When I made plans to build my 1956 Ford F-100 I immediately knew that I wanted to have it roll on a combination of 18-inch front wheels and 20-inch billet wheels for the rear. I wasn’t targeting the pro-street look, but wanted a minimum of a 20 x 10 inch rim for the rear, which a couple of buddies told me was impossible to do on an F-100. (Read More)

Definitely cool. Too bad I'm one of the budget conscious (poor) truck builders here

Original Paint

Can you help me find a thread somewhere that helps me with the orginal paint schemes for detail parts? I have done the research to understand the standard exterior colors, the yellow for the engine on my 56, etc. Now I am down into the finer details, for example: 1) are the inner fenders black or body colors, 2) what color should all of the clutch and brake linkages be painted, 3) what color should brakelines be painted or not at all, what about all of the clips for different things - black or body color, etc.

I just can't find these details enywhere.

Thanks for all of your help. Great site!

Welcome to the forum, McMannis! You need to do an Advanced Search to find specific info like that. NOT the big Search box at the middle/top of the page, click on the smaller Search in the blue bar and it will drop down a dialog box with the option to do an Advanced Search. Put in the topic you want to search for, and limit the search to this forum (see below.

Emergency brake (park brake) system - F2

While trying to piece my ebrake system back together (yes, I forgot to take pictures before disassembly) I used pictures from many different posts from many of you posted over quite a few years to get the answers that I needed for the entire system. My thanks to all of you who have posted. I couldn't have done this without you.

This post is an attempt to put it all together into one post. I hope that it helps not only those of you restoring F2s but F1s, F3s, etc. as I believe that most use variations of this same basic design.

Many of these parts are very hard to find.
Ford cars 1939-1948 use the same parts under a different number.

Ford Car cross reference - same parts as 1948-1951 Ford F2 Truck
