Cleanish '49 F-5


I think that the general idea is that most all of these need a 12 valve Cummings or something similar in them...

What about the axles, brakes, steering?

Something that you could really tow with for 5-8 hours, not just to the tractor show on Sunday's

Just do a cab swap on a wrecked '99 f450 if that's what you want?

Axles are usually super low geared in the 6.XX and 7.XX. They usually have odd big 5 or 6 lug patterns with 20" 2 piece wheels. 1 piece 22.5's are hard to find but exist in some of those patterns. Or you've got spoke (dayton) wheels which are a pain in themselves.
Using modern axles usually have the wheels sticking out a bit.

Brakes are big drums that stop ok but finding parts would be a mega pita. Usually no brake booster on any of the really old stuff. At least untl the 60's.

Most likely no power steering on anything before the 60's and even then it's usually just an option.

Eh..Might look a little odd on an f450 chassis. Going from a big straight frame truck with 40" tires to a glorified pickup truck. Not to mention f450's aren't exactly the best setup things drivetrain'wise.

There's a 55 2 ton in the Chevy section that kept the original frame and just swapped everything else for newer better parts.

I guess it depends on what old cab you get for fitment.

Maybe a IH 4700 cab chassis that's been wrecked and put the old cab on

That is about 20 minutes from my house, seen it going down the road, he did a good job on it, it looks sharp... like someone said too bad not a diesel...

"BAD to the bone" indeed, with a 335 in it! Especially if it's a 'wet hole' 335. You can make those 335's HOT. Get an original bumper and the only thing making it any 'badder' would be twin sticks. 4X4 or 5X4. But, a Fuller 13 speed is a great transmission
Kinda reminds me of that old Pete in "Duel". Great movie.
