1966 Ford F-100 shortbed

From our man in Miami, Javier Reyes. (" I was a little bummed about the shadow cast by the awning of the guarapo ((fresh pressed juice from sugarcane stalks)) bar.But other than that, the pictures came out okay"--JR) .
The turquoise suits the town. I'm saying '66, but I'm never able to calibrate Sixties Fords precisely. I like everything but the whitewalls. In Colorado last March, Autoliterate posted another Ford, same era, same color, but an F-250.
