Introducing myself

I an new to the forum and wanted to say hello. One of my wife's coworkers was talking about an old 47 ford she had in a barn minus the engine, transmission and title of course. I said that I might be interested as long as I could get DMV to issue a new title. Over thanksgiving I was speaking of this truck I was going to take a peak at and my aunt chimed in that I could have the truck my uncle had planned on fixing up ( he passed away 4 years ago), A 1950 ford F1 (pretty rusty)with the original flat head V8 and a spare flat head V8 in the garage. Also in cluded were three extra fenders and an extra bed. I dug it out last weekend and as soon as I get some tires for it I will tow it home and decide what I want to do with it. Besides the two motors that come with the truck I still own an 83 mustang GT that I could steel the engine and trans from, so I have some options LOL. On top of all that I went and looked at the first truck which is actually a 48-50 F3 rusty but not as bad as the F1, I am considering picking that one up as well if I can find a place to put it.

Thats my story looking forward to all the knowledge I will gain here

Welcome and believe me you will get some great assistance if you decide to restore. This group other than myself have a vast amount of knowledge in these old trucks. Through their help it sure has made things easier for me in trying to restore a 51 F-1. Harley
