new owner 57 f100

Hello Everyone,

This is day 2 after delivery of my 57 f100 yesterday. It's a good solid body with minimal rust. The truck was owned and used by a dealership in Indy as a parts runner vehicle. Currently has a 351C under the hood. 3 speed on the tree. If someone might help, I would like to know the original specs and have included the available info as follows:

F10K7011897 5000 110 145 4100

3LD 3.70 J 6B348586T

Thanks in advance for any guidance and counsel.

Best Mark

From off the top of my head:

F10K7011897 :
F10 = f100
K = Kansas City, MO
7 = 1957
011897 = serial no.


5000 = Gross vehicle weight rating

110 = wheelbase

145 = H.P.

4100 = RPM

I'm kind of lost on the rest (second line in your info)

J (maybe engine code?)= 223ci 6Cyl 1BC Carb
