Default 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

here's what they look like on the driveshaft side the one in the middle is the best one you can tell by the ribs



here's the back side



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

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.

Unable to decode VIN. Please check the number and try again

wait & see what others find

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