1948 FORD BONUS-BUILT (a rather odd name) was the first-generation F-Series truck going on sale January 16, 1948. Ford's new 'Bonus-Built' trucks were completely different from the car-based trucks they replaced. They had new integrated headlights, a one-piece windshield for increased visibility and larger cabs. They were powered by a 226 cubic inch flat-head 6 producing 95hp (71kW) at 3300rpm and sold in eight different weight ratings all sharing the same cab design with exception to the bus chassis and parcel-delivery vehicle.

AUTHENTICITY : Each drawing is limited to 10 signed and numbered prints regardless of size and comes together with a certificate & 10SERIE 'medallion'

PAPER : Professionally ink printed onto 350gsm Hahnemühle Museum Etching paper to achieve the best color & light fastness.

FRAME :

Profile : A 14 x 34mm (0,55 x 1.33inch) beveled profile made from Obeche (African Maple) which is depended upon for its stability and relative resistance to warping once machined. It is offered in either color black or white.

GLASS :

'Museum Glass' is 'non-reflective' and absorbs damaging UV light to allow over 98% transmission allowing only the best vibrant colors to translate and is advised for all the limited & signed prints.

'Standard' picture framing glass is a 2mm clear float glass. It is inexpensive and will protect your artwork from dust and physical damage.

BACKING :

Full archival acid-free board with 10mm deep-sunk (spacer) in same to create depth and set the artwork back off the glass.
