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.

Tee Hee!!!

Hmmm, San Diego?? isn't that where our other duplicitous person resided?

Based on Bill's comment, I've asked the seller to provide a pic of the glove box rating plate. It also looks like the seller put the air cleaner from the Ford on the Dodge he also has listed. Hummm. Stay tuned to CSI - FTE

Don't expect too much from that. With all due respect, Bill is mistaken on a couple counts here. He's looking at the 51 and later rating plate. This truck is a 50, and they didn't have the detail Bill mentions. The number stamped on the patent plate on the cowl is complete, although I'll agree with Ross from page 1 it appears possibly tampered with. Looking at the pic on ebay, it looks like a C (F1) scribed over with an awl to look like a
D (F2). It says the truck was a 6 cylinder F2, built in Richmond CA. With a serial number that high, it's a 1950 model.

Here's a pic of an early glove box tag...(thanks Joe ;o)

If the bed was shortened could that be why the rear wheels are so far from centered in the rear fender? If you think this stuff is bad with an F1 pickup you should see the stuff people do with SS chevelles. Not even build sheets are a guarantee of pedigree anymore.

I looked at the pictures of the bed the seller has posted on the Photobucket page and couldn't see any distortions where it would have been cut apart and rewelded. That's the only way I see it could have been done. Looks like someone took a section from in front and behind the fenders out. If someone did it sure looks like a good job, especially considering all of the other problems with this "restoration".
The box looks to be an F-2 box because of the center pockets, which have a corresponding stamping inside the box, and the deep wheel tubs. The F-1 boxes don't have a center pocket and the wheel tubs barely protrude into the box.

Maybe we shouldn't criticize this truck too much, I'd hate to be accused of promoting hate toward the chiseler, I mean, misguided person trying to sell this, a, build.

Alohadude says that there isn't a plate on the glove box. Yet another interesting tidbit to ponder. The bidding remains far from $40k.

Based on what I have seen happen at a friends house I dont think that Pergo bed floor is going to last long once it gets wet!
Looks like a typical small dealer sell, lots of hype and not much accuracy. Looking for someone who doesnt have the skills to build one but would love to own one, pleny of people out there like that. People forget not everyone can restore a car or truck, I have family members that do more damage trying to fix things.

Click on his other items for sell and you'll find the Dodge truck, in about the same condition, sloppy workmanship and missing parts.

There's been critiques about numerous eBay trucks that aren't quite up to a professional restoration standard. Usually those trucks had a few parts that weren't painted the correct color or maybe had a non-stock accessory but not one I have seen I wouldn't want to have parked in my garage. Most only needed a mild tweaking to make them nice. Even in their present condition they were nicer than any of my trucks but this truck would need a lot of work to make nice again. The fact that he thinks these trucks are worth $40K is only adding insult to injury. I feel sorry for anyone who might end up buying this wreck. Unless they can get it for under $10K they are going to have to put a whole of work and parts into it to make it a $20K truck.

As mentioned in a previous post in this thread, even a fully to the numbers F-2 isn't going to be worth more than $20K, that's if there's no work to be done to it to make is show quality. If it was an F-1 I would still stay it's going to take a bunch of money to make it nice. This is a daily driver and weekend cruiser, at best.

I checked out his other listing, the blue Dodge. If anything its even sloppier than the Ford. Overspray all over the tires, heater box, shifter, etc.
I hate when these guys state that they do a "frame off" or :ground up" restoration and then they ahve stupid stuff like the jicky wood flooring in the beds, or chrome bumpers, or other non standard items.

Its also amazing that both of these truck are "true barn finds" with identical stories and despcriptions. This seller is a joke preying on the unsuspecting. Hopefully, anyone truly interested in these trucks will take a close look at them. I doubt very much that either of them get anywhere near $40K. I'm going to add them to my watch list just for giggles

Bobby

Like I said, I know very little about these trucks. I'm too big (6-5, 250) to fit in the cab, so have never owned or even sat in one.

The sample pic I posted of the Rating Plate is from the 1948/56 truck catalog, final printing 1964.

I'm sorry the info I posted inre to the Rating Plate is wrong, but it's all I have to go by. I won't make this mistake again.

"A fool and his money are soon parted." There are a lot of fools in the old car hobby.

In 2006, I sold a mostly original 1968 Galaxie XL 390/C6 w/86K on the clock on ebay. I had bought several years previous from the original owner, the MIL of the Ford Dealer in Corning CA

The guy that bought it was an investment broker in Rancho Cucamonga, said he was going to add it his "Muscle Car" collection.

He told me what cars he owned: 1965 Falcon H/T 200 I-6, 1967 Fairlane Ranchero 289, 1969 Torino F/B 302, 1965 Corvair, 1965 Chrysler Newport.

He knew NOTHING about the cars he owned as not one of these nor the Galaxie is a Muscle Car.

The term originally was coined by Motor Trend in the mid 1960's, refers to a mid-sized car with the large V8 of a full sized car. How many Corvairs came with any V8?

Yep, a Corvair is definitely not a muscle car. And they came with a 6 cylander. The later Monza Spyders were still a 6 i think but had a turbo... i think. And they first came out in 1960 long before the term was coined. And a Falcon is not one either!

Go figure!
The truck didn't sell for the 40K. It looks like bidding stalled around $8600 and the guy relisted it. The Dodge truck he has listed is in the same boat.
Here's the new listings.

Ford: Ford Other Pickups F 2 | eBay

Dodge: Dodge Other Pickups LX | eBay

The guys should have took the money...LOL

Smells of a frequent eBay selling ploy. Get a bunch of bidders' contact info, with a Reserve price that's ridiculous. Then after the item fails to meet Reserve, contact them off-eBay and offer to sell cheaper -- with no eBay protections, no PayPal fees, etc.
