1949 Ford F-3The simple good things are those things in life which are irreducible; those things which have no half measure, those things which utterly lack pretense in their utility, or which are good by sheer proximity to their truthfulness, and simple by way of their singular, unalterable purpose. These things are the very things we seek when we wish to return to the beginning or when we wish to fulfill the end.
This extremely rare F-3 Ford is not merely of this precise ethic, it epitomizes this sentiment. It is so uncommon that there is virtually no material to reference, no production numbers to quote, or history to extol, and is so painfully simple and so durably built that it could without question be kept in service for many generations of man.
Restored in attractively understated Meadow Green base coat, clear coat with tan interior, this remarkably restored 1949 Ford F-3 1 ton pick-up features: rebuilt original Flathead V8, 4-speed manual transmission, upgraded rear axle, Reese receiver hitch, original radio, sun visor, stainless grill bars, Ford script lights, original split rim wheels with new 17" tires, and more.
This exceptional automobile has been retained in a museum collection since restoration and is without question among the best examples one will ever find of such a rare truck.
Simple good things endure.
