1950 F47 home safe

She arrived, salt and all from Alberta yesterday.
I'm amazed, the cab has no holes, just surface rust, and the frame needs nothing (except a change of color), fenders are easily patchable.
I got 2 flatheads in the deal, but no trans.
One of the tires on the rear Alfa lost air, loosened the chain, and had a small fight with the F47's frame. The Alfa lost.
Cant wait till spring!!!!!!!!!!

It appears there is a gas door on the passenger rear fender? Or am I seeing things?

I doubt you are seeing things.
The truck picked up a fair load of filth on the trip.
Lets write it off as 'road-cake'

Nice project truck. Of course it is a little hard to tell with all the road grime.

Looks good Chris Chris. If I had a know you were going West I'm sure I could have thought of something for you to drag along and drop off on your way by. Get that salt off and I hope it is in as good a shape as it looks. Them Western trucks have bolts that unbolt instead of breaking/snapping.

Great looking truck Chris, nice to have some good metal to work with. Hopefully the last time it sees those road conditions!
