1951 Ford F1 Pickup VIN 28145 The Glass Pearl was built by Jeff Jones at Jones Rod and Custom. The truck was first owned by a family member who got it as a 40th birthday present. It had been hibernating in a garage for the last 15 years with no work being done to it. When the opportunity to buy the truck came up, Jeff jumped on it. In August of 2014 he started working on the truck in his shop, Jones Rod and Custom. It was the first full project to be built there. The build had a deadline, Torquefest in May of 2015. This truck has been featured in HopUp magazine. An original issue of the magazine is included in the sale. http://www.hopupmagazine.com/hero/jeffery-jones-51-ford-truck/ Mechanics Ford 302ci V8 Engine Edelbrock 4bbl Carb Weiand Aluminum Intake Ford AOD Transmission Dana 44 Open Rear End with 3.92:1 Gears Power Front Disc Brakes, Rear Drum Manual Rack and Pinion Steering Chrome Alternator Headers Glasspack Mufflers Electric Fan New Radiator HEI Distributor Aluminum Valve Covers Mustang II Front Suspension New Rear Shocks Ladder Bar Set Up Air Ride New Gas Tank Out Back Body Sea Glass Pearl-a Modern Toyota Prius Color All Chrome was Redone New Fiberglass Fenders and Running Boards Fiberglass Front Valance Stock 1951 Cab and Doors Door Lips and Jambs are Solid, Clean and Nicely Painted All New 18 Gauge Sheet Metal Box New Tailgate with Hidden Latches and Hinges All New Oak Bed with Polished Rails Highly Detailed Undercarriage Beautiful Chrome Hubcaps Coker Classic Wide Whites G78-15 Tires Brand New less than 100 Miles Interior Custom Interior by Mike Lawson from Kustom Image Upholstery Custom Vinyl Interior White and Blue Metallic Tuck and Roll Upholstery Bench Seat Lokar Floor Shifter Beautiful 1954 Ford Steering Wheel AutoMeter Gauges Air Ride Controls in Custom Dash Compartment Seatbelts Beautiful White Headliner Interior Paint Work is Beautiful Don\'t Miss Out!
