Welcome aboard! I've got a '50 F1 rod truck in the works(technically in pieces) and a daily driver restored '78 F150. I'm just north of Tulsa. I was on ebay today and saw a nice '48 F1 project truck started and in pieces in Kansas. If you keep yer eyes peeled you'll find lots of good project trucks in this state.

Is that the truck you are looking at getting? Is the brown rust or primer? Looks like someone chopped the top. Hope it's done right, otherwise you may have some big problems getting the front and back glass in. What front bumper did they bondo onto it? Got more (daylight) pics?

hmmm....if you're still trying to decide on purchasing that truck you may want to take someone that knows about these F1 trucks with you to check it out. Rob(hotrod48) might be close to your location? What are the specs on the F1? What was modified/changed/added/removed? What engine, trans, rear come with it, etc?

It would be a pretty good drive out there (Too far for me). To me, it appears that there is a good chunk of metal work left do for the cab. Not sure on the suspension swap, as far as welds, gussets, etc. It does appear that they chose a vehicle with the proper track width. The bumper appears to be from possibly a truck that is somewhat late model. To me, $1300 seems a little steep. I'm a tight wad and paid less that for my truck and drove it home (It was basically stock though). I would probably pass on it, but it's too hard to tell from pictures and in the end it's up to you.

this isnt far from running, just needs the tranny linkage hooked up and the normal stuff like oil changed and probably ingnition. Umm I asked about it some more to. Yes its a choptop 4inches. The engines a 350 from a buick along with the tranny and the rear end not sure what size. Its a 3 speed tranny. Umm it has disc brakes from a buick to. He syas the fram is clipped, dont know what that means but he said the middle is from a buick and the rear and front are both the original unless I misunderstood. I cant really find any other project around my town but i have time before i purchase this so ill keep an eye out for something better

If it has been sitting for 8 years like you said in your other post, it will more than likely take much more than expected to get it going. The tranny should be the BOP TH 350, not sure on the rear end other than 10 bolt maybe. Frame clip is where the front suspension (Or rear suspension) from one vehicle is welded (Grafted) to another. It is much more in depth and technical than that, but that is about the easiest way of describing it on a computer. The middle should be the original frame while the front and rear clips (suspensions) should be from the Buick (If that is what the suspension is from. I'm not sure what Buick could have been used without doing some research). There should be plenty of projects out that way, or I would think so.

Brian, you think you are funny don't you?.........yankee. J/K

maybe if i go in the country more ill find something. I found a 66 that said for sale and the interior was nice but the ladt said it isnt for sale. Everytime I pass an old truck i turn around and go back and see if its for sale or not. Ill keep looking though, im pretty much into everything so im sure ill find something soon.

IMHO that sounds like a bit too much for a project truck that may or may not be put together properly. That's a lot of hacking and modifying to that little truck. If it were me, I'd only use Ford parts in my classic Ford truck. But that's just me. It just wouldn't feel right to have a heavly hacked Ford truck running Buick parts in it. This guy may have grafted that front clip on ok, but I've never heard of a Buick front clip added to this series of truck before? I would keep looking. There are a lot of classic trucks out here in Oklahoma. Especially North of Tulsa. In fact there's a lot of classic cars for sale out here too. If I had time and money there's a nice 40 something car sitting in the front yard of a house I drive by a couple times a week.
