289 and a slushbox aren't my idea of "restored", but it's sure purty...

A lot of guys don't know the difference between "restored" and "rebuilt" as there are dozens of things that are non-stock, but its still a nice looking rig...

$50,000? Not where I come from

I like that it's advertised as an F100.

Was a 1940 called an F-1 or just a pickup?

I don't think they used the F-1 moniker until 1948, so the F100 term is definitely out.

My father had a 1941 Ford pickup, but I also agree with Fatherdoug about the F-Series being introduced in 1948, for 1998 was the 50th anniversary of the F-Series. 1953 was the first year of the F-100, F-250, F-350, etc., and in 1975 the F-Series line up changed again with the addition of the F-150 to get around the emissions regulations with a higher GVW rating for the half ton. In 1978 there was another couple of changes one was the addition of the Ranger Lariat, which was the high end truck in the F-Series, and the other was a Louisville patterned grille which was a miniature version of the Louisville grille.

Beautiful truck.....but Doug, I never understood why people would sink $50k in a rebuild and not spend a few more grand on AC and AT.....I understand the nostalgia of a standard shift, but anyone willing to fork out that kind of dough is going to want some comfort during the summer months of cruising and not worry or care about manual transmission.

That said, it is a beautifully done truck....the dash is stunning!

That is an automatic transmission, Ken. It's just in a different place.

Oops...my bad.....the stick shift in the cab threw me off.....always looking for either the small shifter on the floor or on the column. Sorry about that.
