While certain styles come and go over the years, differences in opinion are always going to exist in the world of trucks. Some people prefer to make a statement with big trucks, loud paint jobs and huge tires. Others not so much…

If you like to make people look twice with understated colors and mods that don’t necessarily beg for attention, this truck is for you! This 1952 F-1 sits so low to the ground, that you might have to look three times before you fully understand what it’s all about. With a slick grey paint job and simple black painted steel wheels, you might just dismiss it as another stock 50’s Ford, but in reality, it’s a clean retro hot rod that deserves our attention.

Instead of chrome all-around, the trim on this ’52 has received the same dull black finish as the wheels. Otherwise, it looks pretty original on the outside, though underneath is a different story, however. It even has a Mustang II front suspension that helps get low to the ground.

The original Flathead V8 still sits under that iconic big hood, but an electric fan helps keep it cool and reliable. The brakes are all new and upgraded, along with a full dual-exhaust, electronic gauges, billet steering wheel, and all-new upholstery inside the cabin.

With a mere 800 miles on the clock since it was restored, this ’52 is ready to be driven and enjoyed. If you’re the type of person who likes to slide onto the scene without attracting too much attention at first, this is the perfect ride for you.
