Excellent Road Manners and Driving Characteristics
The new F-1 pickup truck of 1948 was an important vehicle for Ford.
Not only was it Ford's first new post-war vehicle, but it was also
one of the first pickup trucks to be designed with both
practicality and aesthetics in mind. A stylish body with incredible
functionality, this was a truck that would be as comfortable
driving down Main Street as it would be working on the farm. 1953
brought Ford's 50th anniversary and the newly redesigned F100, a
tradition which would forever change the automotive industry.
Among the Very Best Examples in Existence
With single family ownership from new, offered here is simply put -
one of the finest Ford F100s existence. Completed on the 29th of
November in Glacier Blue, F10D3R-23642 was a known resident of
Berkley, California. Locals could always find the truck parked at
the family's gas station or automotive shop (Eddie Neff's) on
University Ave. Eddie Neff's was a celebrated front-end shop in the
area from 1929 until the mid-1980's - servicing everything from
Fords to Ferraris. Both Eddie and his son Vern were the proprietors
throughout the decades. After Vern closed the business, he and
friends restored vehicles onsite (mostly Lotus racing cars), and
there the truck was meticulously disassembled, photo documented
restored over the span of several years.
Fortunately, nearly the entire process was captured through photos,
with stunning results. The current mileage of 1,260 represents the
distance driven post-restoration. Now exquisitely finished in
correct 1953 Coral Flame over coordinating vinyl upholstery, nearly
every detail of the truck appears accurate and period authentic.
Starting with a solid "California Car", the F100 retains excellent
gaps, straight body, original spot welds, castings and number
stamps, proper finishes, decals, metal tags, cloth wiring,
etchings, fittings, equipment, and components throughout the entire
A correct 6-volt charging system has been retained, paired to all
working electrical and safety equipment, including the radio. The
engine's casting number EAA6015C properly corresponds; engine
number REX58296 is stamped into the side. A high-quality example of
a landmark Ford truck, it was briefly shown early after restoration
in years past, while continuously remaining under family care with
a current California registration. For the first time since 1953,
we proudly offer F10D3R-23642 for worldwide purchase and delivery
from our Houston, Texas showroom.
