The Ford F-Series is the Blue Oval's longest-running nameplate. Since 1948, Ford has been knocking them out in spades, and today's F150 is a direct descendant of those early trucks. Of course, those early trucks are much-loved, being pieces of automotive history. Take this 1953 Ford F100 Custom for example. It's a custom job that looks stunning. Truly a one-of-a-kind machine, you can be its next lucky owner.
First off, this 1953 Ford F100 Custom has been lowered and painted in a regal Plum Crazy Purple color. Then, it's been given some shiny wheels and meaty BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires to roll on. Peeking into the truck bed reveals an exquisitely redone affair with strips of wood and metal. You won't want to use this as a work truck. It's a piece of art. Further details include chrome exhaust tips, chrome wipers, and a chrome front grille. The Ford F100 badging has been restored to its former glory as well. Inside, there's a tweed-themed cabin with two individual seats that are power-adjustable. The current owner reports a tilt-and-telescopic steering column to have been added, as well as power windows. There's also air conditioning, which is said to not be connected in the pursuit of horsepower. Therefore, connecting it should be simple, and we'd recommend it if you're a comfort seeker. Next up on the upgrade list is an Alpine radio cassette head unit. That's not all it can play, as a foray into the glovebox reveals an Alpine CD Shuttle CD changer is present. We must also draw your attention to the digital dash that fits neatly within the aperture for the stock factory gauges. In addition to speed and fuel, the unit appears to also display engine revs, battery voltage, water temperature, and oil pressure.
This 1953 Ford F100 Custom packs a 350ci Chevy V8 and an automatic transmission with a Quicksilver shift kit. The current owner claims that the engine and transmission have been rebuilt but lacks documentation to prove it. There's a reportedly redone Ford rear end to drive the rear wheels. The engine has also received a cam and lifters. Finally, there are power steering and power disc brakes at the front to augment the rear drums.
