Is this on jackstands?
I think it's something called "stock ride height", whatever that is...
When you come out for the poker run Crashnburns, I'll show YOU how to bend a tie rod! HAHA
Man I cant wait to start on mine
Here is mine, just about due for a Industrial Chassis Inc IFS, Cleveland V8 and AOD tranny.

I think I showed you first, actually. They are alot weaker than they look.
Just a couple of my 59.
More, More, MORE!
photochop of mine
Anyone know the tires sizes on the black truck??? Found an article on the truck no mention of tire size
Thats my buddy Colby's truck, theyre BFG silvertowns all around a lil wider in rear, I can find out later this week when I see his truck again and PM you with the sizes if you'd like.
That would be awesome. I just picked up 58 F100. Thanks dude
Local houston truck.
Not sure Im sold on the skirts.......
Is the Chevy bed real, or Photoshopped on?
I've often wondered how a 59/60 would look with the Chevy bed. Looks pretty cool.
Brought this home today. Has a 302 with a C6 tranny. First order of business....correct wheel and tires.
Oh yeah...thats the former owners plate.....
Here's mine. you may have seen it at the 08 roundup.
That is a sharp-lookin' truck. Do you have interior photos?
Also, I think a '59/'60 bumper would really finish off that truck nicely. Just a suggestion.
Thanks, it's really just my hauler. I thought about tucking the bumper in a little though.
Here's some interior shots from when I was still working on it.
471261[/ATTACH]1959 Ford F100. Monoleaf springs all around. 292 V8, 3 on the tree.
I really fucking like that!
Ok here's mine. Not a 59-60 but a 57. later,Bill
Some really cool looking trucks. Love the Wide-Whites.
Nova, how did you get it that low?
2" drop axle, 4.5" mono spring up front. 6" mono spring out back. Added a "C" notch in the rear for more travel. I run 205/75/15 fronts and 235/75/15 rears. So you could actually lower it more with some shorter tires. But these fill the wheel wells and tuck pretty nicely.
Awesome .... good to know I can still get mine that low without going IFS ...
Dropped axle is definitely in my future as well. I de-arched the springs 3" and it still rides/steers exactly like stock. Did you get any bump steer from going that low? Did you have the steering arms bent to match the axle drop?
