I believe it is a FE '64 block with '68 Automobile heads on it and
4bbl. No EGR on this unit.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Headers 292

Steve,
I bought a set from Mid-Fifties and I know RedsHeaders also has them. I felt
a difference and really glad I went that route. ALso makes the engine bay
area more "performance appealing" which for a small block I liked.
Good Luck
Jim 54 F100


Can anyone tell me of a good source for headers for the 292? Is this a
worthwhile addition ie. significant, noticeable, horsepower increase? Any
suggestions?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Maverick Rear end

Hi all, judging from the lack of response about my putting a 3.50
1970's Maverick rear end on my 53 F-100 not too many people have tried
it. I was told it bolts right up and is very cheap if you don't need
the strength. I will check out a couple of yards and let you all know
what I find out.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - F4 Tubeless Wheels

I recently saw an F4 (1949) at the Monroe, Washington, swap meet. It
had tubeless 19 inch steel wheels on the original hub bolt pattern. One
fellow with the truck stated that he thought the wheels came from an
"early motor home". He didn't know what year or make other than that it
was a Ford chassis. Does anyone know about these wheels and IF they are
still available new. Sure looked good on that very nicely done F4, and
also got around the safety issue of the original split rims. Are 19
inch tires easily available? Seems like I have seen some around.

Steve,

Try Sanderson 800-669-2430 for 'Y' block headers.
Headers are a good performance upgrade for any engine.
Street Rodder Mag. has been running a series of
articles called "Why not a 'Y' block." I have been
following it because I built a couple of them when
they were the only Ford OHV V8's. Today I wouldn't put
good money into one, not because they are bad but
because there are better choices. However if you are
into nostalgia and isn't everyone on this list, go for
it.

Please allow a FTE brag. I entered "The General" in a second car and truck
show. I am pleased to announce the "He" took first place in the Fat Fender
Pickup class. The meet was Hot Rod Sunday, at Moroso Motorsports Park. Not
bad two shows, two-first place trophies.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 53 F-100 Panel for sale

Hi folks!

Back from lurking in the background (and moving from Atlanta!).
Just setteled into Raleigh and finally got my garage set to receive the
53' panel that I've sent off to the bodyman for restoration. While
reading the July 25 Raleigh News and Observer, I found the following ad
under Autos, Classic and Specialty:

FORD F-100 '53, Panel Truck,
red Offenhauser equipped flat-
head V-8, restored to original.

The price and the gentleman's phone number are in the ad,
but I think that I should show a little discresion and ask that
if any one is interested to drop me a line directly and I'll forward
both along.

I called and spoke to the man. He seemed to be a very nice guy.
He's had the truck as long as he's been married!
(about 20 years I think he said).
He also said that there are several other parts and such laying around
the garage he needed to get rid of and would call me when they came
available. I'll keep you'all posted.

Another truck that he mentioned needing to part with was a late model
Lightning pickup, but he didn't mention the year. If I find out any more,
I'll let you'all know.

Later!
