Several data points for you:

Look at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://world.std.com/~tjt/35Pickup.html. The truck we didn't buy
(grey and rust in the pictures) had an asking price of around $3000
(probably could have got it for $2500). The frame looked good; the engine
was '39 or later (had 59AB on marked on the heads which may mean even
later) and had been recently rebuilt along with the transmission; chassis
had been converted to hydraulic brakes; fenders were shot although they may
have been repairable with a lot of TLC (fiberglass fenders are available
for about $200 each. I'm not aware of reproduction metal fenders for
these). The floor of the bed was completely gone and the sides and tailgate
were in rough shape, but could perhaps be repaired for less than the cost
of a new bed (readily available: just add $3000 or so and stir). The hood
was rough (but again, reproduction hoods are available). The cab was OK but
a bit rough at the bottom and was missing the rear floor pan and part of
the dash. Some parts (like the steering box, glass for the windows,
windshield frame) were missing.

The truck we did buy had been mostly restored except for lights, gauges and
interior. Recently rebuilt engine and transmission. The engine is a '37 or
'38 with cast iron heads. Front fenders are metal; rear are fiberglass. The
firewall looks like it has been replaced. There's a much smaller list of
missing parts, all of which we have a lead on obtaining (or modern
replacements such as gauges). The paint looks good in the photos on the web
page, but up close you can see pitting (should have used some body filler
before painting). Asking price was $8500.

No picture, but there was an ad for a basically unmolested '35 pickup in
West Virginia, asking price $10,000. I can't find the ad again, but try
e-mailing Walter ullom at mailto:gizzer juno.com.

I also remember seeing a '36 Pickup advertised in Kansas somewhere. The
body looked complete in the gif image, but as usual, I can't find the page
again. I think the asking price was around $6000.

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.antiquecar.com/ftruck.html has numerous trucks advertised.

Low end prices seem to be $500 to $1000. Fully restored range up to the
mid-teens (and higher, I'm sure).

Bernie,
You may know of the place already, but there is a group in Missoula Montana
that deals in the oldies. They usually have several of the mid 30's
vintage Fords. Don't know if they have a web site. If you get the truck I
have a motor that I think is a 36 or so here in Texas.

Roger Meier

It all depends what YOU think its worth. I've never had the chance
to come across something that old. My first was a 61 $900.00 took it
home(I actually drove it) very solid, new motor. My current is a 54,
$1000.00 + an old J.D. tractor. towed this one home, but has alot of
potential, all orignal sat in a barn for 20 yrs.

Look it over, under and then do it again! I would pay more for something
untouched, rather than someones cobble job. I know certain parts are very
hard to find for my 54, let alone a truck thats all most 20 years older.

Bottom line. If you want it buy it. Start Low.

Hi:

There are a couple places here in Snohomish that have some old stuff FS. A
new place-Classic Car World- has quite a bit, from basket cases, to fully
restored cars and trucks. They have a 1940 3/4 ton Ford P/U, very rare,
straight body, no engine or tranny, and rusted out cab floor forr about 1100
bucks. A little high, I thought, but a neat looking truck. They had a mid
thrities Ford, but I think it is gone, but I will check asap, probably Friday.

It is a cool place to browse, anyway.

Let me know if you need more info.
