1939 Ford Pickup

My daughter has a 1939 Ford 1/2 ton pickup that was her father's. It has been barn stored its entire life, is in excellent condition, minimal rust and wear, and ran the last time it was started several years ago. It has all original parts and paint. What is something like this worth? She has been offered $6000 for it...is this a fair offer? Thanks!

If the paint is in really good shape, just needing a good polish, and it runs well, the figure might be a little low. The minimal rust, is any of it rust through, like making holes, and does the body have any dents? If the paint is saveable and is original it might be of some interest to somebody who really perfers abosolutly factory Ford stuff. Price is a little low to me...might be able to get more if it is in excellent condition like you said.

From what I've seen through the years, Gary (46fordtruck) has the most knowledge on these old trucks than anyone I know but it's in my opinion that you would be doing the rest of us "old truck" owners an injustice by only sharing the photo's of your daughters truck with him alone.

Would appreciate it if you'd create a photo album here on FTE so we can all see what you're talking about. Besides, I personally like looking at the older trucks even if it's for nothing but drooling purposes.

BTW - welcome to FTE.

Thank you for the kind words, Carlene. lazyidh, i agree with Carlene, create a gallery, that way we can all see this truck. It's rare that a very nice unrestored, all original truck comes along. The pictures will help us better help you determine a good value on the truck.

Since my forte is more showing horses than Ford trucks, I haven't been able to post a gallery until now. These pictures were taken while it was still in the barn as the person who took them was unable to drive the truck out into the sunlight. It is full of dust, and the white spots are bird do-do but I think you can otherwise see it is in good condition! Can anyone give me some idea on how much it is worth?

I defer to Gary's opinion, but given the damage to the driver's front and rear fenders and guessing it has the normal bumps and bruises and hasn't run for several years, I'd say the $6,000 offer wasn't an insult.

Might be able to get more for it, but I'd say its in the fair range for both buyer and seller.

It is a nice truck by any standards. Thanks for sharing.

It's a very nice looking truck, in very nice original condition, but it does need a couple things done to it before it would be considered near perfect. The fenders need a little body workd, and the interior needs a good cleaning, but still looks nice. I do like that old Arvin hot water heater mounted inside the cab...I restored one of those for my '46 . 6 grand is a decent price for it...not a bad price for a nice truck needing a little work.
