1949 Ford Other Pickups RestomodThis 1949 Ford F-1 Restomod is an awesome kind of custom pickup that takes Ford's classic commanding appearance, and then adds in solid V8 power, an overdrive transmission, a comfy A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, a terrific paint theme, and much more. With a quality build like this, you won't want to miss out.
The Ford F-1 has an iconic style, but this one also instantly announces it's something quite unique. It got a smoother style with the one-piece steel front end, flush-fitting Kindigit spoon door handles, and a custom rear roll paint with integrated taillights. There's even a flush-fitting hard tonneau cover that power opens from a switch on the dash. And the sleekest part of this truck may just be the paint. The cream and minty green strike the right balance of a classic two-tone combo but with a modern shine. There's even a distinct orange pinstripe to give it a clean dividing line. And we love how the look of sporty and vintage come together on the wheels. You have wide performance tires and a lowered stance, but the cream steel wheels with classic-style two-piece trim keep its eye on history.
The interior continues the feelings of vintage and upgraded, including plenty of premium added into the mix. It starts with the seats that carry the exterior's two-tone, and there's even orange piping. The carpeting, door panels, dash, and headliner all harmonize with the cream for a thoughtful and uniform total presentation. Items like the door panels and dash show off the truck's vintage flair, but there's also well-integrated features great for modern times. It includes an AM/FM stereo w/CD changer, center armrest, power steering, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. The steering wheel has a classic banjo style with the Ford V8 logo in the middle. But it's a modern sports unit mounted on a polished tilt column. This gives you a clear view to the full Dolphin gauge package.
The engine bay continues this truck's well-coordinated attitude. You have cream inner walls and on the engine, and there's a green air grabber in the center. And there are cool details like the orange pinstriping and green accenting on the valve covers. The investment in this powerhouse is more than just cosmetic. You have Ford's famous 5.0-liter V8, and there was $4k invested in 2015 to rebuild this motor. There are the right supporting components, too, like Ford racing plug wires, steel braided lines, a billet serpentine belt system, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. It inhales deeply with a Weber four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales out of a side-exit dual exhaust that was updated in 2018. As you look underneath, you'll spot a clean chassis, and upgrades like the tubular A-arm independent front suspension. And there are more great driver upgrades, like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, Ford Explorer rear end, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, a large instruction book, service manuals, and restoration photos. This is the iconic Ford built for added admiration, comfort, and all-around driving. It's a total package pickup that you can't resist. Call today!!!
