Here sits a gritty and flaking vintage Ford pickup truck, a mid-century F model parked in the blowing jingweeds behind a barn. If miles were money and this old relic could talk, you would have a very expensive volume of stories to ride around in. But, living history is nearly a fantasy, so only your imagination is left standing there holding the figurative brush to paint over the holes that history has left you. And that can be entertaining.
This vehicle was found in a semi-secret Virginia truck graveyard deep in the backcountry farmland that contained mostly tractor trailers, but there were numerous Ford pickups of this kind gathered off into one section. It is a private collection and apparently, the owner has quite a soft spot for these old F models, the forerunners of the modern Ford F-150’s seen on the road today seventy years later.
Location: rural Fluvanna County, Virginia.
