Subject: FTE Pre61 - value of 1956 for t-800

thanks for the responce to my "56" ford t-800 question, i've been looking
ford an older dump truck for private use. this t-800 tandem dump is in
surprisingly good condition,
body is not dented up at all, seats are not torn, bed & box are some what
dented but that's to be expected. it needs a new water pump and the owner
put new rubber on it.he wants $3500.00 for it. i don't know what to think
about that price, any opinions?
scott, upeele aol.com.

Regarding the patch panels you're looking for: Patch panels for the rear
fenders are VERY easy to make yourself. Use a dremmel or cut-off tool to
cut a rectangular patch slightly larger than the rusted area where the
running board meets the rear fender. Trace the opening you cut on to light
cardboard (old cereal box) and cut it out so you have an exact pattern.
Transfer the pattern to a piece of new sheet metal (or a straight piece off
a junk body panel that you can get for free at most any body shop), and have
it wire welded in place. Don't gas weld or braise it, you'll warp the
fenders. E-mail me at vegmanocf aol.com if you want further information.
Phillip

I just checked the FatMan Fabrications web site and they indicate that their
MII is strong enough but you need to install V8 springs out of a 82 - 93 5.0
Mustang. He indicates that the ball joints and tie rod ends are the same
size as the full size fords. Take a look at :

Ford Enthusiast,

The Ford 9 inch rear end was standard under F-100's/F-150's from 1957
until 1982 I believe. (1980 - 1982 or so F-100's had the Ford car lug....
