I have 1/2 of a Merc. Bought the bed from an f350, or would it have been an 'M' designation? Now I don't know whether to do a Merc clone with the front half, or sell the tailgate and get a good ford one. It's a 9' flareside. Of course it raises a lot of conversation from the general public.....

That tailgate looks good on there. I gotta ask, though, how you managed to get car license plates for your truck?

Just gave them the title at the dot office in Anacortes. It was originally a State of Washington flatbed truck, and I have it insured with my business. I am a Washington native and never knew or considered that there were 'truck' plates and 'car' plates here. I have owned over 40 trucks here over the years, we just did the count on a long drive.

Oh, so now I just looked at the plate, and it was a tester from my junk plate bucket. I had to saw the top off to mount it in my 6" 'H' beam bumper. I later replaced it with whatever the state gave me. This photo was taken while building the rear bumper, and I drilled and tapped it for a plate. Of course it has the correct 'truck?' plate on it now, and I sawed the top off that one too. I'm sure that's a federal offense to deface or alter a license plate. I'll be the guy holding his jacket acrossed his face on the evening news tomorrow, right after the guy who ripped the tag off his pillow!

I am pretty sure they made a Meteor Ranchero.57,58 I think.

Looks like you are quite right: Cars Classic: 1957-8 Meteor Ranchero

Thanks for the link Morris.I guess maybe I am going to have another look at the 58 ranchero not far away.With only 300 in 57 and a mere 52 in 58 I'd say that's pretty scarce if it a meteor!
