The grill is cream, My neighbor painted his with internatioal white
(from Fleet Farm) Its about as close as you can get.

I have a 54, with a 223-6cyl. its a red, I took a peice to the ford
garage and had it matched. I still have a paint chip, if you would
like to see it, send me an e-mail off list.

I too am restoring to orignal. Its not an easy task!!

Any pictures?

I to have just done a 12volt conversion on both my 50' and 51' F-3's. The
wiring came from Sac. Vint. Ford. The gauges on the 51' did the jump/pulse
bit until I found a short in both the cigarette lighter, and the gauge panel
itself. The cig. lighter needes to be replaced all together, but the trouble
with the gauges was the instrument voltage regulator for the 6-12volt drop.
It to came from Sac. Ford, but had no instructions as to mounting. I screwed
to the back of the panel and went on with the rewiring. Well for some reason
it caused a short and the gauges jumped/pulsed. I removed the I.V.R. from
the back of the panel and left it hang in air via a quick tie. No more
jumping/pulsing gauges.

Hope this helps!

P.S. If think Sac. Vintage Ford is the best for parts.

Check out the Job Lot in upper state New York. They had brake drums being
made over seas for 1948-56 Ford F series trucks.

Good luck.

Subject: exhaust manifold

I don't know if I qualify as a Ford Guru but.....
I put a 289 in a 59 F100 and scrounged the junk yards for a driver's side
manifold too. I think it was from an LTD or other full sized Ford mid 70's. It
exited straight back towards the firewall and I was able to make the pipe exit
above the steering box. I hope this helps!
Thanks to all of you on the list! You are the only thing that made me hold out
and buy my 6 year old a 54 F100 instead of the cherry 54 GMC around the
corner. The F100 is a serious project but we will have fun with it for the
next decade or two ;-)
Now I have my own war going because my 8 year old has a 1940 Ch**y 2 door
sedan that I gave him. Fun for all kids of any age!!!!!

thanks again
Conor
