I should have added, after '48 the grill trim was an option. But it still would be considered stock. Chrome plating the grill would cost a small fortune and wouldn't be stock and also a lot harder to maintain, IMO.

Any of the reproduction parts dealers.

Mac's Auto, in NY-who I think is a sponsor on FTE
Classic Haulers in IN
Dennis Carpenter-who I think sells to all of the others
You might have a closer dealer in IA, I have two in WI.

Just Google the part number, I think you should get quite a few links.

F2, F3, both eight lug until '53. Try hot rod garage in Minot. They sell a lot of heavy trucks. I bought a great running all original 53 f350 flareside from them about seven years ago. They have a very active web site. The half tons sell right away, but the big stuff seems to sit there a while. Very cool photo by the way, and best of luck in your search.

Look through FTE classifieds, swap meets, eBay, Craigslist. No one that I know is reproducing the F-2 or F-3 emblems.

Have you checked out this CL listing?

1950 ford F3

That was the rusty junker? But he said " sheltered from elements , little rust , everything original "


No wonder he didn't post pictures. I can't figure out why people won't post pictures of items their trying to sell. Almost everyone has a digital camera, if you don't find someone who does. The only legitiment reason is because they have crap.

Just scanned through hotrodgarage. That's how trucks for sale should be photographed. Floor mats out, photos of door bottoms, cab corners all the normal rust areas in close up detail and original paint. No bondo, or any attempt to hide repairs. An amazing 52 cab, tons of old fords, but no '50 f3 at the moment. Bring your camera on your next outing!

Well...your grandfather's taste in airplanes improved over the years...from a Skyhawk to a Debonair...not a bad upgrade!

Good luck on the search. If you scour the threads here, you'll find that many of us think it's a good idea to spend a little more up front for a project vehicle that will take less work to complete. Keep us posted!
