1950 Ford F1
First introduced in 1948, the Ford Bonus-Built trucks and were produced in several variants until 1952. These models included pickup trucks (F-1, F-2, F-3), panel trucks, cab-over-engine (COE) chassis, a school bus chassis, as well as medium/heavy-duty trucks. The more common F-1 pickups, such as this one, were in the 1/2 ton class and featured 6 1/2-foot beds, a front grille composed of horizontal bars and headlights mounted in the fenders (this design would be changed significantly after the 1950 model year). A one-piece windshield was implemented, as well as a wider cab compared to Ford’s pre-war models. The appearance of the 1950 Ford F-Series trucks deviated little from the previous year, with the most significant change being the relocation of the 3-speed manual transmission from the floor to a column-mounted position mid year. A few engine options were available in 1950 and they included a 225 CID Flathead 6, 239 CID Flathead V8 and 254 CID Flathead 6 (F-6 variant only). This truck is equipped with the flagship 239 CID Flathead V8 and non-synchronized 3-speed manual transmission (w/ creeper gear) located on the floor of the cab. Other features include a posi-traction rear end, 6 volt electrical system, driver and passenger side tail lights, drum brakes, dual horns, push button AM radio, “Magic Air” heater/defroster, seatbelts, steel bed floor, and sun visors. The 5 digit odometer reads: “75715”. An original owner’s manual is also available. Ford’s F-Series trucks have gone through numerous generational changes since their introduction and continue to be make history today.
