Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen not only the prices of iconic vehicles like the first-generation Ford Bronco soar to new heights, but also models that weren’t necessarily always the apple of the collector car market’s eye, such as the third-generation version of that rugged SUV. The same phenomenon applies to the Ford F-Series line of trucks, which has seen essentially every generation rise in value over the past couple of years, including the “Bumpside” era of 1967-1972, according to new data from Hagerty.
That publication recently released the Q1 2023 version of its price guide while also highlighting five models that gained a significant amount of value over that same time period, which included the Ford F-Series line of pickups built between 1967-1972. As most are well aware, vintage truck prices – in general – have skyrocketed in recent years, pushing many to seek out Blue Oval haulers from the 1980s and 1990s as earlier models are getting a bit pricey.
That certainly applies to the beloved Bumpside, which continues to gain value month after month in a significant way. According to Hagerty, this particular generation of Ford truck gained 37 percent in value over the first quarter of the year, even though prices weren’t exactly low prior to that.
Hagerty attributes this phenomenon to the increased popularity of old trucks at collector car auctions such as Mecum and Barrett-Jackson, which has helped drive prices even higher. Interestingly, this rise pertains to both stock and modified pickups, while the venerable Ford F-Series also continues to gain ground on the 1967-72 Chevrolet and GMC C/K-series trucks, which have historically pulled in bigger numbers – though that may not be the case much longer.

Just bought a 1981 Ford f150 with a bad motor for cheap and plan on fixing up the body and drive train to drive for a while and maybe cash in later when prices go up some what more than they are now.
Probably not so phenomenal when you consider the price of new and late model pickups these days. Most people can’t justify the 60k to 80k plus, money layout for a new one that is not as reliable, maintenance friendly, and especially visually attractive as the older models. Ford/GM/Ram, etc., are pricing themselves out of existence when they should be offering an everyman’s version that most people can afford.
Even if you can afford a new one, it’s not a wise decision for your money for a “planned obsolescence” new pickup.
Nobody is choosing a 1967 as a daily over a new truck, unless they’re like me and live in a rual area and have no commute. (I have a ’69 F-100 Ranger SWB.)
I’ve had a stock 1971 F-100 short bed, with a 302, automatic C-4 and 78,000
Miles! But as a project in 2010, for 3K
Glad I held onto it! It’s a fun truck to drive, and gets a lot of attention!
