I just dragged home a new project a 1929 Ford closed cab pickup. I know I'm
in the wrong list for the 29 but my question is I have a chance to buy a
351c 4v to put in it for $450.00. Dose this sound like a fair price? I was
told it came out of a 73 mustang mach1 I don't know if I should believe this
or not. Where can I find a place to decode the numbers or is there a casting
number on the block or heads that should give me a clue. Also if anyone has
done a model a pickup I would like to hear from them.-----Thanks Doug

The f4 had an 84" wide by 109 long flat bed.  Today's beds are 8' wide for
this size truck.  I just put an 8 footer on my F4.  Good Luck

There is a web-site that deals in flatbed repros that I have lost the link
to. It seems it was in N-East or Carolinas maybe. I must have gotten the
link from somewhere like or someone off of that maybe.
They offer several styles, sizes and trims, using the Script Ford in the
back like an original. I myself have used 2x3 rect tube and made a  frame,
lined with small angle and U-channel cross-runners sunk down some to allow
me to use 5/4 lumber for a deck. I used 4" u-channel for the two long main
runners along frame top. The wood sets down in the frame on the angle all
the way around and screws on from underneath. I then use 2x2 (actually
1-1/2") square tubing welded up in nice shape for a headache rack at cab.
Looked real nice after paint and staining of wood. You can make anything you
desire with good metal band saw and a welder! Good Luck!                 "G"
