Beautifully built and loaded with upgrades, this 1950 Ford F-1 pickup is one of the very best vintage haulers we've featured and the list of modifications and upgrades would take up twice the space we have here. This is a very impressive truck!

The color is called Amethyst, and it's just gorgeous in person. The flames are expertly applied and the illusion of the white and purple sections overlapping is fascinating, even up close; clearly an expert was at work here. The bodywork is familiar to Ford fans, but a few subtle tweaks gives it a more up-to-date look, including the shaved bumpers, painted grille, and custom rear roll pan. Surface prep must have taken weeks of work, because the bodywork is straight, smooth, and glossy, with no ripples or waves visible anywhere, and with that high-interest paint, people are definitely going to be looking closely at the workmanship. Tidy panel gaps, particularly on the hood, suggest a lot of money was spent and we like little details like the cool hood vents, a trailer hitch hidden behind the license plate, and a Ford oval down low on the front grille. The bed is nicely finished with custom widened fender housings, plus a locking tool box up front which allows for some storage as well as access to the battery underneath.

The beautifully tailored interior is nicely suited to the paint, with handsome purple tweed wrapped around comfortable bucket seats. Custom door panels and even under-dash panels give it a luxurious and highly finished look, but it doesn't lose the charm of an old pickup. The factory instrument panel has been replaced by a neat billet insert that mirrors the original's shape, but now houses a full array of cool Dakota Digital instruments for monitoring the truck's vitals, plus an analog water temperature gauge underneath. The banjo-style wheel is period perfect and sits on a tilt column, and a powerful A/C system makes this a truck that's ready for a cross-country haul. The controls for both the A/C and the AM/FM/cassette stereo are hidden, so the dash remains clean and uncluttered, and there's a digital music system for entertaining the onlookers.

The Ford bodywork was parked on top of a Chevy S10 pickup frame, so the installation of a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 seems like a natural fit. It's reliable and plenty powerful, and the engine bay is very neatly finished with some dress up pieces and includes an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, long-tube headers, and a big radiator up front to keep things cool. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt rear end, so service is easy and the S10 chassis brings power steering and power front disc brakes, so it's easy to handle. Long-tube headers dump into a custom dual exhaust system with stainless mufflers that sound great, and the stance is just about perfect. Shiny Colorado Custom aluminum wheels offers a traditional look and fat 215/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich rubber.

Professionally built and totally sorted, this F-1 is ready to enjoy. If you're man enough to drive a purple truck, you're going to love the way it handles and all the attention it gets from the ladies. Call today!
