Hello!

Hello! Just a quick introduction:
Been reading quite a bit here and gaining some great info. Already had a post where members helped me ID an odd finding on my new truck (half of a aftermarket pre-heater). So Thank you guys.

I've recently picked up a 1958 F100 - 272, 3-spd column, seems mostly stock and in decent shape. Rust in the normal areas, etc. Runs and drives but doesn't do either fantastically. Alot seems worn out so I will be just replacing and refurbishing and driving it....keeping it stock-ish.

I already have loads of questions. So, thanks in advance. Picked up my shop manual last week so that's connecting most dots.

Here's some photos:

I agree with all the above. And Meadow green to boot! Very nice. Really hoping you keep the painted steel wheels. That's important in my book.

Thank you all. Yes, I love the Meadow Green as well. I really like the off-white contrast but cant place the color anywhere quite yet.
Keeping the orig steel wheels as is (sans beauty rings) but they're painted normal white. I'd like to get them to the correct color to match the grill/bumpers.

Those front tires are terrible and the wrong size so I'll be replacing them. I'm thinking 235/70-15 all around , anyone run sizes like that?
