Subject: FTE Pre61 - Automobile History Search

I understand that there may be a service that will search out the
history of a vehicle for a fee. I think they may be located in Nevada.
Give them the serial number and they trace it from manufacture through
ownership.

Can you point me in the right direction. We want to verify the correct
interior for our 55 F100 (color and trim level).

Thanks

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Wheels/offset etc

When things really go well, it's nice to tell people. I recently
ordered custom wheels from Wheels Vintiques in Fresno Calif. I wanted
the modified stock look. They offset 15x8's but had to use
International centers on the from due to having a Volare' clip. I
ordered them Monday and they arrived Thursday, better than promised. The
offset worked great the look is perfect and I could be happier. When
you need wheels try them.

Howard,

I know for a fact that my 54 seat has the stock materials still on
it, a weaved pattern, brownish in color with solid sides. I think the
55 was the same.

I have a 56 F-600 that still has the original seat material on it. The seat
has been covered but reciently I made a slit in the cover and it revealed the
original seat material was still underneath and it looked pretty good. I know
what you are thinking, take a picture and send it to us or send us a sample. I
will be happy to do just that , but ut will take a while before I can do it.
The truck is stored in Colo. where we stay about six months of the year, and
we jsut returned back to Houston for the winter. So it will be a while before
we return to Colo.

Rich,

Any chance of your sending a photo and/or a snip of material if it can come
off the back or bottom?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 55 seat covering

My 55 panel's original seat which I removed about 2 years ago was 2 tone
vinyl; I'll see if there is still a piece of material in my garage. I
got rid of the complete original seats after trying to give them away
for a year. The material was all vinyl, 2 tone, with the upper, darker
section a burgundy or dark brown, with a beige-ish contrasting color
below. I have seen a detailed description of the material in one of the
many F100 books around the house...I'll try to get the info for you.

Howard, I think Rich is on the right material. Can you find or was there a
55 F100 Spec booklet printed. It would show the design. I could sure use
some similiar material on my 56, and I do have a sketch for the design,
just not the dimensions. If I run down anything will let you know.

Michelle, with the 56--is it a custom cab? If so, perhaps you could put me
on your get a piece of seat material list or photo and some dimensions on
the panel configuration. Would appreciate any help with my 56 Custom Cab

From: Randall Colgan
Subject: FTE Pre61 - Mustang II Spindles

I'm installing a cross member kit to fit a Mustang II IFS onto my 52 F-1.

I need some expert advice from someone that can tell me if rotors from a
late 70s Granada/Monarch will fit onto the 77 Mustang II spindles. I
haven't purchased the rotors yet and can't just try them. If these rotors
will not fit onto the MII spindles, what will fit? If Granada/Monarch
rotors will fit and I assume they have a larger diameter (4 1/2" bolt
pattern), what do I use for calipers? I have removed the MII caliper
brackets in anticipation of installing larger sized rotors.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Randall,

Double check the information I give you cause it has been several years
since I put the Mustang II IFS in my 54. I do believe I used the Granada
rotors but I bought a kit that let me install GM calipers, off a Camaro. The
setup works good. The kit came with the mounting brackets and a new set of
brake shoes, the shoes have a shim attached to the back for spacing reasons
which kind of threw me but they fit and work fine. Good luck. I can't
remember where I got the brake kit but I used a Fatman IFS kit.

Byron,
I recently completed the restoration on a '56 Custom Cab with the 8' bed. My
Uncle was doing most of the work with me and he was able to find an old ford
dealership in Virginia that still had a small roll of the original material.
We even tore off the recovered material and confirmed that this was the
original material since I was going for the complete restoration since my
father had purchased this truck new in '55 and had keep it ever since. One
day I hope to get a couple of pictures of it posted on the Internet. My dad
says that it looks just like it was when he first bought it
