1952 Ford F-100 F-1

Rust free California truck and always garaged. This is a great weekend cruiser that starts up on the first try every single time. I’ve been through the motor, rebuilt the transmission, brake system, and upgraded electrical system to 12-volt.Runs great and is lots of fun to drive. This is an honest, solid, high quality driver. It is not a show truck, but with a view touches could knock out the competition at your local show. The truck is mostly original. The original 3-speed transmission was replaced with a 4-speed before I bought it. Spur gear so you need todouble clutch. Sounds like a chore, but it really adds to the fun of driving a classic truck like this one. I replaced the oak wood in the bed, added a new vinyl seat, and new wheels and tires. It has 3.92 gear ratio with a top speed of about 55-60 mph.

I bought this truck in 2012 and have gone through everything and fixed or replaced as needed (see list below). It was a solid truck when I got it, but needed a lot of things done. Since then, I have invested over $14,000 (with receipts). There are a few things still needed to completely finish this beautiful high quality driver. This is a great truck that you can jump into immediately and enjoy while you finish up a few odds and ends to kick it up a notch. I’ve had great fun cruising around town on the weekends and never had any issues.

Thegauges work, but need voltage reducers added (which I will include) and I have a replacement speedo that is as nice as the one in the truck. Original speedo won't spin. The truck was painted when I got it and was done about 10 years ago and still looks good. While the paint is holding up well and is still nice and shiny, there are a few small spots with paint bubbles and imperfections. The outside of the rear stake pocket on the driver side needs to be repaired (see pic). The inside of the bed is not perfect and has some dings, but still looks good. There is a dent on the inside of the passenger door panel and a small hole (will add pics of these soon). There are no cracks in the glass, but just the vent windows are original and could be replaced.

If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call – Dan (323) 251-8311.
