New to this site

Hey folks, cool 48 here form West Virginia. Stumbled on this site earlier and signed up. Just bought a 48 Ford f100 yesterday. Going to pick her up next weekend. She has a 289 Mustang power with automatic overdrive tranny. I am excited to get her in my shop. I normally buy trucks and go through them. This one needs nothibng. Well, maybe some personal touches , but that is about it. I will be using it as a daily driver. I have an airbrush custom paint shop . I would just use her to take stuff to the shipper ,and short trips. Any ,I'm ramblin. Look forward to meeeting some of you guys here. Peace

Oh yes. It will get alot. I'm thinkin I will put my airbrush skills to work on the front end. It is already pearl white. Kind of has a blueish tint late at night. I may be doing some old school ghost flames on the front. They will only be seen at certain angles . Should be very cool. I make my living painting bikes,but now have the chance to do a truck. MINE!!! YEHAAAW!!

Welcome to the site. Chops, channels, suspension swaps are just a few personal touches. Enjoy your new ride.

Welcome the the best site for old ford iron. Sounds like you got a keeper. We will wait and then hound you for pics and more pics so get them on when you are able. Congrats on your purchase on one of my favorite year of F-1. It is the first year of the F designation and is one of the best looking IMO. Peace to you as well newbie.
