I've always liked '48-'50 F-1s. Sold a nice project '48 a few years ago, should've kept it.
...you must mean 51-2 cab?...nice truck.
your good......could you tell by the armrests?
You've got the large rear window & 51 or 2 dash...
Cool truck! Its good to see that your dash hasn't been cut up over the years. Btw who made that shifter?
My 42 Chevy

Sweet...what's that color?
Binga thats one fine looking truck!
I posted this back in January and since then I rattle-canned the truck in Rustoleum Oregano satin. It doesn't fade as fast as the Duplicolor primer. I guess I got inspired and added an Almond color around the window.
I also found a better chrome front bumper from Craigslist, bought a repop chrome grill from an acquaintance - doesn't fit all that great but it pleases me. Installed the new door handles, mirror arms, yada, yada, Anyway...here's a couple shots of my '55:
I really like the way your gauges look in your avatar!
Here is my 56 F-100...
Really cool truck , nice to see the big discs on the front , just curious how long that chassis notch gonna last ?
Dumb update on my truck
Trucks looking real good. I like the color combination....wouldn't have guessed that was Rustoleum.
I always thought your truck would look cool with a 56 grill...
No idea, there is a thread here http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=590850 on the build
Cool build. From the thread:
"I'm not sure what the color is as I bought some miss tinted color from a mate and then had some more color matched then added the two together."
That's gotta be the best accidental color ever!
My favorite shot from the thread:
Thanks...i know wherr is a 56 grill im gonna try to buy it now
I like the coe with the teeth in the grill better.
it goes better with your new bumper modifictions
Well you did say Trucks, I know I will catch hell because it is newer, but it was a basket case when I got it, if it makes any difference it will be used to tow my old cars around.
Either way I'm pretty happy about how it turned out,
Thanks nitrobrother I'm more than happy with the color and how the truck turned out.
