Unless it has already been stripped, just the parts should be worth more than a few bucks.

A long time ago, 30 years or so, I went to the local city surplus auction. I could have bought a surplus large garbage truck for $100. It had a Detroit diesel in it. The Detroit started and ran. We could have had only to go to the dump every couple of months! I still bug my wife because she would not let me bid.

They were only for Canada, and I think only light duty pickups. If so, that chassis was overloaded.

Mercury trucks were sold in Canada. They are same basic truck as Ford, just different badges, trim and grilles. Same engines, chassis and sheetmetal. That one appears to be a 1-ton (maybe more?), with the dually wheels and the larger radius front fenders.

Better call Mike and Frank with "American Pickers"!

Especially if it has a bicycle on the back! I mean, this is rusty gold if I have ever seen it!

As others have said, it's a 4th-generation Canadian Ford truck; looks to be a 1963.

Being a 4th gen, and a cutaway at that, it's not a huge gold mine of potential; the badges and the steering wheel are the items of modest value for someone restoring one.

This looks like a job for Restoration Garage or Counts Cars.

I agree.
Much like Winnebagos & Itascas..... and the current crop of Monacos & HolidayRamblers.
