56 F100 Project

Hey All - Thought I would start a thread showing the progress on the 56. Can't let old Pat have all the fun!

The Day I bought the 56


The Gibons Torsion Bar (78 Cordoba) Front Suspension Installed


The Hot Rod (56 F100) and The Work Horse (69 F100)


Cutting out Rust and welding in new Body panels and Floor Pans.


Frame Sandblasted and ready to install Rear 4 Link Triangulated Suspension


Cab interior painted and ready to mount back on frame (The Color is a GM Pewter Metalic and is GORGEOUS!)


Firewall straitened, fixed and painted (turned out better than I had hoped).


Thats where I am at to date. The chassis should be done in a couple of weeks and if the weather stayes nice may even get to do some more work on the frame! More pictures in my gallery so feel free to look. Who knows maybe with some luck (and more money) I will have it somewhat assembled by Cruise Night!

Awesome, George, I'm glad you did this! Easier to see than trying to dig through one big thread. Looking good, I want to see this thing when we come to Kearney next month!

I'm there brother! I'm going to try and bring both the Mustang, and the 39 George. Depends on if my brother is going to go or not.

Dang George, that 56 is moving right along. Mine is still sitting in my shop collecting dust. Seeing you work on yours kinda gets me thinking that I better get my rear in gear! Probably wont happen for a little while now since i got 2 race cars now. Oh well, looks good! Maybe I wont be so stuck up this year and swing on by your place to chat. Im looking foward to some warm weather also.

You better swing by Anthony - Its always entertaining cause you never know who may show up. We get a little tamer each year - No one has been arrested for quite some time but you never know - We might bust one loose one of these years!

More Progress - Brought the Doors home today. Interior of doors are painted and exterior have been blocked and reprimed for final blocking.



These are two picture of the BearClaw latches installed. These are great! The striker is made to bolt up to the original cab latch. They allow you to use the original exterior door handles and original interior door handles. They lock like the originals (pushing handle down) and using key to lock drivers door.





PS - I'm BROKE!

Hey George, you may need to think about selling tickets to your cruise nite BBQ to raise some extra cash for your project...

Maybe George, you should sell raffle tickets for your 69 ford, then maybe I could get a shot at it... .

Anthony - I'll leave you my truck in my will Its starting to need a little more work. This winter is taking a bit of a toll on the old dog. Going to put a couple of new fenders and fix some rust on the rockers and of course build the 410. Hope I can get another year out of it before I have to do that!
