Subject: Running Boards

I had my running boards painted like the rest of my truck - in pieces, still
waiting to be assembled.

I am thinking about having the raised runners on the boards coated with the
sprayed-in bed-liner material, such as rhino-liner, etc. I have been very
pleased with my sprayed-in liner in my F-150, and think it would be durable
in the running board application. Has anyone tried this?

1955 F-100 short bed. No running boards or grill.
Need to sell a fairly straight project, no engine or trans, all glass is
there. On a trailer right now, can deliver within a hundred miles or so
of Lakeport CA.

Yes I did and had the carborundum grit sprinkled on for slippage. It works great. The only thing is that stuff fades in the sun. I would recommend painting it a similar color to keep it vivid. I was thinking of doing the same thing to my chrome ones now as they are about 8 years old and slippery when wet.

The white paint on the upper area of the cab was a two tone paint option. I have a 55 panel truck with this option.
The stainless trim for the big back window cab is available from one of the truck shops out of California I think it might be Bobs F100 or something similar. I saw an article last year or so in Custom Classic trucks on this product. I'll try to find the article to verify who makes this.

Subject: bucket seats


I would like to install bucket seats with console in my 55 F-100, but
not real sure what kind to use. Most of the trucks in my magazines have
beanch seats, and the ones with buckets don't really tell you what they
came out of. The junk yard loaned me a set out of a Ford Probe, just to
see how they would fit. They looked OK, but not great. I don't want a
seat that has a high back, because I don't like to see the back of the
seat sitting up in the back window. Like to hear from anyone with any
suggestions on year and models for bucket seats.

Subject: '53 radio

I just bought another '53 F-350 flatbed/ dually for parts from a guy in West Virginia, & there is a big square
radio under the driver's dash. There's also a flat plate with knobs on it where the steering column hooks to the
dash that the guy said may be radio knobs. Does anybody know of these, original accessory or not? Are the knobs
even radio knobs? I haven't brought the truck home yet, so I can't follow the wires to see where they lead.
I did see a '53, (at least advertised as), radio with a round dail on ebay. I'm guessing that this may be a car
radio, right/ wrong? Any info is appreciated.
I may have some extra F-350 parts for sale in the future if anybody is in need, but I won't know until I do a
better inventory of what I need.

Mark.

Charlie,

I used a 60/40 split bench from a late 80's early 90's Bu*ck in my 55. It's
not buckets but it gives me the individual control and has a nice arm rest.
It was an easy and clean installation as well. I even was able to use the
original mounting holes. I just had to fabricate some mounting brackets very
simple task. And the drivers side is 6 way power. They do have headrests but
they are removable and don't stick up to high.

I know that the 'D' indicates the 1970's so 'D8' means 1978 (but that
casting number just indicates when the part was designed, not when it was
made). I'm no sure what else beyond that. Previously
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.wrljet.com/engines would be the place to look, but the owner has
taken it off line.

Ken,
If you can locate a copy of the "Hotrodding/Rebuilding Your Small-Block
Ford" books at your local library or book store, they often have a listing
of casting numbers. As someone else noted, these casting numbers alone are
not proof positive of the year the heads were produced.
