1960 Super Duty Crew Cab build thread

Ford had a Super Duty badged truck in 1960. Some vintage inspiration:

I started with a 1959 Ford Tseries tandem axle truck that lived in the mountains south of San Francisco as a water truck. It was advertised as scrap but was still running, a salvage company bought it and sold the front clip to me and I unbolted everything in the fog of moss bay before they crushed it. Took parts home and put it together:

Found a few other parts from an asphalt city truck from Colorado and assembled it more:

Found a nice rust free Nevada single cab F100 that was advertised for parting out:

Was driving by a Firestone shop late 2012 and saw a 1960 crew cab in disrepair, owner of shop was repairing the chassis for the navy for launching glider aircraft via winch mounted on the frame, had these large viewing windows grafted into the crew cab. I inquired and the owner said he was scrapping the cab and building an operator cage in its place!! I was all over getting the cab.

This crew cab it thrashed, roof is a total loss, along with the whole rear where someone welded up a crazy viewing window. It was used by the navy for launching glider aircraft. The front of the cab has rust everywhere above the windshield and floor pans are gone along with the a pillars. One of the rear doors is from another truck and is in excellent shape. The other rear door is good but the bottom is rusted through. B pillars are very nice except the top few inches will need patches.

I have the crew cab all sliced down to the b pillars and floor extension. The donor cab is now sliced in half. The crew cab was rusty and hacked so this was the only way to fix everything. I will need to fabricate a roof filler panel to fill the giant gap.

Here is The steel Ford Truck hood scoop that originally came on 57-85 Ford medium-heavy trucks. Originally designed to fit on a 1957 hood and matches the groves. Here is an NOS one I got:
