He was a mechanic for years and worked for a Ford dealership or something, and his take is that its military. Military?!?
Either way we should know for sure by next week.
F13. I doubt it's military, because it's an upscale truck. Since when does the miltary buy a truck like that? Wasn't it built in CA early in production? I still think it was a one off for some Ford Big Wig.

I have the (film) slides, nothing listed there.

I will say one thing- if it's got the FTE gurus stumped, there's either something very special about this truck, or this is a very good, but disappointing joke.

So what's happening with the research on this truck? Did Ford drop the ball again? Or have they sent you anyting conclusive? Got my curiosity aroused now

I still think it is basically an abnormal suspension difference.

Whoops. Sorry I haven't responded in a while. My email program has been tossing these replies in the 'junk' folder so I had assumed interest had just died off. At any rate, maybe interest has died off... at Ford anyway. Response from Big Blue has been non-existent. After such a promising start when I was told it would just be a few days 'till the 'research department' gets back to me, I haven't heard anything. I called back and spoke to the same woman who helped me the first time and she said she'd get right on it... still nothing.
So I'm still trying, but I'm beginning to wonder if this is just a mystery that'll go unsolved.

I'm thinking like NumberDummy. If Bill can't find info on it than that is very surprising.

Or maybe they do, and they don't want you to know the reason. If the truck is authentic, than definately a rare truck. I just wonder, why still try to make it an F150 with F250 suspension? Just say its an F250. Makes you wonder though.

Ford Motor Company won't be of much help, the idiots who run things there of an historical nature threw away records pertaining to some of the 1960's cars..like how many 406's and 427's were made by individual VIN...something that would be very interesting to know. Someone also bought all the records from Ford for certain years of Galaxies and now sells the information to those who want it. The guy, I believe is in AZ.

Try contacting the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village for the info..they have extensive historical records on Fords of all years.

Since the truck does have a Vehicle Identification Number, I still believe this was custom made for a Ford Executive. It's just the records are lost...so far. If Henry Ford II (aka The Deuce) had this truck at one time, you can bet there's photographs somewhere in the Ford Archives. Where are those archives? Greenfield Village.

I wish I'd known about this when I went there (Ford Museum) in 2003.

Maybe I should call a person I know in Detroit ?

Well, if Henry Ford II did own it, you can bet it is worth some money! Howevr, I think the novelty of it would be cool to own just for that.

Hey, wildbill..just sell me the truck, OK? Name a figure. Just discovered a pic of Lee and the Deuce sitting in the truck at a lemonade stand near Flat Rock, MI.

see what happens when you search google for F130.
Besides this thread coming up..there is this page.
It seems there is an F130 in Alberta now.

Then there is this from the news groups alt.autos.ford
