This is one for the haulers, attention getters, and anyone who
loves unique vintage trucks. After all, how often do you ever see a
1947 Ford One-Ton Stake Bed? But with a 289 V8, cool paint, and all
that lumber, this truck has been nicely restored to bring nostalgia
to the commercial-grade field.
Do you have a business to promote or just want to make a splash at
car shows? Imagine parking this vintage stake truck at your front
door and/or taking up two spaces at an enthusiast event. After all,
people are going to marvel at a truck like this. In 1947 this was
the kind of industrial machine that got us moving again immediately
after WWII. And now this has been given the right investments to be
a showpiece without losing its heritage. For example, the gray
metallic paint is borrowed from a modern Ford palette. So you get a
modern shine, but in a color that doesn't look out of place for the
1940s. Plus, the all the trim is complete and finished in a matte
color, so it coordinates nicely with the paint. There's only about
300 miles on this one since it completed its restoration, and so
you see great details, like the new roof lights on the cab and
fresh rubber around the new windows. And the tires are new on the
industrial-sized 20-inch wheels (six in total, because this is a
hard-working dually.) A fresh build also means fresh lumber in the
10-foot stake-side flatbed that's going to get you a ton of
The interior was restored to remain working-class all the way, but
that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The durable bench seat
is part of an easy-to-clean package to make maintenance a snap. And
the four-spoke steering wheel has that great vintage feeling that
instantly connects you to generations of hard workers that came
before you. But then you start to notice some very handy upgrades.
For example, there's modern insulation/sound proofing material
under the carpeting. And you've got a full set of modern gauges,
including a handy column-mounted tach.
Under the hood is where this one really deviates from the past.
You're going to love the extra power that comes from a fresher 289
cubic-inch V8. It has all the right pieces like a Holley
four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, MSD Street Fire plug
wires, and a nice dual exhaust. There are plenty of new components,
like the starter solenoid, belts, hoses, and alternator (fully
upgraded to a 12-volt system.) The four-speed transmission is a
true 1947 unit, but it has a new clutch, pressure plate, and
throwout bearing. So that means a classic experience that you can
enjoy with confidence. In fact, the restoration also included new
wheel cylinders, new king pins, new tie rod ends, and all the other
pieces you want for a solid-feeling industrial-sized classic.
Complete with restoration photos, this 1947 Ford is a great classic
pickup that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. So
