brendanmason is starting off with a positive reputation.
Glad to hear it! I have a '58 F100 w/ a 292 w/ a 3-on-the-tree backed by a 9" Ford rear end. My parents bought it for me in high school and I appreciated it, but didn't love it...I had my heart set on a '56 F100! After pouring who knows how much time, blood, sweat, tears, AND money to get it running so I had a ride, it slowly started to grow on me. Now 11 yrs later I have definitely fell in love w/ it (as well as the '57-'60 body style) and am looking forward to slowly restoring it as time and money permit. I have many ideas for it and ,in typical fashion!!, the only things slowing me down are time, money, and space! Keep me in the loop on what he does. I would love any tips or advice on it. I have already ran into the problem of there being way more '53-'56 F100 aftermarket acessories than there are for the '57-'60 F100's. Good Luck w/ it!

I'm just glad to get the chance to pay your dad back a little. I owe him for letting me eat up all his floor space for eight days.

Great, can't wait to see it. I found a 79 on a paintball course I am getting the tailgate off of and maybe some extra small inside stuff. Gotta love free stuff! LOL

So thats what you guys were up to today..

Is the 57 going to be a full resto or a everyday cruiser?

Was the motor with it?

I think it's going to be a resto....but there's an issue with the numbers not matching so it won't be a concourse restoration.

It has the engine and tranny. 223 inline six and a three on the tree.

I guess I don't know what numbers matching means then. I thought that meant that even the sheet metal had to be the original.

Sheet metal on older vehicles didn't have any vin # s on them like todays do, with the older iron matching #s means the original drivetrain , options that match info tag like paint , trim . Some options were dealer installed on some vehicles and didn't show up anywhere except the bill of sale, AC, West coast mirrors, extra fuel tanks, excreta ,and so long as those are era correct and proven dealer options it is considered #s matching.
