Ford’s legendary F-Series began in January of 1948, with eight levels of trucks: F-1 for half-ton pickup, F-2 for three-quarter to, up to the F-7 and F-8 heavy duty trucks. In 1952, the last year of the Bonus-Built series, Ford introduced an overhead-valve 215-cid six-cylinder engine, rated at 101 horsepower. The Flathead Ford V8, still at 239-cid, got a bump in compression ratio, increasing output to 106 horsepower. Hood trim was revamped, and front grille color was changed from silver to white. 1952 was the last year of this body style before Ford Motor Company celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1953 and completely restyled the truck with an expanded cab, new grille and larger cargo bed.
This truck sports the larger Flathead V8 and has been tastefully restored, donning a sharp excellent Petty blue paint job with yellow wheels to perfectly match. It also includes a brand-new interior, door panels and headliner that make for a comfortable ride. It has been lowered to the perfect height to give it a true hot-rod stance. This truck is a real head-turner!
