Guys

I have a 1955 F600 I've decided to sell.  It has the Merc. 256, 5 speed with 2 speed rearend.  It is a former firetruck with around 25,000 miles.  The truck now has a flatbed on it.  It runs well and I drove it regularly until last year.  I took it off the road after I bought my dump truck.  I just have too many vehicles.  I have some pictures of it and will post them as soon as I find them.  I'm in Virginia but I have the truck on my property in PA, just outside of Pittsburgh. 

Trying for $2500 or best offer.

Roger,

Very nice truck. I am getting a 59 f600 stock truck. It has the 4speed 2 speed axel. Is it hard to shift in and out of the two speed axel? It looks like you have split rims? If so, is it hard to get tires for these? Also, how hard is it to find fenders, hoods, and other sheet metal? I assume the sheetmetal is not changeable with F-100's?

Darrell,

I just read your post here after I read your other one.  I haven't had to change tires on mine as they are in good shape.  Mine actually has two different types of wheels, some are the widow makers some are the newer split rings.  As mentioned in the other post no one will work on the widowmakers.  There is another site that deals with ford-trucks.  Tons of info on the wheels and where to get new ones made.

As for sheetmetal, I don't know about a '59 but for mine everythings the same except for the front fenders and running boards.  The running boards are wider than the smaller f-series and the front fenders have a larger wheel opening. 

Good luck with your '59!

Rodger

Thanks Roger. Now I must hang my head and share a story with anyone having to change wheels on these big Ford Trucks. I do not have any split rims, which I know from taking one of the wheels/tires in to Les Schwab to get an estimate for tires and to see what kind of wheels I actually had. Anyone attempting to remove one of these wheels, the ones on mine have a small "L" on the stud, I did not find this until I twisted one off and had it in my hand. Never occurred to me until too late. Hope I can save this from happening to anyone else attempting to remove one of these wheels.
