Seems like they are generally about $2000 thru $3500 for average circulated
beasts like that. It's great if you can use it. 56 is a popular year. It
seems most folks would rather get the short wheel base models if it's just
for fun. I recently sold a midwest 53 F-6 with never any rust and a new 14'
stake bed w/twin cylinder dump hoist for $3500. They are around. I have
bought a couple sight unseen via the net and have had great luck. e-mail me
off-line if you want to.

Subject: Gas Gauge

Ray, the intermittent signal you are seeing is the action of the gauge
regulator. Did you by chance connect the power lead for the gauge to the
original gauge power lead?

I installed auto-meter guages in my '54. They require that the battery lead
be connected to the 12v supply, not the regulated gauge supply.

I also had a similar problem with the sending unit. It worked ok until I
added several gallons of fuel. Then it stuck at empty. This is an
in-the-tank fuel pump and sending unit deal, and I cringed to think about
having to pull it all out again. So I gragged the side of the cab and
rocked the truck will all my strength (not much), and the gauge started
working, and still is!

Not much value in Big trucks unless you really want one. I started
playing with them because they were generally in better shape from
little use and being up higher out of road salt, I guess. Farmer's
can really cobble up vehicles to get that "one last use" out of them.
That seems way high on price, unless it is damn near cherry.
These trucks have low miles sometimes, only because they were
used twice a year, planting and harvest. Mice and setting around
can take their tole. I would think 1500.oo or maybe 2000.oo if
really nice would be MY limit. It depends on how hard you want it.
Remember theirs not much of a market demand out their if you
don't want it in future. Just My thoughts.

Hello,.
I'm looking for a 1978 or 1979 Ford Pickup Auto TILT steering column
to go in my '56. One of the first with tilt and the last with key on the
dash. Anyone got one hanging in the garage! Maybe your favorite bone
yard. An info appreciated!
Thanks,
Don
