2012 SEMA: F-Rod 1950 Ford F-1

The history of the F-Series Ford trucks is over six decades long, starting with the first generation model in 1948 and ending with the current EcoBoost powered machines. It’s been the most popular vehicle in the United States for a number of decades, and unsurprisingly there’s a lot of custom projects around.

We’re fans of a good classic, so we thought we’d bring you this, the “F-Rod” based on the 1950 F-1 pickup, from the 2012 SEMA Show floor. It’s got all the usual customization done to it and is remarkable fresh and elegant.

The frame is from the original truck but has been stepped and boxed for that lowrider look. The engine chosen is a Ford GT-40 crate fitted with all the chrome bells and whistles and mated to a Ford AOD 4-speed automatic and a 9” rear end.

The bed is customized with a TV and bespoke lighting and features a hydraulic lifting mechanism. Meanwhile, the interior is done in camel leather and ostrich for the seat centers and door cards.
