bumpers front and rear.
The truck is in great shape, it's a short wheel base model. I was given the truck after my grandfathers death in 1988 with only 52,000 miles on the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That's an awesome truck you got yourself there... Sounds like a great family heirloom to be passed down :-)
Ever go to www.fordtrucks.com??? Lots of cool people and info on that site. I highly recommend it for figuring out all there can be to find out about Ford trucks. Congrats.
Sorry to hear about your grandad's passing :(
