'56 big window build second time around
Thought I would post a few pics of my current project, my second owner '56 F100. I drove the truck during my high school days when it was new. The original owner had a garage I worked at. I remember the day he brought it to work brand new from Monte Mansfield Ford here in Tucson. As the years went by I kept pestering Howard to sell me the truck. Finally in '85 he called and said it was time to put the truck in my care. He had developed leukemia. I was able to give Howard a ride in the truck after the first rebuild. He passed away shortly afterward. The old truck even got a feature in Classic Trucks, spring 92. The second rebuild mates the original frame and body back together after 25 years. Heidt front end, 383 SBC,Turbo 350, 9" rear, power brakes and steering, walnut bed wood, Meadow Green BC/CC. Thanks to all the guys who took the time to answer my stupid paint questions by the way. Tucson is a weird place to paint in the summer, too hot or too wet. Should get it shot next month. Updates to follow.
