This pretty 1951 F1 belongs Ken Kiser (kkiserneto.com) and it the result of a seven year restoration.
I bought the old 51 for 500.00 and it was in pretty bad
shape. It is put back to original with complete overhaul on Flathead V-8
engine has 3 speed trans on the column which with the rear end a low
speed rear end which I would like to change to a higher speed ...think
the truck was originally a farm truck...anyway I disassembled it all
the way down to the frame...had the frame sandblasted primed and
repainted... then started going back together put new brakes, master
cylinder, shocks, new tires and new motormounts. I got the motor installed
then started on the cab which took quite a bit of work, lots of sanding and
pit filling, lost count on how many coats of paint I put on it. I got it all
finished and started on the front end replaced all the lights, parking
light assys, and rechrome the hood ornament. I cleaned up and repainted
inside the Cab. I installed a new wiring harness, rechromed
the dash trim, put new headliner in, new domelight. I used the same rearveiw
mirror, new floormat and repainted the heater. I got it all finished and
started working on the bed. I made the slats out of popular wood I think
originally had pine but the popular with stain and clear coat sure turned
out pretty. I put new metal strips and painted them black...
as for the glass..I am the owner of a glass shop and I cut all my glass and
kept it original as possible and used Clear Laminated glass all the way
