1953 Ford F-800 For Sale (7-1-17 – – 17-29)

Unfortunately, due to my physical problems and losing space to store it I’m having to sell my 1953 Ford F800 Fire truck. I have owned this truck for almost 9 years and have enjoyed taking it to car shows. The truck just had the heads serviced last year by a machine shop in Kirkville as the head gaskets were leaking. New gaskets and thermostat, hoses installed. I had gone through the carburetor and was getting ready to set the timing when a rectifier had burned up in the charging system. I had a custom Alternator built but now needs to be installed. The truck is running but running on just the battery. Have lots of extra parts, 2 extra tires and manuals to go
with her. Hoping to find a home that can continue preserving a piece of history. Very rare to find a F800 model as most trucks of this age are light duty trucks. Has 28,535 original miles on it as the fire department I bought it from only covered a 2 to 3 mile radius. Powered by a Lincoln 317 cu in V8 mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Selling as is for $6000. Contact Bill at 315-416-7589 or Email
