This vehicle was used as a transportable revolving art museum used throughout New England and South Florida.
The Ford F-Series is a legendary nameplate that continues to this day. In addition to pickup trucks, the F-Series is also known for panel vans and cab chassis trucks too. Naturally, it makes an excellent platform to build a custom vehicle, such as this 1952 Ford F-3 Custom that's up for sale with us right now. This is a build like no other and is still a blank canvas in the sense that you can choose what you'd like to do with its cavernous rear space. Let's discover more about this unique vehicle.
The new paint job that was reportedly done in 2023 saw this 1952 Ford F-3 Custom decked out in a catchy Dolphin's Teal and Orange two-tone theme. Indeed it does look stunning, aided by its white steel wheels with new Firestone Destination tires. Furthermore, the rear wheels are 'faired-in' with orange covers. We observe that all lighting and brightwork appear in great nick, and the current owner tells us that added rear-view mirrors are on board to enhance visibility due to the sizable box behind the cab. A hood vent has been added as well. Inside the cab, the original red color of the truck is visible, as is its classic bench seat and white-accented dashboard. The original push-button radio still sits in the dash but is reportedly not functioning. In fact, the interior has been left as-is, as a sort of time capsule to remind us of what this truck was like in its heyday. Whether you choose to keep it like this, restore it to period glory, or modernize it is entirely up to you. Meanwhile, the sizable cargo box behind the cab has been outfitted with shelves for storage but otherwise remains a blank canvas. Perhaps you can turn it into a camper. Or a food truck. Or a mobile office. The possibilities are endless. The vehicle's build plate tells us that it bears a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 6,800 pounds, so bear that in mind.
This 1952 Ford F-3 Custom appears to pack a V8 under the hood, possibly the 239ci Flathead V8 that was offered across the range, although we can't confirm it with certainty. A manual transmission sends power to the wheels. Furthermore, we're told that the truck has received a new starter, gas tank, brakes, belts, radiator and wiring unit.
