Design of the F-Series truck changed tremendously from 1950 to
1954. For 1951 and 1952, the headlights were connected by a wide
aerodynamic cross piece with three similarly aerodynamic supports.
The rear window was wider in these later trucks and the dashboard
was redesigned. This new cab was called the "Five-Star Cab". For
1951, the grille was restyled with a large horizontal bar, moving
the headlights further apart, painted either ivory or argent, with
either painted or chrome headlight trim; the hood trim was also
redesigned. If specified, a V-8 emblem appeared on the front fascia
above the grille opening. The truck underwent several revisions,
with the cab receiving a larger rear window and updated door
panels; for pickup trucks, the tailgate was redesigned, along with
the introduction of a hardwood floor. This beautiful example of
Ford's iconic F-3 has undergone a complete, frame on restoration
and features rebuilt engine, clutch, and 4 spd transmission, all
new suspension components, new interior, new paint, and refinished
wood bed. Rides on new radial tires. Owner is contemplating
replacing original 4spd trans with a 3spd half-ton trans for ease
of driving. Truck will be sold with both transmissions if this is
the case. If you are looking for a complete, turn key, restored F-3
for less than it would cost to do one yourself, this is the truck.
