New to site and about to get a 59 couple questions.

Hello all, I am looking to get a 59 in the next couple weeks. Just waiting on the current owner to get all his paperwork in order. I spoke to him over the phone and we came to an agreement on price. He told me the passenger front cab mount will need to be replaced. I am going in partially blind on what I am getting. My thoughts are it will be pretty bad and a lot of works. I am excited though. Next weekend I am supposed to go pick it up with my buddy, he has a trailer we can use to haul it back. Our first question to start the process of truck restoration/customizing is what is the width of the truck. Last thing we need is to show up with one truck and a trailer that wont fit. From what I know the truck is all or mostly original. Here is the description I got in the ad and some pictures. Any help would be very helpful.Once I get the truck I will post more pics and details of the journey.

"Barn find I bought to fix up but bought something to drive now. Body is straight. Has 292 V8 that turns over but have not got running. 3spd on column. Will need brake work & clutch mastercylinder work from sitting."




Thanks

Jason

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).

While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...ghtsafter1.jpg

Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).

When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).

Your pic will be placed in the post.

Hope that helps.

Here's a tutorial Bob put together: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/67...-pictures.html

Don't know the width. Someone that does will be along shortly.

Nice truck. Looks like it might be a custom cab from the interior.

Jason, Welcome to the orphanage! Truck track width about 72 - 74" + or - depending tires and wheels.
Typical rust areas - Below hinges, front cab mounts and lower rear portion of front fenders.
Looks like you have good start.
Good luck in you quest.

Hey Jason, my 60 f-250 is 73" outside the back wheels, with another 3" on either side for the fender widths.

Welcome to FTE! Great looking truck. By a Ford shop manual for it, it will be very helpful!
