Right now, trucks are hot. Take, for example, these four examples offered as part of Mecum’s upcoming Kissimmee 2022 auction. Each one of them is a highly original, unrestored example that is ready to either be enjoyed straight out of the box or further preserved for future generations.

Whether you are looking for a factory hotrod or just want to relive life as it was “back in the day,” this collection likely has what you are looking for.


A Ford F100 ready for the campground

What’s possibly more eye-catching than a pristine, survivor sports car? Try this 1968 Ford F100 Custom that’s outfitted for camping.

Sure, trucks aren’t normally at the forefront of all-original classics thanks to their workhorse nature, but, somehow, this 1968 Ford F100 Custom has survived untouched.

Purchased new on February 8, 1969, this F100 stayed in the same family for almost 40 years, managing to only cover 9150 miles since it was bought. Other original features include the two-tone Rangoon Red and Wimbledon White paint–with matching original Jewell camper top–as well as “factory chalk markings, original fan belts and four original tires.”

Camper prep wasn't limited to the topper, though, as the F100 is outfitted with “an intercom between the cab and cargo area, a built-in flashlight at the rear of the shell, plaid curtains for the shell windows, and a paper towel dispenser.”

Inside the cab, you’ll find a red interior furnished with full carpets, a padded dash and a vinyl bench seat.


A virtually brand-new 1993 Toyota Deluxe

Looking for a showroom-condition, Rad-era truck? Just check out his 1993 Toyota Deluxe Pickup.

Sporting only 94 miles (no, that’s not a typo), this is about as close as you can get to purchasing a brand-new ‘90s pickup truck without the use of a time machine.

This single-owner Toyota comes powered by a 2.4-liter 22R-E inline-four engine that sends its power to all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.

The exterior, finished in Forest Green Metallic, also features chrome bumpers and new Goodyear all-terrain tires. The interior features a gray cloth interior and an AM/FM stereo.

Also included in the sale are the original owner’s manual and sales brochure.


A Chevrolet 454 SS that proves trucks can be muscle cars, too

What’s better than a factory-built hot rod? How about one that comes with a bed that can carry whatever you throw in it?

Enter this 1990 Chevrolet 454 SS. Powered by a–you guessed it–454 cubic-inch V8, this hopped-up Chevrolet C/K also received a revised suspension that included a beefier front anti-roll bar and special Bilstein shocks.

This particular example has only had one previous owner and only shows 535 miles on its odometer.

A number of original documents are included with the truck, like the invoice and owner’s manual.

This 454 SS also comes finished in black–the only color available for the 1990 model year–over a red interior.


A well-preserved, third-generation Ford Bronco

Need some more brown in your life? This 1982 Ford Bronco–finished in two-tone Dark Brown Metallic and Wimbledon White–might be just the ticket.

Sold new in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this Bronco is reported to have been “always stored in an airplane hangar,” never seeing ice nor snow.

Showing only 3500 miles, this unrestored Ford comes from the Gary Thomas collection, an assortment of over 30 well-preserved Fords to be offered at Mecum Kissimmee 2022.

Moving to the inside of the Bronco, you’ll be greeted by a Nutmeg cloth interior, and period luxury items like a cigar lighter and air conditioning.

The original build sheet, window sticker and owner's manual are also included in the sale.
