Subject: FTE Pre61 - More Detail from Vin #

I finally found the vin # on the frame of my '54 F350. Is there any way
to determine other information about the truck, like original color,
transmission ect, from the frame vin?

This is what I found:F35V4EI540I

F350
239 ohv V-8
1954
Edgewater, NJ
s/n
Can I track s/n?

Thanks

Charles-- Here is what the Ford Pickup Red BooK says:

F35= F350
U= 239 V8
4= Model year last digit, ie., 1954
E= Assembly Plant, E= Edgewater, New Jersey
15401= Consecutive Sequence Number from 10001, hence your truck was the
5400th truck built by the Edgewater Assembly facility.

All what the book says, hope it helps!!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - undercoating

Could I get some advice on undercoating my recently primed and painted
fenders,
running boards, et al? Primed and painted means underneath as well as top
side.
I've been to the auto paint store, and they have some fairly pricey aerosol
spray
cans from 3M for about $10 each, and I'd need about 8 cans. But, I
understand
from some, that I might just buy a large inexpensive container of roof
sealer etc
type stuff at the hardware store and brush it on for about $5/gallon. After
the brush
on I could use a couple of the spray units for the cosmetic effect here and
there, and
in the cracks etc. I'd appreciate hearing about your experience or getting
your
advice.

Not sure whether this is of an use but I'll offer it. I looked up the
running boards in a "Big Job" Ford parts catalog which covers F7-F9
trucks 1948-1955. It says the running board s are the same for the
1953-1955 F7,B7, F8, F800, F9 and they are 39.13", and are part number
16450A (R) and 16451B (L). Unfortunately my parts list is limited to the
bigger Ford Trucks and gives no indication whether they are also
applicable to the smaller trucks.
