Zzmaxx that is one nice panel. Nice Job. What sizes are wheels and tires? tire brand? Wish my 52 was that far along.

I have a 50 panel, all stock, fully restored. It's a looker like Liz Taylor was in 1980.looks really good from fifty feet away, but the plumbing doesn't all work right.

Sorry wrong year... But it's a one ton and that's what I like best. Bought it last week and it is still in Minnesota. I have a correct rear axle for it that I'm putting brakes in and it might get delivered in January or February. You won't see it burning rubber, but you might see it burning diesel.

Count me in. Mine is a 52 that has been in my family since 1958. I just ordered doors, running boards, and a lower valance from a scrap yard in Oklahoma. These parts were characterized as relatively rust free. I'm hoping for the best. A fellow FTE member is working on the front fenders for me, as I have no welding skill or experience. The fenders should be done by spring.

I have all those parts from a dry western climate but shipping would a lot more from CA than from OK.

Thanks! I might do that if I can get all of the "bugs" out of it and can trust it to drive that far from Nashville. I am getting there slowly. Finally fixed my fuel delivery / power valve problem, and put in a Pertronix electronic ignition module, and got the parking brake fixed.

Well, you have 9 months to finish that baby.

See what I did there?

I'd love to see your panel at Truckstock!

According to Google it's only a 2 1/2 our drive to TS'15 from Franklin. That's a Sunday afternoon drive. I plan to drive either the F-2 or the panel down from SE WI, I think it's about a 650 mile drive using all back roads because the old Fords are stock and don't like modern interstate traffic. I figure it'll take about 12 hours one way. We drove the F-2 to Doc's in '13, about 800 miles one way, it was a blast.

Especially considering how few were produced each year.

About 10-12% of the number of pickups.
