Pretty straight truck! Looks nice. Looks like a great project.
Defiantly needs a windshield seal and it looks like the rear cab mounts are sagging pretty badly, the truck should not look like it is bent in the middle!

Thanks Duggo. I'll post pics when I make some decent progress.
This is my first big truck project. I normally do '72 bumpside pickups but I like the look of F500/600/700s and for $750 for this one I couldn't resist stepping up to a big truck build.
I crawled all over it tonight and found it a little intimidating ... I'll most likely be asking FTE questions as I go.

Gotta do the same for my Daddyo truck, a 1942 1.5ton, old split rings. Hope to be successful. Have a look at the flickr pics https://www.flickr.com/photos/1942fo...7630229040134/
The original frame has been replaced with a straight 2ton frame, the original was swiss cheesed. No pics of the new frame yet.
