Pictures, I need Pictures.
How am I supposed to answer your question if I don't have pictures. I need food for Imagineering.

OK
I've read through this thread about 6 times, I have all sorts of ideas and suggestions. There is a problem in that all the ideas and suggestions relate to me and the afore mentioned vehicle.

I have to do some favors to the wife,now --for all the pic help!! I hate cleaning windows in the house,CRAP!! LOL
The white 56F600 is going to be an F100? But want to know what you guys say! The f100 is in-build mode,but should I build the white truck as a little truck. The f600 in black is HUGE and do not need 3 big trucks. The other is in Pa.,and getting a cummings diesel. Bill

So the white one is the one you are thinking of taking the body off of and putting it on a smaller frame?

Well if I had any money you could sell it to me.
You could sell it to someone else.
You could strip the Body off and sell the chassis and running gear

The green F100 that I am building was a F600 cab from the wrecker I got in Mass/Rhode Island. Kevin Smith got the 56 wrecker bed. He now has sold his wrecker.
I figure I will remove the sheetmetal from the white truckf600 and sandblast it,and cut out any rot. The roof and glass and dash are very nice. Then pressure wash running gear and frame and remove it all and set it all in another F100 frame. I am retrieving another 56 cab and doghouse and bed in Alabama in a few weeks and would mix and match to make a little 56f100 like the green one.
I am tired of the big wheel and tires-toooo heavy and am getting irritated about the yblock and oiling issues. I can see why some go the 289/302 route. I will then have a 1956 F600 vanbody/ 1956 F100 green pickup/ 1956 F100 pickup from the f600 AND THEN SCRAP OR SELL THE FRAMES i HAVE . I currently have another F600 going the diesel route. So----you can see my predicament!! Bill
