I wouldn't mind having a 55. But it would need more than just a frame and body...

Don't let that thing be scrapped. I have a rebuildable 2F you could put in it.

I agree. That is a more than salvageable truck. If it weren't under about a few feet of snow, I could probably talk the :Princess: into letting someone store it on our property for a little while.

SOOOO wish I had a shop built in CO right now. (of course, the house comes first)

I even thought about this one, but it looks like a lot of work. :(

I can't afford it and don't have the room but I offer my help to anybody willing to save this from the crusher. I could help retrieve it and would even offer my trailer to haul it (my tow rig is down, though). Somebody please save it!

Where is it located? Norwood? I'm not sure I even have the time to go get it.

If someone buys I can help deliver. It is in my shop in Telluride.

You know, I am really tempted. But looking at the frame I would want to swap the tub over to a different frame. It looks like an awful lot of work and I just don't have it in me. :(

I understand Chris, if you change your mind let me know. I do have a 3rd frame with all the 2f mounts, it can be yours 2 if it helps make a deal!

Well, I could probably get it up here, TJ, but I just don't have the time to work on it. I have been pining for my old 55 and 40s, though. :eek:
