Classic pickup truck fans, rejoice MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this very hard to find 1949 Ford F3 Ton Pickup Truck. This is the heavy duty version of the original Ford FSeries that has a 6,800 pound gross vehicle weight with a full size 8x4 foot bed designed to carry a 2,600 pound load. Ford produced a lot of these trucks but the problem is everyone worked them to death over many generations so finding a good example today is a very rare sight This truck has benefitted from a full professional frameoff nut and bolt restoration with the original condition steering left intact for character. This F3 looks brilliant in the sunlight with its Vermillion Red exterior and no need to worry about scorching on hot summer days, this truck is equipped with functional air conditioning for those hot afternoons
Dressed in a brilliant Vermillion, this trucks paint and trim are in overall very excellent condition. The trucks flat, onepiece windshield and other glass panels are also in very good order. The lights on this Fseries look great as well. The truck rolls on tires, sized 7.5017 surrounding original Ford wheel covers. The tires and wheels look great.
All of this trucks body panels are straight and solid, including the cargo bed, which has a wooden plank floor and nearly flawless inner bedsides. The engine bay is tidy and the bumpers are in good shape. A fullsized spare tire is mounted beneath the eightfoot cargo bed. This truck features a standard driverside windshield wiper only, but has the optional passenger door mirror and the truck has been upgraded to a converted 12volt electrical system but the horn and fuel gauge are inoperable.
Under the hood is Fords 8RT 239 CID Flathead V8 engine buttoned to a 4speed stump puller manual transmission with a spur gear.
Inside, the tan bench seat is in very good overall condition. Theres a black mat on the floor but it doesnt extend under the seat and is in good condition. The trucks headliner and red metal instrument panel are in very good order. The original threespoke steering wheel is present and the bare red inner door panels look great. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good order. Rounding out the interior is a factory AM radio. Truck is equipped with a underdash Ford heater box and under the seat is a functional custom air conditioning unit with custom ac vent routing to both side doors. We must admit, that this is one of the nicest functional custom air conditioning systems that we have ever seen in a vintage pickup
The firstgeneration FSeries truck (known as the Ford BonusBuilt) was introduced in late 1947 (went on sale January 16, 1948) as a replacement for the preWar designed Ford trucks. It had a flat, onepiece windshield and integratedheadlamps.It had a wider cab.Options included the "SeeClear" windshield washer (operated by foot plunger), passengerside windshield wiper and sun visor and passengerside taillight. All Fseries were available with optional "MarmonHerringtonAll Wheel Drive" until 1959.
The most noticeable change on the 1949 trucks was the deletion of the red pinstripes on the silver painted grille bars. Wheels were painted to match body color, rather than the previous black wheels.
Competition to this Ford in 1949 included Chevrolets AdvanceDesign pickup truck, GMCs New Design pickup truck and Dodges BSeries pickup truck.
