Seems to me that even with the title question, the '46 Panel in our For Sale listings is a heck of a deal for someone looking for a project.
Let's not be too harsh here ... the OP has set an ambitious goal so let's do what we can to help him achieve it. Be warned (OP), though, that it may take awhile. I believe there are $2,500 restoreable trucks out there to be found. Not many, to be sure. But if the OP is patient, willing to chase a lot of leads and just plain fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time with the right amount of cash in hand (and a trailer)... Fortune favors the bold, but a little preparedness doesn't hurt
I bet the truck he is looking for is going to be in an estate sale (or something) where it is in among a lot of other "treasures" that the heirs just want to clear out so they can sell the property to a developer. To find (and purchase) those trucks, you have to act quick, even without being able to do a complete survey of the truck.
Any other thoughts?
