Thought I would say Hi and show a quick photo of my 51. Bought the frame and cab 6 years ago, lots of blood sweat n tears and I took it to my first car show this last week. Lots of help reading posts from users on this forum, hope I can help others now....

The frame is boxed, c-notched, and a 1973 camaro clip. Lowered with reversing the springs and removing a few, lowering coils for the front.

Engine is a 302 ford with edelbrock dual plane intake, 600cfm edel carb, bored out fresh rebuild, RV cam, headers and dual dynomax mufflers, electric fan, original rad with new core. C6 transmission, chevy 10 bolt rear end.

Tires are 15" TT upfront and 16" 245 wide TT in the rear.

Body has a bunch of slight mods, filled bed pockets, custom tailgate, 48 ford car rear lights, tubbed box, single side glass, and I modified a 49 hood to fit the 51 for a different look. Glass fenders and boards, all painted ford black.

Ranger seats, B&M shifter, Lokar E-brake, Moon steering wheel, Airhorn, TPI quad gauge and speedo.

Interior is not finished and the box isnt. And I am still trying to find the proper brackets for my power steering!!!! AHHHHHHHHH

Welcome to FTE!

That's a sweet looking truck. I was staring at the hood, trying to figure out what I was looking at. Thanks for explaining.
