Description:

Who hasn''t dreamed of a clean, rugged old truck to use as a toy? Nice enough to show anywhere, but not so clean that you''re afraid to throw a few bags of mulch in the bed at the garden center, this 1949 Ford F1 is ideal for the guy who still likes his toys to work for a living. There''s no more popular color on these great old haulers than Vermillion Red, and it was true back in 1949 as well. Nicely finished to period-correct standards, the contrasting black fenders are a traditional look that always looks great. Bodywork is nicely done with the kind of fit and finish you''d expect from a vintage truck, offering just enough character that was earned the hard way. There''s enough chrome to remind you that even trucks cared about style-just look at the stainless strips running along the sides of the hood, framing the vents and the simple grille that still echoes in today''s F150. Running boards were also an important feature on pickups, allowing easy access to the bed, and those on this truck carry accessory step plates. The bed features maple which is hard and tough, so don''t be afraid to put this truck back to work, although it has probably been decades since it''s carried anything more substantial than a cooler and a pair of folding chairs. The interior is largely stock, with a brown vinyl bench seat, painted steel door panels, and a rubber mat on the floor that was ideal for work boots and job sites. The big steering wheel makes up for the lack of power steering, so the truck feels nimble on the street and is easy to park, and it offers a great view of the gauges, which appear to be in original condition. A pair of auxiliary gauges has been installed below the center stack, and as a truck a radio was optional and it''s kind of nice to not see some modern head unit stuffed into the dash. The long shifter controls a 4-speed manual gearbox, but you probably won''t need first gear unless you''re pulling stumps out on the back 40. Simple and rugged was the name of the game, and this truck wears it proudly. Ford flathead V8s are wonderful engines, and we believe the one under the hood of this F1 is the original piece-it sure looks the part. Well-maintained, but not detailed for show, it''s exactly what you''d expect from a truck with a little dirt under its fingernails. Truck motor colors varied by year and in 1949, engines were Ford blue, so it looks awfully original under there, right down to the factory carburetor. Details like the fabric coolant hoses and correct clamps and an accessory air filter offer a period look, and a dual exhaust system make the most of the flathead''s abilities, so it cruises at 45-50 MPH with a great flathead rumble. 65-16 LT wide whitewall tires on painted steel wheels with full hubcaps and trim rings are a great way to dress up the little truck while keeping its period feel on the road. If you''re having trouble convincing yourself that a new toy is what you need, consider one that''s practical as well as fun: this Ford F1 pickup. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
