Prior to the war, trucks were very much a customized idea mostly built by carriage companies outside of the manufacturers including suspension, length of frame and more to get these vehicles capable enough for the job at hand. The trucks that did come from the factory from ford were built off the same chassis that their cars were built on which restricted the amount of space to work with as well as the capability. The first-generation ford f-series was introduced in 1948 and was the first post-war truck design that ford had created. This was very unique for the company as they broke off from using their car chassis and opted for a dedicated truck platform. This proved to be a very good move for the company as it went on to be more capable and gave many options to broaden the utilitarian purpose of their vehicle. From the f-1 all the way to their f-8, these trucks came with different engine choices, bed lengths, weight ratings and purposes such as a parcel truck or school bus. The truck came from the dry climate of arizona and remains incredibly solid. The truck does have few bumps and bruises, but it pulls of the nostalgic look very well! It is powered by a 350 v8 paired with 350 auto transmission. According to the owner the engine and transmission have been rebuilt. All the engine accessories were replaced at the time of rebuild such as the alternator, starter, water pump, fuel pump and it was given a new edelbrock 600cfm carburetor. At the time of restoration, the truck was given all new shocks, new brake lines, new wilwood power brake setup, new wheel cylinders, new brake drums and components, new 12 volt "ez wiring" harness and more. The truck was lowered in the front by a 3" drop axle from speedway motors and the rear end was flipped on top of springs and a new balanced driveshaft was installed. The truck has new front and rear windows, gas tank exhaust and more. The truck rides on newer coker white wall tires. This truck runs and handles very well and is a blast to cruise around in. Makes every effort to represent each vehicle accurately and with integrity. We also welcome third party inspections when necessary. Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles are sold as is, no warranty expressed or implied.
