Will check them and I appreciate the help. Suppose they also fit a 1956
272 since the 1957 272 is identical? Byron

I got mine from Classic Motorbooks, 729 Prospect Ave, Osceola, WI 54020,
800-826-6600. 'Course it was a while ago - I don't know if its still in their
catalog. Worth a free call, though. If you don't already get their catalog,
give them a call to get a free one. Lots of Ford Truck stuff. I have "How to
Build the High Performance Street Flathead' on the way as we speak.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Engines

Hey everybody,
Its almost time for an engine for my 56' F100, I'm pretty sure I want a
351 windsor, but some people say a 302 would be better. I won't be
towing anything, but it will be for everyday use. I'd like some power,
but not too much. What are some pro's and con's about a 351 or 302?
And what would be a good donor vehicle? Thanks in advance.

I bought mine from Obsolete Ford Parts Company fax (912)686-7125
(912)686-2470 or 686-5101 on the landline. You can give them a holler and see
if they have any in stock. Good Luck

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '57-60 Custom Cab curved back glass availability?

Folks,
Is there a source for the curved back glass for the '57-60 Custom Cabs?
Today I looked at a '58 Custom Cab with Buick 455/turbo400 (!?), $1000.
Not too bad shape except some yahoo had just busted out the back glass.

I'm OK with anything I can sick my MIG welder on, but what do you do for
glass?
Brett
PS. How's the availability for the '56 curved back glass?
