With no load I wouldn't be afraid to drive it on just the fronts.

I'm wondering if I could make some free time for a road trip this weekend. I could borrow my buddies motor cycle, drive it there, load the bike on the back and DRIVE that rig home!

There I go thinking again...... I have to stop it gets me into trouble

Put a brass or copper rivet in the rear line at the master. That blocks off both back
brakes. Than throw on a fuel pump and drive her home. Better than smashing a brake line to block it off.
Most of these ads saying it just needs a pump or a carb or dizzy cap
may be a way to cover up more serious problems with the engine.
If was me I would not give him a dime until the new pump was on and I was convinced it had no
other problems. But ya could gravity feed the engine from a jug and better know if
it just needs a pump or more.

Just kidding, But. Prolly pretty rotten I would think.
More pic's are needed for sure. I had a "56 Ford Courier with a build on
camper and the standard Courier that was nothing more than a panel.
Both cool and rare. But the Rust demon got them.

Did a google search and looked at the pic page. Didn't produce much. But one funky looking 56 Caddilac Deville with a truck bed camper melded in.

Wonder what a truck camper looked like in 1956? Back to google!

Who thinks the F500 rear wheel cylinder is the same as an F250 or F350?

No proof right here, but in my experience they are quite a bit larger. Driven a lot of trucks with a 6 gallon outboard motor tank sitting up on a crate on the flatbed. They have a lot going for them. No rotten gas and rust from the truck's tank, instant priming with the squeeze ball, and even a gas gauge. I'm using my '58 f600 with one in one of the side compartments, but I have a working fuel pump. C'mon, it's Friday! That gives you the weekend to get this valuable piece of history home......Don't forget the camera. Many of us are counting on you,

No one who knows better. F-250 and 350 cylinders are different from each other. F-500 and 600 use a totally different brake design that has two wheel cylinders on each side.

pweng1 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Interchange

check the base number on wheel cyl. to compare casings and size. They used those casings/housings on later years that may be able to still buy but i doubt anything too recent.

Finally got a few texts back from the seller. He found that Dennis Carpenter sells some wheel cylinders. He said he would drop the price $50 for the tow home. I was going to offer $2000 and try to hold out for at least $2500. And that's if there's no surprizes concerning sheet metal, floorboards, cab corners. But now I've found a Ranchero much more local for $1700. 351C or M. I think its a 73. Doesn't look bad.

Latest: he's telling me now there's a towing company in Jackson that will tow it here for $75 (can't get a tow across Memphis for that) and he'll drop the price $100. I was looking to offer $2000 and drive it off.

Looks and sounds like a heck of a great buy for someone
needing a truck like that. If true it needs very little to be
put to work. Damn nice barn find for sure. And sounds like
they have kept it up or just went through it for resale.
