"Hi Jesmond, We met up with you in May 2017 to view the low mileage Imperial Maroon Mk2 Jaguar 3.4 which you had for sale at the time (advertised in a Car magazine as ‘The Loveable Rogue’) - which we subsequently purchased - photo attached. I expect that as with most people, there is always likely to be a bit of apprehension when buying anything mechanical second hand – especially a 60 year old vintage / classic motor vehicle - and we were no different. You will possibly recall that it’s body and interior is in excellent original condition, and it has proven to be in equally outstanding condition mechanically as well. Just to let you know that this car (as I suspect you expected it to be) is a real gem and we are very very happy customers of yours. Up until now it has been used largely on VCC outings, but we have recently joined the Manawatu Branch Jaguar Club so that we can further enjoy the car."Brian & Catherine Abraham, Manawatu, New Zealand
The popularity of the Ford F-Series pickup is no fluke.
Born more than a century ago, it earned its place in the American landscape by delivering rugged value and consistent innovation.
Tough trucks like an F250 are not commonly found in such pristine condition nearly three decades later. Although the fourth-generation truck made its debut in 1961 with a traditional solid-axle suspension, it received Ford's vaunted twin-I-beam setup in 1965.
Available on two-wheel-drive models, the novel suspension design was hyped directly at noncommercial truck users with the slogan "Drives like a car, works like a truck.".
This one is a terrific example of a vintage truck that is still ready and more than capable to get the job done today.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- The long bed gives you more capacity; the higher stance gives you more go-anywhere ability; and the overall tough truck look gives you more stature but this example is also about looking good while giving you more.
- Beautiful paintwork and impressively complete and clean for a truck.
- Interior - new carpet / original seat / new hood lining / new door trims etc
- Nice chrome all over
- Clean tidy tray
- Good tires
- Clean tidy engine bay
- Mechanically sound
- Nice Grunty, Old School V8 with recent engine work carried out (Heads reconditioned, new valves / valve seats and rebuilt carburetor)
In recent years, Trucks have skyrocketed in value and these fourth-generation Ford F Series, from the late 1960s to early '70s look the coolest and make strong, sound investments because authentic survivors from that era are rare. Most were used on farms, driven day in and day out until they simply wouldn’t run.
We’ve noticed that collectors with relatively larger American collections are beginning to add a few pickups for nostalgic purposes once they’ve acquired the key cars in their garage.
Several factors continue to contribute to F-Series stability on the auction market: The vehicles cost little compared to many other classic cars. They’re mechanically easy to maintain and repair—no computerised tools required. And when you do need to repair them, it’s easy to get parts, since they are American trucks.
If you're after a good, trouble free example of one of these, then look no further and grab this one before its gone.
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.
Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.
Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.
We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at email@example.com anytime.
PLEASE NOTE: As Waimak Classic Cars is NOT a car yard dealer type of operation, we do not operate through fixed opening hours. Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
