Here is a fantastic 1949 F2 Ford Ma Bell Telephone Truck with the fantastic original right hander telephone truck bed, we were told this was for Ma bell, and 450 or so were made.. The truck is on a 1972 1 ton Dodge Chassis, so this girl has a nice 318 with a 2 BBL, a new HEI Distributor, a 1 wire GM Distributor, new Accel Super Stock wires and new plugs, radiator is in nice shape, fluid green.. The Oil Looks pretty good. This beast has a 4 spd transmission with what looks to be a PTO output, I did nothing to the drivetrain, nor do I have knowledge of what has been done, but this thing has new brake lines, new calipers, the plug wires, this is a super solid truck mechanically and boy this beast will stand tall in any crowd.. You got the GM alternator, There is no fuseblock, the chassis is wired, but this is where cool comes in, as it runs and drives just like it is.. Some tailights and a little wiring and some glass to be legal..
The chop on this thing is awesome!!! very straight.. I have not measured, but offhand I would guess it is at least 6" The welds are finished on the outside of the cab, and the inside was left partially finished, I thin ... The truck has a passenger side glass in it, but it will need replaced. You get new in bag Windshield and rear glass rubbers. The truck comes with what looks to be a good original style behind seat gas tank, currently it has a steel marine style tank, this was done on purpose, as it is welded in by angle iron. This right hander box is fantastic, it needs a tiny bit of work towards the very front of the floor on the inside, you have to crawl in to see it.. The truck runs pretty good, I took it up and down the road, I did not take it on the highway, but the guy I got it from said he drove it back in forth between a few towns.. The window mechanisms crank up and down, the hood vent is in awesome shape, you get the tags on cowl and in the glove box. The Truck has a cb mic bracket on the drivers door and on the right side a radio hookup.. You could have glass and wiring for about 500 bucks, and I'm sure you know guys that will do it cheaper, The tires are 16's with the split rim style 8 lug on the fron, and 16.5" tires one what look to be Budd wheels. This thing drove fine with these tires, they have good tread and are functional, but I think the ride would improve with some radials..
The 318 sounds good, small exhaust leak, transmission is fully operational as is the clutch. The frame in the rear has been c notched and a ring welded in, so you could flip the rear end and lower the truck, be a great truck to put on air ride, but she looks wicked like this, but it nice that the option is so easy if you want to go that route. The seats are comfy, and both recline. The seats are welded to the floor, they also welded the front fenders to the body, just like they put a nice big waterfall run on the passenger fender, just like there is a small rusty spot left on the bottom rim of the passenger side of the cab, on purpose. The hood has a couple dents in it, and it has a couple rust holes on the sides, but they are cleared, and they are part of the art, as are the dents, as are most of the imperfections on this baby, most of it is done on purpose, or if it was not fixed it was protected.. The mix of priming and then color sanding, and then clearing, this thing is art.. This is a super,awesome, rare truck, the hard work is done, most of the easy work is done, I have went as far as i am going with it, it is up to you to put your touches on it and make it your baby, you know you have never seen one.Any car show, any parking lot, this is the only one going to be there.. You could repaint it if you want, but it would be a shame to ruin the creativity.. This is history but this is also art.. It is very close to an every day driver, it drives runs and stops, many newmechanical s, and the body is awesome, the doors, on the truck and the bed open and close smoothly.
Drive it like this, or put a newer rear end and and automatic, but it would be a shame to part with the super tall shifter,you could slam it to the ground,or throw some sticky mickeys one the rear band make a cruiser, what ever you want, you can do with this truck.. I will take a partial trade, needs to run and drive, trades come to me.. I have only had this a brief time, I am ready to move on to the next toy, so this is here to sell or trade, but make a reasonable offer, Rat rods are Hot, Hot rods Are hot, Fords Are hot chopped tops, are well, chopped, this has disc brakes and power steering in systems that are cheap to work on, and these parts are in great shape, so you aren't going to have to work on, the truck has a new waster cylinder, truck has a new starter, you can have the battery i use to start the truck, but it is too large for the battery box built on the inside of the firewall.. The inside of the windshield on the top needs finished, there is a new section complete with rear view that comes with truck, also the larger stainless ford logo hood strips. The floot of the cab is in great shape, a tiny bit of work needed around the rear floor area where they adjusted things to make the cab ride the frame, I can't really call this a project, so much has been done, you could almost do nothing and be fine, or you could make this just as nice as you want, depending one what you want, and the hard stuff is here, in a user friendly package.. Als, a spare pair of rim centers. cut out, no clue what the intent was of this, you get a grill center section. You also get a full set of 4 roof corners front and rear at stock height . The headlights are in good shape and have nice buckets, there is some wiring, but this too will need connected.. This truck is wired to run and drive. It has an on/off power switch and a push button start. the wiring harness is on the steering wheel and it has the plug, the turn signal lever feels good, so this is a simple wire job, an afternoon you would be legal. The instrument cluster is not hooked up, but it has good glass, the windshield wiper switch is there..There is no heater in the truck, but several companies make nice systems that will bolt right in.. Whatever you do will add value to this truck, this is a super foundation that you just put the icing on, for trades, no Motorcycles, nothing that is not street legal , if a car, nothing newer than 1985, a truck, 1972.. again, trades come here.. This truck runs and drives, but it has no tail lights, let alone wired ones, so you make arrangements to haul it.. I love the truck, but that viewpoint isn't shared, so this jewel leaving us is best.. Also, nothing yellow.. unless its a willy's, but i will have to primer it at least at your place before it comes here.. It is an awesome truck, We are honest people, we offer you a great truck, please holler at us for offers or questions, we are in Little Hocking Ohio, 45742.. we are only a couple miles from highway, on easy paved roa, nice loading graveled area.
