Why would you even consider doing anything other that polishing this beauty???

I'm a hard core darksider and I wouldn't do a thing to it.

I was up close to the truck, it's not perfect, but pretty close. I think it might have be an ex fire truck from the condition it's in. I just thought I'd post it again because there seemed to be some interest in it last time. Times have changed a bit since I first posted it so there might not be as much interest any more, as evidenced by the drastic price drop.

My dad bought a farm truck '56 COE back in the late 60's. We had the truck and used it regularly until it got rolled in the late 70's. It was a great truck with a 292, 5 speed tranny and a 2 speed rear axle. We regularly hauled 350 bushels of corn or wheat in the truck. It was really fun to drive. I wish I had it now.

Tell me about the N series? Do you know how much for that one?

I talked with Andy (the owner/seller) today. He says that the truck came with a farm that he bought. He drove it from the farm to his house, some 150 miles, without a problem...the truck had sat for 5 years prior to him starting it up and driving it. He thinks that with an oil change, grease, and a tune-up that it should easily make the drive to the West coast. As an added note...he says that he could fill the bed of this truck up with machine shop equipment that he has for sale if I was in the market. If anyone who reads this needs machine tools or sheet metal fabrication tools you may want to give him a call. As for the truck I am still wrestling with the idea, getting it to San Diego is one thing, finding a place to keep it is another. That truck sure would make a cool truck hauler though and it's a perfect match for my 56 F100.

Kevin,

I haven't seen the N series truck for a while. He still may have it. His house is off the main road in a wooded lot, I've only gone past it once and you could just see the COE.

Charlie,

I sure would be interested in the machines if I had the money. Did he give you any indication of what he wants for it? He's only about a half mile from my shop.
