WOW!!! Just about covers it, don't you think? 1951 Ford F1 Truck, completely ground up restored with late model, extremely proven, reliable running gear...And it's all Ford!!
If you have a desire for a classic truck, and want the accoutrements we seem to all want in today's rides, but in a classic vehicle? Here you go. Turn the key, great performance, good fuel economy, Air Conditioning, easy steering, excellent braking, nice tunes, comfortable seating, and just about as cool lookin' as you can get?!! Man, this is a great truck!
Very well executed and well thought-out build, this truck was truly a “Labor of Love” as they say.
You just can't go wrong with a classic truck, and to have one restored, and upgraded the way this one is...Well, let's just say, you would all at once be thrilled, and proud to own this F1!
The high quality paint was laid down very nicely over an obviously much smoother body than this truck could have hoped for 70 years ago. The color is stunning, and unique...Very Cool!
The butter soft interior and clear classic looking gauges both beckon you to climb in and cruise all day and all night long.
Twist the key on the dash and the 281 CID 3 valve jumps to life, and runs ever so smoothly., The 5 speed automatic isn't gonna hurt your fuel economy either.
The stance along with the wheels and tires are the perfect icing on the cake, and this truck will no doubt be a favorite at the cruise-ins and car shows, not to mention the street!
Like I say, if you're considering a classic truck, and want the reliability of today's vehicles, and a laundry list of desirable options, this '51 F1 truck is definitely the way to go! Excellent!!
