Ditto on the big trucks. That Marmon Herrington F5 done up in orange makes me weak in the knees, but I'm thinking a really light, clear lime green with black fenders for mine.

Great looking Truck! I like those clearance lights on it, nice detail. I'm thinking of putting them on my 55. Mark

Differences between F3, F5 and F6

I am looking for a F4, F5 or F6 to restore with a wooden stake bed. Are the cabs on these models all the same size and the differences are in the suspension and load capacity? Thanks. I am a new member.

Welcome NDP! A new thread introducing yourself might get more attention, but to answer your question, the cabs are the same F1-6, front fenders F2-6, frames and wheelbase vary as you go bigger. I know of an F6 in North MN, if that's not too far away. F7/8 cabs are the same also, but the front is wider.

Why Yes; Yes I Do! :)

My wife wants me to repaint the 52 F6 the same color it is now, the paint code is "G" which I believe is "Glen Mist Green" its hard to tell if they are in fact the same color??? http://s216.photobucket.com/albums/c...d%20F6%20dump/

And yes, I really don't have a use for this truck other than saying "that is one cool truck" hopefully I can drive it in the St Patricks Day parade next spring, If I can get it fixed up that soon! Tires and rims are going to be a killer on the checkbook though, I am not familair with the widow makers but assume these will need to go, plus the front tires are so big they almost rub the fenders!

speaking of big trucks, I wish I was closer to go look at these. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?sid=&ni...iew&ad=1451415
they have been for sale quite a while and price has come down but I bet they could be had for even less??

btw NDP welcome to the best group of ford truck lovers anywhere!

We all love BIG TRUCKS

Bigger IS better. The bigger, the better, more room to tow stuff



Been trying to talk a local guy out of a 48-50 F-6, but he won't give his kid the message. Been sitting in the same spot for almost ten years.

Yeah, that is pretty cool, and coming together quick! (If the pictures I've seen are in time.) Of course, if I didn't have an F-2, I'd want a big COE - Maybe even an old freightliner w/ a sleeper - but that's because Generation One means big red COE to me.

And I really want this truck!

thing is is that I probably couldn't afford it; but they are letting it sit there

with the Glass missing and collecting water inside!!


I am still trying to contact the owners to see if I can adopt it! plus down the street from this one is a really nice 48 49 firetruck with a tree growing up and over it!!! I wish I had that kind of problem. lol

Problem is I don't even now what kind of value to expect on this COE to make an offer, that and I dont know how rusty it is either? notice the dog in picture #2

Cheers
Josh

The pictures are pretty much in time. The photobucket did auto arrange some of the donor rig pictures, but most all of the build/progress shots are more or less in sequencial order.
