AutoHunter Spotlight: 1948 Ford F1 custom

First-model-year F-Series pickup with upgraded 350cid V8 engine


Ford’s first pickup in what we now call Ford’s F-Series was the F1, launched in 1948, and AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, has one up for auction.

This 1948 Ford F1 pickup is powered by 350cid V8 that’s been upgraded with a Cragar supercharger, an MSD ignition system, aluminum radiator and additional Edelbrock performance parts. Power is sent to the rear through a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic 350 transmission.
