I'll add my welcome. I sure like the 57 - 60 body style in 4x4 configuration. Good score.

As for your wheels, I suggest going back a few pages on the thread listing to find one entitled "48 F3 brake and wheel question". Even tough this was directed to the earlier model truck, much within that thread deals with 17.5s and applies to your truck. Good luck with it. It's a great looking truck.

Looks like a great 59. It appears to be original paint inside with the original seat cover. Those white shift ***** are original and hard to find especially the transfer case ****. The inside cab looks pretty good and original. The grille guard is original. I have a 60 3/4 ton 4x4 and they are fun and easy to work on. If all is original you would have the dana 60 16 spine rear axle and dana 44 front closed knuckle. Good luck and if you have questions let us know. I can help look for 4x4 parts. I have a few friends that work on these trucks.

Does anyone have any specific suggestions for wheels/tires to give the original skinny tire look? I was thinking 17.5 or around there. 19.5" may be overboard for me. The picture below motivated me to buy this truck. I've got a ways to go!

Cooper tires still manufactures the Original style tires that came on our trucks & Hercules HDT is a cheaper knock-off of them that you are able to purchase as well.

Hi Dave, and welcome.

Very nice truck you have there.
I don't know what shape your bed mounting blocks are in, but here's an old thread that might help you if yours are deteriorated or missing.

1959 Ford F-250 4x4

I recently bought one of these 1959 F-250 4x4's and have figured out where I can get most of parts, but I am having trouble finding an original seat. I was wondering if I could get any suggestions as to where to find an original seat, new or used.

Probably places like Craigs list/Ebay motors/and swap meets. I bought a OEM bench seat for my 48F1 at the big annual "huge" swap meet up in Portland, Ore. I don't see where you live, but the "big" swap meets pretty have everything. And you'll likely find one. I paid a OK price for mine at the swap meet in Portland. Its hard to buy a seat on eBay or Craigs list etc--assuming it will be shipped/more expensive than the seat!! Unless you can find a seller near you and can drive there for pickup. Good luck. You'll find one. They're around.

Oh I see in your first post that you mention Eastern Iowa--must be some "big swap meets" near you. Maybe someone will come on with some specifics.

1959 Ford F-250 4x4

I am in Central Texas and thanks for the info. Also, do you think I would be better off buying the rust free 2wd parts truck i found near me to replace the very rusted cab and bed of my 4x4 or just fixing the severe rust? They are asking $650 for the parts truck. I was trying to start a new thread but I couldn't figure it out. Could anyone direct me in the right direction?

1948 - 1960 F1, F100 & Larger F-Series Trucks - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

This link--you may have to copy and paste in your browser--don't know if you can just click on it or not. But it will take you to the usual forum for your particular year truck etc. And then look for the blueish colored somewhat large box on the left that says "new thread" and click on that and put in a title and message, etc. Practice. It will become clear in time. Hope I've given you good directions. If not go to home page and look for the 48-1960 forum. Mostly that's where you'll want to be.
