Where in the world can you buy a 1971 Ford F150?? Blue preferably and three on the tree.
There's a lot of neat stuff on the streets in Cuba, might find one there.
Wow, great find.
Just Google what your looking for.
Aren't 1971 Ford trucks labeled as F100's.
That pickup is in really good condition,however the sale price seems a bit unrealistic.
Do you know when this listing was first posted on the internet mud?
Was wondering,as we all know a seller can ask whatever they think something is worth,or what they want to get.
However unless someone is willing to pay the listing price,it may never sell.
No, I don't know when it was first posted on the internet. I have never paid that much for a vehicle.I paid $18,000.00 for my 2002 F-150 brand new. I still have it, they're good trucks. Here's another 71 F-100 from the same site.
The F-150 came out in 1976.
I paid a little over $31,000.00 for my GMC wk 4x4 pickup brand new in 2011.
On a 0 interest loan for 72 months,its paid for now & I plan on keeping it till I step into Glory.
I have been associating new vehicle price with the $51,000 I paid for my 5.5 acre hobby farm with a 2 bedroom 1 bath house.
Along with a 2 story barn with a '60 attached horse stable.
Of course that was over 30 years ago,however new 4x4 pickups are going for $40 to $70 thousand now days.
So you see why I plan to hang onto the truck I have.
My first new pickup was a 1973 rear wheel drive regular cab 8 foot box Dodge which cost around $3600.00
I did a search & found a message board discussing the 1971 F-100 pickup.

Re: What did a F100 cost new in 1971?

My father says he paid $2750 for my 71 F100 Sport Custom. That was with the aftermarket rear step bumper. 302, 3 speed/column. am/fm radio in NC
71 F100 SportCustom
460 C6. Disc Brake/Power-steering/automatic Swap. 3.00
1986 Bronco 5.0 AOD
There is a restored blue 73 model that makes the local car shows. The guy's father bought it new. I think cost of the off frame restoration would put it out of reach for anybody to use as a daily driver.
Good idea on an older truck. Newer trucks are expensive let downs. Older Ford's pop up in decent shape sort of regularly on cl, here in wny.
How far are you willing to travel or have it shipped from?
I have been casually looking for a 69-75 Ford F100 or F250 for awhile. Then I took a short vacation/extended weekend up to central and coastal Oregon. Couldn't believe how many I saw. Around here I see really nicely done (show quality) for $25-35K range and junk for $5k or less. Very little in between on the market locally. I don't want/need show quality. I'd like a rust free body in pristine condition with a non-butchered interior. I can handle all the mechanical stuff front to rear myself.
You got this beast in Michigan.
Another one, not exactly what you're looking for, but give you an idea what's out there.
If this one were only a different color.
@Stan Smith Would this work for ya?
Lots of real good parts on that for another project truck. Good cab and nose clip, 12,000 miles on a 390. Bids at $2100, cheap if you need the parts.
I saw a '72 F-250 on CL in Central New York & a '65 F-100 that is in upstate NY.
