Pictures of 60 F100 4x4 inside cab corner reinforcements?

Any one have any close up pictures of the factory inside cab corner reinforcements on a 1960 4x4?

I am thinking of buying a 60 F100 4x4 and use to have some pictures of these reinforcements-but have misplaced them.

I want to verify that the truck is a real factory 4x4. It is my understanding that these reinforcements and the GVWR are the only way to tell a factory 60 F100 4x4.5000 GVWR are base/non DSO 4x2s and 5600 GVWR are 4x4s.

Is there other things to look for in a factory 60 F100 4x4? Sure are a lot of 110 inch wheel base "factory 4x4"s out there-and I know better than that . And I think that Mr ND has stated that all factory 4x4 have horn buttons and not horn rings.Even the 4x4 Custom Cabs.

Dang it phoneman, if I had a good pic of those reinforcements I would counterfeit them for my truck. when/if I convert it to 4wd..... and I sort of got carried away reading your sig about your '92. I'm partial to that year. I love my '92 also.......

im not sure if this is what your talking about but i will post a pic of my f250 cab brace. i would assume they are the same as on a f100. they seem to be welded in after the fact becauce the welds dont look to be as good as the rest of the cab fit and finish.

GB, i could trace my brace on cardboard. write the measurements on it, then post a pic of it.

Just think about how much more dirt you could collect with a pair of those babys on the truck!

They must stiffen things up a bit!

I know this is an old thread but......... I recently found info that ANY truck weather a 4x2 or 4x4 big truck or small can have these supports. There was a "Product Service Letter" dated 1-28-58 that shows how to repair sheet metal failures (most common on the f700 through f900)


Also there is a Lock Pillar Reinforcement update TSB #424 dated June 20, 1960 it also refers to the service letter that any 57-58 ford trucks that have not had the previous updated done to do so at this time with the TSB 424


I don't have a scanner to copy this at this time , just wanted to throw a stick in the spokes!
