What color is this truck?
I know the guy who restored would of used a stock ford color.
No, it's not a stock color. Stock in '52 would have been Vermilion Red, Glen Mist (light) Green, Sheridan (dark) Blue, Meadow (medium) Green, Woodsmoke Gray, Sandpiper Tan, or Raven Black. But there was also the option for Primer which allowed a truck to be painted by the buyer or dealer for a fleet purchase or other reason. So the yellow might be original to the truck, likely for a fleet reason. Stu
Edit - here's the pic I took of it in Rod's museum. Stu
Don't know on either question. The yellow is very bright, to me more so than would have been a shade found during that era. But could have been used by a utility, municipal fleet, or similar I guess. Don't know if any have been sold yet. Stu
