You're right Joe - the tail gate is a real collection of stuff. The chain covers were aftermarket, as I understand. The closing brackets and the chain itself are not stock for a true F2. Further, the tail gate isn't correct either.

Cody_1948 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
WOW.........

I too like, how they took a F1 tail gate, and «fixed» the bed sides to work with the tail gate, The more i look at the photos, more im thinking the bed was cut down, If it was an F1 box, on an F2, the tail gate would fit like it should, the box looks short to me tho....

Not only are the gate chains incorrect, but they're attached wrong. The chains are supposed to be attached to the bed sides, not the gate. The hook at the end of the chains hook into loops on the side of the gate.

The big loop on the chains had to be made longer so it could reach the too small tailgate.

So, what they did was take a probable nice barn find and ruin it.

The tailgate and chains appear to be '51-'52, under the roll.

It's the starter pedal.
1947/55 Chevy/GMC "Advance Design" has a similar starter pedal, but it's located to the right and just above the gas pedal.

All these pics and not one of the Rating Plate (see 1948/56 truck catalog sample below).

If this truck was a Domestic Special Order, it would have 4 numbers stamped above D.S.O.

So, why did the seller omit one of the most important pics? Was the plate missing, or did the seller omit it...on purpose?

IMO, on purpose...because it also lists the VIN (serial number), wheelbase and other pertinent info. The posted VIN is also suspect, no 5th digit assembly plant code letter, has a '3' there instead.

Ford pickups (Flaresides) used pine bed wood, it came from forests in northern MI that Henry acquired in the 19teens.

And...the wood was painted body color originally. 1953/79's have metal dividers, dunno if 1948/52's have them or not...and I don't have the 1944/52 Body Parts Catalog.

going thru the cobwebs in my mind, thats a accesory vacuum pump, its in
the parts book, and just about all school buses had them. I know, when
I went to school the wipers never stopped going up hills cause they had
the pump.

I'm with CB on this, what is the point of purchasing this thing at way over market value? Where is the interest/fun in it? I think this truck looks terrible, and the issues and mistakes are way too many. If this were a "true one owner barn find" and was in like new condition, would an F2 fetch that kind of money (40k) in the first place? I guess for me, if all looked right and the price didn't knock me back on my heels then the small print at the end of the listing would. That is some fine attitude. I think perhaps this individual is dishonest, and not a stand up guy. He'll sell it, but I wish he'd find another scam and leave old Ford trucks alone.

I Googled the phone number in the ad. This is what I found.

http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Mark-M...oMarco-1075580

Individual has reports on multiple sites for Real Estate and Ebay fraud. Has worked under the aliases of: The Mix Residences, www.themixresidences.com, aloha dude, alohadude03, Darius Malenkia, Mark Malekia and others. He is arrogant and pushy but obviously uneducated as his spelling and grammar is quite poor. He may claim to be a retired Civil Engineer but is unable to answer ANY question about the trade. He will refuse to supply any ID for a transaction and will act appalled that I you ask him to.
He has perpetrated sale an rental Real Estate scams (deposits wothout delivery of property) and most recently tried to pull an auto auction scam (asking for partial and full payment of auction vehicle that he doesnt own) on me at Ebay. I have FOUND remnants off him on Craigslist as well. He will retaliate with childish actions of fake Craigslist postings and other like events. Stay clear of this sad little individual, he apparently has nothing but time to perpetrate scams and attempt retaliation for those that discover his ruse
stay away from this one.

More wrong with it than right. Go to all that trouble/expense & not fix the extra holes in the dash? Tail lights, overspray, bed, vent windows, motor color for starters. Cost another $5000 to get her right!

What's that saying again, something about a 10' pole.....

It also looks like the rear part of the rear fender is lower than it should be (or perhaps the front part is higher than stock). Whatever the cause, it is apparent that the line in the fender is not as close to horizontal as it might should be.

So now I'm putting the fan thing together.... Aimed at the 'nieces' skirt to blow it back Marilyn Monroe style on the way home from the Barret Jackson. This guy's a real slick salesman! Oh, and I have lots of meadow green paint remaining on my original yellow pine bed wood in my flareside, just to add to Bill's statement. No oak, no varnish, no home depot veneered flooring.
