Here is the new 53 f100

About three months ago I bought a 52 F100 and got a decent deal on it. Well, I came across an original 53 V8 flathead truck, so I sold my 52 to my buddy who I will be helping to restore it.

The new 53 is very original with solid floors and quarters. The only real issue is the venting on the passengers side between the door and front fender. Do they make a replacement panel for this? Also, one of the valves is sticking on the engine. It currently turns over, but will will not start. I have not dug into it yet.

Looks like you are starting out with a nice one there. Nice find! I don't know much about the flathead sixes, (still learning), and I know even less about the flathead eights, but that one looks like it would be a breeze to replace the points in compared to some I've seen.

I don't know anything about them lol I hope to figure a way to get one of the stuck valves working. Maybe soak it with marvel oil? Also want to find a good replacement panel for the vent area.

Ya may have to pull the intake to free up the valve.
I use a 50/50 mix of acetone and atf.
Looks like a solid truck. Hope it don't take ya
to much to get her to run and stop. Than just drive her
for a while and let her tell ya what she wants.

That's pretty much my thinking too. Just drive it for awhile. My wife wants disc brakes and power steering at some point lol
