This 1949 Ford F-1 Pickup Truck has southern history and is a great looking restomod truck. When World War II ended in 1945, the American automakers, including the Ford Motor Company, started again producing vehicles for the general public. However, many of the early post-war cars and trucks were, at best, dressed up early 40s models. For Ford, new truck designs came in 1948 when the company launched its F-Series trucks, which are still going strong today and one of the best-selling trucks of all time. Little changed from the previous year on the 1949 F-1, though the grilles were no longer painted red. Since many pickups at the time were work trucks, they were pretty spartan which is why many of them have become beneficiaries of restomod treatment. With a restomod, like this one, the truck gets a stronger engine and upgraded creature comforts, many of which were not available when the truck was new. Restomod trucks have been growing in popularity over the past few year and they are continuing to generate more and more buzz as the years go on. This particular 49 Ford F-1 Restomod comes to us from a southern-based collector who owned the truck for the past 15+ years.
