This 1969 Ford F-250 is a true Good Humor ice cream truck, and it's going to engage more senses than just your taste buds. Everything from the feel of the porcelain signs to the chime of the real bells tells you this restored truck is smooth and creamy nostalgia.
A 1969 F-Series pickup is always going to be a great classic truck, but there's a lot of history that goes along with this presentation. Good Humor would switch to box trucks in the 1970s that were simpler to set up for the ice cream man. But these pickups are what we love because they have their own unique style. The cab was a full retro-fit for easy hop-on/off access. The Good Humor graphics are said to be the original porcelain signs (possibly with minor touch-up) that are so beautifully finished that people will spend plenty of time looking over the details of the raised graphics. And because you also have lights for the signs, they can be showcased day or night. It's a fully detailed style with the best Good Humor bars on display, top side boards, and Ford factory wheel covers. This is a work truck, and it was restored to turn back the clock to 1969 - not alter the past. So while this is a small batch specialty build, it may not get invited to be parked next to a Ferrari at the next Concours event. However, just about every car show, food truck night, and exclusive party is likely going to want your Ford there to hand out ice cream (and when was the last time a Ferrari paid for itself?)
The cab is always on display because the ice cream man was always ready to deliver treats. It's wonderfully detailed with the removable roof panels for sunny day fun and the pull chain to ring the real bells that let kids know you were coming through the neighborhood. This is a fully set up truck, and it's believed the compressor will just need servicing if you want to carry ice cream in the freezer box. The single-seat, classic steering column, and bright white style were to make sure that this was simple, tidy, and sterile. So this one has the kind of clean look that's perfect for a driver in a white shirt, white pants, white hat, and a bright smile.
Under the hood is a 240 cubic-inch inline-six. Those who know Fords recognize this as their choice for heavy-duty usage in the 1960s. It has a terrific reputation for robustness that's ideal for an F-250 like this. Of course, you're probably just as impressed with the style of this one as you are with the substance. That's because even the engine bay turns back the clock with the bright blue paint and correct decals. It fires up with a truly classic feel and settles into a smooth inline-six operation. There's an authenticity to the look of this truck, and so you'll appreciate how it also drives like a classic pickup. But features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and modern touring tires make for an easy one to take through the neighborhood or lead the parade.
Everyone loves the ice cream man, and so you know this is the one classic that's going to get more smiles than all the others. So if you're ready for a sweet treat, don't miss this truck. Call now!
