This 1951 Ford F-1 is a unique build. It has a cool classic style
inside and out. But as you dig a little deeper, it has the right
upgrades for a better cruiser, including an updated motor and
cold-blowing A/C. And so this is one for those who love a true
Red is a color that always looks good on classic machines. There's
a good gloss in the sunshine, but the overall finish will never
make you nervous about taking it out for a drive. And that's the
overall theme of a cool cruiser. There's a quality here that comes
from the fundamentals, like straight body panels and doors that
shut solid. And the brightwork on the bumpers, trim, and distinct
grille has the shine that will get you noticed. You'll see all the
best classic details, like the step plates on the running boards
and real wood in the truck bed. And we like how this still keeps

you fit better cruising tires.
The interior is an intertwined two-tone red and white that
continues the feeling of a vintage machine. The side panels, door
handles, headliner, and upholstery have a clean and period-correct
feel. The wide bench seat, large three-spoke steering wheel, and
airy cab are pure old-school fun. But the Dolphin gauge package and

a few decades younger motor, it usually means a small block V8, but
the update here is a bit more thoughtful. This appears to be a 240

Ford inline motors. So you have an updated powerhouse utilizing one
of the best truck engines. And it also has the right upgrades like
the 12-volt system and an alternator. Even with the updated motor,
you still feel nostalgic going down the road thanks to the
column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
This is the first-gen Ford F-Series that respects its history while
also being a strong cruiser for today. That makes for the kind of
unique classic that you know deserves to be in your garage. Call
