*MAKE A CASH OFFER AND BRING A TRAILER*

I am selling my beloved 1959 Ford F100. Pulled this one out of a barn down near Fredericksburg back in 2013. It had sat there since the 90's.

Originally belonging to an electrician, you can still see his shop sign painted on the sign of the doors. At some point, in the '80's, I believe, he painted over the phone number of the shop sign as he was no longer in business.

This "Fridge" was a 3-on-the-tree, but is not a floor-shift. All original parts for the truck, including the column-shift components are in a plastic bin in the bed of the truck. Looks lifted because it's on a handful of leafs due to it living out in the country on an unfinished dirt road.

Took us an afternoon to get this running again, but I drove her all over South Austin for several years, until we moved. I parked her in a garage down in Oak Hill in 2017, and that's where she's been since then. In 2021, I visited the private garage and started her right up with a new battery.

The Good:
- You can see it for yourself . . . she's beautiful!
- Has all the old parts we've replaced in the bed of the truck
- Runs & drives with assistance
- Actually vintage
- Original V8 291 (yeah? check the photos)
- NO RUST only patina, the cab corners + undercarriage are clean

The Bad:
- She smokes like my granny did (has an exhaust leak)
- Will not start the minute you get there (you're going to need to cuddle a bit and she likes starting fluid)
- Has to be towed out of the easily accessible garage (bring car dollies)

Preferred scenario is you're a cash buyer that doesn't need to be handheld, as I am in Asia and will not return. Access to the garage where she is parked (seen in pics) will be provided, on late-afternoon weekdays, or late morning weekends. You will have to dolly her out of the garage, through a porte-cochere, and down the driveway a bit to load on trailer. I can have an experienced shop manager meet you with plenty of heads up. The shop manager will collect the cash, and provide the key, clean title, and signed Bill of Sale.

*When you drive her, be prepared to stop a lot and let people take photos and ask questions.*
