1952 Ford F-1 Truck

This is my first project. Not looking to build a show winner, but rather something that looks reasonably good and has some get up and go. Our '52 F-1 has original front end, a 289 and automatic transmission from a "66 Mustang, original rear end, and original brake system. I think I should put in IFS, disc brakes, move master cylinder from under cab to firewall, and a 4 on the floor.

Does this approach make sense?

There seems to be kits for the IFS and disc brakes. But, is there a reasonable option of cannibalizing a later model vehicle for the appropriate parts?

Thanks for your thoughts. our52ford

I used a 76 Nova clip in my 51...................worked out very well. Of course, with that I went all Chevy for the power train.

This is my first project and it is a 50 F1 not sure how to post a picture but it is at this site.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...%20F1/50F1.jpg

I chose to go with a heidts mustang front end and 11" power disc brakes power rack and 327 corvette motor with a 700r4 transmisssion, and a 9" rear out of mustang changed to 3.5:1 posi rear end. long way to be finished but have been driving it. Moved gas tank to rear and Probe door filler in the rear left fender. Enjoy and do what works for you. and your money and needs. Ed ke6bnl
