    Thanks paco. This is how I fixed my 57 Ford panel truck,(pictures below), and a couple of others. My goal with this 60 is to build it completely from salvage yard pieces. So far it is coming together very nicely. The grille came from a 2 ton truck that had a fairly fresh rebuild on a 4bbl engine. The clutch was out and it was obsolete equipment so they junked it. I like saving pieces that others throw out.


    Too far gone for some... they can always be fixed, if you are willing to work at it.

    LAG - I dig what you're saying. I did like how you sorced the big window back cab side (& roof) with the front. I would never had thunk that!! I'm sure I'm not alone. This has been a great week of learning ...

    Can someone give me a rough estimate on the width of their bench seat? I am curious if a 64 Chevy c10 seat would fit that I have available to me

    The seat is about 55" wide and 23" deep. The bolt holes on the floor are about 43 1/2" apart.

    It's not a spacer for steering arm, they are to relocate the tie rod down lower to clear springs, when you turn

    C shaped, $50.00 So-Cal

    Angle of drag link NOT being on same plane as rear part of spring, is what gives you "BUMP STEER"

    Awesome link! Inspires me to get back on my '59. It's been on the back burner for years.

    Beware of the dropped axles out there... I (and two others I know) had camber issues with the one that has a tube with "forged" ends.

    My first F100. Its a 59. Plans and parts list are growing, and the truck arrives from Tx tomorrow.

    How reliable is the 292 Y block ? I know nothing about them. It has a stick on the floor.

    292's are good little engines. I had an exhaust smoke issue with mine... it also leaked a lot of oil from the valve covers. I cleaned out the oil returns (plugged with goo) on the heads, and it all cleared up. I hear the "Y" blocks are infamous for that. It then ran like a top!

    maltman - very nice. Looks as if someone took very good care of the truck. A little de-altitude will look killer.

    I would stay away from after market axles. Sid's Nostalgia axle is the way to go!

    Another recommendation for Sid. He does a lot of axles for these trucks. I have one for my '57.
     
  24. Picked one up for my '60 today!!
     
  25. Did you get any further?

    My latest. 1959 short box with 223 straight six and three on the tree. Does anyone know if a 1960 grill will fit on a 59?(I have a nice chrome 60 grill)[​IMG]

    Nice truck! I am a little partial to white...how was your truck lowered? I really like the stance.
