Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tilt Hood

I am thinking of installing a tilt hood on my 55 panel and wanted your
input as to which is the "best" one. I don't have a welder, so I would
have to be sure the kit I buy is bolt-in.

I would like as much work space as possible; as I recall from Pigeon
Forge, the BMW style tilt hood kit actually tilted the hood the furthest
forward. I originally thought that all the tilt kits tilted equally.
Any good/bad input would be much appreciated by me and probably others
also.

Thanks in advance, Paul Gayda

Just wanted to check and see if there are any other F250's from the
Fifties out there besides Don Neigbor's a Truck named Grover and my
Chuck the Truck. Send a photo to me if you can. I'm especially
interested in pictures of the 1954 F250's tailgate and rear bumper. I'd
like to see what the original body looks like from all sides. Thanks
for any help.

Plain Bill ... i also have a F250 ... 1953 vintage ..i doubt that the tailgate
and box are all original as there were some extra's welded on such as the ever
famous supports for the sides of the box .. you know from the bumper to the
top of the box .. thats all i know..

The glass shops have a large water cooled (a must) belt sander. They would
probably let you buy a coarse belt and rent it for a few hours. Just a
thought.
