And you can buy all the replacement brake and suspension parts through them. Hope this helps.

It's nice to hear that you ar also building a '56 F250! I remember my grandpa also used to have one of those trucks back in the day. Good luck and keep it up!

Josh,
Just recieved my first shipment of parts yesterday from LMC. The advice to check with Mid Fifty F-100 Parts was a good one. They have long box running boards as well as other parts for F-250 long box trucks. Anyone know if a Motorola radio from a 1953-55 is the same as one in a 1956? Found one on ebay but can't tell if it is the same. Off and running, Dads56

Any updates with the thread starter? I would really like to see some pictures as it reminds me of some good old days with my grandpa's truck.

Sherman hasn`t back since 10-28-2003 so I doubt we`ll ever have any updates unfortunately.
As for the 53-5 radios being similar I don`t know
( some how I doubt it) but 56 would be 12 volts and the 53-5 would be 6 volt.

My 56 is a 6volt. I am going to start searching the junk yards for radio parts. Tried to get some pics posted but I know less about computers than I do renovating my pickup, I'm in trouble! I'll have to get my son to help cause I give up.

A 56 should be 12 volt. Are you positive it`s really a 56?
