Ford Other 1949 Description

I purchased this truck in 1995 and drove it for several years as a work/beater truck before deciding to restore it. This is a full frame off restoration. It is an all metal truck in very nice condition. Under 500 miles since completion. Engine was totally rebuilt to 30 thousands over, ll new pistons, alves and cams, am gears, lutch, ressure plate and pilot bearing. New carb, uel pump, elts, adiator re-cored, ew motor mounts, tc. Transmission was in good order and simply cleaned and reinstalled. Differential is good, o rebuild needed. Full Brake replacement, ith drums refinished. New tires in original style. All suspension components replaced as needed, ncluding all spring pins, lamps in rear and bushings and wear components in front. F-3 had overload springs, did not re-install them, his truck will never carry one ton loads again.

Truck is repainted in single stage Urethane paint, riginal color Meadowbrook Green. I chose this color, ruck was originally grey. Grille is original color aluminum. Engine color is red, hich was authentic for this truck in this year. Since the actual color is unknown, matched a bell housing non-faded color found during restoration. Seat fully rebuilt. Installed a Bruce Horkey bed kit, ncluding original under bed mounting wood, inished with 7 coats of spar varnish and with new stainless bed strips. New visor and interior dash plastic, love box etc. All gauges and lights work. Have installed signal lights in style of the era/period. Has full replacement headliner as per original. All glass channels replaced, ll glass in good condition, ith seals replaced on front and rear. Please ask questions, want any buyer to be fully satisfied.
