That truck is great! Central NY too far from central IL, but not in spirit. If it were close to me I would feel obligated to save it. Any of you guys near it will have to live with a guilty conscience if you let it go to China!

It's kinda, sorta sitting in my back yard, I've driven down to Peoria to pick up my first beat up Buick but I'm afraid I'd get beat up if I went down and got it. If the price is under $1000 I think it's a deal. Hopefully someone here is working on getting it.

So what exactly is the pricetag?!? I've got a very similar '57 Ch*vy truck I use for hauling gravel and dirt and it's a sad, rusty hunk-a-junk. I work on it more than I use it. I'd haul it in to the scrapyard and replace it with that Ford in a heartbeat if the price is right. Peoria isn't that far away from me.

I have agonized over this truck for several days now. Don't know what to do. When I sit here and do the math about me transporting it, time and the WM's, I don't know what to do.

You can nearly pay for it by scraping that C-word truck! But I understand that the planets have to align in matters of this delicate nature!

Here's what I know & correct me if I'm giving out wrong info:

Starts, runs & drives. Good to go. 13-1/2 foot grain box w/removable sides so it could be a flatbed. Tires seem good but it is on the widowmaker rims (thanks Stu for the expert wheel analysis).
Rob - I'm looking at this again and seeing that the truck is probably an F-600. When you first sent me the pics asking about the wheels I assumed that it was an F-350. Am I right that it's actually an F-600?

Makes a big difference because it means the widowmakers are the easily replaced 6 lug x 8.75" bolt pattern instead of the hard to find 6 lug x 7.25" pattern. That should really help it find a new home. Stu

Stu,

If that's the case, what kind of money are we talking about ballpark wise?

Since Rob says the tires look good, you'd be after a set of 6 or 7 lock ring 20s. These were used in big numbers by IHC, Dodge, and others for a lot of years. A really good source would be a military surplus place. I'd be looking for replacements in the price range of $25 to $50 each, but would say too that finding them locally for more money to save on shipping costs makes sense.

If you wanted to go with tubeless 22.5s, I think Kevin Bigwin (in nearby Ohio) has/had a set of them for sale too. But then you're buying new or used 9R22.5" tires which adds a good bit to the cost. Used 22.5" tires are pretty common on Craig's List. Stu

He posted on another thread that the truck has already found a new home. Bummer, too. I was at a sale this weekend and they had a '62 F-750 in similar condition that went for $1750. Yikes! (sigh) I guess the search continues.

Man I hope you're right. But I'm thinking he posted the update either last night or this morning and said the deal fell through.

I'm sitting here thinking about my gooseneck 24 foot 14,000 lb max weight trailer that I never bothered to tag. What is the weight of that truck roughly? I'd say it ain't light. I've got an F-250 SD 6.4 diesel.
