1948 Ford Other Pickups F-2

Not only are you looking at the ever first F-Series pickup, but it's also the heavier duty model. Yes, this 1948 Ford F-2 was the vehicle that helped launch a legend. That's why this minty green restored pickup deserves a prime spot in your garage.The legendary style of the first-year, first-generation F-Series is already enough to draw plenty of attention, and it really looks terrific dressed in a very period-appropriate Adriatic Green that was applied during restoration. But, this iconic appearance also knows how to stand out in a crowd of pickups because the professional-grade F-2 model has a large bed than its F-1 sibling. But just like its little brother, this one enough brightwork to remind you that even trucks cared about style. You see it in the stainless strips running along the sides of the hood, framing the vents, on the factory hubcaps, and the stacked grille that still echoes in today's F-150. But your favorite feature might not even be bright. The larger truck bed is filled with real oak boards that have a deep, dark glossy stain.Just like the exterior, the interior is all about retaining the original spirit. But function also can come with plenty of style. For example, the durable bench seat seems to take the same tone as the real wood in the truck bed. Plus, the minty green paint and cream accents of the exterior return on the door panels and dash. This Ford's blue-collar roots are immediately known when you grab three-spoke wheel and feel the grippy groves that have put America to work for decades. There is no radio, but it will hardly be missed because this pickup feels so authentic that it will make you want to whistle a Big Band tune on every trip.When you take a look at the engine bay, we know you're going to marvel at the details like the decals on the oil bath air cleaner. But more than just look nice, this is Ford's trusty flathead V8 that's still ready to get to work. The 239 cubic-inch engine was the larger of the two motors offered in '48, and that extra wallop of power is appreciated in the higher rated F-2 model. Plus, the change to an alternator over a generator is a desirable modern upgrade to keep you reliably going down the road. You'll love the way the three-speed manual transmission keeps you in full control, and the single exhaust and bias-ply tires will make every Sunday drive feel like rolling history.Complete with owner's manual, this is a special pickup that has been given the respect it deserves. You know how cool it would be to be the one with the first-year F-series in rarer F-2 form. So this is true vintage truck envy, and if you hurry, you get to make everyone else jealous. Call now!!
