I know of two F1's, both in good shape, in Marfa, Texas. And one F2, the 3/4 ton version of the truck, featured in a previous AL post. Then there was the Mercury M-3, the Canadian truck in a 1-ton version, we came across in Nova Scotia last summer. All these trucks are from the late 1940s. Driving an F-1 or F-2 of that era is definitely a trip back in time: no synchromesh, of course, and it takes some serious handling to steer around a sharp street corner, even at 20 mph. Nimble is not the word. These trucks handle like, well, trucks.
