If you are interested in bidding but have 15 or less feedback, you need to contact me first, if not, then I will retract your bid. Just trying to be fair to other bidders.
Up for bid is a very rare 1961 Ford F250 4X4, a former fire/rescue unit. Only 380 cab, chassis and cowl units were produced in 1961 and unknown as to how many are left. The truck was built at the Milpitas, Ca. plant in July of 61. It is a numbers matching vehicle with the 292 V-8, 4-speed trans and the 4.56 or rear-end ratio. Top speed is around 50 MPH max. the mileage is also original at 60K plus. The paint appears to be the original Monte Carlo red but could have had a repaint many years ago. Front seat is like new and was probably re-upholstered way back when as well.
The vehicle runs fine, shifts well with a strong clutch and decent brakes. I drove the vehicle up to around 25-30 MPH and backed off due to the tires being shot and dry-rotted. I have a nice set of only (3) tires with 16 wheels. Still have the original rims, 16.5. The body is very solid for being 57 years old. The floors, pans, fenders, doors and firewall are all solid. The only real rust/rot is on the front lip of the hood, about 4 in length and did not penetrate the 2nd layer. All the glass is decent and appears to be original.
I have some period correct emergency equipment from this era as well as an electronic siren which was later added. The vehicle needs TLC but a great solid platform for whatever and has a clear title.. They don"t come along very often in running condition. I have placed a reasonable reserve on the vehicle based on overall condition. If you have any questions, don"t hesitate to either Email me or call, (408)448-1717.
I accept paypal for a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 and must be received within 24 hours at the close of auction. Balance can be made with cash in person, a cashier"s check and/or a money order. Winning bidder is responsible for their own shipping of vehicle, good luck.
Vehicle dimensions are as follows: total length is 18" and width is 6" 5. This vehicle will fit in an average driveway.
