1949 Ford F1 Pickup

Buy it for weekend cruises. But mostly because it'll look good in your driveway.

We often lust over sleek new adventuremobiles, equipped with the coolest tech of tomorrow. But voice navigation and GoPro compatibility fall to the wayside when we're looking at the classic cool of this 1949 Ford F1.

In addition to crushing at car shows, the two-door pickup is ready to cruise. Fully restored in 2012, it’s equipped with a 351-cubic-inch V8 Windsor crate motor good for 325 horsepower, plus air conditioning and power steering. The cab is upholstered with a rich brown leather that looks awesome paired with the bronze exterior, while the truck bed and sideboards are made of a beautiful hickory.

And with only a few hundred miles on the engine, this 66-year-old pickup has plenty of miles ahead.
