Rod-- I think that I have solved your problem. I am looking for a good F1
tailgate, however, I found a gate today that was too big for my F1. The
gate that I found is 54 7/8 inches wide, 21 1/4 inches high. Is that an
F2-F3 gate? It is the same vintage, 50-52, as it looks just like my 51.
This one was in good shape, of course, it is 45 years old, however, overall
was in great shape. The old boy wanted $100, however, I think 4 20 bills
would have taken it. Let me know if this is the one, if it is, I'll tell
you where it is at!!

I have a 53 F250 118" Wheel base and the GVW is 6900 lbs
I don't know what the shipping weight of the truck is but still looking...
They did make many diff trucks they had the "stake" and platform,
61/2 foot beds and 7-8 ft beds, i have the ""Express" 3/4 ton flat 8
i hope this helps, if you buy the book Ford Pickup Trucks development history
and restoration guide (Paul G. McLaughlin) it has lots of info in there
I bought min from Obsolete ford parts Co 912-686-2470...If I find the actual
weight I'll let ya know...

I believe the "curb" weight for the F250 was 3448 and GVW 6900 ---any members
correct me if I'm wrong...

I need as many parts as possible for my F100 1959 Truck, I am
very interested in;

1. Converting the Drums to Disk
Suggestions, I know I can buy a kit but is there an alternative
$$ wise

not much else here except change front ends and thats almost worse than the
kit . keep your drums in good shape, rebuid your cylinders, keep good master
cylinder. youll be fine.


2. Need a Gille, I need a new grille the one i have just doesnt
do it.
i can probably get you one but unless yours is bent really bad have it
chromed. all of the are 40 years old now.

3. Front Parking light lens
i got one you can have pretty cheap and shipping

4. Headliner
the headliners were just a piece of cardboard with a couple other pieces on
the side. try vintage ford or one of the other f-100 houses.

5. Floor Carpet
no carpet in a 59-rubber floormat. same place or make one.

call me offline and i'll see what i can get you.

Etc etc.

Thanks,
Jody
