1952 Ford F1 Half Ton Pickup
For nearly a hundred years the Ford brand has been synonymous with truck. A Ford pickup is known for its reliability, durability and enduring style. This 1952 Ford pickup is now approaching 70 years on the road, and it still keeps going strong. Here is a workhorse that served as a ranch truck in Texas for most of its days, then the rust free body was given a fresh repaint, the cabin was reupholstered and the engine was overhauled. Set out to pasture to enjoy its remaining years in gentle service, the truck is now in Las Vegas where it is driven around the valley on occasion, seldom used to haul cargo. The Ford starts easily and runs great with no mechanical issues, and no worries.
This little hauler has shiny Obsidian Black paint and the bed is planked with oak. The inner surfaces of the cargo box are finished with a dent and scratch resistant coating, so it can still be used for heavy lifting, if necessary. It is powered by the dependable and economical Ford 215 CID in-line 6 cylinder OHV engine that provides plenty of horsepower and torque for almost any job. The manual 3 speed transmission shifts easily and the clutch is in excellent condition. This truck does not have modern convenience features like air conditioning, power steering or power brakes. Trucks of the early 1950s were not equipped with these extra features. The glass, rubber, and tires are all in excellent condition. The chrome bumpers and trim sparkle like diamonds.
After 7 decades, the original AM radio doesn’t work, and the actual mileage isn’t known because the speedometer cable needs to be replaced. That’s all. There are no significant problems. Steering at low speeds requires some muscles, but the drum brakes stop the pickup surprisingly well.
This is a ride that can be anything you want it to be. Just as it is, it will go on for tens of thousands of miles as a working truck, or it could be the platform for a complete makeover with a modern drivetrain and luxury appointments. The important thing is that it is a very affordable, solid vehicle. Pound for pound, this F1 pickup costs less than the price of hamburger. That’s a juicy deal! Without breaking your budget, here’s a vintage Ford pickup you will enjoy, no matter how you plan to use it.
Serious buyers are invited to make an appointment to see and drive this truck. It won’t disappoint anyone who knows the value of these F1 pickups. The Nevada title is clear, of course, and it could be driven home – wherever home is in America - with confidence.
