I have a set of well used (read dented, rusty repairable) steel rear truck fenders for a 48-50 truck for cheap. Anyone looking for a set? If so I can throw them in the back and bring them to Bobs.

Sorry but I still don't understand were you are getting a "big" window or "small" window from? 53-55 F100s all had the same size rear glass. Can you explain?

Welcome to the madness. Personally, I would offer much less than the $1400 being asked by the seller. My rule of thumb is this: If the car is full of parts and junk or sitting in the weeds...
