For sale: '54 F100 Customer Booklet

I found a really neat booklet this weekend that I picked up `cuz I
figured someone with a '54 F100 would be interested in it.

The booklet is called "CLUES to Successful Truck Operation". I
never saw on before and don't know much about it - but it caught my
eye when I saw it. I really wished it covered the year of my truck.
I will attempt to describe a little bit of it. It is a 23 page color
brochure put out in July-August 1954 by the FoMoCo that was sent out
in the mail to '54 Ford owners (based on the "US Postage - Paid
Detroit, Mich." Stamp on it.) It is in excellent condition.

It has neat articles and just about every page has photos. A few articles are:
Ford trucks used on the farm, for "Saturday night dating" , and an article on
the "World's most powerful Pickup" and how they proved it by towing a
ship!

There's plenty more articles and if you'd like to know more about
this booklet then email me off-list_. I could probably scan a
couple of the pages to send you if you're interested_.. but please
don't ask me to scan all 25 pages (with the cover) - that would be a
BIG file to send! ;-)

Later,

Well, the rumblings about "reformulated gasoline" are getting louder.
Seems we've set some records for EPA violations here in Birmingham.

So, I'm wondering what is in store for us with high perf engines, soon
to be high perf engines and just older engines...

What is this stuff made of, octane ratings and what is the general no
good it's gonna due for probably a higher price.

California guys, Nevada guys and all your clear air breathers, what
say ??? Give me some info

If you can't see the air, how can you trust it ?????????

I have a 47 Ford Truck that's been redone by someone before me. About
the only thing left stock is the body. I must say I've owned my share of
"projects" but had never seen one of these before. What I'm looking for is
a picture of how it looked new. Or even some ideas of what I might do for
the front grille which right now is just a big rectangular hole with
several vertical sheet metal bars in it. I think some kind of grille cover
must've been attached to it (?). Anyway, something's missing. I was
thinking about going with tubular horizontal chrome grille bars after
removing the verticals. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

In a past digest there was a link to a very humorus web page, concerning
pickup trucks. Could you repost that link or E-mail me the web address?
I have suffered a computer burp that wiped out most of my bookmarks.
Thanks..

Geff King, one of the list members made this page. The
"High-Speed Characteristics of Pickup Trucks" article is
extremely funny and I hope everyone here enjoys it as
much as I did.

I'd like to change to 5" bolt pattern my IFS suspension on my 56 Ford. I
currently have a 77 camaro IFS suspension on it. Does anybody know if this
change will affect the stability & alignment of the suspension and what kind
of car or truck will be best to be used as a donor for this change? The
reason for this is because I will like to install a set of nice wheels from a
Chevy truck that are sitting in my garage. I also have a 9" rearend in the
56 and the bolt pattern will also have to be changed. Any suggestions will
be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Joe
