Hi everyone

I'm thinking about selling my 55.  I have about 16K+ in it.  I'd like to get
somewhere in the neighborhood of 12K obo.  I live in north Alabama and
pictures can be seen here:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1182411&a=8708088  Serious
inquires only please and I can't deliver.  I haven't made up my mind totally,
if I want to do this or not, but if someone has the money, I may decide to go
ahead and get rid of it.

Anyway, it has had a complete body off restoration in '90, has '73 Mustang
302 with about 7K on it, auto tranny was professionally rebuilt in August of
2000, custom interior, etc.  If anyone has any questions, please ask me, I'll
answer as best as I can.

Thanks
Jason Maples

I asked a question and I got the right answers I was looking for within
this group.  They are varied and informative but, ultimately I'm most
interested in the OEM Mustang II.  I probably am forced to make such a
choice in that the 'budget' enforces the rules and my desire for
satisfaction is dependent on developing TALENT.. and lots of it!  So,..
ahem...  Tim, you stated that you recieved your front clip from a friend
of yours within your club.  This has me wondering if your 'group' has
done this before successfully and are fully aware of it's limitations
and tolerances.  I mean, you stated it was DESIGNED FOR A 3500 lb
VEHICLE.  Hmm.. I believe the last time I weighed my '60 F-1 it had a
gross weight of 3600 lbs.  I would surmize that the '50 with only the
flathead and no staight axle and springs would weigh less.

I am definately interested in any photos you can provide.  Perhaps with
some of your photos and some more assurances from 'seasoned' veterans of
the classic truck modification sector I would feel assured to proceed
with the endeavor to do the same.  I'm not adverse to the work... as a
matter of fact I take pride in the process to reconstruct the
crossmember to fit the '50.  But,... heh.. safety first!  Plus, it would
please my wife in that I start night school at the end of this month and
will be going to  Tech school for a 1 1/2 years and will only be earning
part time pay.  Not exactly the time to start talking spending a few
grand on a premade clip.  TIA

RE: I have seen a site that sells braces for OEM lower A arms that
eliminates the need for the struts to the rear.  They are inexpensive
and can be installed within an afternoon.  I found it in Classic
Magazine June 2000.  You can see these braces at "Full Tilt Street Rods"
970 255-8890 or www.fulltiltstreetrods.com

      I did want your talking about to my 52. I had to widened the cross
member four inches. I used all stock Stang parts so if I need something down
the road I can get it anywere.I did order the rotor from "Speedway". That way
I got a five on five bolt pattern, now it's the small pattern but when I but
the nine inch in the back they will match. I also used a stock Stang II
master cylinder mounted in the stock location I had to make a bracket but
that was it. I also used the stock rod on the lower control arm. I'm working
on a very low budget also. I've but about 4,000 miles on this setup with no
problems. When I weighed my flathead powered 52 at a buddies truck scales it
came it at 2975. If you want I have some pictures at the following sites. If
you want something different let me know. <A HREF="http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=34454&a=217601">Truck PhotoPoint</A>  <A HREF="http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://members.aol.com/flathead52/ford.html"> my home page</A>

I'm looking for a running 292 motor.
Anybody have one of these for sale, or know anybody?

Thanks...

I beleive the wire should come out right in center of nut at end of steering
box. should be hole there, that is the hollow end of the entire steering
shaft. Maybe it is plugged up with grease or ?
