Ford F1 1948 rebuilt in Pakistan

I recently purchased a 1948 Ford F1 from California, shipped it to Karachi, Pakistan where I live, and completely rebuilt it there.

My last Off-Road adventures in Pakistan were in the mid 80's in the North West Area and involved Horses and the Boarder with Afganistan.
Oh, I almost forgot the bribes to the local Tribal Chief and War Lords for permission to pass through or die.

Very nice, I spent one night in Karachi and a long six weeks in Tarbela north of Islamabad back in the early 80's. Didn't see many trucks like that over there, must be quite an attraction. Keep it locked up and good trucking.

Very nice indeed. I do wonder how a righthand drive truck landed up in California and do the Pakistan trucks have right or left hand drive as the norm? And welcome to the FTE , your truck is awsome.

I don't care where it came from or where it was rebuilt; that's a FINE-looking truck!

Well done!

The truck was originally left hand drive - in Pakistan, we drive on the left hand side of the road, so after bringing the truck over from California, we moved the steering to the other side. This wasn't easy as the whole dashboard configuration needed to be flipped.
