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 F-1—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.  Don’t be fooled by its unrestored exterior, however—this truck has been completely gone through mechanically.  Powered by a 239 CID flathead V-8 and a 3-speed manual transmission, the engine was professionally rebuilt less than 100 miles ago and is ready to go.  Other mechanical updates include the following:

  • Conversion from 6-volt to 12-volt
