I have some qusetions on my 57 F-100.....I think it originally was red and
white. Is there a name for the Ford colors and a paint number that I should
have when I repaint? Also, the wheels, where they white or where they the
red?Was in interior dash and door parts the red or white?
I know this a lot to ask, but being so new with my truck and so little
information, it sounds that you are "the man" with the infomation.

That's a great list, Bob. For my 60 F350, the nameplate says V, which is
Academy Blue. The grill and bumper are white, which I suppose is
Corinthian White, but what was the wheel color? Do you reckon F-350's have
the same color wheels as F-100's?

I am installing a O/D in my 53 F100 and have the same question. Would
like to hear thoughts from others on the list. I do have a friend who has a
O/D in his 55 F100 without an additional crossmember and has had no problems,
however he never gets on it and only drives it occasionally.

I want to chrome plate some of my engine parts and would like to know if
anyone can recommend a reputable reasonable priced chrome plating
company in the southeast area of the U.S.
