Like an idiot, I made plans to be out of town this weekend, forgetting at
the time about the chat party. Now I'm going to miss it because I won't be
anyplace where I can get on line.
Everybody have a glass of virtual punch for me! I'll be in eastern
Tennessee. If I get up on one of those mountaintops and yelled real loud,
do you think you could hear me?

I have had the priveledge of meeeting a collector estorer of 52 Ford
trucks. This gentleman has an F1, F2, and F3 Marmon-Herrington 4X4's
all restored to better that factory original. He also is cuurently
restoring a 52 4X4 Ranger, one of 35 made. I have hesitated to ask what
he believes they are worth, but I would estimate something in the
$12,000 range. I would treasure your project. That is one that I would
love to have for my own.

Subject: 59 f-100

no, the 59 is not rare, but it was the ugliest of the square f's 57-60.
really this is just an opinion as i have a 59 but it has a 58 big back
window cab(identical) and a 60 front end group(most chrome of the four) .
in my opinion the drawback to the 59 was the wire mesh insert in the front
of the hood behind the f. o.r.d. letters. it was a natrural bug catcher and
there is no way to keep it looking nice. i still like all old fords, cars
and trucks.

as fer yur 223, you were told, you can rebuild, replace with any ford six
or eight, or for that matter with a chevy like i did
( i can hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth now). the point josh is we
have many vintage truck parts dealers at our disposal and the beauty of it
is you can do what you want. asd an american what do YOU want to do. if you
do it like i think you should then it won't be yours will it? You decide and
no matter how foolish or right on someone else thinks it is YOU are the one
that will have to live with it. do it YOUR way. there are enough different
ways that have been done here already that the big challenge would be to do
someting none of us have done before. watch the list for what other people
have done or go to a car or truck show and pick up some ideas. then ask them
how they did it. OR get some paper and write down yur own dreams and then DO
IT.

call me an instigator but what is yur great love for this 40 year old
syncromesh 3 speed. despite what you may have heard ford didn't even think
much of it and built a better one as soon as they could.

Subject: tailgates

I have in St. Paul MN a 1959 F100 4X4 with 292. The Truck was originally
from Wyoming. I got it as a project. The Truck underwent complete
restoration from frame up. The frame and drive line is assembled and the
Body is sandblasted. All the parts are here most of them new. The box is not
a step side but has a step side Tailgate.
In order to keep my family life in tact I consider selling the project.
If inter rested please contact Thomas durag.com
Thank you
TK

wish i had the bucks but i'm truck poor now and i certainly don't need any
family problems over old vehicles. got enough of those too. but i do have a
question about tailgates. i have a step and when i was looking for a
tailgate a guy with a fleet told me he would sell me one he had. i said ,
no, i need one for a step. he said they are the same. i didn't believe him
at the time but as i have both types of bed now i just went out and
measured. they are both 4'3" wide and for the life of me they look
identical. plus it would seem awful strange that ford woulf go to all of the
trouble and expense to make two different tailgates the same size. does
anyone out there have any facts that could clear this up?

Subject: '48 Ford Question

Joshua,

Look in the Southwest US for your project truck. You can easily find
something in much better shape than that '48 for a couple of thousand
or less. It will cost much more than that to restore the one you
describe. Also check the frame carefully, a rotten frame could sink a
good project.

Subject: RE: Bolt on HP for Y blocks

Ben,

Don't do it. Yank the Y block and put a 460 or similar late model
that you can get parts for. Souping up a Y block will do little for a
heavy truck and cost much.

Anniversary...
2nd week in January will be Ford Truck Enthusiast's 1st year
anniversary. I would like to invite everyone to join Peggy
and I on the chat page of the web site on Sunday, January 18th
from 8pm Eastern time to 10pm Eastern time to chat with each
other as a "net party" to celebrate. Bring your memories,
especially the members who were here early on (remember the
great Slick 50 flame war?).

Sorry about the last post saying it was Saturday. I got my
dates mixed up.

I used adapters on the front to match the new rears. They have not given me
any trouble. I don't like the thought of having 2 bolt patterns on the sam
vehicle. It kind of messes up the spare tire scenario.
