I have a 57 F100 and the door code is 110 r 22 g f 01. Can someone please let me know what this means. I am trying to verify if it is original or not and cant find info anywhere. Thanks

That series of numbers doesn't make much sense.

Better yet post a picture. My head wraps around pictures better than words, or numbers for that matter.

That is the number. Is it possible that Ford messed up when making the data tag and it should read F10 R 22G 1 01?

That looks like the second line of a serial plate. First line would be serial number
The second line sequence is.
Wheel base =110
color =r=? According to Earls world1948-1960 FORD TRUCK COLORS, NAMES, AND CODESThis may be red
model = if we assume this is missing or removed
Date=22g= 22nd July 1957
Transmission=T98-a 4speed
axle=3.70 ratio
This is info from the ford parts catalog.
Our resident expert is Bill AKA Numbersdummy who has much more experience, and has probably forgot more about ford vehicles than most will know. If he sees this thread he may shed a little more light on it.
He is probably attending the F100 western nationals this weekend.
Good luck in your quest!

How rare is a 57 F100 with a 272 4 Speed? Does anyone know the value?

That is not an easy question. Condition of course impacts value. Look around for trucks in similar condition as yours and see what they sell for.

F = Borg Warner T-98 4 Speed Manual Transmission.

01 = Ford 9" Rear Axle / 3.70-1 / 3,300 lb. Rear Axle Capacity.

Look on the Rating Plate for the VIN, the same number will be on the registration/title.
