Question: How much does it cost to restore a 1950 ford pickup?

I need to figure out an aprox. on what it will cost to restore a 1950 ford pickup and what it would be worth when done. including a rebuilt engine, paint and interior.

Depending upon the condition it's in currently you should expect to spend around 10 to 20,000 on a full restore and that's if you want it done properly. Now that's a full restore, inside and out. In fact, you can probably purchase one already restored for less than you will spend, plus save a huge headache. In fact I know where you can purchase a 1950 Ford 1/2 ton Pickup Street Rod 350/350, nice vinyl interior, Weld mag wheels, MOPAR Volarie torsion bar frontsuspension,
stereo, etc. for 12,500. Depending on the condition of your truck, I think this would be the less expensive way to go, unless you just want to restore it to pure stock condition, and still, it will cost you more than it would be valued at when completed.
