1951 Ford F1 Pickup GREEN
The first-generation Ford F-Series is a series of pickup trucks and commercial vehicles produced by Ford. Introduced in late 1947, the F-Series was the first post-war truck design from Ford. The first generation of the F-Series would remain in production until 1952. F-Series trucks were assembled at sixteen different Ford factories. Serial numbers indicate the truck model, engine, year, assembly plant, and unit number. The most common model was the F-1 with a 6?½-foot bed.
The first F-Series truck (known as the Ford Bonus-Built) was introduced in late 1947 (went on sale January 16, 1948) as a replacement for the pre-War designed Ford trucks. It had a flat, one-piece windshield and integrated headlamps. It had a wider cab.
The 1951 trucks were restyled with a single bar type grille and a headlight at each end of the grille bar. The grille was painted argent (silver) to complement the chrome headlight bezels. During the model year, the grille was painted ivory and the headlight rings argent. The hood got new side spears and a three slot embellishment at the front. The front bumper was redesigned. A V-8 emblem was used on the upper grille support on corresponding trucks. The pickup bed and tailgate were redesigned. The bed used a hardwood floor instead of the previous all metal floor. The rear window was larger. Door panels were also added.
So here is a '51 Ford F-1: 1/2 ton (4,700 GVWR max.)
It has 101,170 miles; the title shows exempt because of the age of the truck.
Mechanically the truck is sound and very reliable. It has a professionally rebuilt 53 Mercury Flathead (500 miles) Edelbrock dual aluminum intake with rebuilt Holley 94s 3/4 Isky cam. I have receipts for the Flathead alone at over 5k.
It also has new water-pumps, an adjustable Johnson lifter, ceramic coated Red's headers, a rebuilt 3 speed transmission, a rebuilt steering box, a drag link, a tie rod with ends, a Pittman arm, all 4 leaf springs, and rebuilt brakes all around.
That's why it starts, idles, goes through the gears, steers straight, and stops well.
This truck has a fabulous exterior, as can also be seen in the pictures. It has all-original Ford glass. The paint is nice and shiny, which makes this F1 a head turner.
The bed has original metal over wood. Brand new Coker tires and a spare tire make this truck even more reliable and attractive.
The truck has a very nice interior. It has solid door bottoms, cab corners and the rest of the floor. The original seat is without tears. It is nice and clean inside. The dash is complete, and the gauges are all there and operating.
This car is surely a pleasure to own and drive it around!
