Subject: Horn Button

I know this is a small detail, but...

My 55 panel came with a horn button which says, I believe,"Ford" in
script, with 5 stars just under that horizontally.

I also have a horn button with the regular lightening bolt through the
gear pattern.

I have never seen the 5 star horn button in a catalogue, only the latter
one.

Does anyone know anything about this deal? I know it's not a major
topic, but it is interesting when you never see the piece you have as
available.

Thanks, Paul G.

Picked up a '47 - 3 ton truck yesterday for $500 in Sioux Lookout, Ontario.
I'm always on the hunt for parts-trucks, but this one is way too nice to
scavenge from. I'll be back to work (on the Sedan Delivery that is) for
the winter very soon as my paying employment takes it's seasonal sleep.
(Forest fires will be back in May)

Nicest thing about it is the interior - it is all there! The glass, kick
plates, headliner, seat and backrest... everything!
Even the instrument cluster is in excellent shape. The cab is in great
shape too. Even had the waterfall grille complete.

If you are looking for another truck and are not having much luck, don't
despair.

T H E Y A R E S T I L L O U T T H E R E !

There's a 50th Anniversary emblem on the my 53 F-250, too,
but only on the horn button, and nowhere else to be seen.
The dates inscribed on the button are: "1903-1953"

Web page www.classic truckshop. com has an informative article in their
projects section that covers installation of one wire alternators. It
also describes how to convert two wire alternators to a one wire unit.

Flathead Ford V8 History Page



The Flathead Ford V8 Page



These pages exist to help spread information about Ford's Flathead V8 in all its forms.
It is a non-commercial, free site dicated to preserving the history of the Ford flathead V-8.
Believed to be
the largest single collection of Ford flathead V-8 information on the World Wide Web, the site
provides
information on both stock and hotrod flatheads. There is a detailed timeline of flathead
development, and
an entire section devoted to the hotrodding process. You’ll also find a collection of vintage
advertisements, a readers’ rides section, links to other flathead and automotive resources, a
listing of
flathead vendors, and a new chat area to help you solve problems and get advice.

Why flatheads? Certainly not because they are new, high technology engines. Ford hasn't made any since 1953.
Not because everyone has one. I bet you can find many car enthusiasts that have never seen one.
Not because they make more power than anything else. There are many "modern" engines that make much more power.

No, I'm doing this because the flathead isn't all these things. It's old, it's strong, and most of all, it's cool.


Note: These pages will not be a graphics and special effects showcase.My goal is to get information out in a functional manner, mostly to speed downloading.Besides, almost all my vintage reference material is in B&W anyway.
Please see the notice at the bottom of the history page!

Subject: Otions

Hello All,

This is one of those want to know questions.
Does any know what options were available
on a 54 F100? I want mine stock but in the
end want all the options that were available
in that year. I may be able to get a side mount
tire off a 55, but if it was'nt offered in 54 I don't
want it. Also, I found a crome bird on the hood
of a ford truck at the junk yard. It was so badly
dismantled all I know was that it was 53 to 55.
What year was this offered?

Actually, these questions poped up after reading
the post on the horn button.

Thanks,
Rich
