All these years and I didn't realize I was supposed to be "Embarrassed And I
didn't know that is how I was supposed to buy my vehicles. What a rude
awakening!!!! I guess I better go out and buy a couple of Chrysler Hemi's
or better yet, better drop a couple of 4 banger Offy's in my cars. They
probably won more races over the years than any other engine.

Does anyone have any suggestions on hanging the spare tire under the bed on
a 51 F1?

Dont know if this helps but I have the stock hanger and all
hardware for a 55 F100. Had it blasted and restored only
to find that the tire will not fit between my dual exhaust as
I have it configured.

Their were 15,771 manufactured, of the pick up body type. Price for basic
truck was $1,702.00. All the accessories for the F 1 and F 2 were also
available for the F 3. Colors were Black, Glen Mist Green, Meadow Green,
Sheridan Blue, Sandpiper Tan, Vermilion and Woodsmoke Gray. Five Star Extra
Cab options were available for the F 3. If you want something hard to find
look for a factory platform F 3. There were only 37 made.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Running Boards

I ran into a chap who redid his 55 F100 into a street rod.
Nice truck with custom running boards. He has a pair
of solid and original boards available. I know these
are hard to come by. If anyone is interested send me an
email and I will forward his phone number. I have no idea
on the price.

We used a spair tire winch out of a M*zd*. The assembly is very simple
and bolts on to a x-member on the M*zd*, but we just put in a piece of
metal and bolted it to that.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Ford-O-Matic compatability

Does any one out there know the answer to this one?:

My daily-driver 53 F100 needs a new transmission. At present, it has a stock 3-Speed. What kind of modifications would I expect if I were to switch it out with a Ford-O-Matic? I would like to keep the truck stock--I believe the 53 was the first year to use this auto-tranny.

Big questions: Will I need to switch driveshafts (and where can I find one)? What kind of steering column modifications need to be made? (Is it simply to remove the shift tube and get a column bracket with a single hole?), Where can I find a stock F-O-M shifter? Is it a bolt-on installation or is there some
weird technique that requires special tools?

I know that most folks would recommend a late-model tranny, but that's my last choice--and an auto tranny would be handy in my city (San Francisco). I would appreciate the picks-and-pans of the Ford-O-Matic from a knowledgable crowd (you guys)...

Thanks in advance for the wisdom.

Hunter
