I had a 1955 F250 that was excellent!!  But found out that virtually no
one has any interest in F250's!!  This truck had a great body, and was
totally stock. I tried for almost a year to sell it, even 2 stints on
eBay, but no one was interested. I finally took a big loss on the truck,
just to get rid of it.  So in my opinion you would be better off to
spend your money on the more popular F100 class.  Just my 2 cents worth.

I have nearly completed the paint stripping process on what I believe to be a
1953 F100.  It is highly modified (Volare,steering column,PB,9" Ford etc).
Due to the various factory colors I have encountered, I know it definitely
was constructed from at least a "six pack of old 53-56 trucks".  The VIN tag
was made with a stamping machine and is clearly not original or even old.  I
am curious if there are any differences in cab construction that might
differentiate between 53-54-55 models.  The only model I can rule is 56 for
obvious reasons.  The rest of the truck is so easy to bolt on it offers no
real clues.  The cab was dark blue.  Was this available all three years?  The
answer is of no real consequence as I have a clean 53 title.  Just real
curious what I have been working so hard on this past year.  Email offline
OK.
Thanks

I bought a rebuilt frame and engine to set my '48 Ford panel on.  The
problem I am faced with is that the frame is from a '50 pickup with a dual
exhaust system.  The left pipe runs right where the tank normally sits.  The
tank I have has a large hole in it which I could weld a patch over but I am
open to using some other type of tank.  I was wondering if any of you other
Ford panel owners could give me any suggestions on where to place the tank
or what kind of tank I could use instead of the stock one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob Jones

It depends on where you want the filler cap to be. I used a gas tank of a 68
Mustang because I wanted to clean up the outside of the truck and I have the
filler cap in the center of the floor at the inside of the back doors.  The
physical size of the tank mad it hit the frame just right and I used self
drilling screws and carriage bolts to hold it up.  If you used a 70 mustang gas
tank it will be about 21 gallons.
This is just how I did it, thought you might could use the ideas.
