BaT Auction: 1972 Ford F-100 at No Reserve
This 1972 Ford F-100 was purchased new by Irv Seaver BMW in Santa Ana, California. The truck was used as the shop’s delivery vehicle until being presented to the shop’s service manager as a retirement gift, and was previously featured on BaT in August 2011. The truck is finished in Calypso Coral and carries Seaver’s livery, including the brands carried by Seaver when the truck was in use. The seller has owned the truck at two different periods, and the 302ci V8 has been rebuilt during the seller’s ownership with modified cylinder heads, an aluminum intake, four-barrel carburetor, and a refreshed cooling system with aluminum radiator, water pump, hoses, and more. This F-100 is now being offered with a California title in the seller’s name.
A walk-around video is viewable below. The truck is finished in Calypso Coral, and features hand-painted livery from Seaver Motorcycles. The livery incorporates the manufacturers sold by Seaver at the time, including Suzuki, BSA, OSSA, Cushman Truckster, and BMW. Steel wheels are fitted with factory hubcaps and Goodyear Wrangler tires. The pictured motorcycle is not included.
Wire-bound rope tie-downs are present in each corner, and three ramp holes are present in the tailgate for loading and unloading Cushman Truckster utility vehicles. Detailed photos of the interior of the pickup box, weatherstripping, and exterior trim are provided in the gallery. A hand-operated horn is mounted to the driver’s side mirror.
The cabin features black vinyl upholstery and interior plastics contrasted by body-color surfaces. The truck was originally ordered without a radio, power steering, vanity mirrors, or carpets. A Vintage Air combination air conditioning and heater system has been added under the dash, and a brodie knob has been added to the factory two-spoke steering wheel.
The truck retains factory instrumentation, including a 100 mph speedometer, mechanical odometer, and a quartet of auxiliary gauges. 66k miles are shown, approximately 4k miles of which were added by the seller.
The 302ci V8, engine number D10E6015-AA, is said to be original to the truck, and sends power to the rear wheels via a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission. Also featured are modified cylinder heads, an aluminum intake, and a four-barrel carburetor.
The engine was rebuilt during the seller’s ownership, and photos of the process are provided. The seller fitted a new heavy duty aluminum radiator, water pump, cooling hoses, a new starter, coated the exhaust manifolds, and more.
