Ford V8 Truck For Sale (1950)

1950 Ford V8 Truck
I have for sale my 1950 Ford V8 truck. This truck was originally built in Ireland in the Ford Factory in Cork. It was used by a county council as a truck to carry Tar for many years.

A full cab off restoration was started about 8 years ago by an experienced Ford mechanic who spent 40years working on Fords. This truck has a BRAND NEW French V8 engine in it. (That I have been previously been offered ?6,000 for!)
The engine came out of a vacuum sealed steal box before it went into the truck and the truck hasn’t done 5 miles since the new engine was put into it. This really is a one off truck to come across.

The seats have been recovered in a brown vinyl, it is in fair condition.

The roof cloth/board has been replaced inside but has warped over time unfortunately. The floor in the truck is solid, completely pained and like new! Body:
Every panel has been taken off this truck during restoration and painted and repaired where required.

The cab is finished in red and the steps are black with a cream grille at the front. Chassis and underneath:
The chassis is solid, it has been repainted during restoration but i fear it is lacking in paint. to make an A1 job it could do with a repaint or maybe just some elbow grease to shine it up! Engine:
The Engine is running like a watch but that is to be expected with a new engine, it has different more modern distributor that allows the truck to be converted to 12V with ease.

There is minimal amounts of chrome on the truck but any that is I would rate as in fair condition. Registration:
The truck is registered on its original Irish plates so if going to the UK would need to be an age related number got from the DVLA. Recent work carried out while being restored:
Nut and bolt complete strip down
new interior
new engine
gearbox overhauled

Work to complete restoration:
this is solely in my opinion what it will take to complete.
brakes adjusted
interior (roof cloth/board) repaired
new rubber matting or carpet on the floors
mud guards on the rear
**The truck will come with its original Ford Engine also for rebuild or to just maintain the original engine with the Truck The truck is complete in my opinion, bar a few things i noticed missing. Window wipers, 2 panels on either door on the inside, rear mud guards, rear lights.

There may be a few other minor bits but nothing major.
