If it's the original flathead I think it should be green. Also known as Ford
green. So I've been told. Just passing it on. Good luck.

You can buy the 2 part epoxy coating for boxlines and the non slip at auto
parts stores and do it yourself for a small job like this. Either spray or
brush on. Sounds like a good idea. Other choice would be the steps you
can buy from most Ford restoration suppliers. I have experience with
powder coating on motorcycle frames and while durable I don't think it
would look good for long where you step on the running boards.

Look at for information on
what color the engine should be. For a 1952 truck it says green. There's no
information about the air cleaner and oil filter canister. I agree with Sam
about the black oil filter canister and think he is also right about the
gray air cleaner (based on one engine I saw for sale at a swap meet where
the block and oil filter had been repainted but the air filter looks kinda
gray). This picture is at (obviously
the block in this picture is "bronze", not green).

The hood on my F4 doesn't close full. I hear this is a common problem. Is
it weak springs or an adjustment on the rear arms? Thanks

I bought a radio for my '49 last summer from a radio dealer at the Iola swap
meet. He had one for a truck and didn't know what it was for, it had a
beige face plate with six buttons. The first button turns the radio off and
on, the right knob adjust the quality from news,music and speech. He also
had three radios he had tagged for a '48 Mercury car that looked identical
but had a chrome face plate and the mounting brackets on the side were a
little different. With a little fabrication the Merc radio would fit. The
'49 car radio is different than the truck, it has five buttons, I think the
face plate profile is different too.

Good luck,
Bob Jones

Found this in the Grass Valley, CA paper:

'40 Ford 1/2 ton pu, 4x4, Pwr take-off, new tires & brakes
327 Corvette engine, excellent shape $11,950 530-372-1711

About 30 miles east of Sacramento.

Don't know anything else about it, just strange enough to
pass on to this FTE group!
