Good evening, Ive posted my trucks info in another thread 1948-1960: 1949/1950 VIN # Cut off but I wanted to introduce myself properly.
My name is Saul, Im 33 yo from Pasadena TX and work in Maritime Logistics.
I am not a really good mechanic per say, Im not a welder but I love classic cars and trucks. I started looking for a cab to build me a ratrod but I found a whole truck instead as you can see from the pics I have a long long way to go but it would be a dream come true to drive this 1949 ford f1 and pass it on to one of my children. The cab floor is completaly gone, the engine doesnt turn but i hope to get that fix. Needless to say I will be asking a lot of questions. (pics taken about 6 months before i actually got the truck)

Reason: trying to fix pics
Well, from one newbe to another Welcome to the forum!
I joined not that long ago and already I have put to use some of the tips I found here.
The folks on this site are a bunch of great folks and always seem to come through with an answer or two!
My toy is in a bit rougher shape than yours, the cab got a crunch in the roof but I have most of it tapped out but not smoothed. It is a lot of work but when you look at what you've put into it, you get (at least I get ) a reall feeling of accomplishment.
welcome !!! You came to the best site on the net to learn about these old trucks. Alot of smart guy on FTE . I'm not one of them but they helped me build my 51.Looks like you got a nice project too start with. I'M also a mustang guy look at my pics. 67 gt350 fastback shelby clone
It really is in good shape! It's far better than I started with. I'd get it cleaned up and running and start driving it, then decide what to do. A truck that original would be a great candidate for restoration, rather than rodding. Keep active on the forum, all the info you need is here. -Rusty
