The brilliant blue paint immediately draws your attention to this restored and mildly customized 1949 Ford pickup. The interior features complementary blue cloth bucket seats in an otherwise seemingly period-correct cabin in mainly a gray tone with the period dashboard and instruments onboard. The truck has a flathead V8 that looks to have been mechanically upgraded for better reliability, with a modern intake manifold and carburetor, plus the ease and peace of mind of a modern oil-filtering system.
The Ford F-1 displays many attractive features that include a finished wood bed floor with bright securing strips, color-keyed steel wheels with trim rings, wide whitewall tires, dual exterior mirrors, radio, chromed bumpers, running-board step plates branded “Ford” and cabin side-window drip guards. Beautiful styling and the detailing with bright trim on the hood and grille add to the character of this sharp Ford pickup.
