For Sale: 1936 Ford Flatbed Truck in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

This amazing 1936 Ford 1� ton flatbed features the Ford 21-Stud 221 cubic inch flathead V8 it was born with. The prized powerplant was professionally rebuilt in 1975, has seen limited duty since, and runs superbly. The original 4-speed manual transmission is also in place along with the 6.60 ratio rear axle completing the classic, all-original drivetrain. The truck has a little extra provenance as well. You can see it in the movie "American Pastoral." Starring Ewan McGregor and Dakota Fanning, it was yet another popular movie filmed in Pittsburgh, a location that has become highly favored with filmmakers. So the graphics on the doors are its "makeup." They give the truck a nice commercial vehicle vibe, but they are vinyl and are easily removable if you so choose. Details such as the period correct fire extinguisher add character. The original tools are mounted on a display board. And you may have noticed there's something on the bed. It's a completely rebuilt and running 1913 Stover 8 horsepower hit and miss motor, an item very collectible by itself. The all-steel body is done in gray and black. New oak sideboards for the bed are included. The interior is remarkable for several reasons. The black seat, headliner, and floor look tough and beautiful at the same time. Gauges for oil pressure, coolant temp, and amps accompany the center mounted speedometer. There's even a trip odometer. The craftsmanship and care this truck was built with is unmistakable. It has been preserved with the same reverence and care, making this a rare find and a great opportunity to take part in a real highlight in the history of Ford Motor Company.
