This 1950 Ford F-1 is an awesome kind of custom vintage pickup that
takes the freight train-like commanding appearance, and adds in
some terrific upgrades like A/C and serious V8 power.
The Ford F-1 is arguably the best-looking post-war truck. While they all have a basic industrial attractiveness, this example is a cut-above because of its customizing. It starts with the bold yellow color. Painting a pickup like a Ferrari will certainly grab attention, and there is even a yellow light kit so you can project this color further at night. It's total presentation is the perfect balance of looking fantastic, without setting off alarms to people that this is a non-driving trailer queen. After all, this pickup was built to enjoy. The front grille is blacked out like a true muscle machine. It gives the rest of the brightwork a chance to really standout in places like the bumpers, exhaust tips, and the stylish Ridler wheels that are staggered 17/18 inches front/rear to help give this F-1 an aggressive stance. The real wood bed has a high gloss shine that tells you any duty this pickup has seen since its custom build has been done with great care.
The interior continues this feeling of upgraded performance, with an aggressive black vinyl that has all the right premium touches. After all, the all-black has a clean-n-mean appearance we all love, but then you see the great details like the perforated seating areas and the diamond stitching in the velour headliner. There are also great premium features like an AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold air conditioning. But from the moment you slip behind the custom steering wheel and grab the floor shifter, you know this pickup is all about the drive. There's a full custom VDO gauge setup directly in front of you, and that large Sun Super Tach is a clear indication there's something special under the hood.
One quick look in the engine bay, and you'll know that's not a Ford motor. It's not much of a worry that this blue oval has Chevy power because the 350 cubic-inch V8 is one of the most versatile and upgradeable powerplants around. In fact, this one already has go-fast improvements installed such as the GM Performance intake, four-barrel carburetor, performance headers, and a sweet sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust. So yes, you're going to love this Chevy power. The V8's muscle is handled by a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission before being sent to a Ford 9-inch rear end. Plus, you've got some great upgrades to keep you feeling good on the road, like the Chevy independent front suspension, and newer wide performance rubber at all four corners.
This is the truck that looks cool and keeps you cool on the inside. It's a Ford pickup that attracts a lot of attention, but the enthusiast who will enjoy it most is the one sitting behind the wheel. Make it yours today! Call now!!
