Yeah not a flat bed. One just sold on ebay. It went for $6200, I didn't think that was bad. It needed a lot of interior work, but mechanically and the exterior were fine.But it was in Vegas. That would be a haul . .but a good reason to go back to Vegas for a couple days :)
I went and looked at one this past weekend. In the pics, it had issues, but was much worse. It was a complete and total redo . .take every panel off and restore each and everyone part of it :) Lots and lots of bondo, so worse than it appears,. So I'm still looking . . might go for a 65/66 F100 too.
There is a 57 shorty sitting in a guys driveway 3 miles from me. Has patina look. No front bumper. Best I can tell its in pretty good shape. No for sale sign. It moves around in his driveway. I can inquire about it for you if you want.
Would like to add PB, some type of OD/trans ( would love to find one of the original type cable activated OD units. But I'm sure super $$$ and kinda funky to operate). Add the Ford lettering back to the tailgate, etc. The engine is a 292, last year for the Y-Blocks.I have a softness in my heart for YBlocks. I have a 312 in my Bird.
