Trip to the Salvage Yard - Lots of pictures

Last fall I stopped at Watts Salvage near Wymore, NE, but it was way to muddy to take a look around. Yesterday I revisited between my morning and evening duties as Deer Slayer. I took a lot of pictures so I am sharing them with Google Photos. I hope it works for you guys. Please let me know. Of course I limited my search to trucks, late 40's through mid 50's. I know I probably missed a few because the yard is not very well organized. Since I'm new around here and not real familiar with the F1, F2, etc, let me know what you think.

Wow, that yard is awesome! Don't you get much rain in Nebraska? Old stuff in yards around here just rust away!

Did you buy anything? Or do they charge high prices? The long running boards on that F350 look in great shape. Plenty of good hoods, doors, tailgates, trim.....

You know Abe, I was so overwhelmed and was just enjoying the moment (2 hours) There is rust, just in various stages. I was mainly looking for F350 rear wheel hubs and rear axle for back up if mine fails me. Also, saw a lot of mirrors, just haven't decided what I'm going with yet. Never asked about prices at this time. They let you pull it and negotiate. The town is about 60 miles away and is the same place my parents are from.

No idea on pricing Charlie. This place is old school junk yard by definition. Been there for many years. No website, no parts inventory, just pull um in the back and let um sit I think they finally set up a Facebook page if you use that.

Somehow you slipped a Chevy in there, but your're forgiven! Great Job on the pictures. - Bob

I spied several 8ft express beds and running boards on F2s /F3s in there. Might be worth taking a closer look at those to see if anything can be saved. Nice yard to have access to, thanks for the pics.
