The F Series pickups were the centerpiece of Ford's post-war line of "Bonus Built" trucks introduced in 1951. This restored long-wheelbase F2 stake bed pickup showcases the first-year model's toothy grille and roomy "Million Dollar" cab that Ford promoted as possessing "living room comfort." Brightly finished in red with chromed wheel trim and black underpinnings, it features a flathead V-8 and floor-shifted three-speed manual beneath its bull-nose hood, a fresh-looking grey bench-seat interior, and nicely finished wood cargo bed. This delightful vintage Ford pickup rides on new Firestone radials.
