10 Coolest Ford Trucks from Spring Carlisle 2019 Auction

By -

1978 Ford F-150 Ranger

From Ford’s earliest trucks to those rolling off the line now, Spring Carlisle auction has it all for Ford fans.

There are quite a few places one can go to find the Ford truck of their dreams: The dealership, eBay, our Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace, maybe your own garage. But sometimes, even those may not have what you need. Thus, we turn to the big auction shindigs thrown by the likes of Barrett-Jackson, Mecum Auctions, and RM Sotheby’s.

Another auction house, Carlisle Auctions of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, is getting ready for its two-day extravaganza during the four-day Spring Carlisle, set for April 24 through 28.

The auction, set for April 25 and 26, kicks off at noon each day, and will have special theme hours on each day, including an all-truck showcase at 5 p.m. April 25, and an all-Sixties showcase at the same time the following day. And after looking through the 500-plus listings for all of the Ford trucks and SUVs up for bid, here’s our 10 favorite selections, in no particular order.

1985 Ford F-150 Lariat

1985 Ford F-150 Lariat

This clean rig in Desert Tan has undergone a full frame off restoration, and it shows.

1985 Ford F-150 Lariat

Running on 351 cubic inch engine, this is a rust-free gem with only 57,000 miles. Simply put, this solid bodied beauty is why we love Ford trucks.

1941 Ford Pickup

1941 Ford Pickup

This badass black pickup has a tan interior and matching custom built tonneau cover.

1941 Ford Pickup

Under the hood is a 383 Stoker motor with 471 Weiand street blower mated to a turbo 350 automatic transmission. This classic is pure attitude.

1930 Ford Model A

1930 Ford Model A

Harley fans will love seeing this parked next to their vintage bikes. The 1930 Model A panel van has a new oak body built by a cabinet maker back in 2014, and the craftsmanship is astounding. Of course, if you’d just rather have a body free of the MoCo’s logo, though, the stickers are removable.

1939 Ford Pickup

1939 Ford Pickup

We found this pickup and our eyes couldn’t help but brighten upon seeing the paint, blue as the blue in the Blue Oval itself.

The tan leather interior makes it all pop, and the combo reminds us of our favorite pair of Levi’s.

1951 Ford Pickup

1951 Ford Pickup

When this 1951 F-Series hot rod rolls up to the drive-in, it’s winga-dinga time. Up front is a 403 V8 from a ’77 Oldsmobile 98, linked to the back tires via a three-speed auto.

The wood bed and tool box is a nice touch for this evil-lookin’ Ford pickup.

1978 Ford Bronco

1978 Ford Bronco

This second-gen 1978 Bronco has a 351 V8 that means business. But the updated leather and cloth interior mixed with the brown and wood trim is versatile and mixes modern with old school perfectly.

Solid and ready to kick some ass, this is the Bronco we cannot get enough of, on or off-road.

1991 Ford F-150 

For reasons we cannot understand, this pristine F-150 Lariat less that 20,000 on the odometer. This is not just a truck, it is a time capsule. The end of the eighth-generation F-150 looks like a dream, and runs beautifully.

1978 Ford F-150 Ranger

1978 Ford F-150 Ranger

This 1978 F-150 Ranger, with a big 5.8-liter V8, is ready to haul whatever loads are placed in the back. The chrome wheels look wonderful wrapped in the 32-inch all-terrain tires, and the orange paint is all Seventies, all the time.

2016 Ford F-350

2016 Ford F-350

If you’ve wanted to get your hands on a show truck, this one has been modded perfectly. And it’s only got 6,000 miles on the odometer. Chromed to the hilt, from the 26-inch polished forged wheels to the big chrome grill.

It has a full Icon lift kit, Rigid light bars, and an impressive list of modifications. This jacked-up pickup is ready to ride high.

2007 Ford F-650

2007 Ford F-650

This 100-gallon fuel tanks only takes diesel, and every drop goes into feeding the 7.2-liter Caterpillar C7 inline-six. In short, this truck is perfect for the oil field. Although it looks like it is ready to rock.

If you are interested in any of these trucks, and we know you are, check out the Carlisle Auctions website for all the details.
