Lets see those pictures of the F2 and F3 Trucks

I'm currently working on a 51 F3 pickup and have been debating pretty hard about chopping and lowering or lifting and making 4x4. I can find pictures of F1 trucks lifted and lowered but the F2 and F3 trucks are a little harder to get a side by side view of. So if you would I'd appreciate any pictures of yours or someone elses f2/f3 truck posted.

Thanks

Search google images for '1951 Ford truck'. You'll come up with many pictures of all shapes and levels of stock to modified.

First, welcome to the group. Glad to have another F-2/3 being saved. I agree with Wayne that Google Images will give you a wide variety of pics. But I'll offer these to give you a start on the lifted look since I'm not much into the slammed look myself. These are all F-2 or F-3 Marmon-Herrington 4x4s that you might or might not find in your Google search. The last pic below is one that our friend Bob Jones modified for me to see how I might want mine to look when done. Stu

It's not a 51/52 but here's a nice 49 F-3 (actually an F-68) I spotted at the NSRA Street Rod Nationals Northeast in Burlington, Vermont last year...

Mostly a 1950 F2 (drivetrain, cab and frame). I think Dr. Frankenstein was a PO. I'm just getting started fixing things . . .

Some of the one tons I own or have owned. Stu, you are killing me with those M-H's. The only thing that gets 'slammed' on my trucks is the doors, and occasionally the hood........

I'm jealous, GB. I've alway had a liking for the 3/4 and 1 tons. Probably why I sought out my 52 F3 M-H.

The 38 is the same truck, before and after. I traded a gun cabinet for it back in '92 and drove it out of the woods. I narrowed a '47 tonner box and mated two running boards to make the long version I needed. First year of the tonner, last year of mechanical brakes. Factory 4:11 gears with those 34" tires, do the math. It flew (on the flats) daily driver for 10 years. Paid less than 700.00 a piece for these trucks. The '59 is the one I just put the cummins in.....Most folks want the 1/2 ton..........Thanks for the nice comments GB
