This 1948 Ford F-1 is one cool pickup. A slick two-tone red exterior, custom A/C interior, and upgraded V8 power under the hood create one of the most interesting vintage trucks you'll enjoy driving everywhere.
1948 is the first year for the first-generation Ford F-series, so this truck will always hold a special place in our enthusiast hearts. But there's a lot more distinction here than just history. You see it the moment the sunlight hits this paint. Yes, that's a two-tone red. The way the fenders and running boards are a deeper tone than the cherry hue of the hood, cab, and bed gives this Ford a bit of a modern flair without losing its vintage feeling. The same goes for the wheel package. Whitewalls with two-piece trim have a terrific classic feel, but the more aggressive stance lets you know there's something extra special about this truck.
Inside is more classic pieces with an eye for upgraded flair. After all, you could never get a two-tone red and white bench seat in '48. More than just look great, the fold down armrest means there's an individual level of comfort you just don't get in most classic pickups. Plus, you'll love the details like how the door panels, sun visors, and headliner have been upgraded to match the seats. The steering wheel has the classic dual-spoke design but with a smaller diameter for easier handling. This classic has all the right modern amenities, including cold R134a air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD stereo, tilt steering column, Lokar shifter, and a full set of Classic Instruments gauges.
While the flathead is a fine V8 available from Ford in '48, having an upgrade to Chevy 350 power makes this a terrific modern classic. In fact, the engine upgrade means you also get the reliable TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. Good power and great usability is the central them of the build, and that's why it has the right supporting components like an independent front suspension and a Walker aluminum radiator. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and a modern tread under those classic whitewalls, and you have one of the most interesting pickups you can comfortably take near or far.
A distinct, comfortable, and historic total package like this is quite a unique find. So don't miss your chance. Call now!
