Check out This Delicious 1949 Ford F1 Ice Cream Truck!

By -

It wasn’t all about new cars & trucks at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

There’s something inherently heartwarming about a restored Ford pickup truck. If you think about it, it’s the ultimate feel-good story: a truck that was built to work hard and take abuse, gets a relaxing retirement where it’s appreciated and pampered.

As opposed to restored sports cars, most of which have always lived a privileged life of luxury, it’s specially nostalgic to see trucks which used to live and work in our neighborhoods, be preserved for future generations. This video by JW Burrell quite literally serves up a double dose of nostalgia. It’s a classic 1949 Ford F1 that lived its life as a Good Humor ice cream truck, before being restored to its former smile-giving glory.

While it never lived as hard a life as many of its brethren, it’s been able to provide a cool taste of summertime happiness to generations of ice cream lovers. After all, who doesn’t love hearing the ice cream truck in their neighborhood?
