Description for Ford Other Pickups 1959

Ran out of interest and money for this project.
Seems like everyone want the vintage shortbed pickups. This is an original shortbed pickup and it has the smaller rear window not the wrap around. Grille is very good and it has all the original badges and emblems including all 4 original hubcaps.
It started and ran when I first got it, but it ran very rough due to some burned valves. That is the reason for the heads being fully rebuilt
Bought this at an auction in Washington State. I just paid to have the heads rebuilt and also hot tanked intake and cleaned carb. Have not started it since heads rebuilt. Believe engine is original F series 292 Y block V8 with 4 speed manual transmission.
Odometer shows between 7/8 so assuming 81,608 miles, but have no idea whether original. Doubtful.
Because it came from Eastern Washington, I had to have a Vin Inspection by the Idaho DMV. They discovered the cab vin did not match the frame vin so the Idaho Title is branded for 3 years and then the branding is removed from the title. It is a clean Idaho Title not salvaged, just branded temporarily. The inspector assumes that the original cab was damaged and was replaced with a similar one. See photo of Idaho Title.
Overall the 59 is in quite good condition for being 61 years old. The body has no major dents or dings. It has been repainted multiple times. I see no rust in the rockers or at cap corners or at the rear of the front and rear fenders, but it is in a tight area to examine well. It does have a good tailgate that is in gray primer, but not shown.
Bed is in above average condition. Most old farm truck beds were used and abused, but this one is good.
It does have rust on both the driver’s side and on the passenger’s side floor about the size of a hardball. These floors are pretty easy to fix since it is just straight steel with no pattern. The cardboard headliner is gone and the inner roof has rust. I can see where some old bondo has cracked in a few areas on the body, but overall a pretty straight old truck.
Here are the current NADA values for the 1959 Ford short Styleside 2WD pickup
Original MSRP $1,948
Low Retail $14,550
Average Retail $27,800
High Retail $63,800 Show truck
The collector market is hot for vintage pickups presently.
Have it priced at about 50% of low retail. It is already loaded on my car trailer and will deliver it free in a 50-mile radius from Nampa. May deliver further for expenses.
It is going on eBay tomorrow and I will see what kind of interest it might have nationally. Prefer you see and inspect completely in person before making offer.
Ideal project truck with lots of upside. I included a picture of the red 1958 I owned with a 1959 grille.

Will add Buy It Now price, if your offer is acceptable.
