I can't speak for having a friend-like relationship with my parents (they're very old fashioned), but I think it's a fine line you have to walk to be able to become friends with your child later in life. OPs dad is not handling this transition very well, in my humble opinion.
I don't know parents can be best-friends, if they are really open minded and look upon the intention rather than words. For example some parents really don't care if their kid swears as long as it's in privacy. I mean you don't tell your friends to stop swearing because you aren't allowed too.
I feel like that would be embarrassing. It's nice that he's trying to get closer to you though!
Have a talk with your dad and tell him you need a father, not a best friend in your life.
