1950 Ford "MA BELL TELEPHONE TRUCK

Has anyone seen one of these around ? I have one that my grandfather gave me and is in serious need of restoration. Going to try and get the a flat 6 running then go from there. Does anyone know where I can find another one of these for parts ? How about where to find the MA BELL paint scheme ? Or better yet maybe another truck for parts ?

1950 Ford "MA BELL TELEPHONE TRUCK

I have only seen one truck like that before, a few years ago and it was in a junkyard in Woodbury, Conn. Someone painted it yellow, but it still had the distintive utility box and ladder rack. I don't know if it is still there, but it was complete as far as the body goes. The name of the yard is Woodbury auto parts. I remember it sat on the right under some pine trees(ugh) near the office. You might try the internet yellow pages for a number if you're interested. I have some mechanical parts here if you're interested. I am restoring a 1950 F-1, but it's a pickup.If you want to converse, my e-mail is CLUSSY38(No Email Addresses In Posts!). Thanks!

I just picked-up a 1948 F-1 Telephone Truck.
Flat head 6 w/4 on the floor. Stone stock except for 12volt conversion & old ford auto radio. I'm in the telecommunications field & have been looking for such truck for years. Have not yet had it delivered. ETA: 01-29-01. Would like contact with others of this interest.

I saw a 56 utility truck that was hotrodded at "Back to the 50's" in Minnesota a couple years ago that was pretty cool just by the fact that you don't see them. It would be quite rare restored or rodded and would always cause a stir at most shows. I suggest you go for it!

In the book, "Ford Pickup, Color History" (by Tom Brownell) on page 69 is 1955 F-100 Ohio Bell Phone Company Service Truck. The story says the owner is Bill Bennett. It would be worth it to buy the book. There are 2 pictures of the phone truck and a short story. Lots of other info about '48-52 trucks and '53-56 trucks, also.

Barry it would be great to see some pictures of the truck. Mine is far from original and that would help out. When you get the truck maybe you could send some my way. If you know where another maybe let me know.

I do have a 1949 F1 imported from Texas. It started in 1949 as a truck of Texas Bell but was sold to a painter several years later. I still look forward to receiving pictures of how I did looked like originally. Can you please mail me some pictures?

Welcome to the Forum Birdboy.
If you look at the dates on the posts you'll find that this started 8 yrs ago.
Haven't seen most of these folks in a long while.
As for the utility body if you have one let us know, lots of folks like them.
Pictures, we need pictures.

I forget who originally photo chopped this picture, but I saved it and can now share it, I think that one of these would be a real keep sake if your lucky enough to find one. I don't suppose it would be to hard to recreate one just from a picture and alot of carefull measuring. It just came to me ,I think, it was bobj49f2 that posted that pic. He'll correct me if I'm wrong.
