Kevin,

My Ford truck ID book shows 5 colors listed for '49.
These are Ford Paint code numbers for odering materials.

Medium Luster Black M-1724
Vermillion M-1722
Meadow Green M-14283
Birch Gray M-14286
Chrome yellow M-14301

Good luck

Hi,

I am looking for the color number for the white or cream trim color and the
red
body color for a '49 F-1.

My parts store's catalogs only go back to '52. They list a Sungate Ivory
(M2J-68
or PPG code 80090), but they don't have any color chips so I'm not sure if
this is
it.

Any help is appreciated.

Kevin Hanson

Magnum Axle Co in Oakhurst Ca. makes Disc brake
Conversions for '48 thru '56 Ford Trucks as well as
many others. I don't have their Ph. No. right now, but
you could try Sacramento Vintage Ford at 800-482-3444,
they are a dealer. Let me warn you that these
conversion cost about $600.00.

Anyone know where to get a '58 radio and knob assembly for a Custom Cab. I've
checked around quite a bit and these seem really hard to come by. Any
suggestions? Thanks

I have tried to find 700 -17 tires for my 47 without alot of success. Coker
Tire and others ( who advertise in Hemmings) occasionally list that size but
seem to be out of stock most of the tire or not in production except with some
unknown brand from Mexico.

I was able to find a source for 750-17's which I will substitute for about $125
ea in Chicago. I am close enough to pick them up. If tires have to be sent it
may add another $12- $20 UPS charges for each.

The place in Chicago is Willy's Antique Tire 773 622 4037

Coker Tire is 1 800 251 6336

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Powder Coating

Hello all!

My name is Sam Shelton, i'm located in Hermiston, Oregon.
My profession is custom coater, I powder coat things. (if you
aren't familiar with what powder coating is, i'll put a brief description
below.)

Things have been uncomfortably slow, I want to fix that. In an
effort to increase business i'm lower prices.

My primary supplier is HB Fuller, they have a selection of around
200 colors, ranging from clears, metallics, textures, high gloss to
flats.

I prefer small parts, brakes, timing covers, air cleaners,
generator housings, etc... Big parts are expensive to ship, but if you want
to have something large done, that's fine with me. As long as UPS ships
it.

Please forward to anyone you think may be interested.

Thank you for reading,
Sam Shelton

Definition: Powder coating is a completely dry finishing process.
Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically

charged and sprayed onto the products to be coated. The products are
electrically grounded, so that the charged particles adhere to them
until melted and fused into a solid coating in a curing oven.

Try Engineered Components, Inc., Vernon, CT. 06066, (860)872-7046. They
make kits for 37-56 Ford Pickups. I don't know about the bolt pattern. They
show a 4-3/4 in. and a 4-1/2 in. but might have others. Price for a complete
kit was 329-95 about a year ago.
Good-Luck,

I'm interested in having some smaller parts done (like lamp brackets in
silver and similar). Can you give me an idea what your pricing is like?

Thanks!

Paul, Rubbermaid makes a really nice toolbox for the current "mid size"
pickups that should be the perfect width.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fords forsale

Hello people, been lurking here for a month or so, figured I would
find some good parts source. If anybody knows where I can find
a carter 4b for a 56 F8 or anything else that will work please e-mail me.
Any way the reason I'm posting is while working on this guys phone
line today I notice he had a bunch of old trucks out back and he said all
of them are for sale. Here is the list of fords (50 cab over 56 cab over
56 F250 56 F100 ) He has other makes also. He lives about 10 miles
south of Springfield Ohio. This is his E-mail address (stubnose prodigy.
com) Thought somebody on the list might be in the market for some of
them.
Later,Gibby

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Drag Link & Brake Cable

I just bought new rear parking brake cables for my '50 from Sac-Ford and
they are a little different. The cables have a rubber grommet where they
insert into the brake backer plate. Does anyone know if this style uses the
retainer clips like the original? I called Sac-Ford, but didn't get an
answer. Also, can anyone give me the length and wire diameter of a drag
link load spring for the same?
I have a "52 F-1 cab to get rid of if anyone is around Central Illinois.....
