SOLID, CLEAN, FUN, 239 FLATHEAD V8, CLASSIC AMERICANA, NICE PAINT/INT, GR8 WOOD!
Sometimes your classic can also be a workhorse. This 1951 Ford F1 has been given all the right updates and maintenance so that it could just as easily pick up cattle feed, as it could go for a Sunday morning pleasure drive.
You know you want this truck. It has those original good looks that can instantly transport you to another time, and just like a tough grandfather, aged does not mean frail. This pickup has the old school rugged design that looks like it wants teach modern pickups a bare-knuckles lesson. You know the truck can still haul home this weekend's lumberyard load (heck, there's enough real oak wood in the bed that it IS the weekend's lumber run!) The Sheridan Blue body is the color of quiet strength. It's a very nice contrast to the big white grille whose chunky, industrial appearance seems indestructible, and the whitewall tires are a must-have to round out the period-correct appearance. Plus, the two-piece wheels and the small accents on the hood add a dash of flash. Ok, you probably want this Ford for all those reasons, plus it's at a value price that barely buys a new base model F-150 today.
Inside is a cab built for long-lasting function. There's plenty of dashboard space, thanks to an uncluttered feel that only has to make room for the heater. Muddy work boots are not a problem because the rubber floor mat means this cleanup is as simple as a garden hose. Despite this utilitarian feel, there have been a couple of nice upgrades, such as the brakes are now connected to LED rear lights so there's no doubt that others see you on the road. This Ford's blue-collar roots are immediately known when you grab three-spoke wheel and feel the groves of all the workers who relied on similar pickups for decades. There is no radio, but it will hardly be missed because this pickup will make you want to whistle a worker's tune on every road trip.
If you're not into making your own music, there is one other sound that never gets old. The 239 cubic-inch Ford flathead V8 offers good all-around power and gives off an industrial symphony of simplicity. It is a classic rhythmic roar that feels like being in charge of a mini locomotive as the tempo increases with the acceleration. This one has been cared for correctly, and the consignor has installed a new gas tank, new fuel lines, rebuilt the carb, new wiring, and added an alternator, as well as an electric fuel pump. So yes, this pickup is still ready to work. The three-on-the-tree transmission shifts crisply and the brakes have been properly maintained. In the end, this truck is solid, making sure that the full experience behind the wheel is pure positive nostalgia.
Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, it's up to you to choose this truck's fate. Will it be the most original pickup at the car show? Will it be the best looking errand cruiser around town? Or both? Call today!!
