Classic Car Overview

Our St Louis Showroom is proud to offer for sale this very special 1951 Ford F1. This truck is a one of a kind build with a one of a kind story. Built with funding from dozens of donations and the vision of a boy with a dream this hotrod came to life in a big way. Many people and teams that came together to lend a hand on this build and the outcome is fantastic. Washtenaw Community College took on most of the challenge and had help from the Ford Motor Companys prototype division to supply the drivetrain. Whats under the hood is a long story by itself but we will highlight a few of the major details. The engine was built by Ford Motor Companys prototype division and is an absolute monster. Originally Ford used this engine and rear end in a Crown Victoria police interceptor to run the Cannon ball ??Lap of America. It is a 4.6L 4 valve Cobra engine with a kenne-Bell supercharger. While the prototype division of ford wont release detailed build information on this truck it is said to be pumping out over 600 horsepower.Washtenaw college nailed it with the fit and finish of the bodywork. Everyone knows that black paint shows every flaw but these builders werent scared to show off their craftsmanship. The body panels are mirrorlike and show extremely well. The black paint has one of the deepest shines we have seen on a vehicle to date and it has been sanded and buffed to be smooth as glass. Underneath the truck is just as clean as the top side. If you crawl under there you will find that this truck has tons of suspension goodies to help it handle the road and put down the power from the behemoth under the hood. The 8.8 rear end is suspended with a 4 link and coilovers set up that helps it track straight and handle the corners. Up front is a double wishbone setup with a power steering rack from the crown vic cop car. All of this means that this 51 ford pickup handles like a sports car and will surely put a mile on your face. There really is a heart warming story to be told here and this truck is ready for its next chapter.
