For Sale: 1949 Ford F1 in Vero Beach, Florida

Vehicle Description

The first post-war truck offered by Ford, the F-1 was first introduced in 1948. It was the first Ford truck to be built on a dedicated truck platform, versus the previous shared car platform Ford utilized. The F-1 was a stronger, more capable truck. The F-1 would enhance Ford's truck business, ultimately carrying it to sales leadership. With several innovative features, options and engine configurations, the F-1 was a truck with wide appeal to a large audience of truck buyers.

This 1949 F-1 Pickup is the result of an extreme body-off restoration where no expense was spared and strict attention was paid to every detail in the restoration process. With all-steel body and fenders and finished in a one-of-a-kind color combination of Champagne and Emerald Green, this truck wins the attention of all who see it. The restoration included replacement of all glass, rubber gaskets, period-correct tires and oak box bed. All chrome and stainless steel was replaced and the truck was upgraded to a 12-volt electrical system. The highly detailed engine compartment demonstrates the attention to detail and the 239 cubic inch flathead V8 runs like a watch. On the interior, brown vinyl seating and flawless champagne dash provide a further example of the high caliber of this restoration.

Unless stated otherwise, vehicle mileage on title is exempt and unknown if original.
