The truck you've always wanted to build is ready to hit the road - or trail - right now. This 1953 Ford F-250 takes the classic 2nd gen F-series body and mounts it on a more modern 4x4 frame. And with the body, interior, and V8 all upgraded, too, it's a unique and impressive custom pickup.
This truck knows how to instantly announce it's something different. The modern application of red paint has an eye-catching level of gloss. It lets the light roll evenly across this truck, and so you may not first recognize how custom this really is. After all, the age difference between the classic cab and the FlareSide bed is about 40 years. And the polished alloys are modern 18-inch units with an ultra-duty 8-lug setup. It makes for the kind of thoughtful total style that looks thoughtful on its own, and we just bet you also are wondering what a vintage boat would look like hooked up to this pickup. And as you look through all the other upgrades, you'll discover it's quite a useful 4x4, too.
Inside, you can see the new and vintage worlds blending seamlessly to create a comfy custom. The bench seat has been upgraded to the same era as the bed, and that's when Ford was making pickup plush with velour upholstery, good bolstering, and a fold-down center armrest for bucket like-comfort. There are even provisions for modern R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) This still retains the smooth metal surfaces and airy atmosphere that makes a classic truck great. But the upgraded steering wheel and a full set of retro-style VDO gauges let you know this is an upgraded driver.
The engine bay shows off more of the truck's thoughtful upgrades. After all, this was born when Ford was still in its flathead V8 era. That's a legendary setup, but when you have a real 4x4, the mighty 302 cubic-inch small block is a welcomed addition. It's a strong-running powerhouse that inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor, and shorty headers exhale with added power. And that extra power from this V8 will be appreciated because you can really use this truck for everything from work to play. This versatility starts with the chassis from a younger and robust 1990s-era F-250. That means stout 4x4 components that will always be easy to source. It also means nice conveniences like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
This is the custom vintage 4x4 that will turn heads everywhere from the hardware store to the boat ramp. So when something this unique is also this affordable, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
