1952 Ford F-1 Grins Like a Red Teeth Monster

The phrase “one of a kind” is often used in the custom industry, and in most cases, it actually is true. Still, that doesn’t mean that all of these unique builds are worthy of increased attention or a feature on some major publication’s homepage.

Since we decided to take a closer look at what’s out there on the custom market, we uncovered a long list of vehicles of all shapes and sizes that definitely were worthy. We’ve shared some of them with you this past year and, by the looks of it, we’ll not be stopping anytime soon. How could we, seeing how day after day things like this F-1 cross our screens?

Just like the trucks from Chevy’s C/K family, Ford’s F-Series pickups from the olden days are highly appreciated, especially the ones from the F-1 and F-100 lines. We’ve seen plenty of these too, but none quite as insanely painted.

This 1952 F-1 is proof that all you need to make a truck worth remembering is the clever use of paint. In this case, its body is covered in something deliciously called creme brulee white, contrasted on the wheels, sides of the hood, and especially the custom front grille by a very disturbing red. For the record, the trucks description identifies the paint as being gloss orange frost.

The interior continues the two-color play of the body panels, and it is one of the finest we’ve seen to date. The bed is hand-painted to match and features some cool graphics.

Under the hood, the truck hides a bored 272-ci (4.4-liter) V8 engine made in 1955, sending its power to the ground by means of a rebuilt C4 transmission. The performance specs are not known, though.

The truck, with its red teeth grille and all, is for sale and it’s going for $29,500.
