I have accest to what looks like a 1960 super duty 1 ton.  it is totally
trashed, as it was used as a feed truck on a ranch for way too many years.
all the emblems are gone, the rear fenders, as well as the doors!  it is a
292 truck, with 4 speed.  what makes it unusual is Its 10" bed, and 6 lug 17"
wheels.

Does anybody have any experience with these?  what is it?  is it worth
finding a new body for?

Subject: ADMIN: Efforts to stop spam


Ford Truck Enthusiasts receives about 20-50 spam e-mails per
day.  Fortunately, the list server rejects the postings.
Unfortunately, the rejected e-mails are bounced to the admin
e-mail address (ie, me).

At one point, FTE uses the mail-abuse.org and orbs.org
databases to thwart spam.  This practice was discontinued
because a small percentage of users were unable to send
e-mail to FTE because their ISP is listed in either the
mail-abuse and orbs databases.

There are many reasons for being in one of these databases:

1. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and was determined
  to allow SMTP relaying. ie, their system is wide open to
  allowing spammers to bounce mail off their server.
2. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and blocked testing.
  Usually, testing is blocked because the ISP knows their
  mail server is insecure and they do not or cannot fix the
  problem.  ***This is the primary reason for some of our
  users being unable to send us mail.***
3. ISP is a known, reported source of spam and was submitted
  to mail-abuse.
4. ISP is a known to allow dial-up users to spam.

Due to the amount of spam received, the mail-abuse and Orbs
lookups have been added back to our mail configuration.  If
your e-mail gets blocked by our server, either pressure your
ISP to fix the problem or switch to an ISP that takes spam
seriously.  Don't take the excuse from them that the Orbs
test isn't acceptable to them.  The only reason for not wanting
to be tested is fear of test failure.  The big boys (AOL,
Mindspring, Earthlink, etc.) aren't afraid of Orbs testing and
neither should the little providers.

I bought some bear claw latches from a local store and they didn't have
instructions, I don't think that the latches would be much different
though.  We mounted out latch in the door and the post on the cab, it
worked out really good.  I have photos if anyone is interested.

Sounds to me like an F-4 heavy one-ton. Didn't think they had in later 50's.
Would they have had F-450's then? I'ld say maybe for parts, with that much
missing restoration would be out of site in costs for a truck most people
would not want and would be hard to sell. Wheels will be hard to find with
that bolt pattern in one-pc. style and tires too. I'm sure there are lots of
little things you can't see right now that would drive you nuts.

Hopefully I will be putting an engine in my 1958 F100 sometime this year.  I'm having trouble deciding what to put in it though.  I've got the 223 I-6 that was in it to start with and I had pulled it out for the purpose of a rebuild (which I haven't started yet).  I also like the idea of putting a v8 in it though.  It seems that parts for the 223 will cost more than for an 8 cylinder.  Any thoughts/suggestions about this?

I have been trying to remember the name of the
organization that is working to get some sense into
the smog laws, prevent unnecessary taking of old cars
off the road, get rid of photo-radar, protect
the rights to own and drive our older vehicles, and
finally found it.  They probably have resources to
help with the persistent neighbor trying to rid the
neighborhood of your restoration projects, even though
they are out of out of site or covered.

From their webpage, http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.motorists.org/
The National Motorists Association is a membership
organization devoted to representing and protecting
the rights and interests of North American motorists.

This should cover a lot of ground on all four of
my vehicle email lists.
