Vehicle Description

1935 or 1936 Ford 50-1 ½ ton truck for sale. The vehicle is registered as a 1935 and the title reflects "first sold in 1935" so this ad reflects what is on the title, but the VIN number is indicative of an early 1936 truck. I am not an expert in this area so I would ask that any prospective buyer consider this prior to an offer. This is the long wheelbase version of these increasingly rare trucks. This truck runs and drives well, but needs to have some of the interior re-installed along with the final hook-up of the new wiring harness. I have the interior panels that need installation. My brother and I purchased this truck not running and partially disassembled from a friend of ours in the central coast area. He had owned the truck for 25 years. The original motor was locked up so I had the motor disassembled and checked over. The block magna-fluxed and is re-buildable, but the crank is cracked. While looking for a 1935 crank we came across a good running larger displacement 1953 Mercury flathead so we stripped the accessories off and dropped it in with as many original parts as we could. Apparently these 1953 Mercury flatheads were the last and largest of the flatheads and are sought after for swaps. We did keep the 1953 oil filter on the motor as it looked really cool. The donor motor has two new water pumps, professionally rebuilt original 1935 carburetor, new wires, and hoses. We also converted the electrical system over to 12 volts for reliability and the whole thing looks pretty original. It starts and runs good, the lights work and and the trucks original factory power brakes work well. We had the original rims sanded & powder coated and 5 new Firestone 7 -20.0 tires (at $2500.00) installed only a couple months ago (including the spare tire). The truck has very little corrosion with the exception of some spots on the roof line seams, but it does not appear to have gone through to the cab. The original disassembled flathead motor and accessories are included in the deal along with another 1953 crankshaft. All in all, a really sanitary truck that appears not to be missing much of anything. If you wish to rebuild the original motor, you have all the parts less a 1935 crankshaft, but the Mercury engine and spare crankshaft are worth some bucks to help pay for the rebuild. Tail lights and horn are not original, but good OEM style products. The truck does have what appears to be the original cargo tie downs and cast iron stake bed pockets. Title is clear and custom plate “35 TRUCK” goes with it. No trades and local pickup only please.
