Subject: headers

sanderson headers can tell you exactly what you need. They will need info.
about what front supension that you are using and steering box location. I
would think that the ford motorsport headers for a mustang would work very
easily. I used a set made for a ford bronco in my 55, but I did have to heat
the tubes and add a little more bend.

Subject: Wheel size

depends on what supension you have on the front and what rearend and the
flange to flange measurement on the rear, as well as if you tubbed the bed or
not.

Hey have you considered a 295/50R-15? The 275's are also nice but the =
295/50 looks oh so good stuffed in the back of a truck. It also has a =
slightly wider footprint for better cornering characteristics.

Tim,
I have heard that they are expensive, but Sanderson makes headers designed
specifically for your set-up. For the tires/wheels, I am not sure about the
backspacing, but I have been told that 235's (I think he said 235/75?) are the
biggest tires you can fit under the stock rear fenders. An easy way to be
able to fit more rubber on the rear would be to pick up a pair of 3" wider
than stock rear fenders from Gibbon's Fiberglass Reproductions.

Subject: custom cab

Can anybody tell me exactly what the differences are between a 56 custom
cab and a 56 regular cab. I have two trucks, and one has the custom cab
emblems on the door. As far as I can tell that is the only difference
(on my two trucks). However, that is assuming that there have not been
any upgrades in the last 40+ years.

Thanks, Dave S.

I just read the '53-'56 spotters guide from Custom & Classic Trucks and
they didn't seem to say what the difference was between a Custom Cab and
a regular cab in '56. It seems that all the $ 16.00 optional large rear
windows went into the Custom Cabs, but I can't figure out any difference
between a small window Custom Cab and a regular cab. It might come down
to things like number of sunvisors and type of floor covering and door
panel treatments
