Mark Ames,
I would like to see pictures of the '52 panel you have in classifieds.
Every time I try to e-mail you my message comes back as undeliverable. If
you could e-mail me some pictures I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Bob Jones

Subject: Need new carb

It's time to do something about the Holley 4180 on my 5.0. At the very
least it needs a rebuild, but the rebuild prices around here are pretty
close to the price of a new Edelbrock carb. Does anyone have experience
with the Edelbrock as opposed to the Holley 4-barrel? I really don't need
a carb designed for EGR or with purge ports, either, as far as that goes,
so maybe replace?

The Sunday Feb 13 "The Wheels of Time" section features "1948 Ford F-1
Half-Ton Pickup Truck."

The article: "The 1948 pickup represented Ford's truly new postwar design,
shared by all Ford trucks, from the basic F-1 pickup to the three ton F-8.
The cab was taller, wider, and longer compared with the previous year's
models. the design featured the return of the one-piece windshield and
included vent windows as well as a larger back window. headlights were
recessed into the grill area, the spare tire was placed underneath the
truck bed, and the hubcaps were taken from the 1947 Ford cars. The truck
came in five colors: vermillion, medium-luster black, meadow green, birch
gray, and chrome yellow, all with black wheels and running boards. Most
1948 models had a chrome grill, although the truck returned to painted
grills in later years. Ford advertised its new truck line as "bonus built"
trucks that would last 19.6 percent longer than its competitors. Ford sold
more trucks in the 1948 model year than it did in any year since 1929, when
the great Depression began, but the boost in sales still left sales behind
[Ch ** let] which also offered a brand-new postwar design."

"The Specs: Price ... $1212; Engine ... 226.4 cubic inch L-head six
cylinder; Horsepower ... 95 at 3300 RPM; Wheelbase ... 114 inches; Overall
Length ... 188.78 inches; Seating capacity ... 3"

"Historical Facts: Year ... 1948; President ... Harry S. Truman; Median
family income ... $3,187; Dow Jones industrial average ... 177.3; Academy
Award movie ... "Hamlet;" Milestone ... Bell Telephone develops the
transistor."

Neat huh? RAY '50 F-1

(Jeeze, to think I've multiplied the price by a bunch, tripled the
horsepower, nearly spent the median income in my last Sac Ford order, and
it still only seats three (skinny good friends).)

(I'll have the article with me at P-F.)

Ken,

I have had two carbs rebuilt due to the desire to keep
everything "pure stock".

It is a toss up. Some shops do a better job then others,
but if you are going to have it redone there are a few things
to think about.

Are you going to show? Then you want show plating.

If this is going to be a pure driver I would go with a new
carb. If you will be doing shows, look up Pony Carburetor
in Hemmings. They do an outstanding job.

Please, I need some help! I'm new at posting to this list, but I read
it everyday. You guys are very informative. My question is: What
rearend can I swap into my 55 F250, without changing spring mounts,
shock mounts etc.. The darned thing runs pretty good, but it's so low
geared, it jars your teeth at about 45 mph! I want a simple swap if
there is such a thing. Thanks!! Curt Morris 1955 Froggy
