    Bob,
    Welcome to FTE!
    The first thing to look for is rust and excessive bondo. The F350 is a little harder to get parts for. The main thing is brake parts. I'm not sure where it gets extremely hard, an F350 shouldn't be too bad though. Glass is pretty easy to come by.
    If you have pictures start a thread and have everyone look it over. I'm far from an expert, but there are guys that can spot about anything. Oh, I'm not sure what size trucks start with widowmakers, those are very dangerous rims. Stu (truckdog) is our wheel expert.
    I think it would be a great marketing tool, but you can sink a lot of money into these if you aren't careful.
    If you can post pictures, know that some guys will find every flaw in the truck. It is not to discourage you from the purchase, but to make sure you know what you are walking into. Unless of course several people strongly recommend walking away from the purchase.
    Thanks, Joe

    Hi Harrier ! I'm very new to club site.From what I read,you are the man! I'm looking at a 1953f350 he wants 1900 and it runs and has a 9 ft bed.Im looking for a truck to use as a marketing tool with my construction company on doors( that's what I'm telling my wife anyway) It won't be a daily driver ,just a ride around town and car shows in town to get my name out.He did say it needs glass on doors.I have a 1977 MGB ( long story) and playing around with a 1960 MGA restoring ( $$$) those cars really got me thinking about a cool old truck for a marketing tool .I have not seen it in person yet ,but plan on it soon.What should I be looking for ? It runs he said and has 42 k on it
    Thanks Bob
    I thought I'd be the only guy with a MG in the world ,until I found out the power of the Internet and car clubs)
