TURN-KEY SHOW TRUCK, CHROMED OUT 454 DUAL CARB MOTOR, TILT, AC, GREAT PRICE!
Look at the quality of this awesome 1948 Ford panel truck, the detailing, and then take a second glance at the price tag. Seriously, you couldn't build this truck for three times the asking price, and here it is, ready to start collecting trophies this summer at all the big events.
The popularity of the panel truck isn't a new phenomenon, and when they're as beautifully finished as this slick '48, it's easy to understand why. With subtlety as its calling card, this awesome cream van makes onlookers stop and take in the details, which is where it truly shines. Arrow-straight bodywork? Check. Cool graphics? Yep. A wicked hot-rod stance and a ton of attitude? Got it covered. The original shape remains 100% intact, but things like the louvered hood, shaved door handles, and custom pinstripes all add up to one cool fat-fendered Ford. The side-mirrors are modern pieces that look like they belong on the vintage sheetmetal, and the bumpers were clearly borrowed from something else but look so right only an expert would know for sure. Workmanship is excellent throughout, with a high-quality finish and expert attention to detail that will make this one a show-stopper.
If your mom drove a Buick when you were a kid, perhaps you'll recognize the power front bench, which was borrowed intact from an '86 Buick wagon and then upholstered in a red patterned fabric that's so funky it's cool. The original dashboard was filled and smoothed, then stuffed full of digital gauges in their own billet panel, and a discreet A/C unit was tucked underneath. Matching door panels and carpets complete the interior, along with that cavernous cargo bay that has been finished to the same high standards. An AM/FM/CD stereo was mounted overhead in a custom console and speakers were stashed throughout the interior, so you never have to go anywhere without a soundtrack. Everything is standard, including power windows, a tilt wheel, keyless entry, and a matching leather-wrapped steering wheel.
This truck delivers with a 454 cubic inch V8 topped by dual quads by Edelbrock and a whole lot of chrome detailing. Finished to show standards, the engine bay glitters in the light such that you might need to warn onlookers on a sunny day. The list of chrome bits includes the intake, valve covers, air cleaners, and even the master cylinder lid. There's a massive radiator up front that easily keeps it cool under all conditions, even with the A/C blasting, and the plumbing is neatly done throughout for a professional look. The front suspension is fortified with a Fatman Fabrications Mustang II setup with disc brakes and a fat sway bar, while there's a Ford 9-inch out back hanging on '49 Ford leaf springs and a set of air shocks. The stance is ideal, especially with those staggered Torque-Thrust wheels wearing fat BFGoodrich radials.
This is a shockingly nice truck for an astoundingly reasonable price. You won't find many nicer, and it's still eminently practical. Call today!
