Vehicle Story

This 1948 Ford F1 is a first-model-year F-Series pickup that was the subject of a custom build featuring a Cragar supercharged 350ci V8 paired with a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic, Porsche Guard's Red paint, and an interior with contrasting upholstery. Hardwood planks line the bed, the cabin is air-conditioned, the engine uses an MSD ignition system, and the front end sits on an independent suspension setup with a steering rack as opposed to the factory gearbox. Power is put to the ground through a set of Mickey Thompson tires, and this 1948 Ford F1 is offered on a clear Arizona title in the owner's name.

As the first of what became known as Ford's F-Series pickup line, the F1 was launched in 1948 with a one-piece windshield, a 6 ½-foot stepside bed, and integrated headlamps. This F1 wears a shade of Porsche Guard's Red paint and features color-matched horizontal grille slats. Brightwork includes a chrome front bumper, hood vent trim, a driver sideview mirror, and door handles, as well as side-exit exhaust pipes beneath each color-matched running board. The bed is lined with replacement wood planks and uses stainless-steel hardware, and the tailgate has an embossed Ford logo in the center.

Factory yellow-painted 15” steel wheels with chrome hubcaps are wrapped in Michelin Harmony tires up front and Mickey Thompson ET street tires in the rear. The rack and pinion steering system is new according to the seller.

The cabin is home to a bench seat trimmed in tan upholstery with a matching steering wheel and lap belts. The door panels, dash, and instrument panel are color-matched to the body and wear bits of chrome trim. Black rubber flooring lines the footwells and interior occupants are treated to air conditioning, with vent pods pictured below the instrument panel.

Vehicle vitals are conveyed to the driver through a set of Autometer gauges which include a 120-mph speedometer and smaller dials for oil pressure, coolant temperature, voltage, and fuel level that are housed within a chrome bezel. A 10,000-rpm Sport-Comp Monster tach is attached to the steering column, and a boost gauge is mounted beneath the center of the dash.

The 350ci V8 has been upgraded with a Cragar supercharger, an MSD ignition system, an aluminum radiator, and additional Edelbrock performance parts. Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic 350 transmission.

@Wolfeman – is the truck gear for freeway driving without running the tack up to high also how old is the paint work and sratches dings or rock chips. does it have headers cant tell by photos Thank you for you timely response Wolfeman ...

The gearing for the truck is good for a combination of both street and highway driving. With the 3 speed transmission long trips on the highway could be a little loud. The paint is about 4-5 years old and still looks great with some minor scratches from being wiped down. There are a few minor rock chips from being driven. It does have headers that offer a great exhaust note from the side exit exhaust.

With all the aftermarket speed upgrades, wonder why no disc brakes to stop her.? Could have been done when that rack was added and still retain the stock steel wheels. Nevertheless, good looking truck. No need to reply.
