Ford Other Pickups 1947 Description

1947 Ford Cab OverOriginal Rust Free Survivor! For consideration is 1947 Ford COE. I purchased this truck with the intentions of making it a car hauler. It was covered in dust from sitting in a barn for a number of years. When I got the truck home and gave it a bath I was stunned by how pristine the body was. There wasn't/isn't rust anywhere. Even the door seams are perfect on the underside. I also have the trim piece that says FORD that some have that wrap around the top of the nose piece. The waterfall grill is near perfect. There are no dings. needs a little polishing and has some very very minor surface rust on the edges nearest the radiator. The front bumper needs re-chromed but isn't horrible still good driver quality. It has been converted to 12 volt. The battery and cables are new. The battery box. which is comprised of two flat steel strips. has a split in one of the pieces of steel. but the battery is still held solidly. The tires are all new. the two in the front and the two rear outside match. the two inside are a different tread and have 100% tread but are slightly older. The wheels are all in excellent shape and painted to match the truck. The frame was apparently cleaned and painted. It has a new exhaust. 2 speed rear end and a PTO. The flathead V8 runs perfectly. The first time I started it I didn't even realize it was running. There is no headliner. The seats have been re-upholstered. The interior is painted to match the outside. The speedometer cable is not connected (I imagine when they painted the inside of the cab the dash was just put back in). All the lights work. The header panel above the drivers seat has a square hole cut into it where the windshield wiper motor is (don't know why) or maybe it's just missing a cover/. It is a period correct enamel paint job. not a new base coat clear coat mirror finish. truck runs drives and stops and is a blast to drive. The truck was originally from Kingman Kansas. The height is approximately 85 inches. length is approximately 186". and center of front wheel to center of rear wheel is approximately 128". I don't know a whole lot more about the truck but if you have questions feel free to ask and I will answer to the best of my knowledge. I truly think it would be hard to find one that is in this nice of shape. This is being sold as is with no warranty. A non-refundable $500 deposit is required within 24 hours of winning bid. The vehicle is stored indoors. no hurry to have it transported. I am flexible on a reasonable pick-up date. I can help assist with shipping and quotes if needed. Clear title in hand.
