I just dragged home a new project a 1929 Ford closed cab pickup. I know I'm
in the wrong list for the 29 but my question is I have a chance to buy a
351c 4v to put in it for $450.00. Dose this sound like a fair price? I was
told it came out of a 73 mustang mach1 I don't know if I should believe this
or not. Where can I find a place to decode the numbers or is there a casting
number on the block or heads that should give me a clue. Also if anyone has
done a model a pickup I would like to hear from them.-----Thanks Doug

The f4 had an 84" wide by 109 long flat bed.  Today's beds are 8' wide for
this size truck.  I just put an 8 footer on my F4.  Good Luck

There is a web-site that deals in flatbed repros that I have lost the link
to. It seems it was in N-East or Carolinas maybe. I must have gotten the
link from somewhere like www.ford-trucks.com or someone off of that maybe.
They offer several styles, sizes and trims, using the Script Ford in the
back like an original. I myself have used 2x3 rect tube and made a  frame,
lined with small angle and U-channel cross-runners sunk down some to allow
me to use 5/4 lumber for a deck. I used 4" u-channel for the two long main
runners along frame top. The wood sets down in the frame on the angle all
the way around and screws on from underneath. I then use 2x2 (actually
1-1/2") square tubing welded up in nice shape for a headache rack at cab.
Looked real nice after paint and staining of wood. You can make anything you
desire with good metal band saw and a welder! Good Luck!                 "G"
