1947 Ford F1 Pickup Hot Rod
Why This Car Is Special
The 1947 Ford pickups like the Hot Rod version we have here at Skyway Classics, are highly sought after as pre-war nostalgia street rods. This one has many upgrades that have given this truck a new stance, aggressive power, and great ride.
The 1947 F1 we have is powered by the tried & true 327 cubic inch small block Chevy engine and backed by a 3-speed automatic Turbo 350 transmission. It has performance upgrades including polished valve covers and air cleaner, an Edelbrock carburetor and Performer RPM intake, straight-pipe headers, and it even has air conditioning too.
Look some more in the engine compartment and you will see the higher capacity performance radiator, performance ignition and spark plug wires, and much more let alone it all sits in a custom frame with coil-over shocks, A-arm front suspension, and a complete Corvette rear assembly.
The inside is comfortable and ready for the road with its soft cloth type bench seat, custom dash housing AutoMeter and Bosch custom performance gauges, a black spoked tilt steering wheel, floor shifter, and air conditioning.
If you look into the bed of the truck, you will see a spectacular wood finished cargo area.
This Ford has a perfect stance with its forward rake, great body that was lowered, custom matte grey and polished mag wheels with black wall tires, and chrome front grille.
When you combine all that you get a sinister look that is always the center of attention at the car and truck shows. It looks just like it should as a real hot rod and street rod truck that was built by all the servicemen who came home from the war and started the Hot Rod era.
We really covet early post-war trucks like the 1947 Ford pickup Hot Rod version we have here at Skyway Classics and you really need to come see its unique performance setup and feel the powered and drivability for yourself.
