On the surface, building a truck as amazing as this 1949 Ford F-1 pickup may seem easy, but when you look at the details that make it so seamless, you realize that a lot of talent and a big pile of money were required. You could probably build one like this yourself, but since it would take years and cost a big pile of cash, why not just take this one home instead? Bright red paint is a great look on a vintage pickup truck and while it was done a few years ago, it still looks great thanks to the many virtues of two-stage urethane. The shiny surface also highlights the rather extensive body modifications that include a nosed and decked hood with a custom vent, smooth fenders, shaved bumpers, and a rear roll pan that works with the deleted tailgate to make it look slick. Other details like the chrome grille and door handles were kept in place both for style and functionality purposes and the big FORD block letters on the nose will let everyone know what it is. The running boards were painted to match the bodywork and the bed is beautifully finished with an oak floor and stainless rub strips. There are also 39 Ford teardrop taillights, accessory step plates, and all new weather seals throughout. A full luxury interior was stuffed inside the pickups cab, including a nicely upholstered tan bench seat thats stylish yet appropriate. Matching cloth and vinyl door panels made it easy to get everything to work together and putting plush carpets on the floor helps to control noise and heat. The original dash remains, augmented by a custom insert full of VDO gauges while the rest of the dash was smoothed just the way the bodywork was. A GM tilt steering column and Grant GT steering wheel with a wood rim make it easy to get comfortable and the Lokar shifter is a vintage-looking piece that works rather well here. Its minimalist, but it does it with style. A lot of credit for the performance feel has to go to the 302 cubic inch crate motor under the hood, whose effortless power makes this truck a true pleasure to drive. It has less than 5000 miles on it and doesnt deviate much from stock so reliability is excellent. With about 250 horsepower on tap, it feels like it could pull all day without breaking a sweat, and with Ford Blue paint, a chrome air cleaner, and Ford ignition system, it almost looks OEM in this vintage truck. Underneath, the chassis offers a modern front clip including and independent suspension, power steering, and disc brakes, as well as a great-sounding exhaust system with tips that exit right under the rear roll pan. An automatic transmission and a Chevy 10-bolt rear end with relatively tall gears make it a fantastic highway cruiser and the lowered stance is just about right. Flashy 17-inch wheels wheels and 235/65/17 radials certainly help with the high performance look. This is the kind of truck that few guys get to own, but everyone wishes they could. Well, nows your chance, so call today!
