We love classic cars around here, particularly the performance cars. There is something to be said for a classic that isn’t your typical Mustang. Take this 1952 Ford F2 pickup. It’s been customized and looks fantastic. The seller says that the 1952 Ford F2 was a professional frame-off restoration.
The seller claims to have over $100,000 invested in the truck, and you can see that in it. The truck is a 1952 Ford F2 / Five Star Extra cab. It has been modified with the bed shortened 18 inches, the hood is louvered, and the front and rear pans are rolled. The truck has custom taillights, custom tailgate, the license plate is recessed in the roll pan, and it has a fabricated tonneau cover.
The floor of the bed is made from oak wood with chrome stirps between. The bedcover has an electric automatic up feature and is lockable. The 1952 Ford F2 is painted in PPG Seminole metallic red. We mentioned the bed of the truck had been shortened; the truck also has a narrowed 1975 LTD front clip and stock LTD front suspension with adjustable coilovers.
The rear suspension is 1952 F2 leaf springs with multiple leafs removed. The rear is a Ford 9-inch unit, and the truck has drum rear brakes and Ford 11 inch front brakes. The steering box is out of a Ford LTD, and the wheels are Budnick 15×6 front and 15×8 rear.
Under the hood is a 1975 Ford 302 cubic-inch V8 paired with a 1975 Ford C4 automatic. The old gauges from the truck have been replaced with digital units; it also has heat and AC from Old Air products. The truck appears to be very well done and in perfect condition. The seller is asking $34,000. Check out this 1970 Mustang Mach 1 that was wrapped to look like a barn find.
