The F-Series was the first post-war truck design from Ford. In a
break from previous Ford trucks, the F-Series was no longer based
upon its car chassis, but on a dedicated truck platform. This
generation of the F-Series would remain in production until 1952.
F-Series trucks were assembled at sixteen different Ford factories.
The most common model was the F-1 with a 6?½-foot bed followed by
the F-2 and F-3 Express models with an 8-foot bed. It had a flat,
one-piece windshield, wider cab and integrated headlamps. Options
included the "See-Clear" windshield washer (operated by foot
plunger), passenger-side windshield wiper & sun visor, and
passenger-side taillight. The F-1 truck was also available with
additional chrome trim and two horns as an option.
This restored truck is powered by a 239 ci flathead v8 with 3 speed transmission.
