TRUCK YOU! A Classic 1949 Ford F-47 and Friends

By -


It would be a hard thing not to love old school trucks. Well, it would be a hard thing not to love old school rides in general. After all, these impressive beauties paved the way for the vehicles we have today. Of course, that’s not to say that classic rides are only worth the advancements they made in their day.

The reality is, there are many things that have faded away over time that we wish we still had today, such as steel construction, the emissions-free setup, and the timeless styling. But while we might be sad that these things are gone, we can at least appreciate the time when such rides ruled the streets.

Today we’ll be stepping into the garage of FTE member Earl, who is also known by his username Mervy49, and taking a closer look at his wonderful antique rig that lies within!


Earl is the proud owner of a 1949 Ford F-47. The ride is certainly what we’d call “old school,” given that is now sixty-seven years old! Amazingly enough, the ride is still going, and going strong, which is a truthful testament to just how durable Ford trucks were, and still are today.

The patina on the rig also looks pretty good, though we aren’t sure if Earl has any plans to change it. Regardless, seeing a ride such as this being taken care of so well is always a great thing!


Go check out Earl’s garage and leave some comments, browse the photography, and have great time! Be sure to keep your garage up to date and maybe you’ll be featured next week on TRUCK YOU!
