Yard art or the perfect project: ’69 F-550 Wrecker

Isn’t the internet a magical place? You’re always one click away from blowing your entire paycheck on car parts, 1500 live ladybugs on Amazon, GMG merch (shameless plug), or window shopping on eBay Motors. Let’s be honest, we’ve all gone down that internet rabbit hole. One second you’re shopping for your essentials online and then after a few clicks… BAM… you’re on the hub. The hub for classic cars that is, eBay Motors. Did you think I referring to something else?

 

Well, that’s exactly what happened to Richard Rawlings the other day as he was scouring the internet for his next purchase after picking up his latest buy, a 1970 F100. Enter, a 1969 Ford F-550 Wrecker that embodies true Americana. A big truck, the perfect amount of patina, and made to work. What more can you ask for?

This 1969 Ford F-550 is currently being auctioned off on eBay Motors with the current bid at only $500. As it sits, it turns over and sparks but it doesn’t run and the brakes are shot. Your significant other might not agree, but this wrecker is the perfect piece for yard art. Toss out your creepy lawn gnome and park this workhorse right in your front yard. Don’t quote us on this, but we think your Home Owners Association will thank you for sprucing up the neighborhood.
