Launched in 1948, the legendary Ford F-series began as a replacement for the previous car based pickups. For the first time, Ford was building pickups on a dedicated truck platform creating a much better work horse than previously available. Classic trucks are gaining momentum in the collector auto markets. Ford's 1st F-series generation lasted from the 1948-1952 model years, but significantly changed in appearance from year to year making each version unique and pretty rare. While trucks sold well, most were obviously used for heavy work -loads leaving few surviving examples in excellent condition.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this lovely 1952 F-1 for your consideration. Coming to u from Washington, this beautiful truck was treated to a frame off restoration around eight years ago and was repainted in fire truck red. The body us in stunning shape, with great paint and great chrome. The truck sits on new American Racing wheels with newer tires and also features a full wood bed floor. Under the hood is a 239cid flathead V8 that also features Offenhauser intake and an Edelbrock carb. The interior is in amazing condition, with a clean bench seat and great dash. A factory look stereo looks good and works well and everything else appears very factory fresh.
This nice truck goes down the road very well and is a joy to drive with its 3-speed manual transmission. The truck turns heads wherever it goes and is sure to start a conversation.
