Ok, I googled it. Seems like cheating to me! I guess that's what comes with being a fifty year old guy raised before the "net".

The driver was Barney Oldfield. HOWEVER the "New 999" was driven by Ford himself to a world speed record that stood for a month. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_999

I guess I have the floor?

Or does scr8pin F100 because he guessed Henry Ford who DID drive the "New 999"?

Ahhh, take it scr8pin, give us what you have!

In 1953 Ford's F-100 pickups were the last year to get the favored flathead V-8..In that time, if your F-100 had a V-8 engine, then you also had a nice emblem proudly displayed on the grill of the truck with a nice "V-8 emblem"..My question is if your truck did not have a V-8, but instead an inline 6, what was on the grill then?

Ok, go!

No need to google that, a four pointed star.

LOL, I know the 55 better as my Dad had one growing up (which is still owned by my brother) and they had the 4 pointed star!


But the 53 had the three pointed star! I never knew that!


I still get the floor? I guess so, we gave away the answer.

How about this, what is the big difference between a 1933 and a 1934 Ford drivers door? The difference can be found on both the front doors. I just wanted to clarify I mean the front doors.

Nope, both "suicide". They will in fact interchange one year from the other. You will however want to swap them in pairs because of this difference.

Three window, five window, AND four door, they all will interchange from 33 to 34 of course if we are talking swaping it with another like body as far as numbers of "windows and doors". They all had this one (at least this one) difference.

ok, I'm gonna take a far fetched guess, but I will admit that I checked out a couple of pics...the only difference that I could find was that the top and inside of one door seemed to have a roll to it..like it was rounded at the top...

Am I close??lol

Yes the door looks a little different at the back of the window, why? Hint: The change made in 1934 was used thru 1939.

'33 did not have the slide back window vent mechanism. That's my guess.

You got it, and the floor! The 34-39 Ford had a door window that slide back about an inch before it started to go down making a vent at the front. This was dropped in 40 when they went to a conventional vent window.
