Old School 1951 Ford F1 Pickup Built to Agitate the Gravel

1951 Ford F1

Big, bad daddy-o is rocking a V8 engine and Demon carburetor that will rule the road. 

If you’ve always wanted to own a classic pickup, we’ve found a beauty. This 1951 Ford F1 is currently on the auction block at the 2019 Spring Carlisle Auction, running April 25 to April 26. Chopped, lowered, and menacing, this badass has been beautifully restored to turn heads and make pulses quicken.

In burgundy and black, the F1 is an exceptionally clean ride. The interior has burgundy with light grey seating. The dash is spotless and boasts period-correct gauges.

The back is pure Ford. Taking styling cues from hot rods, it is as sexy and shapely as a pin-up girl.

The truck rides low, thanks to the 3 inch chopped top and lowered suspension. It has 20 inch Berde wheels. It rides as smooth as it looks.

The metalwork running board side steps are an especially cool detail we love. It looks perfect alongside the chrome details. And the blue piping is an unexpected touch that gives it more classic ’50s character.

The truck was built for performance, not just looks. Modifications include a 302 c.i. V8 engine, a Demon blow through carburetor on 4 barrel intake, gear driven timing, and an AOD automatic transmission.

Also custom built is the fiberglass tonneau cover.
