EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY, 350 V8, 700R4, A/C, MUSTANG II SUSP, PWR DISC, EXC PAINT!

This 1949 Ford F-1 an awesome kind of custom pickup that takes its freight train commanding appearance, and puts some serous upgraded V8 power behind it. With a quality build like this, you won't want to miss out.

The Ford F-1 is arguably the best-looking post-war truck. While they all have a basic industrial attractiveness, this specimen is definitely a cut-above because of its customizing. It starts with the aggressive lowered stance that is emphasized further by the great red paint borrowed from BMW's palette. The deep gloss in this paintwork helps to highlight the restoration's exceptional panel fit and rivals the brightwork in shine. The color has to be vivid because the chrome could easily steal all the attention with the bold grille, slats on the hood, bumpers, and the tasteful knock-off style wheels, all giving this build an upper class appearance. As expected with a custom truck like this, even the details amaze. This is seen in places like on the door where the vent window was eliminated and replaced with one-piece glass. And the bed is a new piece built by specialist Dan Carpenter and finished with new oak boards.

The interior continues the mix of premium and performance feeling. It starts with the tan vinyl bucket seats that are infinitely more comfortable and adjustable than what came from the factory in '49. It coordinates nicely with the custom wood center console (including cup holders) and brown carpeting. The exterior's premium red paint is utilized inside on the door panels, wraps onto the custom dashboard, and matches the classic style two-spoke wheel. But this hot rod is much more than color coordinated. It comes with nice features such as an AM/FM/CD stereo and ice cold air conditioning. But the driver gets all the best upgrades. There's a cool floor-mounted shifter with piston topper to rest your right hand. Plus, while you're enjoying the power steering with your left hand, there's a full set of Classic Instruments gauges to keep an eye on what's going on under the hood.

One quick look in the engine bay, and you'll know that's not a Ford motor beneath the stylish air cleaner. It's not much of a worry that this blue oval has Chevy power because the 350 cubic-inch small-block V8 is one of the most versatile and upgradeable powerplants around. In fact, this one already has improvements bolted on when it was rebuilt 4,000 miles ago (and has the restoration receipts to prove it.) This includes an Edelbrock Performer carburetor and intake. But you should do more than just listen to rumble out the dual exhaust; take a look at the setup in the undercarriage photos. There you can see serious investment in not only the exhaust, but also the entire frame. Note the upgrade to an A-arm independent front suspension that makes life on the road a lot easier. In fact, this one was built to be a great driver thanks to the four-speed automatic transmission that connects to a Ford nine-inch rear end running a versatile 3.50 ratio. This driver-friendly package is finished off with front disc brakes and modern BF Goodrich rubber at all four corners.

This is a truck that looks great and drives even better (quality is maybe the nicest in our showroom). It's a Ford pickup that attracts a lot of attention, but the enthusiast who will enjoy it most is the one sitting behind the wheel. Call today!!
