New Guy over here...

Hi All-

I am new to the forum but I am a long time Ford guy. I currently have a 68' Bronco that has evolved into a trail rig and so now I am looking for something to drive on the streets.

When I was 20 I bought a 59' F100 4x4 from a little old lady in Long Beach. I took the 292 out and rebuilt the short block .060 over with an RV grind on the cam in my junior college class but being 20 I had nowhere to keep the truck and no funds to finish it so I had to get rid of it. I still have the short block and t-bird heads (I think thy are 312 heads?) that I bought from John Mummert before he had a website.

Anyway I am looking at a 59' F100 2WD and from what I learned about Early Broncos is that I should join a forum and start learning so I don't make the same mistakes I did with the Bronco.

I'm hoping I've come to the right place for info and support on the stepchild of the F100 family, the 57-60 years

You definitely will learn a lot here. I also suggest that you check out the 57-60 Ford F100 forum on Facebook as well.
