Easy there Matt, let's not be too kind to him just yet!

Shame he didn't get the Chevy...just way cooler!

Just kidding of course, the one thing that's different about the Ford is that it looks like a TRUCK. At least you can use it as a parts chaser for when you decide to build a Chevy later on.

Now that is funny!

Jeez, but some of us Chevy guys have a mean sense of humour, don't we? Hehehehehe!

Actually, I wish him well with his build...even if he does use a boat mooring for a motor!

Well, if I ever needed to choose second best, I think the 426 Hemi might fill the bill admirably!

Some of those factory 426's were good for 600 h.p. That'll clear the cobwebs out of your mufflers!

Have a 46 1/2 ton with a sbc 400 mill. Have bucket seats on custom rails topping the gas tank, am 5'11" and it is still a tight fit. Thank God for my tilt wheel coming and going.

Not much room in the engine area either, with a 1/2" spacer and flex fan there is less than an inch between the radiator and fan.

BUT, I wouldn't trade my Art Deco Stove Bolt Chevy for any plain ole "Ford".

Just can't beat the style and looks. Now if I could get it to stop the way I want I'll have my bucket list complete.

Have you looked into disc brakes for it? At least for the front.

...and Deuce was absolutely right, there is way more room inside the Ford, I am pretty sure I can fit in there comfortably if I just get a skinnier bench seat. I almost fit as it is and it has a huge puffy bench in it.

Thanks so much for everyone's advice (even you damn dirty Chevy lovers! (practicing my Ford-guy routine)).

I am off to the search feature to figure out what to do about the suspension in this thing.
Chec out my listing @ richlin2

Ford pickup or Chevy?

Hi Rodders,

I own a 49 Ford with a 351 Windsor under the hood. I never considered a Chevy of same year but I saw one at a car show and it looked real good. I like the way Chevy streamlines their fenders and front hood.

I'm not a mechanic so I look at things from a design perspective. I have tremendous respect for Henry Ford. I liked what he did with making the automobile available for the common folk.

I think Ford set the standard for other car-makers to follow. Consequently, Chevy sometimes made a better vehicle because they simply improved from the Ford pattern and provided better styling accoutrement.

Perhaps we could look at which vehicle, Ford or Chevy has held up better over the decades. Just my two cents worth. BTW, I attached two photos. The Red truck is Chevy. The Green truck is my 49 Ford.

Thanks for the discussion.

Good heavens, not being much of a truck guy I never realized how close the two pickups were in design. There really isn't much difference, is there?

Sort of like all this modern day Japanese iron - or is it plastic now - that's floating around. You can hardly tell one from the other.
