For Sale: 1952 Ford Pickup in O'Fallon, Illinois

$33,000  

Vehicle Description

This one might look like it is fresh from the field, but with only 5,000 miles on it since completion, this 1952 Ford F-1 is fresh from its build. That kind of difference gives you the patina you desire, but with plenty more comfort and a wallop of upgraded V8 power... and it is all for one heck of a price. The Ford F-1 is arguably the best-looking post-war truck. While they all have a basic industrial attractiveness, this one goes for the heart of the truck lover. The patina blue is a masterpiece done by mother nature herself. There are even some dings left in the execution for authenticity. But take a closer look, and you'll discover quite a solid body where the sheet metal is corrosion-free in all the main places, including the cab corners. The patina bumpers, weathered grille all help sell the image of a barn find (in fact, the real wood in the truck bed looks like it was made from an old barn!) But then you notice the subtle pinstriping. Plus, there is no mistaking those custom blue deep-dish wheels that have been staggered front/rear to aid in giving the lowered suspension an intimidating stance. Oh yes, this is far more than just a well-weathered machine. Inside the blue theme returns on the doors and dash but with a nice new clean paint job. You will also notice the 56' T-Bird steering wheel that gives the inside of the truck some extra flair. You will also notice the big bench seat that is setup to fit three across. Under the hood this truck continues to be secretly rewarding. This is an upgraded V8 that looks like It belongs in a show truck. The motor of choice for this rad truck is a Chevy 355 that was bored .30 over - so you get the easy upgradability of a GM small block. This V8 makes solid power with its four-barrel carburetor, and it is easy to drive anywhere with its aluminum radiator and 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission. In fact, this truck was built for cruising. That is why its original frame was painted black and the frame rails were boxed in and a X brace was also added for additional strength to the original frame to make this thing handle anything you throw at it. This F-1 is supporting Ride Tech Coil-overs, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a four-link set up; connected to a Ford 8.8 rear-end with 373 gear, TCI independent front suspension with a mustang 2 setup, and power steering. This is the cool patina you love in a fresh and thoughtful build. So, when something this appealing is also so affordable, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
