1950 F6 winch truck in Idaho

This truck showed up along my normal work drive a week or so ago. So I stopped by today and took a few photo's for you guys (and gals).

Good stuff... thanks for posting. Proof that there are still deals out there in this crazy world. Running truck w/ under 11,000 original miles... Wow! I'm glad in a way that I'm not in that area of the country because I'd be dragging this type of stuff home all the time. Wait... maybe I need to move there!

I think we need some hard core truck **** on this one! I'd love to see a running/driving video...

F-6 trucks didn't come from the factory with 5 speed transmissions. I'd bet on a four speed transmission behind that 239.

That's a really rare Truckstell 5 speed conversion. It uses the F-7/8 transmission. Any chance you can get a closeup shot of the dash plate and some from underneath? I would imagine they used a custom bell housing and rear mount.

11000 miles but probably a lot more hours on the motor from sitting running the boom.
