1952 Ford F3

This pristine truck, with only 55,000 miles on it, hails from Saskatchewan. Kevin Brown has owned it for a mere three months but he is definitely in love. A very dear friend passed away recently and left Kevin the money to buy the truck. True friendship indeed.

The seafoam green paint colour is striking and suits this 3/4-ton truck perfectly.

The 1952 Ford F3 was built in the last year of the first generation of F-Series trucks that Ford produced from 1947 until 1952. This is the sole generation produced entirely with “Flathead” engines.

This first-gen F-Series came in eight different chassis (based on their GVWR), with F-1 being the lightest duty truck. The bare F-3 chassis was the basis for a parcel delivery truck. Options included a foot plunger to activate the windshield washer, a passenger-side windshield wiper & sun visor, and passenger-side taillight.

One of the options that Kevin is excited about is adding to his Ford F3 is a car seat for his four-year-old grandson, who loves the truck almost as much as grandad.
