Description

Built during the golden anniversary of the Ford Motor Company, and representing the first truck to wear the F-100 nameplate, this 1953 Ford F-100 pickup is described as the recipient of a restoration and repaint that the seller says has left the truck in both presentable and functional condition. The F-100 is said to have won numerous awards at local car shows in Massachusetts and is believed to still have its original straight-six engine and is described as free of both cab leaks and rust, per the seller. This F-100 is powered by the truck’s base engine, the 215-cu.in. OHV straight-six. With a compression ratio of 7.0:1 and a single downdraft carburetor, the engine was rated by the manufacturer at 101 horsepower when new. The seller believes this F-100’s engine is original to the truck, stating that it “starts and idles perfectly,” without smoke. The three-speed manual transmission is reported to “shift properly,” and the seller notes no powertrain leaks. The engine bay presents as being stock and strongly clean. The F-100 was painted before his ownership, describing the finish as being in “very good” overall condition, with no bubbling or swirls and no body blemishes. He states that the cab seals are in “excellent” condition and that the truck is “free of rust.” The cargo bed appears to be pristine and damage-free, per the images, with a new wooden floor and mounting hardware. The truck is fitted with chromed front and rear bumpers. The seller reports that the cab glass is “free of scratches and cracks,” and that all lighting works. The F-100’s underside presents as being strongly clean. The vinyl seating surfaces appear to be in excellent, damage-free condition, per the photos, and the rubber floormats appear to be in very good condition. the cab headliner is in “very good” shape, with functional dome lighting, and he also notes that none of the cab’s interior trim or small controls are missing, all instruments and the heater are operable, and a modern audio system is located inside the glove compartment. the chassis was restored prior to his ownership and continues to be regularly inspected. The components are said to be in “very good” condition, with no functional issues.
