Will they fit?

I have to goto the West Coast to pick up two F100 short bed trucks. My question is can I get both picks on one 20' car hauler? I know it will be tight, but I think they will fit. Any and all input welcome.

Just a guess, but I would say nope.

I think it will be close. The good thing is the second truck can have the bed hanging off the back. As long as both axles fit on I think it will be ok with the Overhang. Most likely it will not fit knowing my luck.

Does anyone know the total length of a short bed 1959 F100?

A short box wheel base is 110 inches. I just went out and measured the overall of my '60 shortbox and it is aprox. 188". Good luck!

How is that possible? A short bed pickup will fit on a 6x12 Uhaul Auto Transport with almost zero overhang. That would be 144". Yours is a lot longer. That makes no sense.

So you were expecting someone to tell you a number under 144"? After reading your post I put my coat and boots on and went out to the barn and measured my truck twice to be sure. Maybe I can't see, that has happened before. With the wheel base being 110", which is measured center of axel to center of axel, with only adding the additional width of the wheels and tires you will be over 140". That is not counting any of the body hanging in front of the front wheels or behind the back wheels.

I hope they fit for you!

Haha that was pretty funny. I don't think there is a chance they'll fit. Haha

No chance, none. Get a bigger trailer.
I am going after 2 shortbeds Saturday with a 27 foot trailer and fully plan to pull one bed and piggyback one truck up onto the other one to make them fit. And it will still be tight with a little rear overhang.
