800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1953 Ford F-100 was given a comprehensive restoration to create a sleek black period-correct classic. There is a clean and correct look everywhere from the undercarriage to the clean and correct decals in the engine bay. So it's the pickup that really gives that nostalgic feeling from every angle... but don't forget to sport the worthwhile upgrades.
This one instantly shows off the outstanding look of a cherished classic. You could get black from Ford in '53, but even the factory never made it as glossy as this. The deep luster loves to really show off those classic Ford fenders and unmistakable vintage pickup silhouette. When you invest this much in a classic, you also get the details right. That means Ford family crest step plates, two-piece wheel covers, bright whitewalls, and plenty of real lumber in the truck bed. Plus, that side-mounted full size spare is always an attention-getter. There are even the nice little extra like the side window overhangs and Ford logo exhaust tip.
The doors open and close with the level of authority that let you feel this is a detail-oriented restoration. The black interior has a nice classic look everywhere from the rubber floor mat to the glossy paint on the dash. The red bench seat gives you a cool splash of color and it coordinates with the design of the steering wheel center cap. You're really going to want to pay attention to that. 1953 was the Ford Motor Company's 50th anniversary, and all Ford trucks this year got a special cap to commemorate this. So, to still have it present is another reminder of the detail level of this pickup. And while this is a terrific classic, it's also meant to be enjoyed in modern times. So that's why you have upgrades like seatbelts and a proper heat/defrost system. They even added an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. Oh yes, this 1950s machine is ready to get the driving playlist off your smartphone!
When you open up the hood, your attention is immediately drawn to the bold and long green block at the center of this dark engine bay. The 215 cubic-inch inline six is a classic Mileage Maker, and you know that because the vintage decal tells you. It really has a time capsule look, right down to the air cleaner, generator, and Holley glass bowl carburetor. But a vintage truck like this still wants to be a strong runner. That's why you have well-integrated useful upgrades like newer hoses, newer wires, and an aluminum radiator. It's all about keeping you in contact with the classic feeling in a restored/trustworthy package. So you still take full control of the motor with a classic column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, and the feeling going down the road is pure nostalgia.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a very well done original style Ford that also has the right well-integrated upgrades. A total package like this won't stay available for long. Call today!!!!
