The year was 1948, World War II was over and people were beginning to get back into their normal routines when Ford introduced its first truly new pickup since the war began. Advertised as a Bonus Built truck, it was named F-1, the first Ford truck to wear the F designation. Two L-head engines were available for the new light duty trucks. The 7H version of Ford's 226 cubic inch, six cylinder engine, which was used in the 1947 passenger cars, was rated at 95 horsepower at 3300rpm. For an additional charge, buyers could opt for the 239 cubic inch, V-8 engine that gave 100 horsepower at 3,800rpm. A three-speed gearbox with a floor gear change was standard in the F-1 with heavy duty three and four speeds gearboxes available as extra cost options.

Described as a stalled restoration project. This '52 Ford 'stepside' model has the flathead V8 engine with 3-speed gearbox. It is offered with the V5c and was imported into the UK in 2018. We are told it is believed to have been used in the famous American TV sitcom Sanford & Son.
