It may be off topic, but I found it interesting and learned something new today. I've never seen or heard of the project. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for taking my words out of context, Chuck. It's always interesting to read your comments belittling others while making yourself into a big shot.

Your blaster is correct and wise. He did you a favor by not blasting all the filler out and warping your panels. It comes off much easier and faster with a grinder, and without all the heat. If it...

51 divided by 13 = 3.92.


The next question would be, what size tires do you have on the rear?

You can drill the hole, but it won't do much good. The stock setup used a unique door latch found only on the deluxe trim/interior "extra cab" trucks for 51/52. In addition, there's a special bracket...

To gain additional top speed, you need a higher final gear ratio (lower numerically), gained by either swapping the rear gears or adding an overdrive gear to the transmission. Your current Dana rear...

Pretty close. That's about all I got for the F8 hulk I disposed of. 7000 pounds for $180. I'm sure his panel weighs about half that.

I say go for your plans. These old trucks are not Ferraris or anything of the like that have actual "collector" value. Making a F250 into a F100 will likely do more for resale than not. The frames...

It takes an 1 7/16" socket. An air gun like those used for changing tires works well for the nut. A pitman arm puller should take care of the rest.

I don't know anything about jag ifs, but imho, that steering shaft is way too close to the exhaust for my comfort. The constant heat cycling on that part is a recipe for failure. I'd be looking for a...

That really looks nice. Just right, by my eyes. $100 isn't bad for a set of 4 brackets. You'd be hard pressed to make them for that if you bought the steel, added in the cost of consumables to cut,...

Hagen hidden hinges are the best ones I know of. AFAIK, they are the only aftermarket hinge with a check mechanism built in like an OEM hinge. Others are just a cheezy swinging strap. The kit may be...

As the others mentioned, the new style rating plate was introduced in September, '51, which replaced the old style rating plate and eliminated the firewall patent plate.

Sorry, but that's not a Mercury panel vin. DF is the code for a Ford F-3. The rest says essentially 1952 Ford F3, 8' Express Pickup body, Standard trim, built in Windsor, ONT.

Hope this helps.
