Well hes bin looken around for some time and came to a decision on this... was looken for a bit of a project he could still get out and cruise with
1950 Ford F47 All original paneling.. not sure about the engine..Needs registration, but its pretty much all there.. new axle and brakes..gunna restore a few things but leave the paint for a while... got a flathead V8 and its been sittin for 2 years.. cleaned the tank out and put a new fuel pump and she purrs like a kitten.. one touch of the button

thanks for that site..looks some a lot of stuff on there

but ya hes just thinkin of gettin it registered and then restoring some stuff like the wheels and trim and interior then cruise it around a bit..possibly sell it during the summer..we'll see I guess..I'll buy it if hes gettin rid of it for sure... he also mentioned that he has a 460 waitin if the flat head gives up

ya everyone thats stopped by has been pretty amazed the shape its in for 57 years old!
we had to push it once and I was like holy crap...just solid... don't make them like that anymore
it's got the option to hand crank start it too..I wanna try it.. see if I can take my knee caps off
I the old flat heads too.. they actually have quite a few dress up parts and even performance stuff for them around now
