Well I am sorry to say I will be "uns*bscribing" due to family issues that
demand the energy spent hanging here learning, sharing, and appreciating
the insights and delights connected with all things Effie (coe'ie, milky,
etc-y). If anyone has any interest in conversing with me specifically about
anything, feel free to give me a shout at my personal e-mail address
(abcinc tiac.net). Myself and my trucks will likely continue to be seated
together as has been the custom for the last 20+ years. You guys/gals are a
great bunch! I hope to return and find you all here. In a perfect world...

A big consideration for using the Volare front end is that in states
such as Virginia, which have bumper height laws, (the bottom of the
bumper here cannot be under [if I recall] 10 inches), due to the ease of
adjustment, you can raise your low front end to legal height for
inspection very quickly.

I just rec'd my Pigeon Forge video. It is very good, but,
unfortunately, Ford-Trucks-Com didn't get any copy.
There was a nice interview with Clive from NZ though. Hope you find
that panel, Clive.

other companies making kits that weld in .. check out www.zigsstreetrods.com

i think it is like 1800$$ and they have a few that go as high as 3000$$ .. or

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Rear End

Hi,
I have a 1949 F2. I'm looking for the right Tranny and rear end for it.
Can any one help? I'm still not sure exactly what I'm going to do with it.
I've just finished the flathead 8 in it and runs good under 50mph, anything
more and I'll go deaf from drive train noise.

I do not mean to make anyone cry, but I used to know where a 9'
styleside bed was in a boneyard in central Texas. I say used to because
a few years ago the boneyard CRUSHED EVERYTHING made before '68!!! I am
sad to report that lost in the carnage was a '60 3/4 ton "roach coach",
a '37 International panel delivery, a '46 Chevy school bus, a '59 F-100
with a 292 with Offenhouser valve covers, and the one that made me cry,
a '37 Ford tow truck with an Olds Rocket 98 motor stuffed into it!! ALL
GONE! That particular boneyard taught me to love boneyards, and to
dislike boneyard owners. (no offense to any respectable operators out
there).
