For Sale: 1951 Ford F1 in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1951 Ford F1 Pickup

The 1951 Ford pickup was a pivotal member of Ford's "Bonus Built" line of postwar trucks. The line was announced early in 1948 and ran through 1952. It was the broadest roster in Ford truck history, spanning vehicles from half-ton pickups to three-ton commercial haulers.

For consignment and gracing our Hallowed Halls, we have the pleasure to host this one, a 1951 Ford F1 pickup. Fully restored, some tricks added, and a really nice turnkey example to be used as a daily driver, or an excellent promotional piece. All bathed in retina searing yellow with some 15-inch chrome Astroblade wheels, and always a trophy winner when our consignor's husband was showing thetruck from 1999 to 2016.

Exterior
Leading the way are the two rounded front fenders, that melt themselves into the grille which is flanked by a single headlight on either side. This large fender rolls past a nose shaped rounded hood that flows on to the bottom the contour of these fenders and has the trim spear in chrome with the Ford badge along with the F1 designation within this spear. F O R D is also attached to the front to the leading edge and a very small V8 chromed graphic badge is topping the front of the hood. A cream white toothy grille floats just above the clean chrome front bumper. As the fenders move towards the doors, they morph into black running boards which dangle below the doors and allow access to the cab. These boards move straight towards the rear, where they swoop upward, and form the rear rounded fenders, which frame the metal sides of the bed of this truck. On the back is the white Ford painted on badge in script form which presents itself in the middle of the tailgate. The rear bumper has been beautifully chromed, and now dual round blue dot tail lights flank the tailgate. Down below aredual chrome exhaust tips. In the middle is the rounded cab, with straight doors, perfectly chromed outside mirrors, and handles, and all yellow window surrounds. All surfaces are nicely painted,however we note some body filler in a few areas thatis starting to crack and show some age. A pristine oak and metal strapped bed makes up the nice floor of the bed. 15-inch chrome Astrobladewheels are highly polished present on all 4 corners wrapped in blackwall radials.

Interior
Featured is a "Million Dollar Cab", (it cost $1 million to design and tool), which Ford proclaimed. It had "Living-Room" comfort, and it was much higher and wider than before, and better fitted. This cab features a better than factory black covered vinyl bench seat. This stretches from pristine door panel to pristine door panel also making use of the black vinyl and some exterior paint color on the metal surfaces of these doors. Upfront is an original looking restored dash which now has 2 round gauges in front of the black bakelite steering wheel. In the middle a ribbed speaker panel painted white with some chrome highlighting trim above. Just below is a train horn controller along with a first aid kit. On the passenger's side is the glovebox and below black heater box. Black colored clean carpet floods the floors and rising proudly from the center is a long gear shift lever, with a black knobbed topper, well within ergonomic reach of the driver. The headliner is black utilitarian hard thin fiberboard and is perfectly and neatly inserted above.

Drivetrain
Under the hood a 350ci V8 engine, in orangish/red block paint and highly polished chrome all backed up to a yellow painted steel firewall. A red water pump, red oil filler tube, chrome alternator, and air cleaner cover also adorn this mill as jewelry, and it is topped with a 4-barrel Holley carburetor and red painted Edelbrock Torker intake. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is installed and sends power back to a Dana 44 rear axle.

Undercarriage
Leaf springs for the front and rear, are attached to a black painted frame. All is structurally sound with only minor road dirt and light surface rust. A Turbo muffler style dual exhaust forms after the downward spiral of the exhaust manifolds on the sides of this 350ci V8. Power disc brakes are on the front and power drums are seen in the rear.

Drive-Ability
The truck ran fine with nice acceleration, good handling and it looks just great doing this. The braking was biasfree during our panic stop test and all functions were operational at the time of our drive. We do note that the shifter must be jiggled to get the truck to start, most likely a simple adjustment will correct this issue.

It's so simple for this consignment, walk in, grab the key, turn it on, drive it, pay for it, then drive it away and enjoy it for years to come. All the blood, sweat, and tears has been put into this F-1, with just excellent looks, and performance to beat the band. How's that for blowing its horn!
