ELIDA — Most car enthusiasts dream of owning a classic. Craig and Teresa Cobb, of Elida, will forever have fond memories while driving this beautiful 1948 Ford Pickup.
“My mom and step-dad live in California. My stepdad died, and Mom didn’t know how to drive a stick,” Teresa Cobb said.
Knowing how important driving a classic is to keep it running, Cobb’s mom called on them to take the truck.
“So we shipped it to Ohio,” Craig Cobb said.
This 1948 Ford Pickup is a first generation of Ford’s popular F-Series. These first trucks, from 1947 to 1952, are the only trucks that featured the Flathead engine. None of them included an automatic transmission.
The Cobb’s said the truck had been restored by Teresa’s stepdad. So once it arrived in Ohio, they have been able to enjoy it. They’ve had the truck for approximately one year. They take it to cruise-in’s and car shows.
