This truck isn’t just any old Ford. It is from the first generation of the F-series truck which is still in production today. Ford didn’t come up with their slogan “Built Ford Tough” for their cars. They were talking about these beasts. They were built to work, so it can be hard to find early examples in good shape.

Power from this flathead V8 was feed to all four wheels. It wasn’t a lot of power by today’s standards, but back in the fifties this thing had to be quite the crawler. The seller claims that it was originally used by the Forestry Department in Washington state. During its service it has only racked up 57k miles. The mileage is believable since this is not something we would really want to take on the interstate.
