What is it about classic pickup trucks that makes them so appealing? Is it their unpretentious styling, their rugged and reliable powertrains, or simply their ability to go where cars can’t go, to do what cars can’t do? Exemplifying all of these qualities is this 1949 Ford F1—a truck as American as apple pie.
Although there are many old trucks available today that try to “manufacture” a similar look, this pickup is original with patina that is 100% authentic. Powered by a 239 CID flathead V-8 and a 3-speed manual transmission, this pickup runs like a top. It benefits from the following mechanical updates:
12-volt electrical system (except for 6-volt gauges that operate with a reducer)
New leaf springs
New water pumps
The most recent owners have owned and enjoyed this pickup for the last seven years. Although the clean Ohio title reflects its 74,000 miles as actual, total mileage is unknown.
If a 100% authentic pickup is what you desire, look no further than this attention-grabbing 1949 F1!
