I imagine someone with actual numbers will chime in, but I found a reference that shows a 1953 F250 with an 8 ft bed is 3575lbs. Ballpark idea at least.

I did a quick search and found this thread:
https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/2...rb-weight.html

Here is the post from ferguson777
F2 Chassis and cab model -

Max width at front fenders = 73 inches

Track of front wheels (center of tread to center of tread) = 58.08"
(so add about 2.5 " x 2 for outside of tread width)

Track of rear wheels = 60."
(so add about 5" for max. width of tires)

Overall length (bumper to bumper) = 205.76 "

Curb weight - 3256 to 3310 lbs.

An F1 with the same rear track width as the F2 has a max. width on the rear fenders of 75.94"

I would ballpark that combo right around 3500 pounds.
