1956 F100 Project

Scored this basket case over a year ago and figured it was time to share some of the progress.

Great looking chassis!

What kind of power plant do you have in mind?

Thank you.

Induction still a mystery.

tetfemal is starting off with a positive reputation.
Great chassis! I'm looking to build a 56 as well. Mind sharing the specs on the chassis?

Not quite sure what you mean by specs, here's what i did:
Completely disassembled
Sandblasted using HB in a homemade booth (2x4 and plastic)
Sprayed with POR15
Stock suspension
Disassembled leaves, sandblasted and painted
All new bushings
New shocks
CPP I-Beam disc brake kit

Hope this helps.
