1952 Ford F1 daily build

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by THR1LL3R, Jul 26, 2012.

  1. Once again you did another nice, clean build. Very sanitary. What did you do for motor mounts on the 302? Stock radiator?
     
  2. I just got the biscuit style mounts, using a aluminum speedway cheapy

  6. Color sanded the 15 year old paint and doesnt look to shabby...all new side glass including the anti rattle kit and also installed the speedway cheapy aluminum radiator. Anyone know where i can get the door handle pins and the pins/springs for the window wings?

    Check out Classic Haulers they have the gear for your wing windows.. Looking like a little bling with the Rad.. The paint looking real fine..
    Classic haulers 877-252-1948 What Mc did you use? Thanks
     
  10. Thanks. the Rad is a cheapy so if it blings I guess that's extra bonus ha although I did paint the front. The master clynder is the 67 mustang style

    I would change anything, but I think you should find the F-O-R-D letters that go on the hood. Maybe also get someone to letter the tailgate the same way.

    GREAT TRUCK MAN......

    Man, 302's are just ugly! Mine came out of a van too! But I wasnt smart enough to find one that ran...

    I really like the simple approach and thanks for the pics.

    I think some 302s have the stock clean look and some have a little more color..;)

  18. Why? Cause I don't have any shitty colored wires?
    They look just like a SBC except dizzy location.
    I wanted it stock looking and clean.


    Got to enjoy it a while...,

    Well sorry I offend you. I like the truck and the engine does look clean under the hood.

    So Doctor you got it under the Knife so whats up with the new Wheels? Can we get a little looksey?? Man it would be hard to do what you are doing after all the work you did to get the truck to this stage. Man it would be hard not to keep driving..Great Job!! Hope mine turns out 1/2 as good as you ride!!

    You're going to dig the AOD. I had an 289 with an aod in my 56. That truck would cruise at 80, it was awesome.
