1952 Ford Other Pickups Restomod

There's not much chance that anyone is going to pull up to a cruise night or local gathering behind the wheel of a vintage pickup anything like this 1952 Ford F-1 Restomod. A singular exterior shade, along with some inspired modifications, give it a distinctive, precisely crafted appearance you won't want to look away from, and it's outfitted with some modern upgrades to provide an outstanding experience behind the wheel. Even taking into consideration that customized... pickups from its era tend to attract their fair share of attention, this Ford is a standout. Its gray metallic paint - a sharp yet understated shade to begin with - is in top form and sits underneath a strong clearcoat. Its relatively short bed area gives it a stout, rugged appearance, while the contrasting white front grille gives the impression that this truck could likely devour any vehicle that might venture in front of it. The attention to detail here is evident - the body is well-aligned from all angles, the front and back bumpers are unblemished and level, and the gaps surrounding the doors and hood are nice and consistent. Fresh rubber surrounds the front and back windshields and the collection of chrome on board is very clean. Its stance is great - low enough to confer some definite aftermarket attention but not drastic enough to present difficulties while driving in everyday conditions. Some well-chosen add-ons equip the interior with modern overall functionality to accompany its skillfully customized vintage appearance. The bench seat is covered with rich-looking gray vinyl and has been constructed in a way to allow for both its driver and passenger sides to recline or lean forward independently, with a tuck and roll surface to match the door panels on each side. The remote keyless entry is definitely a convenient feature, an aftermarket Sparco wheel sits on a tilting column and the added power windows co-exist with original-looking crank handles for a more authentic appearance. The dash area has been outfitted with a set of white-faced Classic Instruments gauges and an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo is on board to tend to your audio needs. The air conditioning blows cold inside this modded classic - there won't be any issues getting comfortable while on the road. This eye-catching vintage truck has been configured for plenty of dependable power via the circa mid-'90s 5.0 liter high output V8 residing under its hood. Firing right up at the push of a button - literally, as a push button start switch has also been installed - the engine runs smoothly and pulls with conviction, teaming with a 3-speed automatic C6 transmission that shifts with precision. The powerplant sits in a neatly ordered engine compartment - this was a very seamless installation, so there are minimal wires within view and everything inside is precisely routed. The aluminum radiator up front helps keep operating temperatures in check, while the added Mustang II front end brings with it a whole host of benefits that make a profound difference in the driving experience this F-1 offers, including power rack and pinion steering for precise, easy handling, front power disc brakes and coilovers for a smooth, refined ride. Carrying just the right amount of offset to add even more customized magic is this Ford's set of 15" custom wheels. With their chrome center caps situated on deep rims and encircled by paint matching the rest of the exterior, they really add a great finishing touch. Having logged just a touch over 11,000 miles since its build, this Ford F-1 Restomod looks and runs great and comes with a collection of receipts documenting the work that's gone into getting it that way.
