Age Please I know horses not trucks???
could be a 47-53. They did not change the body style much at all those years. In 54 they changed that grill but it stayed almost identical for several years. Google it and there are many sites with photos. If it has been stored inside all those years it is probably in good condition body wise. Remember, back then cars were made of metal.
I dont’ know jack about horses except they are big and they bite so we’re even.
Thanks I was wanting to guess 48 but did not know for sure.
I was going to suggest about '46 to '48—but I’m not going to now…
Wasn’t that when you were a teenager??? ha. ha.
Man that was a long time ago.
That is when the metal was all metal and solid.
Marcel, I can’t remember being a teenager…whatever that is.
Come on now, Jae you remember that.
That is when you would get up to help your Father in the garage or basement before school.
That is when you had to go fill the kerosene 3 gallon glog, glog, container for your mother’s stove.
That is when you had to pick up the eggs before school.
That is when you had to do all those other chores for your Father before school.
That is when you had to walk to school, thank God I didn’t it was 13 miles.
That is when you went to school and work till nine o’clock to help with the chores.
That is when we had to stock up the basement with firewood.
That is when we worked for the next door neighbor after school to earn money to buy pencils.
You know what Jae;
By the time all these things were done I was eighteen years old.
Wow, I guess I was not a teenager also. ha. ha.
But I wouldn’t trade my youth for the world–it beats the heck out of the way kids are growing up today.
How true isn’t it.??
that truck has door window vents so must be 1951 model, if the door handles are push-button type then it is a 1952 or 1953, the 1954 model year went to a one piece windscreen and a different grille style.
Sorry Gerry, I can not remember the interior like you do. ha. ha. I was to young.
Too funny, I wasn’t even born back then, I am just enough of an old car nut to have gone and researched the answer :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I didn’t think you were after meeting you in Portland, Maine, but your hair told me that you might of been around in those times. ha. ha. After the Course you instructed on Manufactured Housing, which was great and excellent.

I was going to guess 1949, but I’m glad someone starting talking about cars, so I can show off my 55.
That’s a dandy, Keith. One of the more classic of the classics.
About time a Ford man showed up here, now that’s class!!!
Very nice Keith!!
I’m actually an E-type Jag man, and this is just a temporary pressure bandage to stop the bleeding. Long story, but an interesting one. I sold my 1960 XK 150 Jaguar to finance my books, and within a few weeks stumbled on this during an inspection; a true “barn find” that hadn’t been driven in years. It has a hard top, soft top, buffed up beautifully, runs like a dream (three-speed manual transmission with manual overdrive), and I damn near stole it. The seller was happy, even though I told him that it was worth more than he was asking, and now I’m happy, but looking to sell this an get a Jaguar E-type roadster.
Why did you hit me like a Jag Man.
You da Man Jag.
Go get it, you deserve it. ha. ha.
