Need help from anyone, wanting to get 50 to 56 ford truck to restore somewhat hotrod (new motor, brakes, tranny, frt. suspension etc)what are the pluses and minus's between a 50,51,52,53,54,55,56 as far as being able to work on thanks Mike
mike... you might want to post what part of the country you are in...its several thousand dollars to haul a car all the way across...
Thanks for the advice I'm new to this site I live in the kansas city mo. area and I'm wanting to do a lot of the work myself just trying to see what year might be the easiest to work on?
I'm in central Colorado and I found a pretty good 48 F1 just west of Fargo ND. Price was right and shipping didn't break the bank.

Welcome to Classic Trucks Harley Mike46: When they are that old they are all a PITA. I kid you not my friend well it took him 20 years to do a restoration on a 53 Chevy 2dr. Alot of that was his fault and some because he just wanted the cheapest way out.But like Wayne said it is expensive to haul a car (and your almost in the middle) across the country. I hope you find what your looking for. Hemmings has some books that may help you get the correct book for locating what you want. Try their web-site. www.hemmings.com Good luck if I come across the book I'm thinking about I'll pass it along on this site...Good Luck..Bob
Thanks guys for all the help I have a 53 lined up 4 hours away that sounds pretty good no rust on body w no engine or tranny which sounds good because it might B easier to do
Good Luck Harleymike46
HarleyMike46The Hemmings I was talking about is. Hemming's Motor News. If you go on their web site they will send you a free copy. When you get your truck you may need parts. I've been getting this publication for more years then I can remember.Good Luck.Bob
