Description for Ford Other Pickups 1949

A fully-built performance restomod with a 461ci big block and dual quads is a great headline for this 1949 Ford F-1. But more than just the power to go, this truck has the slick paint and custom A/C interior to make sure it's ready to show, too. The Ford F-1 is arguably the best-looking post-war truck. While they all have a basic industrial attractiveness, this example is a cut-above because of its sleekness. It starts with a modern... Viper Blue with pearl clearcoat that instantly signals to the world this a custom machine. Plus, there are other great subtle upgrades like the color-matched sport mirrors and LED taillights. Even with modern flair, a proper classic American needs terrific brightwork. So you get a mirror-like bumper and grille leading the way. It makes for a nice bright setup continued on everything from the classic slats in the hood, to the stylishly modern 18-inch Enkei wheels. Even the upgrade to the diamond plate bed walls and locking box adds to the brightwork while also adding utility. And as you look over it all, you'll love the quality details â€" it's in everything from the way the doors close with authority to the bright lumber in the real wood truck bed. Inside is a nice blend of comfort and serious performance. The exterior blue returns and now it's mixed with a tasteful tan. You'll love this leather on everything from the steering wheel to the door panels â€" and you'll especially love it on the seats. This is an upgrade to later model buckets. They are plush, comfortable, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. Plus, there are other great modern upgrades like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But as you look at the full dolphin gauge package in the bright panel and spot the large Super Pro tach, you're going to get the feeling this is more than just a coddler. If it doesn't give you the tingle of performance now, your blood will certainly get pumping when you twist the key and hear this roar. Grab your sunglasses before looking under the hood, because we dare you to find another component that can be polished. Once you look beyond the award-worthy shine, you're going to see the kind of power that can tear up a concours lawn. That's a big block V8 stuffed into the engine bay. While 454 cubic-inches is enough for most folks, this has been bored to 461ci total. And the upgrades don't stop there. This breathes in deeply with a dual set of Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. It exhales with authority as headers feed the X-pipe Flowmaster dual exhaust. GM's TH400 three-speed automatic was made stout enough to handle all this power, and it feeds a strong 12-bolt rear end with Positraction and versatile 3.55 gears. As you look at the undercarriage photos, don't forget to spot the Fatman A-arm front suspension upgrade and all the details that are painted to match the exterior. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires, and you've got a great package to easily take to car shows near and far. A slick look with the serious performance to back it up. This is a well-presented custom classic that you don't want to let slip away, so call today!
