I may have the rack that hangs on the side of the bed. Is this what you are
after?
I will take a look for it today and see if I saved it.

Darcy...
I'm no body man either, so this is just my opinion.
It's always a lot more work than it looks like.

My '56 had a damaged roof, not apparent until I got it off the frame and
lower to the gorund, the pieces of old headliner out etc. Just dents all
along one side mostly but arount the back and front on that side. Poorly
filled and sanded to a nice ripple effect. It must have been rolled, or
a platform for a rain dance? It took me weeks to get it right.

Anyway, I think your on the right track. Make sure its square, diagonal
measurements across the main areas. Tack weld in some cross bracing
before romoving the panel to keep it that way. And, use the posts, they
were not works of art to start with. Maybe you can rent a good metal
cutter to make your job easier.

I love the curves of these old trucks so much my wife is getting
jealous. It's not brain surgery but it is difficult and time consuming
to get it right. Good luck keep us informed.

I was looking at the backside of my cab today, trying to determine a
course of action for its repairation. Let me tell you, its not a pretty
site. My Grandpa (previous mechanic/repairman) beleived strongly in
function over form, hence the spiderweb arcwelding pattern. Also badly
rusted and stretched, the metal is a bodyworker's nightmare, and I'm no
bodyworker. However

From: Howard Tarnoff
Subject: FTE Pre61 - New Addition

We recently picked up a 54 Ford Crestline Sunliner Convert. This is
because EFFIE is a "Trailer Queen". No, I don't want to start that
thread over again.

I am in need of a few parts and I know some of you, like Abe, visit the
bone yards from time to time. So here goes:

The bezel for the heater fan switch. This is very close to the F100
style. Black and mounts to the dash.

Need the complete lock assembly (not just the cylinder) for the trunk
lid. This is kind of special in that this car has a Coronado Kit (kinda
like a continental kit but mounted to the trunk lid).

I am also looking for one full sized wheel cover. Must be 54 Crestline
full sized.

Thanks gang in advance for your help. Taking both to a show tomorrow,
and yes...

WE ARE DRIVING THE EFFIE (6 miles round trip).

Howard

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Bolt in radiators

I appreciate all the replies as to what radiator will bolt in my 55. I
guess I didn't make it clear that I wasn't referring to a stock
radiator, which will surely bolt in, but I was trying to determine which
later model radiators would easily bolt onto the existing supports. I
was contemplating lowering the front radiator height that way, since the
stock is really tall.
Thanks, Paul

Paul-------Don't know if this would be an exact match, but on my 51 I put in a radiator from a 68 Galaxie. Perfect fit in the space. I took the mounting brackets from the Galaxie, set right in like factory. Real easy, might find one and measure.

Ken-- I think that I have the answer for you-- This data comes from the
"Ford Pickup Red BooK" by Motorcraft International--

#F10DE714880

F10= F100
D= Engine code, in this case, 352 ci V8
E= Assembly Plant Code, E= Mahwah New Jersey
714880= Consecutive Production Sequence Number, in this case, the book
says that
your truck was built in July 1965.

OK, So here is what I think that you have, now that we integrate all of the
pieces--

You have a 1965 F100 Ford Pickup with a 352 ci V8, Made in Mahway New
Jersey in July 1965. Why July, you ask? The book says that production
sequence numbers 708000-719999 were made in July.

Does this data appear to track with what you think that you have, saw,
wished for?!!!!!!

Ken-- Get me the code off the rear end and I can tell you the gear ratio!
Looks like the codes could be either alpha numeric, ie., A76 or just plain
numbers, 78.
