Whether you are looking for something that you can line up at your local dragstrip and punch when the light goes green, or just looking for something a bit different then all your buddies have at the local cruise in scene, this real deal 1949 Ford F3 is primed for whatever you are searching for! This 1949 Ford F-3 blends the very best of old-school looks on the outside, extra comfort on the inside, and a powerful V8 upgrade under the hood.

The post war Fords are arguably the best-looking of the early classic pick up trucks. While they all have a basic industrial attractiveness, this example is definitely a cut-above because of its clean looks, great color and custom touches. At first glance you'll think it's a gorgeous purple, but if you look closely you'll see highlights of blue, the paint is actually called Concord Blue. In person though, it definitely looks more of a purple color. The cab and bed are the original Henry Ford steel, but the fenders and running boards were replaced with a fiberglass product to help accommodate the massive rear tires and new mustang front sub frame.

Inside the engine bay you'll find a 400 cubic inch V8 that has been bored to a 406ci V8. The engine features a Accel Distributor, Holley 4-bbl carburetor, chrome pulleys, High Rise intake, Edelbrock Performer RPM Aluminium heads, and vintage air. The engine has roughly 8,000 car show miles on it, and has never been raced at the strip. Although, with the build of the engine and the size of those 33x21.5 rear Mickey Thompsons, we'd love to see what it would do! Mated to the engine is a 4L60 4-speed automatic transmission with a 2000RPM stall converter that sends power to a 10-bolt rear end.

The gorgeous blue/purple is accented by a custom leather bucket seat interior that features a custom console, VDO gauges, power windows, Hurst reverse lockout ratchet shifter, and a AM/FM/CD Player with excellent speakers. Everything works the way it should inside the interior, and its a fun place to log miles from!

Don't miss out on this great opportunity to own this classic pickup! The F3 is being sold with a complete photo book documenting the build of the truck, a North Carolina reconstructed title with a state issued NCS VIN (Pretty common on a street rod of this style build.)
