Description 1948 Ford Other

 This truck is being relisted because of a winning bidder that was unable to fulfill the terms of the auction. Please, do not bid if you do not have the money to buy, want to make payments or are otherwise unable to purchase the truck.
I am also including another 1948 Ford F5 COE cab. This is a very solid and complete cab that will put you miles ahead in the restoration of this truck. See pictures.
This is an extremely rare, 1948 Ford F5 cabover truck. It was fitted with a crewcab conversion when new. The cab is stretched and features a rear door on the passenger side with a full bench seat in the second row. There is no rear door on the drivers side. The extended cab structure is made primarily of wood. The third door frame is also wood. As you can see, the hinges in the third door have pulled from the wood and will not let the door shut completely.
Additionally, the truck features a rare, Coleman AWD / 4WD system. This is a Front Wheel Drive conversion with the option of true 4 wheel drive.
The truck has a flathead V8 and a 4 speed transmission with PTO that operates both 10000 lb winches mounted in the bed of the truck.
The truck appears very complete but does have rust. The rust is extensive through the floor, pillar and front hood/fender areas, as well as in the service box.
The previous owner claimed to have the truck running as recently as 2005. I have not tried to start the truck.
The tires hold air and it rolls and steers freely.
I do have the battery cover/step for the passenger side
The truck is approximately 22' long, 9' tall and 8' wide (not measuring the boom) and 9000 pounds
The previous owner lost the vehicle title and, due to the age of the title, it was purged from the system in the State of Washington. The truck is being sold with a bill of sale only.
As for the history of the truck, this is what I was told by the previous owner. The truck was specifically built for use by The U.S. Coast Guard. It began duty in Oregon and served as a telecommunications repair and maintenance truck on the Oregon Coast. In 1965, the previous owner bought the truck at a surplus sale and transported it north to his home on the Washington coast. He continued to use the truck for a period of time before essentially parking the truck in the 80's. He started and moved the truck periodically since then but parked the truck for the last time around 2005.
Truck is located in Hope, Idaho 83836. Buyer is responsible for picking up and shipping the truck. I can assist in loading.
Truck can be stored on site for up to 4 weeks to arrange shipping, $150 per month storage fee, after that
Payment is due in full within 7 days of auction end by cash or certified check unless otherwise arranged. NO PAYPAL
Will sell to U.S. buyers only, no International bidders.
Feel free to ask any questions regarding the truck by email or 208-946-1879.
