1948-1952 3 speed floor shifter

Looking for the shifter for a 1948 - 1952 floor shifted pickup truck with a 3 speed transmission. I have the transmission but I need just the shifter.
Thanks.

Re: Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

Yep, that's the one I need. Plus all of the components inside the cab. It is sort of hokey, but that's kinda why I like it so much. Sort of like vacuum wipers. Adds to the charm of the truck. :)

Re: Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

I believe the one I need would have the motor outside of the cab under the fender connected to the box inside via a flange.
I will contact you if I find that the fresh air metal parts would be...

Re: Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

Thanks fortyniner. I reached out to him through an email and after a few days now, I have heard nothing from him. So, I am hoping there is someone else out there that can help me.

Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

I found evidence that my 1948 f1 originally had a deluxe heater in it. I would like to know if anyone might have a line on a complete unit that would be for sale. I wanted to post it here because I...

Re: 1948 F1 rear glass dimensions

I actually have the glass that I removed from the truck. The problem is when I place it in the window opening, there is about 3/4" space all the way around the glass. The seal was not original and...

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

Yes, I received plenty of suggestions, but not one from a person that actually used the kit.
That's what I'm looking for. If someone actually uses something, then they can be a source of opinion on...

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

So, all I ever wanted was for someone to let me know if they have PERSONALLY used a kit,which one was it and how did they like it. I don't how these threads get so off base from where they start.

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

So, the two companies mentioned in that old thread are both out of business. Has anyone used a kit from a company that is still in business. That would be very helpful.

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, Mid Fifties doesn't really have a bed wood kit for a 1948. It lists a so called kit, but with a very vague description and no photos at all. You really can't tell just...
