Hi, I just signed up! I'm new to the site, I've been looking at it for awhile and decided to join.
I own a 1995 f150 with a 4.9 6 which has 260,000 miles on it. It's starting to slowly fade after 20+ years of service.
So now I'm in the process of building a new "old" truck. It's going to be a 51 F1. But instead of running the typical Chevy
or Ford V8 I will be using a 300. The motor is already being built with numerous modifications. I'll post the specs later.
I'm also looking for a custom side cover. Right now I'm in contact with a couple of people interested in making it but
the cost is high. If other people are interested we could put it into production and be able to make it more affordable.
I've seen earlier post regarding the same type of product but the site is no longer available. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Welcome to the Ford Six site Condor F1, that 51 sounds like a great project build. So be sure to also post about it in the big six forum were more site members will see it. Good luck on your build :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

So, work got in the way. Not even sure when my last post was, 7 years or so? Long story short, fed up with politics, had the opportunity to retire and took it (March of 2015). Since then we have been planning our retirement place. So we built the shop first with an apartment. So I have a place to work with space.

So, next is fixing those doggone brakes. They have never worked properly.

See you in the forum.
