This Handsome Vintage Ford Truck Went for the Price of a Fusion
Decisions, decisions. For $22,260, you could buy an entry-level 2016 Ford Fusion. Or, like the person who took the truck you see here off the market, you could pass over a brand new car for a vintage vehicle with a lot of character and pay roughly the same amount of money.
This 1952 Ford F1 received a frame-off restoration back in 1986. In the past year, this nearly-daily-driven pickup has been outfitted with a variety of parts, including fresh wires and fuses, a 12-volt electrical conversion, custom gauges, replacement flooring, and a new carburetor for its 239-cubic-inch V8. Its three-speed manual gearbox is now connected to new clutch linkage bushings.
It’s not perfect, though. It has a little bit of rust in the lower parts of its front fenders and a few stone nicks in its rich paint. However, it must’ve been perfect for some old-school Blue Oval fan out there. They decided to pay $21,500 for it.
