Wish I could help but mines 7 years older ('49) then what you need. I guessing your going to fully box the frame, since your going to use IFS and IRS. Are you building custom crossmembers? Or are you planning on building the crossmembers like the original ones? Have you found the points where the side frame rails wides and the point where the point where it angles back to parallel to the front section?

1956 F100 frame cad drawing - easier to read post

Hi
I am based in Ireland and we do not have any access to original parts. I think building the frame/suspension (JAG IFS/IRS) should be doable here. I want to put together a cad drawing of a 1956 F100 frame. Here is what I have so far. Can you guys please have a look and let me know where my dimensions are incorrect and let me have the corrections.

Using the JAG component’s I need to get the center line placement correct and then design the mounting points. There are other mounting points which are critical. These are the front and rear cab mounts, the running board mounts and the bed mounting points.
I have no reference for these dimensions (the mounting center-line from the rear of the frame and the mounting bolt/rivet layout); I will need help to determine these.

iForeman,

I've got a 53 F-100 which is the same frame as the 56, and mine's currently got no body on it currently. I'd be happy to help with any dimmensions you need. You can post what you need here, or feel free to PM me and I can give you an email address to use. You'd need to be specific about reference points and how you want things measured, for example with running board brackets do you want measured to the centerline of the bracket, front edge, back edge, center of front bolt hole, etc? Mis interpreting reference points could mean you end up with a pretty goofy fitting body at the end of the day. I'm sure there's standards (like center of bracket) but I'd prefer not making an assumption that we're thinking the same reference point.

I did a CAD drawing to create boxing plates for my frame. Because they were for boxing plates, they are segmented, but it should represent the profile of the entire frame. They are yours if you want them. Send me a PM and I will e-mail them.

Can your CAD drawings be plugged into a plasma cutter and replicated? If so I'd sure like to get a set.

The CAD drawing is a DWG file. It should be able to be converted to the program that the plasma cutter uses. Send me a PM with your e-mail and I will send it.
