For Sale: 1949 Ford F1 in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1949 Ford F-1 Pickup Truck underwent an extensive frame off restoration and is absolutely stunning! In 1948, the Ford Motor Company launched its new body stylings for its truck lines which replaced the aging pre-war designs which were carried forward into 1947. Additionally, Ford introduced its new truck naming conventions with the debut of the "F-Series" trucks, the F-1, F-2, etc., with the Ford F-Series still going strong today and sitting at the top of the best selling trucks of all time. When 1949 rolled around, Ford debuted some of its most drastic changes to its passenger car lines since the Model A replaced the Model T, but the truck lines were not completely neglected especially at the heavier-duty end of the truck spectrum. In 1949, the United States was also in the midst of an economic recession, which likely caused a slowing of light duty truck sales. Nonetheless, Ford instituted several minor stylistic changes to the '49 F-1 Pickup trucks including the elimination of the red stripe on the grille bars and the elimination of body color-matched wheels. On the inside of the F-1, sun visors, glove boxes, and ash trays, all became standard equipment and catered to driver comfort. This particular truck comes to us after being the beneficiary of an extensive frame-off restoration from the hands of collectors who clearly cherished this classic Ford pickup truck. Under the hood on this '49 Ford 1/2 Ton Pickup is a 239 Cubic Inch Flathead V8 engine paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor that pushed out 100 horsepower in its day. A 3 speed manual transmission backs the 239 V8 Flatty and is shifted using a floor mounted shifter that makes this classic truck a joy to drive! Exhaust exits the Ford Flathead via a dual exhaust setup with chrome deflector tips. Riding on blackwall radial tires on red painted rims with Ford hubcaps and beauty rings, this '49 Ford F1 has a great look and even better ride. The all steel pickup box and tailgate, along with the wood bed with metal runners, are all in fantastic, like-new condition. Likewise the chrome and brightwork around the exterior of the truck is in superb shape as well. A pair of front fog lamps also add to the classic appearance of this post-war truck. The exterior has been beautifully refinished in Meadow Green paint and shows particularly well. The interior on this 1949 F-1 1/2 Ton Pickup is immaculate! The bench seat has been beautifully reupholstered in brown tufted vinyl and the headliner was reupholstered in grey cloth, both of which show exceptionally well. The dash and door panels are painted beautifully in Meadow Green paint, matching the exterior look of the truck. The dash and steering wheel appear to be in their stock configuration and are in fantastic, show-quality condition. The dash is equipped with a 100 MPH speedometer, oil pressure gauge, battery gauge, temperature gauge, and fuel gauge. Whether you're looking to add to you classic pickup truck collector or you're buying your first classic truck, this 1949 Ford F-1 Pickup Truck would make an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
