Hi boys. I've been trolling the site for quite a while and finally decided to bite the bullet and join. Bought my 56 back in December on craigslist. All it was suppose to need to get it on the road was to have the lights and gauges hooked up but, you can probably guess how that worked out. Anyway, I'm enjoying my first build and this site has helped me more times that I can remember.

Welcome 56FiveOh! Sounds like my '54. Members on the board have been a huge help. Good luck with your project and post a picture if you can.

Welcome aboard Jim. Yes, this site is nothing short of awesome, and it's the outstanding members that make it that way.
Yeah, I've heard that "all it needs is just a few this n' that's, and she'll be good to go" song and dance before. Hahaha.

Welcome to the forum. Your truck is looking good to start with. I hope some of the members are near you. It makes it nice having someone near to see at events.

Welcome! Looks like a solid truck with just a hint of the dreaded roof rot symdrome. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, I know that truck

Glad you hooked up to the site Jim. Enjoy the ride. Got back from the Ozark Mountain Run in Branson yesterday lots of trucks and F-100 folks.

Welcome. It looks like you have a solid truck to work on. Remember – taking it apart is easy; putting it back together, well that’s a Henry J of a different color.

I'll have to tell you guys. I went to buy some Parts from Jim last week. That truck has got a LOT of new sheet metal. Entire front clip (maybe not inner fenders). Just got some work to do on his cab.
