BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE FORD! 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRT DISC, GREAT PAINT/INTERIOR!

This 1953 Ford F-100 pickup doesn't necessarily break any new ground in the vintage truck game, but what it does offer is a slick classic look that's supremely well-executed and powered by reliable Chevy 350 V8 power. Arguably the best-looking pickup of the 1950s, the first-year F-100 makes a great-looking hot rod without altering a single panel, and if you crave lots of attention, this custom truck delivers in a big way.

Bright red always works well on vintage pickup trucks, but this particular shade of Mars Red is so bright and vivid that you need sunglasses to look directly at it. Mixed up by PPG, it's a basecoat/clearcoat paint that was expertly applied over laser straight sheetmetal, and it has such a deep luster and shine you'd think any fly that landed on it might drown. Custom pinstripe work was added for a bespoke touch, and the colors chosen for the accents really work great up against the red finish, especially on the 'Ford' script on the tailgate. None of the old Ford's beautiful body lines were altered during the build, but everything was neatly restored and fitted, so the gaps are exacting and even the big hood fits evenly with the fenders. It's the kind of detail that you ... Please ask for the full description.

BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE FORD! 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRT DISC, GREAT PAINT/INTERIOR!

This 1953 Ford F-100 pickup doesn't necessarily break any new ground in the vintage truck game, but what it does offer is a slick classic look that's supremely well-executed and powered by reliable Chevy 350 V8 power. Arguably the best-looking pickup of the 1950s, the first-year F-100 makes a great-looking hot rod without altering a single panel, and if you crave lots of attention, this custom truck delivers in a big way.

Bright red always works well on vintage pickup trucks, but this particular shade of Mars Red is so bright and vivid that you need sunglasses to look directly at it. Mixed up by PPG, it's a basecoat/clearcoat paint that was expertly applied over laser straight sheetmetal, and it has such a deep luster and shine you'd think any fly that landed on it might drown. Custom pinstripe work was added for a bespoke touch, and the colors chosen for the accents really work great up against the red finish, especially on the 'Ford' script on the tailgate. None of the old Ford's beautiful body lines were altered during the build, but everything was neatly restored and fitted, so the gaps are exacting and even the big hood fits evenly with the fenders. It's the kind of detail that you don't notice immediately but gives the whole truck a very high-quality look that stands up to scrutiny. Everything is steel, too, including the running boards (which offer Ford step plates), and the Ford metal looks straight as an arrow when you look down the sides. Most of the original chrome and stainless trim was left in place, including the grille and headlight surrounds, beautiful Ford F-100 emblems on the sides of the hood, and the bright chrome pumpers found fore and aft that provided great contrast against the red finish. Cool-looking Ford taillights are highlighted with blue-dots and company script on the lenses, as was the style with original pickups from the era, while the bed is lined with beautifully finished oak boards and stainless steel rub strips that look so nice you'll hesitate before you haul anything dirty away from Home Depot.

The Ford's utilitarian interior got a huge makeover, anchored by a set of bucket seats that were cut down and wrapped in supple beige leather that's all-day comfortable. Accentuated by subtle red stitching and supported by a custom center console, all pretext of working for a living has been wiped out, creating a luxury-oriented cockpit that's a pleasure to visit. The door panels were upholstered to match the seats, as was the back of the cab, although the headliner was wrapped in black to mirror the look of the top of the dash. A tilt steering column with a later-model GM steering wheel makes it easy to get comfortable, a tall Lokar shifter juts out from the floorboard and falls easy to hand, and there's a full set of handsome white-faced Stewart Warner gauges inside a custom chrome bezel in the dash. Note how beautifully fitted the headliner is, the custom door panels with integrated chrome handles, and the neatly tailored black carpets with matching floor mats, none of which was inexpensive. Vintage Air A/C was installed under the dash and is so cleanly done that it almost looks like it was born there, leaving the expanse of the dashboard uncut. There's also an older AM/FM/Cassette radio, but we're guessing you won't use it simply because the engine's note through the dual exhaust is so much better.

A familiar 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 lives under the hood – following the old adage that if you want to make a Ford go fast you put a Chevy motor in it - and with all that added horsepower and torque on tap, it's a lot of fun to drive. The small block motor is dressed up with brightly finned valve covers and a big chrome air cleaner, and you'll note that extreme attention was paid to the underhood areas, so the inner fenders and firewall are beautifully finished. A 4-barrel carburetor on a polished intake manifold makes plenty of power and a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories makes service easy. The big radiator is cooled by a massive fan and as I mentioned, the long-tube headers feed a custom exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers that exits just under the rear bumper. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and Ford 8-inch rear end are reliable pieces of the puzzle and handling is greatly improved with the Mustang II front suspension with power rack-and-pinion steering and tubular upper and lower control arms up front, and newer shocks all around. Power steering and power disc brakes improve the ride experience and the truck sits exactly right on those shiny Billet Specialties wheels and fat 235/60/16 front and 255/60/17 rear radials.

Beautifully built, expertly finished, and nicely sorted, this is a truck that will attract a lot of attention and still put a big smile on the driver's face. Call today!
