1959 Crew Cab?

Hey guys! Been scouring this board for a week now and am so glad I found this community.

I wanted your expertise on this. I saw this truck on the autoworld website. It's a 1959 "Crew Cab" that someone had them put a cummins 12v and an NV4500 in. Exactly what I'm looking to do to an older ford for a future daily driver. I'm liking the utility of crew/super cabs but I can't figure out how they did it. I'm guessing he mated two cabs together since Ford didn't offer a crew till 1969. What do yall think?

Good to be here.

Welcome to the Best Darn Ford Tuck Site in the World.

Ford did make "Crew Cab's" during this era, they were Fleet Order, for the Military, Railroads, Lumber Industry, and others.

Hang around, Others will have more information.

That should be quite the rig - what sort of steering does it have? Anyway, there are several crew cabs on this board. They were built by a speciality company - you should be able to find a nameplate with a serial number on it. They were sold through ford dealerships. I think someone said there were more than 6,000 of that bodystyle made.

Ahh, special order fleet trucks. A much harder find I'm sure. Gotta keep my eye out. I'd love to see more pics of the crews. I searched the gallery and didn't see any though.

That truck is someone's that was posted on autoworld's site. I just linked the image from there.

Cheers

mauldus -

You will see some factory-built crew cabs on this forum, but others have made their own. Keiths56_Cruz_Cab is an excellent example. Keith took two 56 cabs and massaged them into a beautiful 4-door crew cab with rear suicide doors. He also chopped the cab 3 1/2 inches in the process. I've seen this truck up close and it's a winner! Check out his gallery (below) for ideas.

BTW, Kieth is considered an ultimate "darksider", since this truck will never be mistaken for something that was stock.

My "Blue Book of Special Order Options" lists several Companies that Specialized in "Crew & Sleeper Cab Models" for F-100's & up.
They Stretched the Cab Using Ford Factory Doors w/ a little judisious trimming here & there to fit along w/ a 6' Bed.

I remember seeing a pic on the internet of a 53-56 3 door crew cab for the railroad.

Lost the link and pic when my computer crashed.

I'll see if I can locate it and post the link.

Another tough truck

I saw this one sitting behind a body shop down in the "oil patch" in SE New Mexico. Its an old roustabout truck and a bit newer for this particular forum, but interesting none the less

Was the 56 3-door railroad truck a light blue color? I saw one in a magazine a few years ago.

For some reason, I think it was a light blue, but I'm not positive.

And it was a few years ago that I saved the link/pic, but lost it.

It may have been from an issue of "Classic Trucks" magazine.

Hmmm! I must do some more searching.

The old Truckin or classic trucks. I will dig when I go home tomorrow and see if I can find it. I am pretty sure I had it at one time.

It could have been in Truckin.

Hmmm! I know it was during the time I got my first computer, which was sept. 2001.

So it could have been 2002 or 2003.

I should have saved the address on good old paper.
