I would like to see the article. Where and when was it published? If you
can't post it, would you mind sending me a copy snail mail?

Does anyone know where to find an interior instrument cluster front panel for
a '58 custom cab. New repro, Used, or Nos is fine, preferrably chrome, or
unfinished. Thanks, C.M.

I'm posting for a computerless friend,He has a 55 ford pickup with a
351W and is looking for headers. Is there headers made for this swap or
will he have to improvise?

It should work just fine.

Possibly, but I'm wondering why you'd want to. That stock rear end is no fun
at all--you've got a gear ratio in there of 3.91:1 which is going to limit you
to about 60 mph--and at that speed your engine will be screaming for mercy. If
I'm not mistaken, you can use the entire Versaille rear end on your
truck--isn't this a common swap? If not you should be able to use the brakes
on another 9".

>
> 4. Any serious pitfalls with this car


The engine might be a little under powered in stock form, but apart from that I
can't think of anything disasterous.

I think it's a good way to go.

I used Hedman Shorty Headers on my 351w in my 54, worked great, I have
different steering column though and an IFS kit so I am not sure about the
stock steering or suspension with them. Good luck.

I would also be interested in the article if you can find the mag title and issue.

I have a "53 F100 that was once a AAA EXPRESSWAY SERVICE truck. Can I use
the logo of that company or do I have to get permission from the company?
Can anyone tell me anything about the services AAA provided and when they did
provide it?
