Classic Car Overview

If youre like me, you glanced at the photos and said to yourself, Wow, what a pretty truck! This 1951 Ford F-1 has a classic look, but its also been very tastefully upgraded to create an awesome resto-mod that gets just about everything right, including the bargain price tag. The soft blue paint on this truck isnt quite an original Ford color, but its not totally wrong, either. The 1950s were all about pastels and it works as well here as it did on, say, a vintage Crown Victoria. The redesigned F-1 is one of the best looking trucks of all time, so they didnt try to reinvent it when this one was built, so it keeps a very authentic look. The bumpers and grille are still traditional white and all the factory trim remains in place. Finish quality is quite good, with clean bodywork and a nice shine to the light blue paint. The body and bed are steel and it all works together to create an iconic truck that will stand out everywhere it goes. The few chrome bits still on the truck are in excellent condition and we love the way they painted the Ford script on the tailgate to make it stand out. Of course theres wood in the bed, and it has a fantastic dark stain that contrasts nicely with the paint, a trick that gives the truck an upscale character. The interior is simple, with the original bench seat reupholstered in black vinyl with original-looking pleats. The bright blue paint wraps onto the door panels and the dash was finished in black to keep it from becoming pastel overload. The factory gauges were replaced with a beautiful set of dials that were built just for this application and theres a big wood-rimmed wheel that adds warmth to the interior. The rest appears to be fairly stock, from the crank windows to the rubber floor mat, so it still feels like a vintage pickup truck when you slide behind the wheel. Attention to detail matters and this Ford manages to create an old truck feel that doesnt feel antiquated. Reliable power comes in the form of a 302 cubic inch V8 from a late-model, with a chassis borrowed from a 70s pickup. As a result, its no slouch in the performance department, sporting a Weiand intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a modest camshaft, and a big radiator up front. A serpentine belt drive system helps with reliability, and that donor truck also supplied power front disc brakes and power steering, so its a joy to drive. The twin I-beam suspension is built to work and there are leaf springs out back, so that bed isnt exclusively for show if you have some light hauling to do. A custom Flowmaster exhaust system sounds awesome and the C4 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a 9-inch rear end thats virtually indestructible. Handsome chrome wheels with baby moon hubcaps give it a bit of an old-school look and carry 275/60/15 white-letter radials. A truck that looks great and drives even better, this pretty Ford attracts a lot of attention but the guy who will enjoy it most is the one sitting behind the wheel. Call today!
