Not sure what you are asking. Are you looking for info on this specific truck or on Marmon-Herrington trucks in general?

No, I have one, and have plenty of info. Just wondering if anyone had seen it before it hit ebay.

1952henry is a long time Marmon-Herrington owner and knows his stuff on the breed. He's asking about that specific truck. I don't know specifics about it. Stu

Looks like a clean truck with most of the MH stuff there, right? Wouldn't take much to finish that truck.

The 1/2 (and 3/4 tons up to late 50 or early 51) had single speed transfer cases. They also sported Dana axles as opposed to the Timkens on the 3/4 tons.

This truck is awfully nice, but the missing front stabilizer springs would be a question. Are just the leaves missing and easily replaced, or are the hangers themselves also missing. The pictures don't show that I can tell. These stabilizer springs were used on the LD7-4 half tons and R3-4 single speed 3/4 tons. My '50 and '51 F-3 R3-4s both have them. Stu

I have a 51 F 1 mostly original that I would like to restore into a Marmon Harrington . I don't know if any parts are available to do it or I was thinking size wise the early Bronco would get close for starters and go from there. Thoughts or comments?

I do know that this MH ranger can be bought but not cheap! Click the image to open in full size.

I'd suggest getting to know member jpb222 who has done a great 4x4 conversion on his '51 F-1. Here's his thread describing the conversion.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/71...d-f-1-4x4.html

To do a true M-H conversion on your truck you face the task of finding correct donor parts, specifically the front axle, single speed transfer case, and associated mounting hardware. Very rare, very expensive, and you'd be competing with guys like me who are also looking for these pieces to remedy fractured components on original trucks. Stu
