This 1949 Ford F-1 is a great flathead V8 icon that has been given some extra attitude in the right areas without ever losing its old-school charm.
Black always looks great on a vintage truck, because it instantly conveys its workman roots. But on this one it also funnels your attention to all the bright work. This includes the factory pieces like the tall grille, artful hood trim, and correct badging. Plus, this one has been upgraded on the headlight hoods, front bumper, and half-moon hubcaps with full polished surrounds. The result is instant charisma as both the classic and hot rod crowds find something to enjoy on this one.
The vintage and upgraded worlds nicely integrate inside, too. The custom red and black bench seat is a great upgrade in comfort and style. Plus, the dolphin gauges match this color scheme while also keeping you better informed than the factory setup. But nothing beats the old-school truck feeling when you grab the large three-spoke steering wheel with your left hand, and rest your right one on the tall gear stick. Even the classic heater is still working to give you that perfect nostalgic feeling every time you take this out on an early morning.
There's nothing quite like the sound and power delivery of a Ford flathead V8. This 239 cubic-inch motor gives some of the best power from the immediate post-WWII era. Just like the rest of the truck, this has been given a little upgrade in flair with the bright air topper and bold red block. Plus, you have some very worthwhile upgrades like a 12-volt electrical system, alternator, and power steering. These enhance the driving experience without taking away the industrial symphony of simplicity that makes these F-1s irresistible. After all, the hum of the dual exhaust combined with the mechanical feel of the three-speed manual transmission is a hypnotic mix that will have you searching for the long way home.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the iconic classic truck with a hint of hot rod flair. It's a terrific mix of everything you want, and it's ready to roll. Call now!
