Subject: FTE Pre61 - voting on the new list/and stuff

The reason many of us haven't voted is:

1 I never go to the site.
2 Not sure what I'm voting on.
3 Can't find where to vote. I would rather spend time working on my
truck than clicking on buttons looking for the "Vote here" button.

Bottom line is, I like the people on this list and the information and
support they provide. Although I am strictly a stock kinda guy, covering
other subjects pertaining to old Ford trucks is OK. Asking how to mount a
chevy engine with all of the problem/solutions that go with it into an old
Ford should be allowed. Responses should be off list. This keeps the OT
subject matter to a minimum.

Update on my truck (stuck engine). Nothing right now. Going to put this
project off for several weeks and catch up on finishing my shop (wireing,
insulation, sheetrock, paint, etc). Then i will pull the heads and see what
is going on inside.

Quick question...Does anybody know or experienced any major problems with
dropping a 289 in a 59 F100? My 292 is about to "leave the building..."

Glenn,
Speedway Motors has a book called "how to do Electrical Systems," by Tex
Smith. It's on page 201 of their current catalog and sells for $19.95.
They list 2 other books on page 200. The first is titled "Automotive
Electrical Handbook" by Jim Horner ($14.95), and the other is "How to Wire
Your Street Rod From Start to Finish" by Jack Sweeden ($7.99).

Dave and others

I'm about to purchase a 55 F100 that's been restored/customized and I was
interested in going to the Supernationals also. I was just looking on the
web and found the dates for it, May 18-21 and the number to call for more
info is, 1-704-872-7327. Also, if anyone has anymore info about the show,
like entry fees or anything else, please let me know.

Thanks

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1956 C-750 Big Job

Hi all,

I went through a "private" junk yard today, only about a mile
and a half away from my house, that I never new was there
before. While there, I stumbled across what I believe is a 1956
C-750 Big Job with a grain or dump body on it. (I couldn't
tell which it was.) It was hard to get a good look because
it was surrounded by overgrown bushes and weeds. It has
the usual rust starting but looks like a complete truck. It also
showed the signs of some previous body filler work. It is
a V8 Custom Cab and apparently was used by the Coca Cola
Co. since their script was showing on both doors through a
coat of spray paint. (There is a local bottling plant here
in Pensacola and has been for many years.) If anyone is at all
interested in this truck contact me privately and I will see what
I can do to hook you up with the owner. He is no longer open
to the general public but will sell to people that he knows and
their friends. The owner said that the truck is definitely for sale
but he did not give me a price. He appears to be very reasonable
on his prices.
