46 Ford 1/2 ton :)

a friend has a 46 Ford 1/2 ton for sale, it has a boxed and fully welded frame, mustang 2 front end with new poly bushings, and a 460/C6. It needs to be finished, wired, brakes, interior, body work, etc. Pictures here of it, if interested, let me know and I can forward you his email or phone. The truck is in BC,Canada and is asking 3000.US

Good to have you back, Rick. I wish I had the money and it was closer. That would be one tough tow rig!

thanx Brian, I just wish I had the money for the truck, man it would look so cool when it was finsihed. The motor came out of a 78 or so Lincoln, and it ran. Thing would be a total sleeper.

This would have been an "F1" wouldn't it ...

Didn't the F100 insignia begin in 53?

Not wanting to be a Smart A$$ ...

The post just got my curiosity going and I'm not sure when the model name changed

crazy monster take it for what it worth. I have no idea when the F100 started, but its a cool truck none the less. If I get a chance, I'll check and see when the F100 namesake started.

Definately a cool truck to work with ... so many of the 53 to 56 pieces on the road ...

For instance I just subframed my 55 Effie (oooh don't tell Queenie I just called it mine) with a Pontiac Trans AM front clip ...

Doing that to on of these pre 50s trucks would be very cool, I can't imagine watching one of these old pickups whaling through a canyon road at 110 and handling like a "Slot Car" ... but I bet'cha we could do it.

"novel concept"

I still have pix of your truck on my site, but I dont have anymore space of my own to ad more. If you want to join it, you can ad all you want of it. The site is

I would like to get the 46 for sure, but I have way to may projects and havent had a chance to do anything to them for awhile so there sitting and my yard looks like a small wrecking yard as it is. But a sleeper '46 with a 514 sure sounds bitchin'

Larry, I got a reply from my inquirey, and he says its called a 1/2 ton, not a F1 or F100. Guess I should stay in the dark huh

Rick

here's his reply

But as far as that truck goes, it's named by its size. For example, that is a 1/2 ton pickup so it is referred to as a 1/2 ton pickup. Where as an F-1 would be a 1/2 ton pickup from '48-'52, and an F-100 would be from '53 to whenever.
