the attraction is they are a little harder to find as most were worked to death and scrapped , and they are as said before just kool as hades ! this stuff is why i don't look at any for sale sites any more ..... no cash and i'd be cussing for days if i found something like this ! wish i had my one ton back of the 49 f4 to scratch my big truck itch , but hades i can't even get my 53 done .............

I actually work mine, but admittedly they get used just for local moving and hauling on the island, and some stay here on my 10 acres. These big trucks are quite inexpensive because of the small market and the repair parts such as brake parts are larger and easier for me to see and handle. My primary use is storing lumber on the flatbeds. In our normal course of business we saw large old timbers into boards that we then make into flooring, cabinets, furniture and interior and exterior doors. As the wood comes off the sawmill we sticker it on the deck of one of the flatbeds to air dry for a few weeks, or deliver to a small wood fired kiln a couple miles down the road. Because my trucks all stay in sheds, under cover, the wood does too. When it's time to plane the material, we simply back the truck up to the big planer and have at it. We also use old, unlicensed flatbed trailers for this purpose, but they get parked in the woods with a wood frame and tarp over the load. Oh, and also these larger trucks are just plain cool! One time I counted I have owned something like 43 trucks in my lifetime, but only 2 were 1/2 tons. A '48 back in the 70's and the '47 I bought last spring. I hope this clarifies the matter. The pic is my '47 2 ton taken yesterday. My son has been moving it around the place today and I can hear those dual straight pipes cackle as he backs up the hill to the planer at about 2500 rpm!

When you do find them the cabs are usually in good shape cause they sit higher off the ground than the F-100 and therefore have less rust and fewer dings. and they didn't have the mileage that F-100's have....

I was a little upset so I shot off an email to the ebay seller and he states he didn't have the rig listed on Clist. So I linked it to him and the ebay seller is Phil and I spoke to Bill and I gave Phil , Bills phone number and he is going to check it out, clear as MUD!

Well from craigslist to ebay you have saved $3000. You have to buy it now, you can't pass up $3000. Just think all the other things you can do with that $3000 you just saved. At least that's how all the discount retailers tell me it works.
