New Father-Son project!

My neighbor called me this weekend, and offered this old Ford pickup for FREE! My son and I will be restoring it and giving it to my granddaughter for graduation in about 4 more years.

May I say this is an absolutely beautiful picture there - do you happen to have it in large size, say 1600x1200 pixels? I'd love to have it as my desktop at work!

Second, your granddaughter must be a real cool girl if she wants something like that as a graduation present, most ladies I know will never understand the true value of these projects.

Good luck with it, sure looks promising!

Thanks! I do have it in a larger format, PM me your email add, and I'll send it to you. It's what I have as my desktop! All my "girls" love Ford trucks. My Daughter and Son-in law have a "56" and my oldest granddaughter has a "67". We are definitely an all Ford family

That is fantastic luck!!! I am in an all Ford family also... However when I was 15 my father tried to buy me an old International Scout. I ended up with a 73 F150... But we have always talked about Scouts.... I am thinking about bidding on a 67 on Ebay, even though my father has mentioned 50's Ford trucks a few times in last 6 months......

I live in the high desert of eastern Oregon, and we only get 6-8 inches of rain a year. Not much chance of rust here.............The front end is sitting on the axel ( hubs are missing), and the rear bumper is sitting on 2 railroad ties ( rear end is gone). I still can't believe the body is in such great shape! As soon as the ground firms up I'll bring it down to the shop, and take some more pics.

We haven't done anything yet, just gathering parts and pieces. We should start the build sometime next year.....
