My "Hell Racer" It's
Not me. What's in it won't make it less of an Effie to me.
My 49 waiting to complete my T-5 swap.....
Great stance. My neighbors in 83 bought a f1 with 25K on it from a 90 year old man going into a nursing home. Flatty V8, 4 speed, I remember it had the original front tires and only one tail light out back. We would go to our local drive in burger joint in it. Good memories
Realy nice truck, stance is perfect!
A bump to get this thread moving again.
I think I like this body and grill style the best (51?). Id actually rather have one like this than my 62 Unibody. Really love your truck!
Any info on this 4 wheel drive? I have a lot of extra parts I could use.
Since getting the brakes working and getting it running, I've been trying to log some miles in the '54. This week's projects have been working on chasing down electrical stuff that hasn't worked since I have had it.
My work in progress. Lowered the front, waiting on some lowering shackles for the back. Hopefully some paint and bodywork in the Spring.
A friend's F100s. Had a few over the years but never finished anything.
The 48 was mint condition with no rust whatsoever as was the 56. The green 58 was a fixer-upper and the red 58 is now a roller on hold.
Here is some pictures of my 48. The first is the day I got it and the rest are how it looks now.
Here is my 62 f100 unibody powered by a 500cid cadillac

Yep, that's a jag front end waiting in the wings
First post from a newbie but i figured I would post some before pics of my f1 pickups. Two 52s and a 50. Hoping to get at least one nice driver out of the gray 52. Currently have a 57 shortbox that im going to sell or part out to get one of these beasts moving!
sorry for the crappy pics!
....took my 48 out for a drive since the weather has straightened out some...
1955 I had about 4 years ago...
Super straight and solid California truck.
just about finished the brakes on the gray one
need to make up my mine if Im keeping the 223 or going 302
the black ones roof may end up on t as well
Do you have any spec's on this? Ive thought about doing a 4 wheel drive version next.
This was a super simple swap I did in the '70's. I bought a worn out '60 F-100 4X4 and basically bolted everything including the crossmember into the '56. Only thing I modoified was the rear driveline as the '60 was a long wheelbase. The '56 had a 292 and 4 speed so it was all bolt up. Later I dropped in a 390/C-6 and then it got tricky. '56 springs are a little narrower but it all hooks up OK.
Nice truck man!
Here's my daily driver ...
Mine, still waiting on summer......
^Nice^ I really want a '56 some day.
Good looking truck! ('Course I may be a little biased. lol)
