Do any of you think there is a market for mail order/walkin Ford/GM truck parts from mid 50's to 73 in Southern California?

Was thinking of selling NOS/repro/ and used parts.

Any thoughts?

I've got a '68 F100 with the 360 and I've converted it to a 4bbl setup. I found an original cast intake in a junkyard for $50 that worked just fine (be sure to get it tanked at a machine shop if you do this). It came off a '65 something; it was in a swimming pool-sized pile of intakes. I have been told that it was a very lucky find, but I'm not sure really. If you want aftermarket, Edelbrock makes the Performer FE aluminum intake but it is quite expensive. The Edelbrock is supposed to be an excellent choice, however. I topped off the intake with an Edelbrock 1406 (600cfm) and I get 10-11mpg around town with 106,000 on my engine.

One last thing-the doors from '67-'72 will work fine on your truck. Be aware that the '67 doors do not use pop-up locks like modern doors; instead, there is a large door handle (looks like a window crank, sort of) that you push down to lock. I loved this on my '67 and was going to put those doors on my '68 except that they were damaged too badly.

Hey I've got a 93 Explorer Sport which has been lifted 4 inches and sits on 31inch tires. I've built several web pages in my time and one of them is dedicated to my explorer and the other more inportantly to vehicles in general...

Recently I've had a flux of new vehicles. most being cars. I would like to see more trucks out on this page. And namely Fords. And that is where this posting is comming in.
If you would like to add your truck to this site please inform me. You can visit the site at "http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.geocities.com/Motorcity/Downs/2212/" or follow this Link. You may reply to this e-mail or e-mail me at thevehiclelist geocities.com

Yes! I need a headliner + frame and the inserts for the armrests for my '73 F100!

My Father-in-law had a '64 F... with a blown engine. Always told me he wouldn't part with it. Was going to rebuild the motor, one day.

This doesnt have anything to do with a 67 F100, but what I do on my ranger is pull the fuse for the ignition before i park it for the night, or any place else where i know im going to be for a while.

Don't lock your vehicle. They are going to get in anyway. I once had a $250 convertible top slashed to steal a $50 8-track tape player. (Yes it was that long ago.) The only time I lock my truck is if I have a firearm in the vehicle and that is only to protect myself from the FBI and lawsuits.

If you don't know how to do it, then you better start taking reading lessons.

If you are still unable to remove yourself then Browse Ken Payne's (the moderator) web site for instructions or as a LAST RESORT send email directly to him or some of the other newsgroup members.

Definately! Southern Cal seems to be a big restoration area in the US. 67-72 trucks are starting to get popular and 53-56 are hugely popular. This isn't from first hand experience though, just from what I read in the rags (I frequent about 6 different ones) plus from talking to people at the shows.

First of all its not junk, its a Ford Truck Enthusiast list.
Second, either you or someone out to get you subscribed you to it since the only way to get on the list is by manually sending email to the listserver. Third, its administered automatically by an offsite server, I cannot take you off.
You must take yourself off. Send email to list-request lofcom.com with the following in the BODY (not subject) of the message:

UNSUBSCRIBE FORDTRUCKS
UNSUBSCRIBE FORDTRUCKS-DIGEST

Just be glad its not a Linux list, you'd get about 500 messages a day.

Sorry for any trouble it caused you. See if you can track down who subscribed you and I'll send a message to your postmaster regarding it.

Ford actually had airbags in the early 60's but they where worried about the force of the bag injuring occupants (a'la modern bags injuring children?) so they didn't place them in cars.

Hey Guys,

Anybody got any dates for the Pigeon Forge Show. Got mother-in-law in Chattanoga almost due for visiting and might be a good diversion during trip.

Also still looking for help on two issues with 1995 F-250 PowerStroke.

1) Extreme musty smell when A/C has been ran and then truck parked for several hours. (Dealer has pulled condenser and cleaned....they said)

2) Squealing serpentine belt until engine warm. Is this a sign of the problem I heard about idler pulleys or just a thing to live with.

Steve, thanks for the info - sounds like a Godsend! My first car - ever - was a '55 F1. It was hardly cherry, with a 289 v-8/auto and enough holes in the floorpan to estimate my speed by counting the dashed lines as they sped by underneath. I bought this F6 in a fit of nostalgia, and to reward myself for finally finishing my Master's. Dad had to show me how to open the hood!
(He practically learned to drive on 'em.) I had no idea finding NOS/repro.
parts would be such a challenge, & my wife is not real fond of filling up the garage and driveway with parts trucks. Hope I can return the favor some day!

Having watched the on going debate over ratings I dug into my archives and found my dealers truck handbook. This gem lists everything about Ford trucks for 1956. I quote, payload ratingsf100-2050lbs. f250-3970, f-350-6515,f500-10495, f600-12980. This should help dismiss any misinterpatations of what the model number stood for. This book is a dealer hand book for options, tire sizes, performance tables and technical data. I managed to find it at alocal flea market. hope this helps.

Also, the early feb archives *really* are up today. Seems that although I uploaded the archives to the site I forgot the link to it! I noticed it while browsing the site from a friends computer and it now works correctly.

Early Feb (1-15) archives are now on the web site. Seems that I forgot to upload the link to them when I uploaded the archives.
Sorry if this caused any confusion. Early March should be up soon and late January when I'm done editing the emails (these postings are from before we used the listserver so there are no digests to simply zip up into an archive).

In addition, I fixed a few fonts on the site. Got to see the pages with Internet Explorer for the first time (I use Netscape) and the fonts weren't always the same. I've changed the HTML font tags on several pages so that the look is consistant regardless of your browser. This should also take care of any PC/MAC differences.

Please note that you'll need a HTML 2.0+ capable browser to see the full effect of the web pages (tables, animated GIFs, the world image map on the suppliers section, etc). Internet Explorer 2.0 or greater, Netscape Navigator 2.0 or greater are two examples of HTML 2.0+ browsers. Let me know if you use a different browser and you experience anything bizarre.

Thanks!
