1953 Ford F100
It might have been difficult to persuade the original owners of vintage pickup trucks that their workhorses would someday be sought after collector pieces, however, these classic body lines are a pleasant departure from the overly square vehicles of the modern era and have a fantastic retro look.
This 1953 Ford F100 underwent a lengthy restoration to a worthy candidate. Due to the amount of use these trucks saw and the climates that they were operated in, finding a solid rust-free body to start with is a pretty far-fetched wish. This beauty might have seen a lot of original use prior to restoration, but its rock solid fenders and cab are a testament to its Southern heritage.
The engines fitted to these Ford trucks are known to be some of the most reliable motors that Ford ever built. This totally rebuilt 215 cid straight six purrs like a kitten, and the smooth shifting 3-speed make it a blast to cruise around town. Rebuilt suspension components and nice brakes make this truck a joy to drive. The truck has been restored for just 2 years and shows it. The engine compartment and cab are appropriately detailed and the under carriage is finished in a serviceable mat black finish. Don't miss the hand finished wood bed and all the correct and perfectly operational dash controls.
You don't always have to drive fast to have fun and the character that this beautiful truck exudes will no doubt provide years of enjoyment for its next admirer.
