Another 58

Might add this shortbed to my collection. I need to talk with the owner today and get some better pictures. The truck is 450 miles away but he might bring it half way, to a place I have to deliver a car I sold.
What I do know is it's a 6 banger, engine not stuck, floors rusty, tailgate missing. Has clear title.

Selling a vehicle can leave one with such an empty feeling.... Like you, I try to fill the emptiness by picking up something new on the return trip. Besides, I think somewhere in the Bible it says that 'idle hands are the devil's workshop'.......

The quote, "An idle brain is the devil's workshop," comes from H.G. Bohn's "Handbook of Proverbs", published in 1855. Often, the word "brain" is substituted by the word "mind" and "workshop" is sometimes changed to "playground" in the modern daily use of the expression.

For the record it is not found in The Bible anywhere. I get the message though.

Anyway you want to look at it, there should never be an empty bay in the garage.

Yeah, the 66 Toronado went away so I feel compelled to perpetuate my collection/investments.
A couple months back I bought a 58 and a 60, both long beds. Plans were to get the 60 running for a patined shop truck, do it on the cheap with a drivetrain I already have. The long 58 is a parts truck anyway but does have a pretty solid cab. So now I have a shortbed, might take a wee bit more time on it so I can paint it. No plans yet if the 223 stays or not. I'd like to find a late 90s 4.6 5 speed F-150 for a donor. And also do the Crown Vic front stub, the older version, not the cast aluminum cross member like everyone on here is doing.

Ok, so it was a proverb. That doesn't make it any less true. And all my parking is full, at least for now........

That's a decent looking '58! I love the big front window!

Looks great to me the way it is! Fix the floor and drivetrain and enjoy!

Not tryin to highjack this but do you have anything leftover from the Toro? I am looking for a complete 4 spoke steering wheel.

No chance of that, lol, it's a single car garage with all my tools, welders and everything. I started final assembly on my roadster pickup this week and had to do some serious cleaning to get it in.

Funny, I was seriously thinking of getting rid of MY toro to free up another undercover parking space. When you were asked about a 4 spoked wheel from a toro, I was thinking, what are the chances another guy on here had a golf course tractor? I only know of one other and it's in Idaho and was from the golf course at SunValley. Willowbilly, now you can see why I love your roadster pickup so much........ Currently Im sitting at a campsite next to a river with my laptop out here in the dry Eastern part of the state and trying not to look at the local craigslist. Hmmmm, where's Chewela?

I love that tractor. I have been wanting to build a smaller version, like a garden tractor. Case actually made one in the 60s but they are rare as heck. When I was picking up the 58 and 60 that I have there was an old gambles riding mower with a little bed in the back, never seen another one of those either.
I'll get some pictures up of the roadster pickup when it gets a little farther along.
