THE 1948 FORD TRUCK

Ford introduced their last pre-war model in 1941, with a design by Bob Gregorie. The 1942 Fords were the last produced before civilian production was shut down in favor of supporting the war effort. For the return to civilian production in 1946, the design was refreshed, with the final 1947 refresh lasting until the 1949 model year. While the styling was long-lived, it still inspired others – the Swedish Volvo 444 being one such vehicle apparently influenced by Ford's styling.

The first-generation F-Series truck was introduced in late 1947, replacing Ford trucks introduced in 1941. From 1948 to 1950, the grill was a series of horizontal bars and the headlights were set into the fenders. Other modification included increased interior dimensions, which started with a seven-inch stretch in cab width, and by positioning the door hinges three inches farther forward, easier entry was obtained. The steering wheel was more horizontal and mounted closer to the driver, and a three-person bench seat moved back and forward. To help isolate frame flex, rubber mounts were used between cab and frame.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautiful 1948 Ford pickup is being sold in incredibly well restored condition, finished in contrasting burgundy and black exterior paint finish. The truck's bed is finished with Oak wooden slats which nicely compliment the tanned interior that covers the bench seat in the cab. Comprehensively restored, there was not a single component of the truck that was overlooked.

This pickup also retains a Ford flathead V8, delivering power to the rear wheels through a 3-speed manual transmission which was standard in the F-1 truck. Little is known about this truck's early history, but in recent years, it has been well preserved in a prominent private collection where it has been routinely maintained and exercised.
