> Another good report from Pigeon Forge. What a great show, well run, awesome trucks, and real nice people. What a thrill to drive my truck in the parade, just got it done in time to take it to the show. I also liked meeting some of the people from FTE, Ken, Don, and Glenn, who went with me on the parade. Thanks again to Tammy (Glenn's wife) for helping me with my daughter, she is still talking about Jayna and Curtis. Looking forward to next year and being more involved with FTE through the year.
PS thanks to Don for advice on my fan shroud, it fit well with a little trimming around lower rad. hose and removing fan spacer,think it cured my overheat problem too.

I've got two water leaks at the lower corners of my '50 windshield. I'm
thinking about seeing if the over-the-counter tube of goop will do any
good. Has anybody used this stuff with any luck? Any recommendations?

I'm probably going to Carlisle truck show , can't make it to all Ford show. I'm about an hour from Carlisle so I've been going to the spring ,summer ,and fall shows off and on for about 15 years.It seems every year there are more knick-knacks and crafts,etc. to sift through to get to the parts, I might stick to the specific shows from now on.
PS sorry about yesterday's posting ,did'nt mean to regurgitate a days worth of postings , still a little new with this e-mail stuff

Walking and looking at the trucks at P.F. this year got me to thinking
about bed covers and storage for a trip.. I don't care for the snap down
covers, I lean more toward the looks of the hard hinged covers..... anyone
know of a supplier for a '53-56. I guess I could build one, but not as
nice as some I saw... any suggestions,stories good or bad ???

John, I'm sure if you check some classic truck mags there is a
company making hardtops for "Classic" trucks. Claims only ones
that have them. I have seen them in my "Auto/Truck Round-up"
but don't have mag home with me now. I can get address if you
can't find in mags in store.

John,

Custom Classic Trucks advertises Gaylords at WWW.Gaylordslids.com. I built
my own for my 55 that fits flush with the bed. Used MDO plywood and vinyl.
If your interested mail me offline at DMO1 pge.com. You can see the cover
at the website under the 1955 F100. Mines the red one with the black
scallops.

Subject: Radiator Question
Date: Thu, 25 May 2000 14:29:22 -0700

I have a '50 F-2 and am planning to keep the flathead. It will be mildly
souped and I'll have a C4 automatic and an 8" rearend (3.0:1) behind it. My
original radiator is pretty well shot. When I took it to several places to
see about getting it repaired, I got quotes between $350 and $400. I talked
with the folks at U.S. Radiator in LA and they said they could provide me
with one of their "Triple Flow" radiators for $330 including shipping. Does
anyone have any experience with U.S. Radiator? Any thoughts, suggestions,
or alternatives are welcome.

Thanks,
Roy

If anyone knows which F1 & F100s won the awards for best of show I would

Related thought: Is there a website by Pat Ford which would have this

Subject: What vintage is it?

I have been keeping an eye out for a newer Ford truck
chasis to put my 48 F6 cab on. I found a really
interesting truck while on a trip (500 miles from
home). I believe the cab, chassis, and bed are from
three different vintages of Ford trucks. The cab (and
the title) are 1983. The bed is almost identical to
the one I saw on an original 57, single wall sides and
tailgate w/ externial fenders. The tailgate has cam
latches on the top to hold it closed. The 57 has
'FORD' stamped in letters about 3" high, the bed in
question has letters about 6" high. My guess is the
bed is bed is very late 50's or early 60's.

The engine is an in line 6, but doesn't look like the
300CID I would have expected for an 83. It looks
shorter than the 300 and the valve cover was red. The
front suspension is twin I-Beam, but the I-Beams
looked like stamped steel rather than the cast
material of the mid 80's.

I know this isn't much to go on, but I would like some
opinions of the vintage of the chassis and bed before
I decide to buy it or not. The truck is somewhat
rough. Any help narrowing down the years would be
appreciated (too far away to check vin numbers in
advance of buying it.
Thanks,
Bob

Hello,

Can anyone help me? I am ready to bolt the flywheel, bellhousing, clutch and
tranny(3speed) to my '49 239 F1.
I need to know all the bolts and sizes and grade to do this.
