Interestingly enough, this isn't a typical Ford F1 pickup, though it's Been Modernized. It's actually a Canadian-spec model built in a Canadian factory, one of 16 F-Series factories back in the late 1940s. What's more, Ford's Canadian branch used a different nomenclature for the pickups back then. This would-be F1 is actually a F47.
This 1949 Ford F47 Canadian Built might be a rare bird, but it carries all the same features and looks as its U.S.-spec F1 counterparts. Its classic Ford look, V-8, and step-side bed solidify this as a timeless piece of automotive history. This example seems extremely well restored and cared for. Its detailed Custom Built Ford appears to have been lovingly done to showcase Ford F47 would look like. Whoever wins this bid will take home a finely Custom F1 pickup with a unique past.
It might not look too luxurious these days, but in 1949, the F47's cab was high livin'. In fact, Ford called it the "Million Dollar Cab" thanks to its passenger-focused accoutrements. The three-person bench seat offered more room than other half-ton pickups thanks to the wider cab design.
