I hope she says yes......

Finally tracked down the owner of the property with the Fridges I have been drooling over from the road. An elderly lady who just happens to want to clean out all the "Old Junk" her late husband collected over the years. She told me to go in and take a look and see if they were worth bothering with.... Well I did and I have bothered with much worse... Before I make an offer, I need to clear it with the wife... Wish me luck...


59 F100 cab, frame and front clip and a 60 F250 minus the engine and trans.



Corners are not too bad.





Cant tell about the steps but looks promising.



Solid floor.





Left fender is a little munched.





Front looks pretty good. I want that bumper for my daughter's '58 project.

Here are pictures of the F250. this is what really interests me....


Long bed. Pretty solid. 800 lb bumper....







Some rust peeking out but no holes in this corner. Cant see the other.





Might need an old blanket on the seat.



Front and rear suspension look complete.



Pretty straight.

Exactly. And she said the “fixed up one” is home in the garage if I wanna look at it.

Looks like fun Martin. Make sure you scour the property for hidden gems in the weeds.

Actually I agreed to (well he wife says I agreed to or else...) give the '58 to my daughter but in return I get another project. I am thinking a F250 Fridge would be a nice project.... Stock on the outside and creature comforts under the hood and in the cab.....

I love my 59 F250 and drive it almost every day. But then I like it because it's an old truck, smells and drives like an old truck. If I need comfort, I just take the Gran Marquis or Super Duty.

Martin, just going back through the pictures and OMG, that F250 would be an ambitious project, basically a frame and shell. I know you are no stranger to projects and do nice work but, well I guess my lazy side just kicks in. I mean, I bought my 59 F250 4x4 complete, as parked, for less than a grand, and then got the engine running.

I got the ok to see how much they will cost. It's not a "go ahead" but it's not a no. I may need a helicopter to get them out though. They are surrounded by dismantled farm equipment. May have to rent a 4 wheel steer extended boom forklift.
