Just a neat old pickup? Guess again! Someone pulled out all the stops on this 1952 Ford F100, giving it a traditional look with plenty of vintage horsepower compliments of a stroked 59C flathead, triple carbs and a set of gorgeous Offy heads, plus a Lincoln transmission. If you appreciate performance the way our grandfathers used to do it, youll love this pickup! At first glance, this handsome pickup has just the right vintage look to be charming. You dont expect it to be fast, not with looks like that, but it will bring a smile to everyones face when they see it ambling down the road. The freshened Ford face would become one of the most popular vehicles in history, and despite $10,000 worth of bodywork, this one retains its commercial good looks with painted trim, simple black fenders, and subtle Meadow Green paint. Its quite straight, suggesting that this one was tasked with light-duty work all its life, and when it was freshened someone took their time to get it right. The fenders glisten with rich black paint, the hood and doors fit quite nicely, and the bed has been filled with fresh wood planks with a dramatic grain structure. Not over-done, but just right to catch people asleep at the wheel when you crack the throttle and open up the triple deuces under the hood! Theres not much inside that gives it away, either. Just a simple pleated black bench seat, rubber floor mat and a big black rubber steering wheel. The gauges appear to be original, fitted into the painted dash that matches the bodywork and offers little in the way of comfort. That three-on-the-tree shifter is linked to a Lincoln Continental gear box, which also includes an overdrive, so this little pickup will cruise effortlessly at highway speeds, quite unlike its siblings that run out of breath at 45 MPH. All the wiring is new, and aftermarket turn signals were added, since in 1952 they were still not standard equipment on pickup trucks. The engine is a 59C that was treated to a fresh rotating assembly and now displaces 251 cubic inches for a little boost of torque. Beautiful aluminum Offenhauser heads were powdercoated then had their fins polished to dress up the engine bay, and theres a matching intake with three 2-barrel carbs. Brian Maloof Racing put the whole thing together at a cost of more than $7500, and its way more energetic than the original piece. Thanks to ceramic-coated headers and glasspack-style mufflers, it has a traditional flathead sound and throttle response is instantaneous at almost any speed. Thanks to a 12-volt conversion, it starts easily and a modern alternator keeps things charged up. For safetys sake, the entire brake system was rebuilt including a re-sleeved master cylinder, new wheel cylinders, all new lines, hoses, and cables, plus fresh drums and hardware. The suspension is otherwise stock and in good original condition, with Coker wide whitewall radials were wrapped around the original steel wheels. Beautifully rebuilt by the guys at Route 66 Restorations, this is one vintage pickup that hauls more than tools. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
