Description
 
Great customs like this 1948 Ford F1 pickup are like onions. There are so many layers to the build that each time you think youve seen it all, theres something new to appreciate. Of course, things like a thundering 427 side-oiler with dual quads certainly makes an impression, too, and the fact that it drives as easily as your daily driver speaks volumes about the quality of the workmanship. This truck just looks right. The chopped top, slightly modified hood with cowl-induction, and a few other subtle tweaks are major changes that blend perfectly with the original design. Onlookers will spot the easy ones, but it takes a trained eye to see all the many upgrades that this truck has enjoyed. The top looks right and updates the look, but isnt so radical that drivability is compromised, and youll note a one-piece windshield makes it look sleek. Much of the trim was shaved, including the bumpers and door handles, but the classic Ford design details, including the vents in the hood, were retained. The custom electric blue paint emphasizes the sleek look and was expertly applied to show standards, so it glows in the sunlight and looks extremely impressive at sundown. The bed is full of beautifully finished oak thats every bit as shiny and polished as the bodywork, and the vintage Pepsi cooler doubles as weatherproof storage. The blue interior is every bit as trick as the bodywork, but like the exterior, it doesnt use a lot of flash to get big results. It actually keeps the factory bench seat and covers it in blue leather, with matching door panels to add a bit of an upscale feel. The original dash has been extensively reworked to accommodate a full set of VDO gauges, including big speedometer and tach in front of the driver and the center stack is full of auxiliary gauges in their own individual pods that are aimed towards the driver. An AM/FM/CD stereo was fitted into the gloveboxs old location, and theres storage underneath. Comfort features include a factory Ford tilt column with an OEM steering wheel and power windows that lower themselves with the click of the key fob. Its finished off with hand-laid pinstripes that emphasize the trucks custom nature. But this truck is a lot more than just pretty. Open the hood and youll find one of Fords finest: a 427 cubic inch side oiler V8. Legendary in the Cobra, its no less effective in a vintage pickup, especially when its fed by a pair of 4-barrel Holleys up top. Professionally built for reliability as well as performance, it features an MSD ignition system with adjustable timing retard and when it was all buttoned back together with factory manifolds, it grunts out an astounding 600 horsepower. A heavy-duty C6 3-speed automatic seems up to the task of harnessing all those horses, and a Currie 9-inch rear with 3.73 gears inside can take all the punishment it can dish out. An independent front suspension with power steering and disc brakes and a 4-link out back give it that low, sleek look, and classic steel wheels with 205/60/15 front and gigantic 28x12-15 Mickey Thompson meats out back. A turn-key show winner and a truck youll never get tired of driving, this amazing custom delivers a lot more than it promises. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
