Here's the truck that defines “Old School.” This 1950 Ford F-1 has a timeless style, legendary flathead V8 power, and the kind of gloss that makes you instantly nostalgic. And because this has been expertly restored, you truly get to drive your memories.
You know you want this truck. It has those original good looks that can instantly transport you to another time. But just like your best memories, this one seems to have a little better presentation then they did back then. After all, the Merlot Jewel paint has more depth than they could get in 1950 – but this extra gloss just instantly reminds you of the optimistic post-war period. The enhanced paint needs the best brightwork to go with it. So the bumpers are true chrome kings, and all the trim is complete and mirror-like. Even the real wood in the truck bed and along the sides have that high quality gloss that comes from a solid investment. It's all finished off with two-piece bright wheel covers that frame the color-matched steelies and iconic whitewall tires.
Inside, this one continues to provide the right period-correct feeling mixed with the right subtle comfort upgrades. For example, the tan bench seat is now covered in supple leather. And while most of these came with rubber floors, you have the comfort and insulation that comes from well-trimmed carpeting. The exterior-matching deep maroon looks great as it returns on the doors and dash, and there's a touch of brightwork seen throughout. But overall, you get that great old school pickup feeling where the heater is your only workman option and three-spoke wheel is grooved for the perfect grip.
The 239 cubic-inch Ford flathead V8 looks fantastic as the bold blue components radiate from within the dark engine bay. You can tell they focused on this V8 during restoration, and it was even converted to 12-volts and an alternator during its rebuild. But these upgrades never get in the way of the vintage charm. After all, people instantly recognize pieces like the parallel radiator pipes, tall carburetor (recently rebuilt), and the big oil bath air topper. And you'll even get to tell them about how this is still wearing the period-correct head casting. The flathead fires right up, and it instantly gives off an industrial symphony of simplicity. The dual exhaust gives a hint of growl, and you control it all with the rebuilt three-speed manual transmission.
This restored Ford does a terrific job of delivering all the feelings of shiny and faithful nostalgia. So if you're ready for the best memories tomorrow, you need to call us today!
