Did this swap in my 48 F1. It's not that difficult. I bought a set of patterns for the frame cuts, did the cuts and welded in the whole thing over the course of two weekends. I don't have pics of the installation but can e mail you pics of the completed set up if you want them.

Also, the is an F series truck club in your area. Contact: Fat Fenders F-Series 48-56
430 Gordon St.
Calumet City, IL 60409

Let me suggest that the type of motor installation you want may have an impact on your decision since the motor mounts will come on the clip as will the steering box in most cases. So a Camaro clip will make a 350/350 set up pretty easy. Additionally, RB's Obsolete (see interntet)has a weld in sterring unit based on Mustang II parts. These are nice because there is a whole range of brakes available and motor mounts. The Chrysler give you torsion bar adjustment which is nice for the ride height. Hope this helps.

Bill,

I did a Volare ('86 Chrysler actually) front clip in my '53...the frame widths are different but you can see my install on my home page <a href="http://jniolon.clubfte.com..." target="_blank">http://jniolon.clubfte.com...</a> look in the left column for the article on Volare front clip..

hope it helps..

john
