1949 Ford F1 PickUp Coca Cola Delivery by Mnichamps

The Ford F-Series truck has become a staple of the American road, enjoying unprecedented success in the Eighties and Nineties. The Ford truck has been the best-selling vehicle of any kind in America and the emblem of the truck mania that has swept through the U.S. auto market. Was there a single soul who could have imagined such a thing in 1948?
This is the first generation Ford F-Series produced between 1948-52 as a replacement for the previous car-based pickup line introduced in 1941. It had a flat, one-piece windshield a wider cab and integrated headlamps. F1 was the smallest of F serie 1/2 ton serving the broadest range of needs experienced by farmers, tradesmen, and merchants. Car was on the standard of today's small size. Only roof height was taller to accommodate the majority of truck owners who, as was the custom in those days, wore hats.

This model Minichamps is combination legendary brands Ford and Coca Cola - two door pickup model Coca Cola delivery (Official Licensed Product) in dark yellow color with matt black painted running boards. The grille composed of five thick horizontal bars and headlights resided in a recessed panel on the face of each vehicle. The ledge above the grille held chrome block letters that spelled out "FORD" and above this sat a large alligator-style hood with bright-trimmed "nostrils." The front bumper is painted in Coca Cola red color instead of the usual chrome. The same red color is applied to the wheels instead of the usual body color. All these details are faithfully captured in the model. The only inaccuracy is missing passenger-side windshield wiper. The pickup bed used a plastic imitation of hardwood floor with metal strips and wooden side panels. Coca Cola logo on the doors and the roof is very decently made. Model manufactured in 2010 can still be brought.
