Ok so Im new, I did the intro, and I searched for an answer and haven't found much so if this has been covered I apologize in advance. I have a 1948 Ford F6, and I want to make it into an F1. I know from research here that the cabs are the same, fenders will have to be changed, and obviously a different frame. I have the original 8BA flathead I would like to use if it checks out (seized up). I have located an original F1 frame from a '49 about an hours drive from me, he says it has original front suspension/axle and a ford 9" in the rear. He is asking $500.00 for everything.(Think it had running boards as well). So I guess I want to know if this is a fair price as I have yet to find another F1 frame for sale anywhere else somewhat close to me. Also am I just wasting my time going from F6 to F1 as I will need a lot more parts (front fenders/bed/rear fenders etc.) I am somewhat sentimental to this truck as it was my grandfathers farm truck at one point, I just don't need this big ole thing as it sits. The other question is the legality of it all, Should I try to get a title/bill of sale with the frame so it is an F1 (assuming it has a VIN)? I don't know if anyone in the family even knows where the title is for the F6, my grandparents have passed so Im going to have to check around on that. Any advice is much appreciated.
