Bought another truck today -Duh!

Hey Shane,

Went out rootin' around today. Bought a 1937 Ford P/U - same owner since 1955. It'll look good next to the 57! Think I'll start a thread about a get together and see if there's any interest. I'll put it all together but don't want to go to the trouble unless there'll be some people show up. Is there a national club for 57-60's? ......... Bruce in Iowa

Not that I know of, but I'm workin' on it....it's a future project. I have another year of Auto Resto school, where I'm also the C.A.R.S. club Prez this year, have to organize the McPherson College Car Show in May, will be working at the Roger Morrison collection in Salina and doing my truck all at the same time!

So let's go for it. I was on the Board of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America and was State Association President for the Iowa State BCA among other things. I have a pretty solid background in non-profits. Send me an email if you get a chance as I can't email you being that I'm new to the post.

Thumbs up f-100 registry

I don't have much info on my truck. There is no plate on the door or glove box. I had to get the California Highway Patrol to verify my secondary vin, which was on the front right frame rail. That is the only number on my truck.

VIN#F10J7R12399

Sweet! Can't Pic yet, I'm a Luddite. I'll post more as I can, not willing to fight the dark now for No's. I have 2 - 60's, keeping the less collectable LWB/ Small back window because it's in such remarkable shape, perfectly acceptable original paint (one tone) red, never wrecked (couple quarter size dings), Central Oregon High Desert completly rust free Cab / front clip and chassis (outside of a pencil width / length area that collected dirt and moisture at the front of the bed), 292 / 3 on the tree with 69,000 original one family miles, with the original fairly intact seat cover. Oh! I felt lucky to find this old truck. In an effort to finance the restoration of my new 55 F100, selling my 1st 60 F100 SWB with the big back glass, It's in more typical condition for it's age. Little bit of rust at front lower cab corners, small rust opening in floorboard of Dr. side / 1/8" line rust opening in the Pass. side floorboard, Lower rear cab corners rust free, Bed rust free ( Xcept thinking about pulling a small graft from the forward bed to restore the front of the bed on my keeper), 292 / Auto. You could say I'm a fan. People who aren't wasting their descretionary money on booze and girlz can afford hobbies! Oh now for my new 55 F250 (sorry it's outside of the scope of this forum but I'm just giddy with excitement) Central CA Desert / Rust free and completly intact cab, some dings in the fenders and hood, no bed / Dually, original 272 Y 3 Spd. in the floor. Going for the Nostalgia, mild custom except I think I'll stretch a couple stepside fenders over that original Dually (saw a Pr. steel wides on a 55 F100 Dually the fella swore were an OEM option?), build the original 272 with a Pr. Ramshorn Duals, 3 Deuces, a mild cam on the low end, and open up the heads. Paint it Chartreuse, well maybe not Chartreuse. Batta Bing I got some bling. Well anyway thats what dreams are made of. Glad to find this online community, keep me posted. Thx. Shane for what you're doing, your the man. David

Welcome to FTE gang!

Hey thanks, Dave! Do what I can for the hobby! And your 55 belongs in this forum (1948 - 1960). This thread was intended only for the '57 - '60s. I think your info on your 2 '60s will put me over 100 which was my goal to start with. Only been doing this since the beginning of May!

....and if I see any "Bling" on these trucks, I'm gonna come out there and....

Hey Dlister - (your truck will be #99) can you tell me a little more about yer truck? ACtually, if you get the 2nd line of info under the VIN (118 X F100 04C A 01) I'll have it all. Also, you guys get some pics up or at least email me a few!

Thanks again! Sniff! You're making my dream come true!

My 57 still has a 3 speed. but for some what reaso I don't know someone ahead of me decided to change the steering column. It currently has the column and steering box out of a 63. It sits a little tall, but will do for now. A question I do have, is where these trucks under braked or is it just me? I put all new brakes, drums, wheel cylinders, etc. on it and it just seems like it doesn't have enough brake. Maybe I'am just spoiled driving a new truck, then getting in my 57?

The brakes on my '60 were rebuilt, then it was parked for 15-20 years. When we restored it, we put in a new master cylinder, lines, and hoses. Even with the old wheel cylinders, my truck brakes great. I think the brakes are just fine as long as you brake easily.

The old brakes are a lot "slower" than what you may be used to in the new stuff. They were adequate for the time and do a pretty good job all things considered. Kooper is right "as long as you brake easy". They sure won't stop you on a dime like discs will but since I'm older than my truck, I don't go fast anyway.....lol!........... Bruce in Iowa -

Thumbs up brake issue

Thanks guys for your input. I'm happy to hear it's just me , kinda thought the age was the problem with the brakes. I guess I just needed to hear it from someone else.

Man oh Man, I dont really know if I could even lock up my brakes, I dont follow too closely. Bobs F100 can hook you up with a sweet Booster. If you got the money honey, I got the dime... you know "stop on a dime" David
