Classic Auto Mall
6180 Morgantown Road
1954 Ford F100 Pickup
In 1925 the Ford Motor Company introduced the first "pickup" based on the Model T Runabout. Ford offered the rear "pickup box" separately at their dealer parts department for $25.00. The box was then bolted onto the back of the vehicle as an accessory. Since the box was "picked up" at the parts department by the customer, the term "pickup" took hold for this style of vehicle. Later the box was installed at the factory and evolved into today's pickup trucks.
For consignment, a totally restored Ford F-100 from an estate where it was well cared for and barely driven. Lots of attention to detail has been paid to this truck, and this final product shows it. These trucks seem to be very popular at Classic Auto Mall lately, so it is suggested you show up sooner rather than later for your chance to have it permanently in your collection.
Meadow Green was the original build paint, and this truck now has a new coating of it, and it displays beautifully. Just a few faults within the field of green in the form of some underlying rust bubbling. With its "phat" white painted metal grille complete with a big V8 badge in the center, and a single headlight on either side, this is iconic design for 50's Ford trucks. A bulbous hood, with some brite work on either side, makes its way back to a single pane windshield and rounded cab area. Perfect black painted steel running boards connect the front and rear rounded fenders. Nice thin black wall tires adorn each corner and are capped by FORD stamped chrome moons. The tailgate works flawlessly, and a beautiful oak lined bed makes its way from the tailgate to the cab. Bumpers are painted black and offer up an air of simplicity. Overall paint is beautifully applied.
Swing open the steel paneled Meadow Green utilitarian doors, and you are immediately welcomed by a green vinyl leather textured bench seat. As immaculate as it gets, the metal dash, also in Meadow Green, houses various pristine white gauges, essential knobs and a single extra gauge hanging below. The fully restored steering wheel and column fronts the dash. The floors are covered in perfectly preserved rubber and all glass is near perfection. Above is a gray molded plastic headliner.
A lift of the hood and you are gazing into a wonderfully restored engine bay, which includes a fully rebuilt Ford Power King 239ci V8 engine, in the correct color I might add. It is fed by a rebuilt 2-barrel carburetor. Bolted on the back is a 3-speed manual transmission which throws power to a 3.92 rear axle. Just beautifully finished with all hoses and bolt ons, in mint condition.
No rust seen here either, just straight structurally sound framing and body hangers. Barely even any road dirt here and the underside off the bed shows like new. Leaf spring suspension and drum brakes are all around this truck.
Stepping inside it starts right up and runs swimmingly. All functions were working perfectly, and it is a great driver easy to operate.
For an individual who just enjoys a nostalgic truck cruise in a truly original looking and correct truck, this could be it. For the collector who wants to show a beautiful example of the F-100, this is it. For the business who may want to use it as a promotional piece, and attract a lot of eyeballs, this could be it. Make your way here for a test drive as this could be it!
