Ford must have done something right when they introduced their F
series of Pickups back in 1948 as they have spanned 14 different
generations and are still in production today. Not only are they
still produced but continue to be one of the highest overall
selling vehicles since the late 70s/early 80s. The 1950 F1 you see
here is a really neat pickup. It has a clean Texas title and is
very solid. It has a TON of potential. It was originally built to
be a shop truck and has that perfect patina look to it. The purpose
was to able to both use and have fun in it. That being said if you
decided to restore it, this truck would be an excellent starting
place. The floor pan is solid with no issues. The truck has been
kept looking mostly stock and wears nice chrome bumpers and all of
its original lighting. All of the lights work properly and a third
brake light has been added for better visibility. It also has
electric 2 speed wipers and self cancelling turn signals. The truck
rides on a set of White 15 inch wheels with dog dish Ford hubcaps
and Radial tires.
Powering the F1 is a Ford V8 Flathead that has around 10,000 miles
on it since being rebuilt. It was bored .125 over and fitted with a
4 inch Mercury crank, hydraulic adjustable lifters, mild cam, new
pistons, Mercury heads, Offenhauser aluminum intake, 4 barrel
Holley carb, 12V alternator, and electronic ignition. It also just
had recent exhaust work with headers into dual exhaust which
deliver a great sound. Keeping it cool is an aluminum radiator that
has electric fan that is thermostat controlled. The transmission is
a 5 speed manual out of a S10 that shifts well. The brakes and
steering is the original set up but work well. It has a straight
axle front end with lowering front springs.
The interior has been kept mostly original with the stock style
dash layout. It has a bench seat done in Maroon upholstery and
White piping. The speedometer, odometer, fuel, and oil pressure
gauges in the dash are all working correctly. A second panel was
added below the dash for temperature and voltmeter. A tachometer
has also been added on the column. A JVC AM/FM/CD player mounted
below the center stock Ford trim piece. The new headliner has a
working dome light and the sun visors were redone as well.
This is a really cool pickup that drives very well. It would like
right at home with vintage shop signage painted on the side.
Whether you use it run for parts or decide to restore it, the truck
certainly has a lot of potential.
