’49 FORD Stakebed, really rare with its original stakes and bed complete with the Ford logo on the back. Its history has been originally as a farm truck in Idaho and kept under cover so there's not weather damage. Historically trucks like it were also used by appliance stores for delivery. It was bought about ten years ago and some restoration occurred; I bought it about 8 years ago and spent 6 years working on it. I'm proud of the results. And I hope anyone will enjoy it as I have. It drives and handles really well. I elected not to repaint it, opting for the patina look. The odometer reading reflects mileage since completion. VIN# is original metal tag. It could be fun to use in our modern day for camping, rafting, hauling, your business logo on the side. Always available for answers by email, phone, text.
