Seems a bit steep to me, but I'm cheap. If you love it, any price is OK.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Glad to help. (I wanted to crush my computer with a brick yesterday. )


The truck: Looks like somebody's "custom" from the '70s or '80s. Diamond tuft by the yard. Tinted windows. Wide tires on... aluminum slots?

Bondo chunked off the front fender? That would concern me. It appears to be an amateur "splash" job, so it could be loaded with filler and/or hack repairs.

I don't think the price is ridiculous. It would be priced similar in my neck of the woods, though missing parts and overall condition ultimately dictate...

I just went over and looked at this thing...junk! I was only considering it because I have a 4X4 setup that I could make a cool "pasture" truck out of this...but it's too far gone and he's firm on the price. Thanks for the help.

Too bad it's junk. What exactly were the issues?

To me, it looked like it's probably rougher than the photos (the bondo that Doc mentioned), and being it's a 3/4 ton long bed and missing the grille, you'd really need to have it for that price.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Well, maybe not junk...but pretty bad. Lots and lots of thick bondo and almost rusted through in several places that looks like surface rust in the pictures. It could be saved...just not by me.
