Sweet. HD 3/4 ton, I think.

I learned to drive in a '51 F-1 1/2 ton. There was a blazin' 100 HP in that Flathead 8... I got it up to 90 once on Hwy. 9 going down a slight grade... I didn't realize until later on in life that I was undoubtedly risking my life. No seatbelts, plus... what if a tire had blown?

Lots of rattles.

Old man bought it for less than $200, IIRC... it had been a grocery store delivery truck in Rockingham, NC I think.

He and I would go to pick up hay for my sister's horses and we'd pack that bed 2-4 feet higher than the cab with those bales. It had truck tires all the way around on 16" wheels... larger tires on back. It was pretty squirrely when loaded up that much.

It's a one-ton F-3. The numeral indicates the capacity. F=1 = 1/2 ton, f=2 3/4 ton, F-3 1 ton, etc..
I don't get the point of fake "patina," but that's been covered in another thread.

It's great for trips to Goodwill to pick up $$$ Italian designer shoes for $10 a pair! It fits right in with the crowd.

Hey with a few $s and a tow strap you could round up a bunch of old trucks like that with real patina. Just within a few miles of where I'm staying here in the high desert of northern Az. They are all over the place.

I like the old studabakers, almost look like chopped tops right from the factory.

I do like the nostalgic feel of the old trucks. But remember driving a few of them way back when. And wouldn't want to deal with modern traffic in one now.

Cheers Richard

Do you mean that this one has fake 'patina' ? What are the indications?

It's a judgement call. I may be wrong. There seems to be two totally different kinds of "patina" present.

The smooth edges, paint damage due to dents, and subtle color changes on the fenders look authentic to me.




The jagged edges, abrupt changes near the panel edges, and strange way the paint is worn through doesn't look like anything that wind or sun would have done. Just MHO.

So rather as if the paint on the top surfaces was removed with a buffer? I have no idea either way - just curious.

Removed some paint and painted that way intentionally. Sort of like faux painting a wall in your house.

That's a pretty crude job. Probably done with a sander. A buffer would likely do a better job.

I've seen some great looking old trucks with patina, this isn't one of them.

Here is what "patina" actually means:

The VW crowd here does the faux patina and I just don't get it.
