So you want a vintage truck, you want a driver, you want to be able to use it, lean on it, stand on the running boards, load stuff in the back, work it, cruise it and have fun with it - AND you want to get attention wherever you go?. The truck has been around simply 'forever', and isn't a product of the Rat Rod movement, faux patina movement or anything like that, it just is what it is - and in being so is unique and one of a kind. It's never been restored, and being a West Coast vehicle it's whole life hasn't been subjected to the ravages of salt, or excess moisture. The truck is super solid, and just a great old truck to hop in and drive, in fact - it's a treat to drive.
Under the hood is a 70's era Ford 302 - yes, this is a Ford in a Ford!. The carb is a 600cfm Edelbrock version and it sits atop a Weiand aluminum intake manifold. The valve covers are vintage Cal Custom units, and other than that the engine is pretty much stock. The distributor was a little worn, and was replaced a few months ago. It runs all day long, doesn't knock, no excessive smoke, and doesn't overheat. The exhaust exits through some unique small tube headers and out through a brand new aluminized steel exhaust system - into Flowmasters. The transmission is a Ford C4, and has a cooler. It's shifted by what looks like a 4 speed shifter that's floor mounted, and the shifter has a nice Hurst boot. The driveline is a basic and easy to work on hotchkiss (modern open u-joint) driveline, and the rear end is all 1951 Ford F1. The truck stops via hydraulic brakes, the mechanical versions are long gone. Front axle is all original, other than having hydraulic/juice brakes. It doesn't wander, and the king pins have been done. All the suspension is original type with transverse mounted springs front and rear, and the wishbones are still in place, though the rears are split very slightly. The steering box is most likely a later F1 unit too - and it steers super nice. All the electrical is 12 volt, so no worries about dim lights and such. The wheels are 16 inch out back and 15 up front - but it's all 5 on 5 1/2 early ford bolt pattern - so it's correct and like it should be. Hub caps are '41 Ford units, originals not repro, and in nice shape.
The tires are like new, and are radials all around. The suspension isn't lowered at all, so you could do a drop axle, or shackles - Inside is pretty basic, but it has all the things you could want - electric wipers, an AM/FM 8 Track stereo ,a really effective underseat heater and has really basic instruments such as a temperature guage. The factory guages and speedo are all in place, but are inop at this time. Not sure what the steering column is out of, but it works well and mounts a Grant type steering wheel. The turn signals work - There is a horn. The stereo works great as does the heater and heater fan The headlights, low beams and high beams all work, and the tailights, brake lights, turn signals out back all work - you'll note there's even a license plate light. All the glass is good, has been replaced with a darker tint all around - this is darker tint modern safety glass, not film and it all matches shadewise. All the original garnish trim is still in place inside - the off white inside trim must have been painted long ago judging by the wear on the drivers door opening where an elbow would rest and the colonial/off-white shade sets off the interior nicely. The cowl vent works as it should. The bumpers - front and rear are '41 Ford units, not repro, but originals,
