Paul,
Check Nov issue of Classic Truck. They have an article on their project
truck, a '48 C***y that they replaced the whole bed.
They give Mar-K as a source for whole beds or any needed parts.

Just couldn't let this one go. As Reagan once said, "There you go again."
Why do some think that their ideas are the "only" ideas as to how or what we
should restore or rod? Hell, the Pinto owner may have said the same thing
about your wife (or mine) when you walked away. The guy that lives next door
to me owns 2 new Lexuses and thinks I'm nuts to buy American and at that,
restore old American cars! Thank God for individualism.

FTEers,

Boy do we cover all spectrums here! Just look at the pic pages -- everything
from boc-stock to wild-slammed. I hope we never "step" on anybody's opinion
here. If someone wants to chrome the undercarriage of a 75 Courier, let them!

I have no personal family attachment to my truck. I want it to look like a 57
but have some of the modern conveniences. Nobody will have another like mine!
(and there's a reason for that). Most on this list wouldn't think of doing
what I'm doing (again for good reason). I wish now that I was born between 53
and 56 or even 51 or 52, but it was 57 (and just a few days from 58). Fate
brought me and my truck together (I don't want to talk about who might have
gotten me and the 90 Lincoln together).

Can't we all just get along? Let the stockers stock and the choppers chop.

I like the look of the old FORD truck, especially the 48-52's. But I also
like the ride of the NEW FORD truck . You know, being able to stop when you
need to. Not feeling like you are going to roll over when you turn a sharp
corner. Thats why my 51 F1 is going to look stock But ride like new(I
hope). I'm keeping the FLATHEAD which will be bored, stroked,3/4 cam,
abnormal carburetion. C4 AOD Mustang II front end, 8" rear, Disk brakes all
around, Power Steering. and......air conditioning.
Like I said, When I want go 70 on the Interstate to Pidgeon Forge (which by
the way is a 3 hour drive) I can. When I need to stop once I get there , I
can. I still like the bone stock stuff!! I Just wouldn't want to try
drivin' one for 3 hours at a time on the highway.

Thanks for listening!!!

Sam I Am

Good.......Darn good......... If you have any photos of your truck in
your putter you can see what it would like chopped. It's simple to do, I can
give some help with if you like.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - More bed questions

A more basic question. If I want to do a steel bed floor on my 56 F-100, is
there a kit available or will I need to fabricate the floor?
