1953 Ford Anniversary 1/2 ton pickup Special 50th year Edition
Here is my restored 1953 Ford 1/2 ton pickup 50 year Anniversary edition with V8 Flathead engine, 3 speed automatic "Ford-O-Matic" automatic transmission, AM Radio, and heater. This was the last year for the flathead engine and the first year they put an automatic in a pickup. It has been updated to the rebuilt Mercury engine with .125 overbore including new pistons (making it 276 cubic inches), new piston rings, reground Mercury 8CM camshaft and lifters, NOS main and rod bearings (.010/.010), refurbished rods, dual new water pumps, resurfaced heads, new belts & hoses, etc. Painted the correct Mercury color for 1953 pickup. It has a spare tire in the original holder under the bed.
This is a complete frame off restoration. Including... New dual exhaust, all new brakes, new master cylinder, new brake cylinders, new brake hoses, new brake lines, new brake shoes, new bushings, new seals, new paint, new seat cover, new door panels, new floor mat, new kick panels, new front hood emblem, new steering wheel, new headliner, new glove box, new Universal Joints, new chrome head bolt covers, new gas charged shocks. The bed floor is walnut. Refurbished heater, rebuilt carburetor, new driver door latch and window, new 6 volt battery, 4 new Goodyear whitewall tires. Lots of new things, some I forget.
This is a daily driver with the gauges, lights, turn signals, and horn all working. The transmission works perfectly, the engine works perfectly, it is a very good driver, steers and handles great. The AM radio does not work, and there are wiper marks in the windshield, other than that, there are no problems or issues.
This truck has been fully refurbished to be as original with the upgrade to period correct 276cid Mercury engine for more power! The truck has less than 2000 miles since complete rebuild. It is the 50 year Anniversary Edition (1903-1953) with the original trim around the drip rail, the Anniversary horn button, anniversary grill chrome, and optional fender skirts & sport mirrors. A special edition truck, new and modern for 1953, featuring Ford-O-Matic easy to drive automatic transmission and heater. So easy to drive anyone is able to operate this beauty!
