**Need a little help with my 1955 Ford F100**

Does anyone have experience putting back together a 1955 Ford F-100? I have all the parts; I just installed a 460 and C-6 Trans. All the Parts are metal finish and primed and ready to bolt together. I don’t have a lot money but could trade out work. I’m a computer engineer by trade. Any help would be great! I’ve had the truck for about 5 years and slowly finished it piece by piece. Its ready to be put back on the street! I’m in Rio Rancho, NM

Thanks,
Carlos

I'm confused here...whose truck are we trying to put together?? fatford55 or blowncobrar??

There are some great resources availalbe for yoru truck. I'd start with getting online and checking out all the places that will give you a free catalog, Dennis Carpenter, LMC, MidFifty, etc. You might have to pay for the catalogs from some places but they are well worth and have parts breakdowns of most components. Somewhere I have a list of links for our older trucks, I'll see if I can find it.

I am also in Rio Rancho and can help, and it just so happens that I need some help getting rid of a nastly little virus in my mom-in-laws computer
