All I know is that the pictures weren't taken anytime this year - and certainly not the last few snowy days.

Interesting that they didn't take any pictures of the MH data plates or undercarriage. I see the rear lift blocks. Cant tell from pics but is the 4x4 shift lever missing?

Agree there is much that’s unknown. Those tall rear lift blocks are just like the ones I salvaged from the 1953 M254 that I parted out years ago, so there is little doubt the truck is real. He says it runs and drives, but there is more to be known like Josh said. Looks like the rear frame was boobed, and flat bed shortened too. Stu

This truck is down in Bob Jones' neighborhood--about 3.5 hours away from me, but real close for Bob. It would be a nice addition to Bob's little fleet, don't you all think? It might even help him to open his mind to new things and get him beyond his very limiting monkey face fixation. LOL. Bob has lots of room on his new farm too.

If I was going to blow through $50K like no ones business, I would find something that would be more fun upfront, like a racing boat......LOL

You are wrong, stu. It wasnt boobed, er bobbed. The lister says it is an optional short bed.

I never heard of an optional shortbed! It looks like the end of the frame rails were cut off and a F100 7 foot bed out on.

Yeah, there was no short bed F-250. My error on the bobbed statement. Stu

Curious about the 55...looks like it has an extruded front hub. Also, why no budd wheels; my eyes are trying to convince me it has 8 lugs, nut 6? And it looks to have a single transfer case shifter. Finally, the front differential looks centered.
