    here is my 52 F3 project

    I have made a few changes that I have tried to keep out of sight to retain the 50's look.

    Original flathead V8
    New 12v 1 wire alternator (would like to make it look like a stock gen.)
    T5 5 speed trans with a stock looking shifter
    New front leaf springs
    Four inch drop front axle
    Power steering pump mounted behind fan - not easily noticed
    Toyota power steering box
    Original steering column, wheel and horn retained for stock look
    Hydro-boost power brake unit
    Stock pedals clutch and brake
    Four wheel disc brakes
    New 16" wide whites - sent the 17" widow makers packing
    New 9" Ford rear-end, geared to match the T5 trans
    Rear C notch with 4 bar and adjustable coil overs

    If your not looking for the upgrades you wont notice them. The 16" rims and tires fill the bigger wheel openings for a better look..... The pic's of the truck are in Pete Clark's shop Dunkirk NY, he has a sweet rear 4 bar setup he developed for the early Ford trucks to lay them low. It's an F3 and the running boards are 7" off the ground.

    Here is my 1953 Chevy-5- window build project working on it 4 months now--was a all SOLID original P-UP--got it to the driving stage around the
    neighborhood-- handles and stops and steers great. Doing wiring and new gauges now, going to run it in the old patina paint look , but it is all NEW quality parts and safe.

    Somewhat technically, this thing actually qualifies under the age rule. I think it's cool. Go ahead and shoot me now...
     
  11. Looking at the amount of space at the bottom to the left of the 3 I assume its a 2 and the curve at the top where it goes downward.

    Here is a smallish update on mine.

    I added a bumper I scored from a HAMBer to hide the later front clip and some chrome-reverse wheels I got from a local guy on the back. I'm still looking for some chrome-reverse wheels for the front, so I am just rolling 2-tone with painted wheels on front. I can't remember where I got that idea.

    This is really really not the place for your VW.
     
  15. <= (thinks quietly to himself, "I wonder how many of those 15,805 posts of zman's are "corrective" in relation to other peoples posts? I know several have come in the past couple o' days.")

    Here's a shot of my '40 1/2 ton stake truck with some traditional MT Rader's (sans spinner caps) and double pinstripe bias ply tires.

    if people could stay on topic, and Terd has asked nicely a few times in this thread he created, then it wouldn't happen. Thanks for being concerned though, you can crawl back under your rock now. :D
     
  17. One of my all time favorite '40 Ford trucks, parked next to a traditional September, 1959 R&C Feature car.

  25. Saw this at Hot-Rod-A-Rama. Wacked way to hard IMHO, way out of proportion. Cool truck none the less.

    I wish zman was a moderator. Seriously. I miss the old days where you'd get run out of town on a rail for posting a pic of your vehicle with drag stars.
