I have been to the spring Carlisle and it does seem to be quite early
in the spring (unpredictable weather here in PA at this time). I have
never been to Hershey however even though it I was born and raised only
about 30 miles away. I always thought it was for those Old Model T's era
cars. I now live about 2 hours away but I do want to go some year.
If you don't like rain and cold here is the solution for truck lovers.
Go to the Carlisle Truck Nationals June 25,26,27. There is only truck
stuff there which means you don't need to wade through car stuff. It is
smaller which means closer parking. A lot of the nationally known truck
parts vendors are there which means you can look at the items before you
buy and check the quality and you don't have to pay for shipping!
See you in Carlisle! Abe '54 F-100

Go to a car stereo shop, not something like circuit city, but the small
ones that do the real fancy installs. Most of them have miles of any color
you could ever want. Also, check your local magazine rack for a car stero
magazine, you should see several vendors with this type of stuff.

I will be making my first venture to the F-100 super-nationals in May, so
I have several silly questions. First, where exactly is the event located?
Is it on the main strip?

Second, are there any internet resources that have any information/details
of the event?

Third, what should I expect to see? Is it basically a big truck show? I
there a swap meet? Will there be vendors from truck part suppliers?
Demonstrations?

Are most of the vehicles in restored form, or are there trucks in all
conditions for viewing and for sale?

Lots of questions, see ya in Tennessee

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 300 6's

Jefe,
The 300 has me interested also. Which 240-300's have rear sumps? Am I
reading right that the later 300's have split exhaust manifolds (real
duals)? Would the Offie dual port be any better or worse than the
clifford? Could a carb'ed setup get the gas mileage of the injected
setup? What manual OD trans are best for a pickup?
Thanks for any input,
Brett

Guys,

I hope you won't deem this off topic Ken, but I was at a car show in Heber
Springs, Ark today and saw a c****y truck (about a '40 model -- I don't keep
up with them!) with a 302 and C4 in it! If I would have found the owner I
would have kissed him (NOT!)

I think we ought to take up a collection and pay for this truck to
be shown at every Chevy truck show in the country.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Wiring conduit

I have been looking for some plastic, flexible, wiring conduit to run my
under hood wires in, the type with the split in one side to insert the wires.
Before I get fifty responses here telling where to find it, let me say that I
have been able to find miles of the black. What I want is purple. Some time
ago I had seen an ad in some trucking, or street rodding magazine advertising
this wiring conduit in various colors, with purple being one of them.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - lower valence for a 56


I am not interested in originality points. My question is will a 53 lower
valence fit a 56 and look right. I know that there are some minor
differences, but I am not sure what until I have fully disassembled my
truck.

Thanks in advance

Subject: FTE Pre61 - paint codes

I have another book with some paint code info. Don't know if this helps or
hurts, but I have compiled a table of the information from "Ford Truck ID
Numbers" as previously listed, and from a book "Second Edtiton Standard
Catalog of Trucks"
for the years 1951, 1952, and 1953/4.

I have posted this table at:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://members.aol.com/winfordr/auto/ftpcodes.html

As is obvious, there are discrepancies and some omissions from each book.
Also, caveat " No warranty that the info is accurate or free of typographical
errors"
