CC Outtake: 1961 Ford F-100 – Welcome Back, Paul!

From a bit of distance, this looks like pretty much the opposite of Paul’s truck: no ding nor scuff nor wear, no fade nor crack nor patch.

Every panel is undented, and they’re all the same colour.

The bed’s clean-clean-clean. Lookit those ruby-red, Ford-pattern taillights.

I think this is a ’61, going by the grille and front trim details. These look like ’63-’64 (amber) turn signal lenses, though.

Reproduction FoMoCo-logo sealed beams. And now we zoom in, there’s pitting visible in the chrome, some fading of the brite-dip, and some dirt on the paint. Ahh…I’m feeling better now.
