it's a 1960 f250 but it's not...

Following the spirit of GBSISSON's latest creation, below are some pics of my 1960 Ford F250 crew cab sitting on a 1977 Ford chassis. Donor was a 1998 6bt 12 valve with an NV4500 5 speed. Using an Autoworld mount which has been dropped 2". Conversion is being done by a fellow whose done a few fords but hasn't done one this old- he's doing a great job. Lot's of work left to do- have to figure out intercooler and cooling fan yet.

You can use Photobucket if you want. Here's a video someone made to help. How to upload pictures to the FTE Forums. - YouTube

You may notice that the engine has a forward cant in those pics. That's 'cause it's not done! It should actually be leaning back a bit but it's tilted forward and the pan is resting on the x-member in those pics because the tranny isn't bolted up yet. Which is also why the mounts are compressed at the front. Seems the cummins is a little front heavy!

had a girlfriend like that in high school.....ok, is that crossmember made from two paralell pieces of plate with a web in between? I'm talking about the one with the angled engine mounts in the photo. I have some 3/8 plate and I could make a cardboard pattern and cut them out with the torch. I'm pretty much at that stage now.

That crossmember is stamped or formed on a jig from one piece of plate I think. Check out autoworldmt.com for pics of the mounts and x-members they make. they're also very helpful folks that are happy to answer questions. They've converted one '59 Fridge.

Thanks, I'll check it out but I don't buy much. I got the engine set in today and I'll fab up a crossmember from stuff I have, but I like to see examples to copy.Today I stopped by a friend's shop to find a driveshaft and he told me to help myself to anything in the pile. I found what I needed and I will shorten it to fit. I used to spend a bit more on my trucks, but with being in a construction related business, I'm just glad I get to keep my house.And my SHOP! Your truck is Awesome btw......

Yup, good way to be- resourceful and less wasteful. I tossed that link in there more for you to get an idea- I was pretty sure you'd be making your own. They're not a cheap mount either. Truthfully I do feel a bit humbled that I'm having someone else do my conversion and have bought my mounts but I know with a new family and growing business it would be years before that rig saw the road. At least I'll be driving a truck that doesn't have a flat screen tv or park itself!

Not sure. I'm in the upper 13 (10 provinces and 3 territories that is...).

I raised 4 kids with having my own business that I started when I was 26 with a loan from the local bank. ( my english teacher would die with that sentence). I remember having no time to do ANY projects, and if your business is sucessful and you can treat yourself to an awesome 'one of a kind' truck, go for it. Most regular building contractors routinely dump 45,000.00 into a diesel pickup for work, and I even did that once. OK, it was 36,000 for a used 2002 super duty f350 I sold 3 years ago for 14,500. Worst investment I ever made, without exception. Forward this to your wife! Oh, and if it makes you feel better , an hour ago I bought a piece of 3'8 x 3" x 8' steel strap from napa for my mounts and it cost 70.00 !!! guess I shoulda stuck to rusty scrap..........
