This 1952 Ford F-1 Truck (originally an Idaho farm truck) was a complete restoration project, the goal being to keep as many of the original parts as possible.

Since its visit to Black Wolf, this original flathead V8 runs so well, that at idle, you can hardly tell it’s running. The only modern amenity added to this truck was a front disc brake system and a brake power booster discreetly hidden under the cab. As a result the Ford F-1 is much easier and safer to drive, and stops on a dime.
