For Sale: 1953 Ford Truck in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1953 Ford Cabover C-600 has the kind of tall and imposing style that commands attention. And with a well-built small block V8, cool patina, a more comfortable interior, and all that lumber on the flatbed, this has the right mix of nostalgia and runabout that will have you thinking about what you can do with all this commercial-grade appeal.

This cabover has the classic look of the F-Series you love. In fact, the second-gen truck's big fenders seem even larger and the hood is absolutely taller. So it amplifies the best fundamentals of the design. Cab running lights, air horns on the roof, and side grab handles to help you into the tall cab are all part of the industrial-grade details. Everything fits together well with just the right looks of use. And patina vehicles are awesome because they celebrate the look of real classics that look like they have survived decades of working hard. So it only gets cooler on a COE (cab over engine) truck. After all, these were built to go to work, and so its aged-in style is even more earned. And one of the places this one still looks job-ready is the flatbed. We love the style of the wood that looks like it was taken from an old shop floor and then sealed for work duty. And the steel parameter has the fittings if you want to create a stake-side bed. So you can have this ready for everything from carrying your motorcycle to showcasing business products. There's even a proper trailer hitch on the rear.

The interior was updated to add comfort while remaining working-class. For example, the set of bucket seats is nicer than anything that this C-600 had originally because they give you good bolstering, adjustment, and a fold-down armrest. But it's more about being comfortable than fancy. There's also an upgraded shifter, a diamond plate style floor, and SunPro readouts under the dash. And the AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and remote makes for a real cruiser. The steel door panels, patina dash, and large dual-spoke steering are all still there to remind you that this is a 1950s machine.

Under the hood is where this one fully deviates from the past. You're going to love the extra power that comes from a fresher 350 cubic-inch Goodwrench crate V8. It has all the right pieces like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and headers feeding a custom dual exhaust. There's also a three-speed automatic transmission, and so unlike a 1950s industrial machine, you don't have to do the shifting. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and newer Goodyear tires turn this classic worker into a solid in-town cruiser.

This 1953 Ford is a great updated classic that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. So if you're ready for industrial-sized cool, call today!
