Oh, yeah, about the fan..... was a fan a Ford option? It wasn't for 53-56 trucks. JC Whitney used to sell them and they were plastic blades. I remember some of the old school buses I used to ride had them and some of the old trucks I drove at the lumber yard had them.... But most of them were pointed to the windshield to keep fog off the windshield and you were able to point it to you face for summer time air conditioning.

It has wing windows in pic 24, not the others. No crank handle on passenger side in those without wings, so probably was in progress when pics taken. Stu

Ok - I'm impressed. Remind me to not play cards for money with you.

Mid-Fifty and others sell data plates for 53-56 trucks and they can put whatever data on it.

Can you buy the same for 48-52?

I have a fan like that with soft rubber blades. Yes, they always point at the windshield. The wheels aren't even close to centered in the wheel wells. This is kinda fun playing E-bay police.......

Probably won't meet reserve, then will end up at Barrett Jackson. Where some guy will buy it having done no research and pay even more for it to impress his "niece" who is sitting there next to him. Stu

Alright that made me chuckle. Especially since his niece would likely be a working girl in Vegas.

My 2˘,

Looks like an F-2 box with the wider wheel tubs and the center pockets. I've never seen a short box version. I find two things hard to believe, first that Ford would offer on a limited basis a special bed for the larger pickups, if they did they would have made a decent number of them and we would have seen one by now. Second, I would doubt a new truck buyer back then, especially a person buying a F-2 work truck would have spent the extra money to get a special bed, but I could be wrong.

The thing that really gets me is the guys who want to sell a vehicle that is a "stock frame up factory restoration" with so many blatant non factory parts.

Factory Motorola radio, I see no radio. If this truck has a radio it's not a factory location and a factory antennae is not mounted on the side of the cab in front of the driver's door.

The truck didn't come with a bunch of canvas hooks on the side of the box but it did come with wing windows, I don't see any on this truck.

Air cleaner is from some other type of car or truck.

The wheel set up is completely wrong and would have been 16", not 17"

The description says it has the factory side mount spare, I don't see a spare but it if has one it wouldn't be on the side.

Wrong interior, headliner and seat are not original looking.

Odd ball heater

My favorite part of this "restoration is the tailgate. Looks like they could find a F-2 gate so they "adjusted" the height and width an F-1 gate. IMO, looks like crap. Also look at the dual exhaust, again, not stock.

This truck, IMO, which is just my opinion, is a mess and worth no where $40K, maybe $10K, at most. There's been a lot of work put into this truck but it's not right and it's ridiculous to ask the price. Most of the incorrect parts on this truck could have been found with a little effort. Some of the harder to find pieces should have been found if the seller is advertising it as a restoration and asking the high price. It really gets me when a seller tries to sound like he an expert on something and it's obvious he doesn't have a clue what he is trying to sell. The Dodge on his Photobucket page is probably as much of a sore spot to the Dodge guys as this truck is to us. The one major flaw with the Dodge is there is over spray on the tires, looks like crap, I can only assume there are numerous other flaws.

On my F-2 and all the 4-5 I've owned, the back wheels aren't centered, they look odd, but the front are centered. Check out the picture of mine (top) compared to the eBay mess (bottom).

Ilya's on the job.

I also wanted to add, I like the cobbled together copper vacuum tube. Gads, if you're going to demand a high price for a "restoration" you should at least get a few things correct, especially the easy stuff.

My guess is 114", to match its F-1 frame. Stu

Thanks for the side by side, Bob - that really helps. The wheel base doesn't match up to the Intrepid F2 - and makes the poor tire size choice even more apparent. The box is the real puzzler - it's neither an F1 or F2 - yet it has the side embossing of the year. The mystery remains.

I noticed the taillights are not stock. And that's something they could have gotten from any of the parts houses. And those tailgate chains are driving me batty. Aren't they supposed to be covered in rubber? And aren't those closing bars a weird shape?
