Hi, I just found your website, Its Fantastic!. I just bought a 1950 Ford F-3/Boyertown Body. This was one of the 2200 Trucks ordered by the U.S. Post Office back in 1950. There is one in the Postal Museum in Washington DC, and One in the Boyertown Truck Museum in Boyertown PA. As I write, my drop center wheels are being sandblasted and powdercoated. If the locking area looks good after blasting and paint they will be used. I know they are a problem, but before I picked the truck up, I had ordered 17" tires from Coaker tire along with the tubes and flaps for a total of around $900.00. If I would have known at the time of the danger of these wheels, I would have looked for 16" one piece wheel. I have been told that if the wheel is sound in that locking area, they should be OK. Thanks for a "Great Website" I will be back often. Tom Murray, "Old Fords Forever"

Trying to fix up my 71 F100 floor panels....rusted out bad. Looking for tips to replace the panels so they line up well with the cab mounts which are in good shape. Rubber mounts seem to go up into the flat portion under the truck (what is left of the flat portion). The inside of the floor looks like an easy fix with sheet metal, roofing cement and rivets...sound fair? It is the external portion that concerns me most as the left quarter panel behind the wheel well is dropping away from the top of the front fender. I believe this is because the floor is sagging past the cab mount. Sound possible? I am thinking I need to support the cab from underneath and jack it up a few inches before making a replacement piece of sheet metal to re-create the external portion of the floor. The left side is worse than the right, but both sides need replacement. Your pictures were great. Wish I could weld like that. All I have is a 110 gasless mig welder and I can't seem to do much with it, but keep trying. Thinking of trying my hand at a small stick welder. My welds have a lot of splatter and dont flow for shit. Probably as much my fault as cheap equipment. Any tips on the repair would be appreciated. Thanks for listening if nothing else.

Have inherited a 1950 f2. The truck has been setting for over 25 years (grandpa's truck). I would like to restore it to everyday driving condition. Couple of questions. Do I need to swap out the front end for better ride comfort and with what. Is there a direct bolt on. Same for the rear. The truck as you cam imagine has plenty of rust and the bed floor has decinergrated. It's a long bed, I would prefer a short bed. Can that detail be converted easily ? Lastly It has a flat head 8 cylinder engine. Will this engine hold up to daily driving at today's speeds and acceleration ? Oh and what about breaks, any ideas. Listen fellas I admit I'm new at this this but committed. Any ideas, info, enlightenment would be appreciated. And what is the difference between the f1 and the f2 anyway ?
I have a '48 f-1 panel project and looking for some hinges for the right side rear door.

Enjoyed your site. Just purchased a 1950 F3 which I plan to restore. Don't know much about it yet and your web site is a great help. It has 38,000 original miles and I just started it this past weekend for he first time in four years. It purrs like a kitten. Didn't even put new plugs in it yet. Just put in a new battery, gasoline and water in the radiator and it ran fine. Forgot to check the brakes before I started down the driveway and learned real quick that I didn't have any managed to get it stopped withe the emergency brake. After putting in some brake fluid and bleeding the brakes it stopped fine. The brakes are tight and I can't figure out how to adjust them. The older cars that I worked on in the 1950s had a slot in the back and top of the wheel assembly but I don't see one on the F3. Any advice?

Hello. I have a 1951 Ford F6 truck with 6-cyl engine and split rear-end. This is a former Texaco refinery grass fire truck but now has a 12-ft flatbed on it. If anyone can help I need to know: (1) - How do I determine if I have the "H" or the "M" 6-cyl engine? (2) - THis one has an electric fuel pump mounted on the right fender wall, but did these have engine-driven fuel pumps, too? (I do not see one on this one). (3) - Where is a good place to get parts for this truck? (4) - What weight of motor oil should I put in the engine? Any help GREATLY appreciated. Thanks! Dan Howard, Tulsa, OK 918-260-7728

I have a 1948 F3 that was purchased for a song It will be a while before the restoration begins but with the research and seeing all of the nice old truck pics it will be worth it to one day drive this 48 od the highway.

Really appreaciated your pics & stories. Especially of the F-2. I have a '49 F-2 myself that is being restored. A '49 freak I have completed a woodie and am in the middle of re-dooing a convertable. When these are a little farther along I'm looking forward to my '51 school bus project. Thanks again, Keith

In my search for a forum to market my newly acquired antique Ford Fire/pumper truck, I came across your classified ad offering your 1951 Ford Truck for sale. Your vehicle has been preserved/restored so well that I can only assume you are a seasoned enthusiast of this class of vehicle, which leads me to inquire if you may be willing to offer me any assistance or insight on how I might go about the task of marketing my truck to the groups of potential buyers who would appreciate the value of what I have in this 1-owner, volunteer fire department 1951 Ford F6 M pumper truck with only 6,700 ORIGINAL MILES and full documentation. This vehicle is complete, original and ready for a new owner with an interest in antique trucks. Can you point me in the right direction of my target market? Thanks and best regards, Steve Dowd (602) 760 - 9549

Bob: About 2 years ago I bought from you some rear shock mounts for my 52 F3; I think that they came from an older F2 that you have. I have not put them in yet, but I will. I will be taking some pictures of my F3 soon, so I will send you some shots that you may post on your nice site. SteV8e

Hello Bob, thanks again for the running boards. over the last two years the '48 panel has come along and moved all the way up to Oregon.since we got here we haven't made too much progress, but all we need is a gas tank, a driveshaft, and to wire it, and a killer paint job!

I wrote a note before, but I goofed and said I had a 1940 F1 pickup and a 1954 Ford Panel. I do have the panel, but the pickup is a 1949, not a 1940. Oh well, I hope my truck building is better than my typing. One thing I did want to say, is that every thing done to my trucks are done right here at my house, absolutely nothing is farmed out. I hate going to shows and looking at how much someone paid someone else to do. It is great when someone ask, Who did the paint, welding, etc, and I can honestly say, I DID. Take care and keep um on the road.

Great to see your progress. I have a 1940 F1 pickup I have been working on and have in pretty good shape. I also have a 54 ford panel. The body is in pretty good shape, and I have put a volarie front end in it, but that is about all I have had time to do. I am thinking about selling the panel, but I am wishy washy about it. You know how it is. At first it looks like an enormouse task, but as things come together pride in accomplishment starts to settle in. I will make up my mind soon. I hope.

Hi...nice site thought it is quite old. Is the '48 finished? I have one and use it for my biz. But, recently, had a fender bender and need body parts for the right rear. Any chance you know of one around ('48 thru '52 had same body style) that I could buy a filet of?? Rick Boise

Well, since I am here. I have one 1949 Ford F-4 farm truck. Black in color, flat head V-8 and the tires have been holding ever since 1949 as far as I can tell. About 1980 my Brother purchased it from a family farm auction for a reasonable price I am sure. He kept it in the family and I was pleased to hear it. About 5 years later I hear that he sold it to a man in our town near by. I was shocked that I did not get notice of the sale so I could have the chance to keep the family 49 in the family. I went to the person and ask if he would want to sell the old truck to me and he said, Tim, I really do not want the truck, I just want the wood farm bed off the truck, why you can have the old truck. I about fell over in shock. I then rushed to the rental place and loaded MY new old 1949 Ford on a dolly and headed for Indianapolis with a smile as big as Texas. I still have the old family keep sake and never plan to see it leave my grasp. I drive it each week somewhere near by and love the way the Flathead V-8 purrrrs along in each gear with the whine as you accelerate along. I now have a different bed on the old 49 that is pretty heavy since it came off a 1935 White dump truck. But it looks great and works so well. I would love to purchase a nice light weight flat bed, but one day...I use to take my 49 to old days truck shows where no awards were issued and it was much fun. It is far from new and I like it that way for the usefull purpose. I have collected a few spare parts to keep the baby going should need be. I have only taken about 2,000 pictures of the 49 since I have had it and each one is a treat to look at. I have had all sorts of different plates issued for the use of the truck like a 16,000 lb plate one year so I could haul stone for my drive way, and now a 7,000 lb plate to give it a breather from the hard work. I like the site here and thanks for the time to express my 49 Ford views. See ya Ford Friends Tim

Very good site! I just bought a 48 F1 Panel in Nevada last week and drove it back to South Carolina. It already has a 351W and a C-4 in it as well as a mustang front end and 9" rear with 373 gears(great gas milage}. There is a lot to do to get it to where I want it but it runs great, so I can drive while I work. The body is decent but could use a right rear door or maybe even both if anyone has them reasonably priced. Thanks for the site!

Well its me again. I picked up the truck deal today--what a surprise. So far I have a total of $65 invested in what I thought was going to be a smaller truck turned out to be a 1952 2 ton f6 flatbed duelly. The truck was given to me but had to be towed after I pulled out of 5 foot tall weeds and small trees with my jeep. Im finding websites for parts already a problem- any help there sure would be appreciated. Id love to send you my pics of the 52- an actual beauty for the price-5 double quarter thru rust spots on the entire truck.

Benton Harbor, MI USA -
great site and really enjoyed and agreed with your thoughts. restoring these old trucks is like preserving a living piece of history.they should-by all means possible-be kept stock. it is my feeling that the ones that are too far gone can be made into hot rods. but what really upsets me is when a guy buys a nicely restored example and tears it apart to make a streetrod. dont get me wrong,a chopped and channeled,nosed vintage f-1 is cool but let it be made from a junker, not a nice original. after all isnt that basically how hot rodding got started? I have a 48 F1 6 cyl with 40,000 mi.and a 52 open cab firetruck with 6,000 miles. by the way im looking for front 1/4 fenders for the f-1 and have parts to sell or trade. thanks for a great web site and good luck with your panel project...Frank S

just curzzin through. looking for ideas even though i have an idea of how i want to hot rod my 49 pu. i saw an old school hotrod like it in 1970 that put an image into my mind. ill go one step more and probably shop it and lower the bed heigth and take off the rear fenders and put a wide type of trailer fender and shorten the bed and probably drop everything down about 4-6 inches. if you run accross any pu that is kinda like this could you please shoot me a pic thanks Larry

We were blessed with a 1949 f-2 pickup that was given to me from my uncle after he recently passed away. My Uncle had owned the truck since 1960's. This was the first truck I learned to drive a manual transmission. I was 16 and boy was I surprised to learn that the gears weren't synchronized. When I met my husband six years later he was a big ford man himself and he was always helping my uncle with any mechanical problems he had (I guess I was lucky to have married a machanic and have my family fall in love with him. We would like to fix up the old beast and give it to our kids. It still has all the oringinal runnig gear but not running for it has sit for a long time. I'm so glad my uncle didn't sell this truck as there was a lot of people who kept wanting to buy it from him. We hope you the best with your truck too. Wayne & Judy

We have a 49 Ford truck that we would like to sell. Needs restoration. I know that the original motor is in great shape, the body is fair. Where do you think we should advertise? How do we establish a value?
Alan Johnson <>
Solon, OH USA -
Maybe one of our visitors will be interested but, you should check out my link page and post on the sites I have listed. They get a lot of traffice from Ford truck enthusiasts.

As for value, that's kind of hard to establish.   Start at a price you are comfortable with and if it doesn't sale then you know you are too high. It's easier to lower the price than to raise it. Just my opinion--Web Master
