THE FORD F-100

Nowadays an integral part of American popular culture, the Pick Up truck has come to be thought of as the modern-day equivalent of the cowboy's horse. Ford's first completely new post-WW2 pick-up was the F-1 of 1948 that featured modern, up-to-the-minute styling and a cab rubber-mounted to the separate chassis. Its replacement for 1953 was the F-100, a half-ton model that would remain a fixture of Ford's commercial line-up, albeit periodically restyled and updated, for the next few decades. Sleeker and more modern than its predecessor, the F-100 was available in numerous different configurations and with a choice of inline 'six' or V8 engines.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This impressive Ford F-100 Pick Up benefits from a comprehensive restoration with tasteful and appropriate 'Hot Rod' upgrades, performed by a skilled and knowledgeable team of specialists. This original Ford F-100 was sourced and acquired by the consignor - a prominent Virginia-based collector of exceptional motorcars - due to its sound and solid, all-metal bodywork. His restoration shop, Page Customs, has since treated the All-American Ford F-100 to a thorough, nut and bolt restoration, where period-appropriate performance upgrades has been included. The bodywork has been finished in a stunning misty green color, with neatly contrasting cream-colored wheels, also color-coded to the front grill of the truck. A black interior and an under-dash heater was fitted. Out front, a free-rev'ing flathead Ford V8 was installed, topped by Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads. A rare 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive shifts the power, while disk brakes and upgraded suspension ads to the braking and handling characteristics of the Ford Pick Up. The bed is trimmed with beautiful wood, and superb quality craftsmanship is evident everywhere you look. Here is the chance to acquire a stunningly well-presented example of one of America's all-time favorite modes of transportation.
