Subject: FTE Pre61 - panel truck seats

Ford Friends,
A computer illiterate friend of mine has a 55 panel truck. He is
looking for the original style seats. Are they hard to find? How much
should he expect to pay? Did all panel trucks 53-56 come with 2 seats or
did only the deluxe/custom cabs come with the passenger seat? And how
are they different from the pickup bench seat, besides being made for
one!?
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100 (with the original bench seat, ha-ha!)

1. Pictorial has been updated. Nearly completely caught
up (only 3 days behind rather than 4 weeks).
2. Links updated (in antique truck section)
3. 83-94 HP/torque ratings added to the forum.

Several people have been waiting on t-shirts. We ran out
and had order more. We received them on Thursday and the
printing was bad (one color was offset). Our supplier,
Jim Osborn Reproductions (same supplier as our books and
decals) believes in top-notch quality and took them back,
no questions asked. They're going back to press and should
be shipping by the end next week. We apologize for the
delay and wanted everyone to know that we don't cash checks
or charge cards until the product ships.

Hello Folks: Trying to put a radio in my 56 F-100 (292). Works great on acc.
but when engine is running....everything but the oil is creeping into the
speakers. Have original wires (copper). Looking for 8 suppressors, old type,
that clipped on the sparkplugs. Any help on a supplier or willing to
purchase, if you have them. My ears thank you very much. ciao, bill batte

Sometimes can solve this problem by slipping in a resistance type wire from
the the coil to the distributor, its not real noticable but can quite down a lot
of noise. Also, make real sure there is a good, wired, ground between the battery,
the frame, and cab. These two things can help noise a whole lot. (PS: Resistor
plugs work better than the in line wire jobbies, they are pretty much the same
thing)
