so much salvageable sheet metal and trim out there. it is a shame to let it go to rust and dust.

There wasn't much on the interior. I have the gauge cluster out. I haven't been up to the farm in several months. Whenever I'm up there I don't seem to have time to work at taking it apart. The hood is in great shape as well.

was out of town part of last week for work and took a couple senic detours, one was for a 51 F-2 or 3 truck I had spotted two years ago, (not pictured and I didn't talk with the owners) but found a few other trucks while aout and about.

This blue 48-50 F-3 M-H sure got Josh and me lathered up swapping emails and texts. Based on the axle number it's probably a 48. Single speed transfer case model. A southern Utah/Nevada area truck that looks really rust free. Not for sale. Stu

When I scrolled down and saw the front axle I immediately began wondering what you guys were going to do about that. That truck looks in great shape now, but it looks like it is on a downhill path. Hopefully I'm wrong and the owner will be cleaning her up very soon.

Josh should describe what he heard from the shop owner where he found the truck. Clearly it'd been sitting there a while based on the low tires and being blocked in by other vehicles around it. The missing hood and outer cab badges says it was repainted at some point, but is now dull from the desert environment. Having spent its life in that area suggests its body has to be in great shape.

the shop owner said he was going to replace the fuel pump and a couple other minor things. that tells me that the owner isn't very familiar with these trucks even though he has owned it for 20 years. the one stake pocket had some good rust bubbling through. the shop owner didn't seem to be in any hurry to work on it either,

Thanks, too bad the shot was just with my cell phone and I had to reduce the image size to post.


here are a couple more pictures from yesterday.
the red fuel truck looked like a 48-50

All those beautiful trucks and he points out the Mustang.
What was that panel with the windows? I saw the back end, but never could see the front.

I posted a comment on the video. Maybe he will let us know where that is. Nebraska? Iowa?

Dyersville, Iowa. Some of the license plates, while tough to see clearly, may be from Minnesota.

That panel was a GMC. I think a couple of the plates at the start of the video could be enhanced somehow by someone more computer savvy than me. Check the early 70's c---y at the start and the red one a bit later on. They almost look like MN. plates or maybe ND.
