Sorry, That is all I can remember, Sold that truck years ago. I'd take
the core to a fleet farm or similar, and look. It was a direct bolt up
and the piston throw was exact. Sorry I can't be of any future help

I was sent a pic of an old bread truck by a guy and he thinks that it
is around a 1956 truck. I took a look at the pic and think that it
might not be a Ford. If anyone would like to take a look at it they
can, it's at: If anyone
does know what it is then please e-mail me off the list.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Archives are now searchable

Searchable archives are now on the web site. All 60+
megabytes of archives are searchable. Due to the
nature of searching, the archive results are email
address "harvester" resistant. You can only browse
the archives with search terms and harvesters are not
smart enough to do that.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '56 to '54 conversion

Hello all,
I am in the process of buying a '56 F100 Custom Cab with a Thunderbird 312
/ Ford-O-Matic combo to use in my '54 F100. I am looking for advice /
opinions on whether it would be better to put the engine/trans/etc. in my
'54 or swap my '54 body on to the '56 frame. Any ideas? Both frames and
springs are in about the same condition.

The body on the '56 is totally shot, but I will end up with a batch of
extra parts because I will strip any usable parts off the truck. The doors
and dash are about the only usable body parts but guage cluster, wiper
motor, etc are all good. E-mail me with your needs and I'll let anything I
can't use go for cheap! For shipping cost ideas, I am in Santa Cruz,CA

Hopefully it will be in my garage by the middle of the week!

Thanks in advance,
'54 F100 - Pokey
'79 Bronco - Tweety
'40 Chevy Sedan (unnamed but original)
