Just Purchased: 1950 Ford F-1

I just purchased a 1950 Ford F-1. Truck has no motor, but I have a built 351W from a lightning that I plan to put in her. Truck has Mustang II IFS, Ford 9" rear end, little rust but good body. excited to get started working and restoring her. My great grandfather bought a 1950 F-1 brand new, and my dad's cousin still has it.

Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and show a few pictures.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on a great project. You sound like you have a very good plan. The Lightning engine will be sweet in your truck. Keep us posted on your progress.

Looks like a great start, and the Lightning 351 should be lots of fun in one of these. Welcome to the forum, and congrats on getting pictures right away!

Welcome to the forum. Like your truck but really impressed with pics on the first post. Not only do lots of guys struggle with that, they don't realize just how much we like pics. You're gonna do well here. Congrats and good luck with your build.

Welcome Black Crow!

Looks like you already figured out how to disassemble your truck. Good luck on your project and keep us posted on progress. Well done on the first post pics.

the guy I bought it from pulled parts and fenders from 3 different vehicles to get the best he could. Needs some work definitely but fairly straight fenders with no bondo and little rust. i have 2 sets of trim, and it is the real stainless trim, I have the original straight axle front end, 2 sets of headlights, 2 gas tanks (probably won't use either), etc.

Has disc brakes all around, need to figure our brake system, and also power steering box.

This is probably my favorite picture so far, just captured my daughter...her and my son already love helping me work on it. Excited to share the experience of this truck with them for years to come

A great picture! That is the age to get them interested! My daughter is 24 and could care less about my truck. She, and my wife, may like it after it is finally finished, but until then it is just something to ignore. They do both like that I love it though, it keeps me out of the house when they are watching their TV shows.

I always helped my grandfather work on plumbing, woodworking, whatever. I loved helping him, hope to pass along to my kids.

Looks like a nice project. You mentioned that you need to figure out a steering box but the pics show a steering rack (on the mustang IFS suspension). I think you just need to run a pump off your engine, plum it, and make your steering linkage. This site is great for information like this. Chances are, someone already tackled any problem you can come up with.

Welcome to FTE!

Welcome from California! That looks like a great project! The previous owner did a lot of foot work for you!

Looking forward to following your progress! I think your 351w is a great choice!
