This 1951 Ford F-4 COE Sleeper is a full custom creation that has a
unique presentation, upgraded comforts, and big block V8 power. And
more than just looking like an aged big rig, it really has some
true long-haul driver qualities, right down to the sleeper cab.
People are going to marvel at an F-4 COE (Cab Over Engine). It all
starts with the patina. This is a more recent build with only 12
miles on the odometer, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have
history. Sometimes people will make age a finish to look like it
has been going to work for decades, but they didn't make up the
signs on the doors. They are authentic, and you can still find the
successor business in Marietta, Georgia today. So the classic
lettering is now cleared in to preserved for many years to come.
While the cab is a terrific classic, the full build is very custom.
It's built on a GMC 1-ton truck chassis for modern strength. It
allows for custom pieces to be installed, like the attached sleeper
cab with built-in cargo doors. The custom truck bed is a nice touch
with classic Chevy rounded fenders. There are even practical
features, like clear/bright upgraded headlights, Line X liner paint
protecting the bed, large side mirrors, and a trailer hitch on the
rear. And it keeps a true big rig style with 8-lug Alcoa-style
wheels with duallys in the rear.
The interior keeps hints of vintage and patina style, but the full
setup also adds plenty of comfort. That's why you have a set of
modern leather bucket seats up front, and yours even power adjusts
to the ideal position. In fact, it's set up to be a solid driver
with a tilt steering column and a full set of upgraded gauges.
There's an AM/FM/CD stereo that has a modern USB input and
Bluetooth. And the sleeper in the back makes the whole cab both
spacious and useful.
Back in the day, a Ford like this was considered to be lucky if you
got flathead V8 power. But that won't do in a custom like this.
Instead, it has a 454 cubic-inch V8 that was originally built for
motorhome duty. It has been upgraded with an Edelbrock AVS2
four-barrel carburetor, new belts, new hoses, and a new radiator
with electric fan. So it's far more torque and better cooling than
you even got in the 1950s. The TH400 three-speed automatic
transmission is a stout but smooth unit that has new features like
the pan gasket, fluid, and filter. Power steering, power brakes,
and front discs are all part of a thoughtful package that makes
this cool custom truly useful.
So if you're looking to eat away miles and turn a ton of heads, you
know you can't miss this Ford. Call today!!!
