I just bought a 59 f-100 that somebody started customizing and either went broke or gave up. Steering this thing is going to kill me, will putting in new king pins make a big difference? Is there a way to convert to power steering? Where do you find aftermarket parts in general? I bought a 67 c-10 a couple of months ago and there are parts everywhere for it, but I'm not finding a lot of sources for Fords so far. By the way, I now have a 67 c-10 step side for sale. This f-100 is a beast!
I'm not so familiar with parts specific for that year as I've got 51-53 trucks but as Fred said check there and if your having trouble finding a specific part let us know.
btw is your truck a 2 wheel drive or a 4x4? I almost got a 59 4x4 a couple years ago cause I love that year but am glad I didn't as it was really rusty and I have too many projects already.... maybe someday..

2wd stepside. it's been lowered, and has disk brakes. the body and frame are pretty clean. i really like the earlier fords, but this truck looks good and has a built 460. it needs to be cleaned up inside the cab and painted and i could probably call it finished. i'm sure i'll keep going, though.
Welcome to FTE, When i got started i bought a classic trucks Magazine and sent away for a catalog from every ford products add in it. over the years ive found a few places i like better than others, a few you cant go wrong with are Sacramento Vintage Ford, Classic Haulers , Mid Fiftys , Job Lot, and many others they all have web sites you shouldnt have any trouble finding what you need . You are welcome here, so hello and may you have a good build.
good to see another 59 owner. part of me wants to leave the steering like it is just because it's a challenge to drive. after market heat and air are going to be high on the list too. i think that will be pretty easy.
