Abe, the "Standard Catalogue of American Light Trucks" has some of the
production numbers you are looking for. Not for the vacuum vs. electric
wipers, though.

As for passing over cammed, over carbed,etc. vehicles being beaten in stop
light Grans Prix by an Omni, wellll.... I had the distinct pleasure of
doing just that in our Plymouth Horizon about a year ago. I pulled up next
to a Chevy pickup that was just barely able to idle. When the light turned
green, he tromped it, but the truck couldn't get its throat cleared until
just before the shift point, then it was stumbling all over itself until
just before time to grab another gear. He was no competition fo my Horizon.
I installed a mild mid-range cam and a distributor with a fairly agressive
timing curve in a VW I owned once, putting the power where I wanted it
most, about 40 mph, the average speed of all the people I pass on the windy
road I live on. It drove great.
I know all this may seem non-Ford, but I just wanted to use the examples
to show what happens when you get carried away vs. doing it right. I can't
afford to tear an engine apart again after putting the wrong go-faster
goodies on an engine, and I'm sure the same goes for a lot of you. Think
about it, and do it right the first time!

Oooohhhhh if it weren't so far away..... the horror!!!

I'm really waiting until after we move, when we will have a garage for me to
really have a nice dry place to work rather than having to lay in carolina clay
and not have anywhere to plug power tools into. After that I'm renting a flatbed
trailer and finding myself an effie!!!

Chris,

If your serious and in the NC area, I'd call Richard's (near Ashboro), I
can find the number if you need it, he had a '53 in
fair shape, all original, running, with the original Fordomatic
and y block. I think he was asking 3k but might come down some.

Alec,
Thanks but no. A $3K truck is a lot more than I wanted to get started with. I
have seen a lot of ads for sub-$1,000 trucks (granted in totally unrestored and
unmodified condition, which is what I'd prefer to start with to assure I end up
with a truck EXACTLY the way I want it) and even $300-$500 trucks don't seem
to be all THAT impossible to build.

I figure that I will probably end up getting a truck in the vicinity of $500, not
running and possibly without engine at all, good frame but possibly cancerous
body panels. Rusty fenders and such are replaced easily enough but a rusted
out cab will probably be passed over.

The only way I'd spend more than $1,000 I think is if I got a truck that was
rebuilt nearly to original specs. 12v upgrade is fine, but a truck that already
has IFS, Chevy engine, etc. I'd rather avoid. So a good condition mostly
original truck would be fine for more money or an unrestored but workable
truck for under $1,000.

Like I said, I'd *prefer* to wait until I have my garage which if all goes well will
be in a few months. I'll have to ask Santa for a 51-52 F1 this year. :-) I love all
the old effie's though and a 53 would be just as welcome as a 48. A 51 or 52 is
the ultimate for me, though.

Right now I am driving a POS 87 F250 and resist all suggestions I've gotten to
pretty it up. This is my ugly truck. (and an ugly truck it is) but before the year
is out I'd at least hope to have a place ready to work on an old truck and pretty
it up.

I happened to find a truck bed (mid-sixties Ch*vy rusted out), and an old truck
(Ch*vy) on the land I bought. Found it over the weekend. It's 36 acres of
woods and I haven't seen the whole place yet so every now and then we find
surprises back there (like the moonshine still). That old truck will be my
laboratory to learn how to weld on so I don't have to scar a Ford. The local
community college has some welding classes and with the donor cars I now
have at my disposal it should be interesting. More on this in a diffferent
message to come.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Welding skills

Howdy folks,

As promised, I wanted to bring up the subject of welding in another thread
since I think it seems more appropriate to split it off.

In case you missed the first message leading into this, here's a summary:

- I know nothing about welding and have never done it before.

- I have found on my land (used to be a tobacco farm) some old Ch*vy donor
truck parts (plus a truck) to use as donor vehicles. I want to use these to
practice welding skills on.

- Local community college offers welding classes.

Now to my question. I've restored Mustangs before, but none of them needed
any kind of welding. To get a (nearly) 50 year old truck, though, I'd imagine I'll
need to learn some welding skills to do a good restoration. What type(s) of
welding to I need to learn and what are the different types of welding used for in
regards to restoring an old truck?

Thanks,
Chris

Does anyone know where I could find 5 matching 15"x 6", or 15" x 6.5"
stock steel wheels. They need to have the 5 lug x 4.5" pattern to fit on
my '55'. I have changed to a 9 inch with disc brakes in the back and am
putting Chrysler rotors on the front. I live in Northern Illinois and
none of the boneyards around here have any. I can find plenty of 14" but
want to run 15's

From: Alec Fernandez
Subject: RE: FTE Pre61 - Welding skills

Chris,

My suggestion would be to find a MIG welder (sometimes called wire
feed). These work buy having a spool of thin wire (.035" i think) that
runs out when you pull a trigger. Also when you pull the trigger it
releases some shielding gas (usually CO2 or a CO2/Argon Mix) that comes
out a nozzle right where the wire is feeding out.
This wire is energized and the ground clamp is on the piece your welding
so that where the arc comes from and the wire is the fill metal. The
shielding gas displaces the oxygen from around the molten metal and
prevents nasty oxidation reactions that would otherwise progress very
quickly at such a high temp and result in severe splattering. Straight
CO2 works great with sheet metal and other mild steel and is very cheap
and old CO2 tanks are very easy to find.

Ask around welding shops and welding equipment sellers and you can find
them sometimes. You can also buy flux cored wire which eliminates the
need for shielding gas but results in dirtier welds.

These are VERY easy to use and work great on sheet metal. You can
vary the voltage and wire speed and weld pretty thin stuff. You can get
a piece of copper to use as a backer plate and fill holes with them.
You'd be amazed at how useful these things are. If you break
off a pin in a hole or a bolt, you can weld an piece of a nail on the
end and use that to pull it. I've used it to pull wheel bearing races
when they got stuck, back out broken exhaust studs, etc.

I'm sure they'll have one in the welding class so you'll see for
yourself how easy it is.

Stick welders can be cheaper but are difficult to use on thin
sheetmetal.

Look for some Crown Vic' s (or the Mercury/Lincon versions) they use the
wheels you want, and some are pretty fancy, esp. on the Lincons. look for
'83 up.

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Welding skills

Chris, sheet metal welding reguires at least a mig welder (NO ARC WELDERS).
With a mig anyone can weld sheet metal with a small amount of teaching. Tig
welders are best, but are take alot of practice and understanding of metals
and you need to be able to weld with a torch before you ever attempt to use a
tig. Arc welding is not hard to learn the basics but require considerable
experience to really know how to weld a dependable strong weld that won't
break. Arc welding is next to impossible to weld sheetmetal (not impossible)
, but a very high level of skill is required. Most schools try to cover all
types of welding to some degree, don't expect to become a certified welder in
a few short months, but you can become proficent enough with a mig to do all
your sheet metal work. Please leave any supension or frame welding to a
certified welder. Good luck,

Mike,

Let me share this with you. The restoration shop I use was able to find
a set of 4 15" wheels on a 54 F100. By the time we got done with sand
blasting, hand sanding, prime coat, 2 color coats, and 4 clear coats I had
17 hours of labor plus materials.

If you are doing a show truck it is one thing. If not, try Vintage Wheels
and
buy the new copies at less than $50.00 each.
