Tennessee Cab lands in Canada

I bought the cab off ebay for $150 from a very nice gentleman from Maryland who drove it to New Milford, PA for me. Its a big truck cab but is in great condition as shown...I have filled a few holes with the welder and now using epoxy putty to seal the seams...I have a decent cab but this was such a great deal. ..I am doing KBS rust seal on firewall and floor top and bottom...saved me about 6 weeks of body work with cowls and cab corners in tact requiring no work...amazing

To be honest I wish I had been that smart! I just had no idea how much work was involved in fixing the cab - It was truly horrendous work - I had the cab corners & Cab floor from hell. You made a great decision & you got a fantastic deal!! (Now got get the doors from that guy).

Most of my searches have been for the 53-56 model years but places like www.classichaulers.com or www.vintageford.com might be able to help you out but I'm sure others with your vintage can steer you in the right direction.
I just checked out the link I gave you on classichaulers that link is no good sorry

What floor???

EMS and Northern Classic Trucks sell the front portion of the floor with the hump in the middle (outlined in red below). Classic Haulers sells the toe kick panels (outlined in pink). No one reproduces the rear floor section (yet) that is after the hump in the middle (outlined in black).

About two months ago I scrapped a 51/52 cab that I couldn't give away (see above). It had a good solid floor in it. I didn't have time to cut it out because the scrap man was coming. I only had time to cut the roof off. I wish I had time to cut the cab in pieces, but I don't have a lot of room to store the large panels at my house.

By the way, any one need a solid roof section?

Hey Mrmach,
You win that's got to be the ugliest floor I've ever seen. I've got a '50 F1 & I replaced the entire floor as well. I believe LMC has them as well as Northern Classics. My floor for comparison - you win. I don't think our floors get quite that nasty down here where there is no salt on the roads.

All I can say is "HOLY SHEET" metal. You're not a welder? Better look into learning or finding a new friend!(welder friend)

That cab floor almost looks like it was in a fire.

Like Ilya, I've cut up what some people would call perfectly good cabs, just because there's so many of them laying around here, and the limited space to keep such things. It's a shame, and as much as we'd like to, you just can't save everything.

Surely in Texas, there's bound to be a much nicer cab available that would save you a couple hundred hours of welding and patchwork, for less then the cost of patch panels. I have one really nice cab still, if you want to make a road trip north. ;-)
