RealRides of WNY - 1952 Ford F-3

Check out the paint job on this 1952 Ford F-3— or should we say, lack-of paint job, Lol… I think it goes without saying that this old truck sat outside for a l-o-n-g time. The license plate (which has also lost all of its paint) on the back is a Kansas tag from 1965. I can’t believe that this truck made it all the way from Kansas to where we saw it parked recently in Tonawanda without crumbling to bits. Looking into the bed gives you an excellent view of the parking lot below. I will say though that the trim on both sides of the hood looks great. Stainless steel, perhaps? Ford called their Series F-3 one-ton trucks “The Light Duty Champs of Profitable Hauling.” This light duty champ is probably significantly lighter than it was when that Kansas plate was screwed on back in 1965. I’d love to know what the plans are for this truck.
