This 1952 Ford F-1 is pure vintage charm. That means it has the full classic truck and feel, right down to its flathead V8 power. So while you'll see nice investments throughout, nothing gets in the way of that nostalgic vibe that makes this awesome.
The red paint makes the exact right first impression. After all, it's same color as a country barn. Of course, no shed ever had a gloss like this. It's the kind of that shows off the Ford's curves, but nothing is too nice to make this look like an overly done truck. So your first impression almost feels like it turned back the clock to 1952, and this one was still in its first year on the farm. That freshness is even felt in the details with well-aligned panels, good rubber gaskets, and clean glass. There's a nice brightwork presentation with chrome bumpers, complete badging, nice hood trim, and two-piece wheel covers. But really, the showiest part of this pickup might just be the fresh glossy lumber in the truck bed.
The interior keeps the simple and classic feeling going. You get a tall airy cab, long bench seat, and a large steering wheel that lets you feel the same kind of grip as generations that have come before you. There are upgraded details, like crisp/clean gauges and carpeting, but nothing feels out of place in this classic. In fact, you'll really love showing off some of the best vintage features of the day, like the working heater and AM radio.
Under the hood is proper flathead V8 power. The 239 cubic-inch motor is an era-correct block that has authentic details, like the big air grabber on top. But if you dig a little deeper, you can also see this was given the right investments to be a fine driver for modern times, too. The V8 looks like it has been properly rebuilt and includes everything from Edelbrock heads to a 12-volt full system upgrade. It makes for a strong-running motor. And the three-speed manual transmission has a crisp shifting action on the column to give you proper control. The undercarriage photos not only show you how well-done this truck is over every inch, but also the fresh look means the right components to give you confidence on the road.
This is an awesomely vintage package that was built for you to truly enjoy. Don't let this real classic truck slip away, call today!
