Geelong’s annual All Ford Day is always a feast of Blue Oval machinery – new, old, original and custom – and this year’s show was no exception.
The JUST CARS crew missed this neatly detailed and finely finished F-1 pickup on our way into this year’s All Ford Day, but it certainly caught our attention on the way out!
Finished in gunmetal grey metallic paint, enhanced by a set of 20-inch American Racing alloys, this 1949-model F-1 also wore a chrome grille and bumpers – features rarely seen on these pickups when new.
At the rear, the customised tub featured smoothed sides and a metal floor. Custom tail lights and tailgate had been fitted, while the fuel filler was neatly incorporated into the offside front corner of the tub. In the cabin, there was custom trim and a right-hand drive conversion.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find out what was under the bonnet of this pickup, but given the twin pipes exiting the rear, we’re guessing some sort of potent V8, most likely matched to an auto.
