Car description

This is my 1952 Ford F3 that started life as a West Penn Electric truck until 1959 when it was retired. I was told it was purchased in 1959 by the family I bought it from in the fall of 2012. The F3 is the "heavy" model comparable to a modern F350, is rated at a ton, and has a full 8 foot bed, heavy duty frame and suspension, and larger wheels. They are much rarer than the standard, light duty F1 with the shorter bed.
The truck has the original 215 cubic inch OHV in-line 6 cylinder engine with a 3 speed manual on the floor. It has just over 86,500 original miles. The carburetor has been rebuilt and retains the original glass float bowl. The truck’s electrical system has been converted from the original 6 volt positive ground to a 12 volt negative ground system.

The heater and windshield wipers have been installed but are not wired.
As you can see, the truck has a customized bed made of PVC board. The truck originally had a unique bed given its history as a utility truck. I was only able to save the fenders and the rare, short tailgate. The bed was designed to incorporate the uniqueness of the tailgate.
The “Bob’s Big Boy” bobble head conveys with the truck – it’s the truck’s mascot.
Car cover included.
I have a clean Pennsylvania title. The truck is not licensed.
