1951 Ford F1 Ranger Marmon-Herrington

Despite the modern “Build Ford Tough” slogan and mentality, back in 1951 Ford did not produce any 4×4 drivetrain vehicles – SUV or otherwise. Instead, vehicles like this one had to get assistance from specialty maker Marmon Harrington. They would head straight from the factory to the workshop where the body was then modified by a company called Seibert, while Marmon handled the drivetrain conversion.

As for these Ford F1 Rangers, it’s rumored only 54 of these vehicles were ever built between 1949 and 1952. Only 11 are known to exist currently – of which only two are restored. This build was the first ever to receive the “Ranger” designation by Ford. As for this particular truck, is was purchased in 2008 from its last owner and was professionally restored to 100 percent original condition by J&L Fabricating in Puyallup, WA over two years. It features a flathead V8 engine, four-speed manual transmission, restored Ford Sheridan Blue paint job, vinyl interior, and to to everything off, only 74 miles on the odometer. Price available upon request. [Purchase]
