1953 Ford F350 ... Uncle Passed Away...

I have an uncle that passed away. He left his wife in fairly tough financial circumstance. He's got a 1953 Ford F350 truck she will need to sell for money.

What should one expect to get from such a truck? We have one picture I can post if that will help. Can't tell you much as we're a good 600 miles away and just trying to help her out. I believe it runs, and the picture seems to show a truck in pretty good shape.

Condolences on the passing of your Uncle, but welcome to the forum. Unfortunately for your Aunt, one ton trucks aren't the most desirable or highest vauled model. Depending on condition, she'd probably be lucky to get much more than a couple grand. If we knew where it was, perhaps a member would be wiling to look at it in person, and give a better and more accurate evaluation of it's value.

If it is close by to me...I will look it over and tell you what to expect. Sorry to hear about your Uncle!!
I am sure the above message is about right and the 3/4-2 ton trucks are usually used for smaller trucks ,complete.
I have had them all except a 1 ton.....LOL

Thanks for your kind responses in regards to my Uncle. It's gonna be tough on his wife. It was his 3rd marriage...didn't know her very well personally, but she was nice. He was a collector, and didn't put much away if it wasn't in the form of something somewhat antique

The truck is in: Castro Valley, CA 94552 (San Francisco Area)

Here is a picture.

That could be worth more than we first guessed. I was expecting a F-350 flat bed, well used, some dents some rust, etc. The F-350 Express Beds are kind of rare, however there are no parts repopped for those beds and running boards. But the truck looks good in that pic. One would have to see it in person to get a good idea and to go over the mechanicals. Good luck with it. You have come to the right place for advice!

Sorry about your uncle, and as stated, the appearance of that express makes me think some advertisement and time may help bring a pretty penny. I was picturing a non-running dented old work truck as someone else stated.

Now, hold on here a minute, guys! I don't know my second generation effies as well as the Bonus Built trucks, but I don't think that's your run of the mill F-350. I'm pretty sure that all the standard F-250's and F-350's had 8-lug wheels. This here truck has got 6-lug wheels and they are dished with hand holds unlike normal F-250/F-350 wheels. I'm thinking that it might be a Marmon Herrington or some other flavor of 4x4 conversion. If that's the case, the rarity of those models combined with the condition that one is in would make that truck worth well more than a couple of grand.

BOR,

I just dropped in on this thread, and the first thing I thought was M-H when I saw those wheels. It looks like a nice truck and if it's a M-H that truck could be worth a few bucks to the right person. I'm going to PM Stu and have him stop in and give his opinion.

It is sitting up pretty high. Look especially at the front end and all the space between the wheel and the fender.
