Classic Car Overview

This 1952 Ford F-1 Restomod pickup is one of those vehicles that would be a smoking hot deal even at a higher price. Featuring a spectacular, comprehensive nut-and-bolt build, it was expertly finished to a very high standard and runs with fuel-injected big-block power under the hood. Built to collect trophies, its also wonderful to drive with lots of hidden goodies like power 4-wheel disc and a sporty suspension, and comes wrapped in an exciting Viper Red wrapper over an elegant tan leather interior. If youre looking for a no-excuses pickup thats a bargain at almost any price point, then your search is over. One could spend a lot of time poring over the beautiful Viper Red paint on this truck before finding much to complain about. Completed in 2017, the finish is deep, with a luster and shine that only modern urethanes can truly provide. Its not a perfect paint job, but who wants an undriveable trailer queen anyway, but its a top driver-quality finish that will easily dominate the local car show scene. That sheetmetal underneath was expertly finished as well (and yes, its all steel, with the hood, fenders, and running boards included) and is very smooth today, along with even gaps and panel alignment that can only come from long hours of tedious fitting and adjusting. Even though there are a few custom modifications like some shaved emblems and door handles, a custom tailgate, and gorgeous wood bed inside it still has that stand-up old school look that has always made these Ford trucks so darn popular. The cab looks practically new, showing off drip rails that have probably never seen rain, and the slick bed has capped and smoothed rails up top and beautifully finished, light-stained wood and chrome rub strips inside that make it look like a dance floor. Youll think twice before you throw any dirt back there, although its still certainly capable of hauling, and if you look closer youll see that the gas tank was relocated back there for safety purposes. The builders wanted the slick paint to do most of the talking, so theres not a ton of chrome and brightwork left, although the front grille, bumpers, and remaining trim on the hood are all is fantastic condition, providing just enough contrast to make that finish really pop. This Blue Oval Beauty is absolutely dialed-in. The comfortable tan leather interior has a very modern feel, with a fit and finish that you just dont expect in most vintage trucks thanks to the expert job done by the pros that put it together. The comfortable leather bench seat looks like its never been sat in, and its been upholstered in a gorgeous leather hide that matches the leather-and-suede custom door panels at the flanks. Coupled with a beautifully lined cabin, taut headliner above, and fresh carpets below, the tan cabin feels incredibly plush and beautifully put-together, and even though it was finished a few years back its obvious this truck has barely been used ever since. And by now youve noticed that gorgeous Viper Red dash and custom center console, cool right? Two big Omega Kustom Instrument gauges were mounted ahead of the driver to keep an eye on the powerful motor, billet Vintage Air A/C controls were centered in the middle and pump freezing A/C through the vents installed underneath, and the chrome trim accents against the red steel backdrop of the dash perfectly mirror the exterior theme. That custom-fabricated center console was seamlessly integrated into the dash, and it houses a big Omega Kustom tachometer that matches the main gauges, a uniquely sculpted Lokar shifter that manages the automatic transmission below, and a Pioneer double-din AM/FM/CD/AUX/BT stereo that manages the tunes inside. A leather-rimed billet steering at the helm of the cockpit was installed in the correct upright position, so this F-1 actually feels like a vintage truck behind the wheel, although the brightly polished column, horn-ring, and even the billet pedals remind the driver that this is a high-end modern build. Big power comes from a built-up, fuel-injected 454 cubic inch Ford V8 motor under the big clamshell hood. Constructed by notable engine-builder Don Ewing, the reworked big block was upgraded with aluminum heads, a Weiand Stealth aluminum intake, a Fi-Tech electronic fuel-injection system, HEI ignition, and block-hugging Summit long-tube headers, it has plenty of punch up and down the throttle. The engine bay is ultra-sanitary with plenty of detailed and polished components, black Bowtie valve covers and a matching air cleaner, and a careful routing of the lines and hoses to keep them organized and out of sight. The new suspension has been beefed-up with a Heidts Mustang II-style front end with Speedway Motors upper and lower tubular A-Arms, upgraded coils, shocks, and leaf springs, and a fully boxed frame. Power rack-and-pinion steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes ensure an easy drive every time out, while the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission was built-up with a shift-kit, 3000-stall convertor, and a B&M torque convertor to handle all that added horsepower. It shifts smoothly and is very responsive off-the-line, although with a big 12-bolt rear end filled with 3.73 posi-traction gears it can easily handle itself at highway speeds as well. Everything underneath is highly detailed, shiny, polished, and painted to look its best, making this a truck that needs no excuses on the show field or out on the road. Flashy 18-inch Foose wheels fill those fat fenders using 245/40/18 front and 275/45/18 rear blackwall performance radials. Look at the details, the quality, and the components that went into this build and then think about how much time and effort it required to make it look this pretty. All that for less than $62,000? You need to call right now!
