Weekend score $1500 tailgate

The boy went on another surfarier Sat. For a perfect 50 F2 tailgate for
$1500. The gate comes with a complete F2 (V8 in boxes) cab straight and
no rust, and a not bad long bed even got wood. Tailgate also come with
a very straight F6 Dumptruck. Very nice cab & dump body but nose is
a little bashed. V8 engine compartment absoulutly orig perfect all in place
even radiator super mint. Has new battery I charged it buts still dead.
Get this a new cross over exhaust with new muffler. Perfect air cleaner
fan shroud. even got brand new cap points wires plugs. Now the apart
V8 Mic'd out to std bore and I cant see any cracks= valve chamber pretty
clean no cyl ridge cant wobble pistons. So I think the kid spent more on
fuel to get these 2 trucks and trailers than the purchase. Another bonus
is I also got a load of snow ta boot they came awhay up north..
Today Dec 1 the dump truck will run (if it kills me)

I think you guys just scored. A bit pricey on the tailgate but the spare parts make up for it. Where are the pic's?

Congrats, it sounds like a real deal for $1,500. I love your collection, and am looking forward to seeing your latest find.

Thanks problem is my Pc took a dump this is a new one unfreindly, I've done
every thing to install my camara. (CD Install) says finish/done. OK so where
is it in this junk. (old PC soon as I plug in camara it went ding ding and a
screen came up. I search for printer/camara and find nothing printer dont
work either. Idea I'll have the kid take pics & email em to me.

UP date as I said on the F6= Napa new comm 6vt batt, squirt oil in cylinders
disconect fuel line put boat gas tank on fender. Check spark OK> try it
almost= ah chain & tow with loader=20 feet whalla. Made short > It charges,
oil press right up there, even temp gauge works. Oh yea, its a quiet one
just hear the fan--and It dumps too cant resist, hauled couple loads of
gravel dumps at idle. The kicker, both heads say Mercury? It could be
cause it sounds kind of beefy to me. Of course no brakes, but E brake works.
I shall try for pics today. And this does not have widow makers (hard to beleive)

Sam, Great purchase(s)! Are you going to paint the dump truck green to match the rest of your fleet?

Hi abe no, the dump F6 cabs going on the 51 F2 that came with it. Then we
removed the utility body from our F6 and put that on a 97 4x4 F350 diesel.
So this (its like 4yard) will be going on the good F6 we bought new. Also
plan to swap rear 2sp axle. my good F6 been howling for over 50ys. The
motor as I said is one of them whisper quiet ones, Still dont know if it is
a real Mercury? I just may clean and paint and put it in my bedroom (for now)
Gotta be a senior crisis but the search is on for a 337? Then my kids also got
a crisis. He's got 9 of these so called monkeys. He or Me needs a 1955 only
one we dont have (has to be atleast) F800 F900 preferred. and we still
have these trucks. Ill get some pics fer ya
