Preserved 1947 Federal 16M stakebed for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller’s description:
Hercules JXE3 Flathead 6 Cylinder
Odometer reads 9000 miles
Truck runs and drives
Carries good oil pressure
Have to top off the brake fluid every so often
Drivers side fender has dent
Front bumper looks to have taken an impact on drivers side
Truck has no rust issues
The gentleman from whom I bought this truck, said the truck had always been in the shed for as long as he could remember.
He said his Grandfather was the original owner.
He said Gramps would occasionally get it out and wash/wax it.
He said as far as he knew the truck had never been painted,
and the mileage on the odometer (9000) is correct.
I have no way of knowing if the odometer is correct,
but the interior of the truck presents extremely well.
Gramps did paint the exterior of the bed with a brush, and he did get some drips of paint on some of the surrounding areas.
The bed on the truck is stationary
Wheelbase measures 15′ (180″)
Measures 13′ 11″ (167″) from back of cab to end of frame
Overall this Federal is a nice example
The truck was sitting for several years prior to me buying it
It will probably need things like belts, hoses, brake work, etc
The tires all hold air, but they are old
No rust issues
