Lot 277 - 1953 12918 F100 Pick-Up
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
The F-Series is a series of full size pick-up trucks from Ford which have been sold continuously for over six decades. The most popular variant of the F-Series is the F150. It has been the best selling vehicle in the United States for the past 32 years and the best selling pick-up for 43 years in Canada. The second generation F-series was introduced in 1953. The F1 became the F100 because of the popular culture influence of the North American F100 Super Sabre, the first supersonic fighter, which first flew 1953. Increased dimensions, improved engines and an improved chassis were features of the second generation.
Registered in the UK only recently, this Ford F100 has been used little of late and may require some light re-commissioning. Clearly, extensive work, time and investment has benefitted this vehicle and it appears to be in sound condition. The striking white coachwork is complemented by black trim and is further enhanced by the chrome wheels. Registered as an Historic vehicle, 780UYE benefits from being an MoT and Road Fund Licence exempt vehicle. These Pick-up trucks always create interest at auction; this one is sure to follow suit.
