I bid on this one, couldn't force myself to bid any higher than $6k without seeing it in person.
I talked to him on the phone, he said he had a $7950 reserve and if I was still interested to come see it.
I don't think I'm willing to give that for it, so I'll just keep looking.

You like the looks of those? The later ones look so much better, but you know what they say about opinions, I guess.

Saw a very good restore/mod candidate the other day on a trailer headed north. I like that body style...customized that is.

Not a bad looking truck. I agree with you on looking at it in person, first. I also preffer the '51 - '53's. Each to their own. Keep on looking and you will find what you are looking for.

51-52's are different than 53's Dave. Grille is similar though. The 48-50's are nicer looking than 51-52 in my opinion... and i even own a 53. I can't seem to get into the 42-47 war era ones but pre-41 are nice.

Tom,
Yes, the '51 and '52s are the same and the '53 is different. But I have always liked the big grille in those years. Looks damn good to me and tough. Gotta like that. Old trucks are great.

After the 1956 and 1966, the 1948-1950 F-1's are my favorite trucks. If you can get to Knoxville, TN in May (13-15) for the F-100 Supernationals, there will be many, many trucks for sale.

I plan to attend the show in Knoxville, either with a truck or cash in pocket to drive one home.
My searches so far have netted either junk or trucks that I like but can't afford.
