I was curious to know what sort of mailer program this list is using as i am
building a
Vintage Auto - Truck Web site myself. Are you running this list off a
personal Server
or are you using a commercial elist site.

I have a 49 F5 former pump/tank truck. I intend to put a stake body on it. I just cut the stuff off and scrapped it. It's a lot of work but is "easy". Now I have a newly installed hydraulic hoist on it and am waiting for the money to put a repro stake body like the originals used.

Bill, concerning your question on 1956 Colonial White, I did a complete
research project, the original code number is M-2J-524, however paint and
updated codes with specifics can be obtained from Ed Spagnolo,
coloritemail.imcinternet.net COLOR-RITE REFINISHING CO, 868 Carrington Rd,
Rt 69, Bethany, CT 06524, 203-393-0240. They use Colonial White #8103 in
acrylic enamel, single stage urethane, or basecoat/clearcoat. Good luck.

Hello Folks:
I am having trouble trying to find the original color code (#) for the
off-white color associated with the 56 series. This was a stock color
usually on the front grill and the rims. Any help is greatly
appreciated.....
Thank you very much,
bill

There is a 52 F1 that I might part out. There is no engine, it used to have the
flathead in it. I was just wondering if there was enough interest for parts to make
this worth while. The truck is in Alberta.

Hello Scott. I would be interested in a set of 16" wheels, the front splash pan
(behind the front bumper and below the grill), a steering wheel in good condition, jack
and tools, plus headlight assembly with rims, and taillights. Oh, door handles and
hardware too if they're in good shape. Probably some other stuff too. Right sun
visor? I'm in Virginia...

Subject: inline six engine

Here is a question for you guys. Will a 1952, 215ci straight six
manifold be the same as a 223ci manifold? And are the carbs for the
215 and 223 the same and/or would they take the same gaskets?
Would like to hear what you guys think about this, as I don't know too
much about the inline 6's.
Scott

Subject: Re: small parts cleaning

Terry,... you bring up a great point. I did mention that I neutralize
the rust with Rasonil... It is a product that is very much the
consistancy of green water but it converts rust to a hard and
neutralized material. Just don't get it wet. It is a metal preparation
that serves as a good primer that can be sanded and paint adheres very
nicely. But,.. I can appreciate your observation about pleated areas or
spot welds.

I chuckle inside reading about your Midas friend. I too found
that my
metals rusted very quickly upon taking them out of the acid.... but,
just like when you have them dipped I've noticed it is a two to three
chemical processs to neuralize. Make note of that.. and never forget
it!! But, I can picture in my mind his shock for sure!! haha! BTW...
I flush off the acid with water and dry the part before applying the
Rasonil. I hope I didn't confuse anyone.

For those interested the product Rass-O'-Nil is made by
International
Chemical Products, Inc PO Box 4246, Huntsville, AL 35815-4246 USA. As
it says on the bottle: Chemically changes rust into a high-performance,
corrosion resistant primer-coating. Environmentally Safe, Non-flammable
and Water Soluable. One Step Metal Priming. Prevents Creeping of
Rust. I bought one gallon via the internet about a year ago... I recall
it to be approximate $80-90. It works very nicely and has a pleasant
smell to it. I just must warn that you have to keep it from being
exposed to water once coated otherwise it will rust. That's the one
drawback that I observed it has. But,... I've found that every product
has some drawback. But, if you paint it you solve that problem. Good
luck guys.

Bob,

I had a phone conversation several years ago with a guy in Michigan. (I
was considering the same thing) He had put a '56 body on a late 80's
Explorer frame. After talking a while it came out that he 'had' it done
and couldn't give me a lot of detail about body mounts, drive train, etc...
but it can be done. He took it to the dealer for service !!! You might
look in that era Explorer and do some measurements..

It shouldn't be too hard to find articles in back issues
of magazines on old trucks, covering an old-truck-to-
new-chassis mating. Unfortunately, they will probably
be dealing with F1* trucks and not the larger beasts.
