I have for sale my 1953 f100 short bed project truck. Its an extremely solid and straight truck! I painted the frame with ppg single stage with hardner chassis black. I sanded all the body panels and primed the fenders, hood and cab of the truck and blocked it. There's no rust at all on the truck. the roughest part of the truck is the bed there's some small dings here and there on the bed of it. I painted the truck twilight black metallic from hot rod flatz. the interior and the grille of the truck is two toned with diamont platinum grey metallic base and diamont clear. the inner fender panels, the floor pan inside and out have been undercoated along with underside of hood. im selling as a rolling chassis. the bed i've put brand new braces and bolts stained and cleared both sides of plywood board, brand new factory style tailgate. I have brand new bed extensions front and rear that have not been put on the truck but will go with it. all parts were bought through mid fifties ford company. ive got brand new black carpet that goes with the truck as well. Its got brand new set of vision legend 18x9.5 wheels with a set of Dunlop tires. the wheels are 5x5 bolt pattern because that's the only style of rim I could find that was an 18 inch so its got 4 wheel billet adapters. Ive got a rack and pinion I'Il send with the truck as well. I have the factory radiator that goes with the truck as well. 4 brand new wheel cylinders go with the truck. ive got the drivers side window but all the glass and both wing windows is needing replaced. only reason im selling this truck is because ive got to many projects and don't have the time to finish this one. this truck is all factory stuff except for wheels tailgate and the bed rails. Everything for the truck ive got is all pictured. This truck is a project still. Its just a rolling chassis no motor or transmission. I had planned on putting a fuel injected sbc with overdrive trans but like I said just have way to many projects going on at once and have to let this one go. The truck will go with a bill of sale only. ive got a lot more pics and can get more just let me know what you would like to see.If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 6205211447.

According to Consumer Reports, the automotive brands that stand out in the minds of car buyers are, in order: Toyota, Ford, Honda and Chevrolet. This news comes after the magazine polled its readers, asking them to take into account vehicle quality, safety, performance, value, fuel economy, design/style, and technology/innovation - which are the factors that car shoppers are most influenced by.
It's important to note that this award is only about perception. In other words, it's perceived quality, not actual quality. "Often, perception can be a trailing indicator, reflecting years of good or bad performance in a category, and it can also be influenced by headlines in the media," said Jeff Bartlett, Consumer Reports deputy automotive editor.
The brand that made the biggest jump in perception amongst Consumer Reports readers is Tesla, which posted an impressive 47-point gain to finish in fifth place. Subaru is also notable for finishing in the top 10, despite being one of the smaller manufacturers doing business in the US.

The ongoing heavy-duty truck battle between Ford and Ram is showing no signs of slowing down. The Blue Oval is trying to remove at least one point of contention between the two brands by testing its 2015 F-450 Super Duty using the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 towing standard, which Ram also uses. In the new evaluation, the F-450 is rated at a max towing capacity of 31,200 pounds. That's an identical amount as under Ford's own, previous test.
"We leave no doubt with customers that the F-450 pickup truck has best-in-class towing of 31,200 pounds - whether tested using our own internal towing standards or SAE J2807," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development, in the company's release.
At the same time, Ford is also changing how it calculates the F-450's payload. Instead of using its minimum curb weight as before, the brand is now using the truck's base curb weight. The revision lowers the pickup's rating to 5,300 pounds, compared to 5,450 pounds previously. The company said in its announcement that the reason for this is "aligning its payload rating practices with other manufacturers to make it easier for customers to compare vehicles." General Motors made a similar switch for its pickups in August.
We've already seen plenty of what the Geneva Motor Show will have in store for us in less than two weeks, but most of the confirmed debuts that were announced so far have generally been luxury or performance cars. Ford, on the other hand, will be showing off a couple of its new family-friendly models for European buyers to enjoy.
On the larger side of things, the full range of Tourneo vans (shown above) will be on display, including the introduction of the new Tourneo Courier model, but Ford will also be showing off the all-new EcoSport crossover, which is based on the automaker's Global B platform and will be positioned beneath the Kuga, better known here as the Escape. The subcompact EcoSport was originally unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show last April.
