With its bold exterior, comfy interior, and a powerful V8 under the hood, this 1949 Ford F-100 was built to be a great all-around classic. And as you dig into the details, you'll discover this has all the extras you really want for a driver's classic - including an upgraded suspension and four-on-the-floor.
The restoration on this truck was only about 8 years ago, and it has only gone about 1,400 miles since then. So you get a clean look and an impressive style. For example, the red paint has a glossy and vibrant look of a quality application. This combines with the well-fitting panels to show off the smooth curves of the first-gen F-Series. Plus, all the brightwork elements like the iconic five-bar grille, full trim, and chrome bumpers are all complete and radiant. And there's even real wood that's now painted black in the truck bed. It all makes for a quality classic. But you know that this one was also built to be a driver with dual exhaust tips, 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels, and a sporty/powerful stance.
The interior has a tidy and clean feeling that comes from good investment during restoration. The smooth red dash and doors have that vintage steel feel. These are joined by some nice upgrades, like the comfy brown vinyl bench seat and a matching proper headliner. There's even an R134a air conditioning system neatly installed under the dash (it likely needs a recharge to blow cold again.) The big and thin steering wheel gives you a classic grip, and you'll love the feel of the long floor shifter. But when you spot the auxiliary gauge trio and hear the rumble of the exhaust, you know there's something special under the hood.
The red on the exterior of the truck would look just as good on a first-gen Mustang, and the 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood is from that era, too. These small blocks are legendary for being both hardy and powerful. That's especially true when it inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and shorty headers let this exhale freely into the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. And you're in complete control of it all thanks to the full package thanks to the toploader four-speed manual transmission and a stout 9-inch rear. And to make this an all-around solid driver's package, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an upgraded independent front end with tubular control arms.
This is the first-gen F-Series that looks and feels like it ate a pony car. That makes for an awesomely distinct and fun restored pickup. Call today!!!
