Barn Find 1955 Ford F-250 – Louisburg, KS


This 6,000 original mile 1956 Ford F-250 has been parked in a  barn for over 40 years.  The seller says their father, a dealership owner, originally purchased the car in in the 1970’s.  At that time, due to fading paint, the exterior was repainted.   Otherwise, the interior, including paint and upholstery, was left untouched.  In 1976 the seller says it drove like new when it was parked in his barn and it has not moved since.   Aside from a lot of dust the seller says the body is in good shape – doors are solid and do not sag – and the running boards are perfect.   The truck currently has a flat bed but the seller is offering a bed, tailgate and fenders.  Truck is located in Louisburg, KS and seller is asking $20,000.

In 1953 Ford introduced the 2nd generation of the Ford F-series.  The second generation introduced the naming convention that remains today (i.e. F-150 =1/2 ton, F-250 = 3/4 ton, etc).  The 2nd generation brought increased dimensions, improved engines, and an updated chassis.   The truck is equipped with a V8 (see picture above where this is prominently displayed on the grill) and a 4-speed manual transmission.   Check out the seller’s listing on Craigslist for full details and contact information.
