This 1952 Ford F-100 Restomod has the kind of story we love. It
started as a barn find truck that was restored with a strong V8,
overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, leather-lined A/C
interior, super-slick paint, and much more. It makes for an iconic
design that's also a show-stopping custom.
Marron is a great color to have on a classic pickup. After all,
it's some of the darker tones we associate with these early 1950s
machines. But since this is a fully-built restomod, the paint also
has a terrific metallic element that really pops in the sunshine.
The big gloss highlights the curves of the fenders, rounded cab,
and alligator hood. And everything from the window glass to the
wood in the truck bed seemed to get careful attention during the
restoration. The overall look really does a nice job of blending
vintage and new. You see it in details, like the brightwork where
the mirror-like bumpers and grille trim shine just as bright as the
polished Ridler 18-inch wheels. More than just look great, this
pickup was a labor of love. The story we're told is that this
started out as a barn find pickup. The consignor went over inch in
this frame-off restoration/transformation. He worked on adding many
of the new components, but anything that needed specialized work
was sent out to the correct shops. The full restoration was
completed just a few months ago, and it has been driven less than
100 miles since then.
The interior gets the full custom treatment. It starts with two
leather bucket seats placed within a cool custom form that
surrounds them like a roadster. Matching leather door panels, plush
carpeting, and a suede headliner give this a premium and thoughtful
total presentation. There are the right comfort upgrades, like
power windows and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, you get a
banjo-style sports steering wheel on a color-matched tilt column.

The engine bay has a smooth look, and there's a powerful heart in
the middle. This is a Chevy 350 cubic-inch crate motor. These
fresher V8s are already known for their power, and this one makes
sure to really deliver it by inhaling deeply with a Holley
four-barrel carburetor. And the shorty headers add more power while
also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. It's supported
by the right components, like a serpentine belt system, HEI
ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. As you look
underneath the truck, you'll see an upgraded tubular A-arm front
suspension that makes this a nice driver. Plus, the 700R4
four-speed automatic transmission upgrades means you have overdrive
to make this easy to enjoy near or far. There's even rack & pinion
power steering and power brakes with front discs.
The sale comes with restoration photos and build receipts. They
help show the total care and investment it takes to create a labor
of love restomod like this. Call today!!!
