New member 1949 F1

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)

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.
Cheers
Rusty.

MrMach71, will we get to see pix of the 71 Mach?

Long ago and far away, I had a new '75 Mach 1 MII, my youngest owns a '70 fastback project car and I currently drive an '07 Shelby.....'Stangs rock in any form.

First of Welcome to FTE... I'm glad to see another monkey face saved... The radio looks like a 51-52 and a mounting adapter of the 48-50...

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

So how are you progressing? Plans? Keep the flathead / ditch the flathead, etc? More pictures? Inquiring minds want to know!
