Does anyone have a source for chrome grill inserts for 53'55 trucks...
I see them on the show cars but I don't see them in the catalogs..

Is this a "You send it out and get it chromed" item ???

I had my 55 Grill done at Nu-Chrome in Fall River, MA. Do not remember what
the cost was. You do need to provide them with a good grill and they will
quote you on several different levels of quality.

Good luck,
Howard

If your talking the complete grill So-Cal pickups and Sacramento Vintage
ford both have chrome accessories. If you are talking about the 55 rams
horn chrome pieces, I belive Drake or Dennis Carpenter makes a after market
replacement. Check the Classic trucks mag and they usually show an add for
the chrome pieces. I got the rams horns for my 55 and they were a very good
reproduction.

I have not tried the address. Will you please share it me. I would like to
see how much it would cost for some wheel cylinders for a '49 F1.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Merc' Trucks

Someone asked about Mercs. I was born and raised in Canada and now live =
in
Seattle , so here's my input on the M-100's. A Merc truck is a Ford ina=

tux from north of the 49th (Canada eh?) I am now putting Merc Chrome on=

my '56 Panel. I have had this chrome stored in my attic for 24 years,
since I took it off a wrecked 56 Merc in a farmer's field outside of
Edmonton , Alberta , Canada.. When I took the two chrome pieces off of t=
he
rear doors, the pressed in FORD was under that Chrome. The hood has no
front emblem, but has the MERCURY letters just like the cars on the front=

of the hood. I saw a '55 Merc and it had a larger star and additional
chrome on the lower bar of the front grille. I have heard of a truck par=
ts
reproducer in Calgary, Alberta , Canada that does the reproduction chrome=

for old Merc trucks. The Panel Merc's had the V8 designation in the rear=

door chrome and with only about 150 of the v8 models made each year , it =
is
a rare piece. I am also painting up a Ford hood for my panel so that
could be an easy swap.
Dan the Merc' Man.
