    Thanks guys, I finally got around taking couple of decent pictures, as the old ones were pretty poor.

    I just picked up a 63 F100 last week. I will post up some pictures as soon as I get some H.A.M.B friendly wheels on it. I am in the process of intalling Speedway headers and dual exhaust as I type this. Has anybody installed them on these trucks and had to trim the trans crosmember???? They hit and if I trim about 1/2 inch they will fit, I calles speedway and all the said is they shoutl fit, LOL.

    This is the 63 I picked up a couple weeks ago. It is a driving project vs my 57 that has been sitting 20 years. So far I did headers and dual exhaust and rebuilt the 3 speed column shifter. Next is fix the cab mounts and slam it on the ground via a axle flip on both ends. I will probably change the rim color and put the white walls out and some spyder caps are on the way.

    For those of your running wide white walls, what are the specs on them with your stock F100 wheels? I am in great need of new tires for my 66 and plan to run WWW tires on the stock rims but not sure what is the widest I can run and which bias ply one to go with. Any info here?
    Also are you guys running 3 1/4" wide whites or what?

    Thanks in advance! Keep the pictures coming!

    The thread DOES say "Slick 60s F100s", so if it's a 1960 I think it qualifies... :D

    The term "slick" refers to a specific body style not a year. I'm sure you are just busting the guys balls though! It is a nice truck though.

    Randzz...to get a 'useable' bed...probably put a bed in there..ie...raised bed, then maybe get you some sideboards that can be put into the stake pockets...kind of like a flat bed truck.
