Looking for an old tow truck.

Hey all, it's been awhile. I'm on the hunt for an old Ford wrecker. Pretty much anything '79 or older, F2s, F3s, F4s, F250s, F350s etc . Looking for project level trucks. I'm not rich so cheap is the price range. I've been combing Craigslist with a few that might be candidates. Figured id try on here. Thanks.

I have a 77 F350 that is my welding truck. I have been thinking about upgrading just havent fount the right truck to buy just yet. I think I would have to sell it as a cab and chassis. I will be home next month around the 20th

Found one!!

Picked up a 54 F500 for $1400...

Needs a different motor and a few other things, but all in all it's a solid truck!!








Even has the original keys, *****, and door handles!! Both doors open and close like butter
