I bought a 50 F-1 long distance (300 miles). I paid about $500 too much but
it was the truck I was looking for in descent condition. I didn't mind
paying the extra since they don't make em anymore. What I did before I went
up was to ask for numbers from the truck tags, a faxed copy of the title,
and a video showing all possible areas of the truck. This worked well and
gave a real good picture of the condition. I sent the person $5.00 to do all
this and he did a good job. Of course when I got there I found a few things
that couldn't be seen on the video but they weren't major things and since
I'll be doing a complete restoration some little things (small dings, wrong
steering wheel, etc) aren't too bad to deal with. One thing though, if you
do buy one long distance make sure you remove any loose chrome, mirrors, etc
that might come loose and fall off on your way home. These are some of the
more costly and hard to locate items. Good luck.

In another subject, Can somebody tell me what are the most important things to
consider when buying a truck long distance? I know that the best way is to go
up there and see it before you buy it, however if the vehicle is several
hundred miles away, one needs to be absolutely sure that that is the vehicle
you want and need before you travel to see it. Sometimes it isn't cost
effective to even do that. So, any advice?

Joe, i think you are smart to think like this. if it is that far away you
should request many good photos or a video tape is preferable. most people
at least know someone with a camera. if they want to sell they will get what
you request. if they don't, i would blow it off and look somewhere else. old
ford trucks are not rare and many are still used on a daily basis. this is a
testament to the durability. you should also rethink about buying something
that is so far away. if going to look at it is a burden, bringing it home
will be more of a burden. trucks are like buses. if you miss this one, don't
worry. there will be another that comes buy in a few minutes. plus the one
that got away always makes a good b.s. story when yur talkin trucks.

Subject: Some questions on a 50 F-1

Hi List. Got this email as quoted below a few days ago from Cody in PA.
Anyone down that way have any suggestions for him? Please email any
helpful suggestions to him at: Lightbg aol.com

My suggestion to Cody would be to go for it Cody. The more F-1s we have on
the road, the better! And there are lots of places you can get original
parts for the F-1s. Start with a visit to Ford Truck Enthusiast's Page at:
http://www.ford-trucks.com/

Thanks gang!
