  1. Tampa Florida; perhaps--I haven't really given trade much thought but I guess I probably would for the right vehicle. Do you have any picts or a URL to them?
  2. This 51 was parked in a barn in 1979 after failing the IL DOT Inspection on 5/10/79. After sitting for 36 years the owners delivered it to a restoration shop in Indiana where it would sit for another two years waiting on funding for the restoration. I purchased the truck just over a year ago because it is an absolute time capsule—completely original 1951 Ford F2, Flathead V8, 4-Speed—that I couldn’t stand to see sitting for another decade. With two other restorations in front of it I’m seriously considering letting it go to someone who may have the time to get her back up and running again. I haven’t attempted to turn the motor and wouldn’t until all the fluids and filters have been changed and the cylinders inspected. I have a good bore camera if you’d like to pull plugs and inspect. Unless there’s corrosion in the cylinders she’ll most likely run again without extensive repairs but again, I strongly recommend taking some time to inspect and lubricate first. Attached are several pictures to include the inspection report; some of the print has faded away over the last four decades but it’s in great shape otherwise.
