Terry wh - A stock 2wd 1952 F-3 has, as you know, 17" wheels with eight lugs that have what we call an "innie" hub cap mount. The wheels are Budd #49380/Ford #7RY 1007B, and have the widow maker Firestone RH-5° outer rim that few today will work on. To retain stock hub caps you have three options. They are 16" Kelsey-Hayes #31282/Ford #7RD 1015B, 17.5" Budd #70720/Ford #B6D 1015A, and 19.5" Budd #71410/Ford #B6D 1015B. I know of a guy that has available sets of the 17.5" and 19.5" varieties. I will post my email address below if you want contact info.
ObsoElitist - is your name Paul, or did you buy your truck from Paul? I've tried to get information about it since Paul posted about it on the FTE forum a year or more ago. It is a 1952 F-2 Marmon-Herrington 4x4 conversion. I have three like it, and what's left of two others. Paul posted on the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum looking for a steering column. I have an archive of F-2 and F-3 M-H trucks and asked Paul for the truck's data tag info and front axle number. It is a very unique truck. It should have, but doesn't presently have, Budd #47210 wheels that are 16"
with the 5 lug x 8" pattern. I would appreciate hearing from you to discuss your truck. My email is stu_sandymcmillan at sbcglobal dot net. Thanks. Stu
