1960 Ford 4x4
 
Hi, I am contemplating on buying a 1960 3/4 Ton what I believe must be a F250 as it is a 3/4 Ton Pickup. It has a Inline 6 and a 4 speed manual trans. I am 100% sure this is a Factory 4x4. Not a homemade job.

I can get it for around 500.00. It does run and is in decent shape with nothing other than dings and no major dents. No visible rust from what I could see with a light inspection..

Faded paint. It looks like your typical well cared for old Farmer owned Farm Pickup. Uncle to be exact..

I am wanting to know if I did drag it home. Is that a good price with possibly some potential for some profit after giving it some light tuneup work, new battery and such?

Just how rare are they in a 1960 4x4 factory Truck?

May keep it also if I fall in love, but more likely would be resold after some light mechanical work....Thanks

I would jump on it

you don't say where your from

but around here it's had to find any old Truck that runs for under $1000

short bed ? 4x4 +++Little or no rust ++++

and it's got a 9 inch rear end and if its the nodular its worth $500 sold by itself

I am from Nebraska. It is a long box however. How do I tell what rear axle it has..Going tomorrow afternoon to look it over closer. It is only about three miles from my house.

He has not used it in a few years..He is right at 80 years old and has had it a long time..He used it to push snow in his long driveway for years.

Stilll has a crazy looking homemade plow on it....Thanks

if you can drive it home for $500 get it
you won't regret it, may even become a $$$ pit that you will enjoy driving

thats a sharp body style

if you get it post the codes either found on the drivers door jamb or glove box

and we can tell you what it's supposed to have/be

JSoko November 13th, 2013 08:40 PM

we can tell you a lot with the VIN #

carbineone November 14th, 2013 10:22 AM

I will get the vin today and maybe snap a pic also..Thanks

JSoko November 14th, 2013 10:41 AM

great
look for them code #'s also

carbineone November 14th, 2013 01:05 PM

Well went to look again. I will include some pic at the end also.

First off it is a V8. Not a six like he said. Maybe you can tell by the numbers if it was a 6 originally and he forgot he changed it.

Serial Number F10COK53782

WB Color Model Date Trans Axle
118 B F103 16F FA 02

Anything you guys can give me with that info would be great. Its a neat Old Truck that could probably grow on a guy..Thanks

where did you get the serial # ?

and where did the other #'s come from ?

here's what I have found on 2 different decoders

Unable to decode VIN. Please check the number and try again.
Check for typos like putting in the letter S instead of the number 5 or letter O instead of the number 0.

wait & see what others find

there's a decoder on this site, but I'll be damn if I can find it
