Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte is proud to digitally present this 1951 Ford F1.
After World War II, Ford’s wartime effort toward producing B-24 bombers, jeeps, tank engines, and other military hardware ended. When civilian passenger cars and trucks were put back into production, Ford had the same truck and car design since 1941. However, after the 1947 Model Year was introduced, a completely new design was planned, which could appeal to various applications, extending further than just having a single purpose.
The development objective included making driving easier, more comfortable, and roomier cab, and a great customer appreciation. When introduced, Ford’s new truck would be the only one featuring an all-new post-war design.
Step right up and feast your peepers on this gnarly 1951 Ford Pickup Rat Rod Truck, painted in a blazing shade of orange, that’ll make all the dolls swoon! This hot rod is powered by a growlin’ 351W V8, a slick C5 automatic transmission, and a rear end out of a 1967 Fairlane. When you’re cruising down the boulevard, crank up some tunes on the CD player and take a ride back in time. With power steering and power brakes, you’ll be able to handle this baby with ease. And check out that sawtooth sun visor and rear valance – it’s the cherry on top of this already sweet ride. But wait, there’s more! This beauty’s got a vacuum whistle horn that’ll turn heads and clear the way. So don’t be a square; get your hands on this one-of-a-kind beauty before it’s gone!
