LMC has Radiator Supports for 1965 F100

I just got my new LMC catalog, and while I am not thrilled with their quality, I saw they are advertising a radiator support for a 1965 F100/F250 2WD. I looked back at some of NumberDummy's post and he said the Parts for 65 and 66 2wd radiator supports are

Not reproduced: C6TZ-16138-B = 1966 F100/250 2WD.

Not reproduced: C6TZ-16138-C = 1965 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F100 4WD.

So does this make it easier to convert? or is the 65 as different as the 64? $300 didn't seem bad, but I am concerned about the quality.

Hopefully this might be sign of things to come. Maybe some of the better parts places might start building them also.

So you bought a radiator support? Any modifications required?? I have the same truck and I definitely need a support soon.

Id be willing to bet alot of the repro pieces come from the same factory in Asia somewhere. Cant be too many places making this stuff. All the pics Ive seen in DC, BOTP, LMC, Macs all look about the same.

I wish they would make new inner fenders for the 65-66 2wd's...

camperspecial65 has a good reputation on FTE.camperspecial65 has a good reputation on FTE.camperspecial65 has a good reputation on FTE.
The only core support available for a 1965 Ford truckis for the 4WD as they use the same support as all 61-4 trucks in the F100-350 series 2 AND 4WD....
The 65 2WD version is one unto itself and 66 F100 2 AND 4WD as well as F250 2WD use their own as well...
The early core sup't has a C1TZ p/n, the 65 2WD has a C5TZ p/n and the 66 has a C6TZ p/n....

LMC doesnt use Ford p/n so w/o the Ford parts catalog you dont know what fits what years and models....Does the LMC catalog mention anything for larger series F or B series trucks that support fits???? No... But the repopped support does fit other F and B series models....I know as I have the Ford MPC...

I knew most of what you are saying, but the new catalog list one for a 65 2wd f100/f250. It is the first time I have seen one for a 65 or 66 F100 2wd. I know that Ford left the 4x4's basically a 64 cab, and front clip, so the older stuff works. ul37 said he bought one, and I would like to know if there was much modding to get it to work in a 66. The only differences I was aware of was the radiator mount points.

I know that Ford left the 4x4's basically a 64 cab, and front clip, so the older stuff works.
1966 F100 4WD's use the same cab as 1965/66 F100/250 2WD's. It does not have the inner step that other 1961/66 4WD's (and etc) use.

It also uses the same radiator support as 1965 F100/250 2WD's (C6TZ-16138-C), has coil spring front suspension, 1961/66 F100/250 2WD front fenders, and...

Uses the 1964/66 F100/250 2WD Styleside bed, not the "wrong bed" other 4WD's use.

The repopped core support that Don referred to that has been available for several years is C2TZ-16138-G =

1961/64 F100/250 2WD/4WD / 1961/66 F350/600 / 1965 F100/250 4WD / 1966 F250 4WD / 1961/66 B500/600 (B = School Bus).

Who repops the 1965 F100/250 2WD, 1966 F100 4WD radiator support? I doubt it's LMC, who doesn't reproduce much of anything, as LMC is a "middle-man" operation.

Most of what you see in their catalogs, they buy from the other repop sellers and from autoparts stores.

Numberdummy, I don't know who repops this, but this was the first time I have seen anyone claiming to have a 65 model radiator support.

I have not have good luck with LMC, and that is why I posted here. I also thought others might want to know someone is making these.

I get somethings wrong like the cab thing, but I was posting this as information, to see if anyone else had been bolder than me and bought one, and to find out if using a 65 support would make the modifications less than if I bought a 64 support. I posted part of a previous post to show that you posted the numbers are different for 65 and 66 F100 2wd. I just don't know what the difference is, and wanted to know.

I took a picture of the page from LMC's catalog to show what I am talking about.

43-2855-T = C2TZ-16138-G .. But the 1961/66 F350/600 applications are omitted.

Since LMC makes up their own prices, their List/Sell wild mule p!ss prices are designed, so the unwary assume they're getting a discount.

Uh huh...The same discount one gets from Ben Dover Automotive.

NumberDummy, I understand what you are saying but the question still remains, what are the differences between a 65 F100 4x2 radiator support (C6TZ-16138-C), and a 66 F100 4x2 radiator support (C6TZ-16138-B).

Just curious how did you translate 43-2855-T to C2TZ-16138-G If it fits a 65 F100/F250 as the ad says wouldn't it have to be a C6TZ-16138-C?

The radiators mounting flanges are in different locations.

Fixed it for you.

Look at the 43-2855-T applications in LMC's catalog, now look at the applications I typed for C2TZ-16138-G in post #8 (and a gazillion more times in other threads).

43-2857-T = C6TZ-16138-C = 1965 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F100 4WD.

No I didn't have to modify the core support. That is only because the PO used the wrong front clip when he crashed it.Although thats the case with my truck someone on this site, I forget who it was, took the angle brackets off his old support,the ones that hold the inner fender wells,and attached them to the new support.Heck the truck had two different front fenders on it when I got it.Yes my truck is a mutt,but I wouldn't hesitate to go on a long trip any day of the week.
Anyway the support I put into my truck was of good quality and has been in service for 2 salty New York winters with only the primer they ship them with.

I wonder what the difference is between the newly offered 65 support and the 61-64 that's been re-poped for a while now. I'm thinking the 65 still has the round inner fender mounts and the same radiator mount as the 61-64, so what's the difference?

I bought a 61-64 support last year and modified it for my 66 2wd. It took a few hours to transfer the inner fender mounts, remove the radiator mounts, and to drill new holes to mount my radiator and battery box. Interesting that they now offer a 65 2wd support, but not the 66 yet.

65 and 66 both have the squared fenders. When you buy the 64 you have the change the brackets on the fenders for inner fenders.
