Vehicle Description

1948 Ford F1 Pickup

In January 1948, a new era began at the Ford Motor Company with the release of an all-new line of trucks that Ford dubbed the "F-Series". This new series, which Ford promoted as its "Bonus Built Line" covered a wide range of models with different cab and chassis combinations. The line started out with light-duty 1/2-ton-rated pickup trucks and ran all the way up to the Extra Heavy-Duty, three-ton-rated F-8. These trucks used a completely redesigned cab with all-new front-end sheet metal. And in a departure from previous practice, the same cab served both conventional and Cab-Over-Engine models.

For consignment the first year of the new design F1 Pickup. Very nicely modified and updated in more ways than one can count. An original steel cab, a fiberglass front end and rear fenders, modern LS engine, overdrive transmission, brake upgrades and a RideTech Shockwave air ride system all work together to give you the looks of 1948 and the technology of 2022. With 628 miles on the build, you can rest assured that all the bugs are worked out and you'll be ready for miles and miles of reliable fun. Eat your heart out Henry Ford!

Satin white now bathes this truck's exterior straight steel panels and fiberglass panels. Gaps are beautifully minding themselves to be consistent, and almost all chrome has been shaved off or blacked out. A one piece fiberglass flip nose has been added but still incorporates the pontoon style fenders and bulbous hood that this truck came equipped with when new. The horizontal grille ribbing and headlight trim rings have been blacked out and the headlights converted to LED to assist with lighting your way. A black F1 badge is mounted to each cowl and matches the windshield trim and aerodynamic side mirrors nicely. Fiberglass rear fenders frame the steel bed and continue the pontoon look along with ribbed steel running boards working to connect the front and rear fenders. At the rear we note a shaved bumper, a blacked out lower center section that presents with shiny blue quad exhaust tips, and stainless-steel chains on the gate. A pristine highly glossed red stained wooden bed with black dividers and stainless bolts lines the just perfect bed. Within this beautiful bed is a repurposed Coca-Cola cooler that contains not only the battery but the control system for the RideTech air ride system. Blacked out Grand Sport style 5 spoke wheels in 18" and 19" respectively highlight this truck's low stance.

Stamped steel makes up the door panels, finished in glossy red which frames nicely polished billet style handles and cranks. Red cloth NRG Innovation reclinable racing bucket seats are nestled inside and back up to the rear of the cab. More deep gloss red for the dash which houses a Dakota Digital gauge cluster in the factory metal background. To the center, where we note the original electric shaver-esque chrome speaker cover but no stereo is seen. A glossy red Summit Racing tilt steering column with its 3 spoke polished and drilled wheel fronts the all steel dash and looks perfectly at home. The headliner and rear cab are all lined with the tight black diamond pattern cloth covering and black carpeting with clean floor mat coverings floods the floor. A Hurst shifter and assembly is noted along with a small console and the controller for the air ride system.

Flipping forward the huge one piece front end our eyes are drawn to the mecca of technology now residing in the tubular steel engine bay. A 5.3 Liter LS V8 is now taking up real estate where a humble 239ci V8 used to reside. This beautiful block is now sporting a pair of 6.0 Liter LS cylinder heads and is fed by EFI. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission is on the back of the healthy mill and sends power to a 10-bolt 3.42 Positraction geared rear courtesy of a 2000 Camaro. All parts are nicely cleaned up and the whole installation was very well thought out under this hood.

A rock solid black painted frame, independent RideTech air bag front suspension, and a Ridetech 4-link with air bag rear suspension, a new stainless-steel fuel tank, and a Wilwood 4-wheel disc brake system with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers are seen. A power rack and pinion steering system is noted along with rust free floor pans and black painted wood for the underside of the bed. Headers wrapped with ceramic heat wrap feed into a fully wrapped Magnaflow exhaust system with the aforementioned blue colored quad tips at the rear end and this truck growls at you.

I just treasure these old trucks which I think have the best aesthetic designs and they're even better with modern underpinnings. That said I hopped in, started her right up, and went for a nice cruise. It shifted smoothly, rode like a car, and stopped on a dime. Even body sway was minimized with the upgraded suspension and the RideTech system provides for infinitely adjustable ride heights. A comfortable interior, and a really nice job in all facets.

A totally redone F1 truck keeps much of its original design, has a new engine and transmission, an upgraded interior, a very modern air ride suspension system all wrapped up under the guise of a 1948 F1. Load it up boys!
