History 1953-1956 F-100 pics

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Chris, Mar 7, 2018.

  1. I can’t believe there is no 53-56 Ford pickup picture thread? I searched here, did a google search...nothing popped up. So...if not, let’s start one. I just bought a 55 Custom cab and looking to insperation.

    If there is a thread let’s let this die, but point me in the right direction please!

    Hopefully something else will come up, or maybe this will be the new best thread for the 53 to 56s.
    Ive had 3 53s and a 56 myself.

  11. I don't seem to remember a 53-56 only post. Being I have a serious weakness for them I tend to open everything I find on them. Yes I still have one but it's currently about as far apart as you can get one so no photos right now. I do however have a photo I snagged somewhere of what I hope to get close to when done. That Silver hair guy has all the right stuff going on. Way Kool!!

    He owned a landscaping company I believe.

  20. Yea that's a Jersey Bull. He was a bucket calf and is a pet has no fear of humans and he sometimes is kinda mean. He wanted to get my grandson Chris that day. I have sold him since the picture was taken. probably wound up as a fast food burger.

  21. Yes I need to get it around front and set the engine in there and weld up engine mounts. In my old age I don't get a lot done sometimes. Also Ive got to where I usually pull the front fenders and hood ect when changing engines. Especially when welding and fab work are necessary. I bought a short bed trailer. and a short bed frame and was going to build it into a short bed. But when I learned how rare the longbeds are and as much work as it would involve I changed the plan. My Grandson Chris is 4 and really likes the old junk. 56 ford short bed 003.JPG 56 ford short bed 004.JPG 56 ford short bed 002.JPG 56 ford short bed 008.JPG
     
  22. The red 56 I got from the Fertilizer plant. It was rusted beyond hope. had a 272 granny 4 speed and a factory flat bed. 427 rear gears. The stripped out cab was a 1 ton. it had real good doors and front cap. They went on a 56 panel truck I used to have. That cab is still viable. it needs floor pan work. setting & rotting 023.JPG setting & rotting 010.JPG

    Since this is an F100 thread, I'm gonna ask some F100 questions. I've never messed with one and dont know all the differences thru the years and what will fit on what.
    But I know of a 56 big window locally that is basically just a cab with doors on a frame. No front sheet metal, no box and the lower end would need replaced. If I could buy it and then find a nice 53-55, would I be able to basically swap the 56 cab onto the earlier chassis and have the sheetmetal line up? Could the earlier floor, lower cowl panels, and maybe even the rear cab tub be used to patch the 56?
    Whats a ballpark value on a rusty big window cab with doors and the rear glass? $800??
