'56 F600 sheet metal on '56 F100 frame

Hiya all

What would I need to do to make a F600 sheet metal (Cab and front fenders,etc.) fit onto a F100 Frame. (if anything)

Thanks

Ian

I honestly dont think anything. You are aware that the fenders from a F600 have a wider wheel opening though correct? Thanks

All the mounting points are the same and as tacson mentioned the wheel well opening are much larger than the F-100. The rear portion of the fender sits lower than the F-100 also because the running boards are lower on a F-600 probably because the frame is 8 inches compared to the 6 inches on the F-100

Hi there, planning to do the opposite way, put the f100 body into a modern f350 frame and will need the F600 fenders. In case you want to use the smaller f100 ones just let me know and we can trade them.
Thanks!

You'll need a lift kit. The fender bottoms will drag the ground. Other than that, they'll bolt on.

Where are you located? I have a nice pair of F500 fenders and I'd like to get a better driver's fender.
