How is everyone doing? I recently purchased a 1968 Ford f-250. I've always liked old ford trucks and this is my first time owning one. I started a little business buying and selling vintage cars and trucks.
Getting right to it ... There are a few things I'm unsure about .. first of all, it has a flareside long bed which I thought was very cool and unusual. I thought this was the original bed however, my mechanic thinks it from a 58 Ford. I'm no expert, but based on my research, I feel he's wrong. I believe that the flareside (long) was just not widely produced... I'm I wrong on this?
Does Anyone know how I can confirm this? If my assumption is correct, I'm trying to figure out a good selling price for this truck? I've looked on Ebay but there are no F 250's with a Flareside long bed.I was surprised how very little rust the truck has, even my tow truck guy who restores was impressed. It looks to be a 290 V8 with a 4 barrel. It currently does not run, but everything is there. I had a mechanic look it over and he give me a list of what it'll take to get her running.
I saw some companies selling re-manufactured flareside beds for over 2k! I'm I wrong on this? . Is the long bed just as desirable as the short? The bed seems to only have one major rust spot on the fender.
