    Hi guys ... can a 1/2 ton 1952 F1 pick up accept the front end from a 3/4 ton 1952 F2 pick up?

    - hood
    - front fenders
    - engine bay panels
    - grille / etc.

    Thanks Hank

    Thanks - I understand the genders will have a wider wheel arch (potentially enable a bigger wheel diameter). Anything else to be cautious of as I’m about to buy the 3/4 ton front end

    Fenders have larger radius opening, all else is the same.

    Well you were just being politically correct with gender .:p

    What gender do you think your frontend " chooses to be ?"!

  8. Here they are side by side, you will need a large profile tile to fill the hole, 70 or 75 aspect ratio tire. the larger hole is over five (5) inches wider and the peak of the radius is taller. Don't forget 'free hats seldom fit'.

    My F1 had one F1 front fender and one F2 front fender. Yup they fit.

    Awesome response H.A.M.B. guys - comparison side by side is exactly what I needed to see ... appreciate the guidance.

    I have a mustang 5.0 engine in the 52 with a C6 Transmission with B&M shifter. Wondering what rations to have on a 9” rear end.

    That would depend on your rear wheel diameter, but if you want a highway cruiser, go with about a 3.0 rear. If you want a quicker take off, go for a lower ratio.

    Or if you want both change out the c6 for an aod and put 3:73 or so gears in the rear

    Or a C4, they are much smaller than an AOD or C6

    Point of aod is to have both lower gears for acceleration and to have the overdrive for cruising the C4 doesn't have that

    I was thinking the larger wheel opening started in an F4 and larger truck . F1 and F2 same sheetmetal front fenders . My F1 was a 302 roller engine , with a carb and a C4 with 3.25 gear rear axle . It worked fine for 70K on the clock when I sold it .

    F-1s have their own fenders, front and rear. F-2 through F-6 have the same front fenders.
