  • 53 f-100

    Finally joined after reading the posts for a while.
    I am building a 53 F-100 pickup with the R2.8 and a 6L90 for a fun shop truck that will be a daily driver. It sits on a custom frame we made with C4 suspension front and rear. The R2.8 should have enough torque to do some hauling, and is light enough to corner decently with the Vette suspension.

    Sounds awesome! My in-laws have 2 '56 Ford trucks so I can't wait to see some pictures.

    A local shop built this with an 8-speed ZF and the owner said it drives amazing.

      I'm really looking forward to seeing this one as well as more vintage pickups coming online! I'm beginning to have those vivid dreams about driving my '65 J200 which are motivating me to get out to the shop for those late nights!

        Its slow going right now, a lot of this is 'learn as you go' for me, but now that I have the transmission adapters in hand things will go faster, and I will post pictures.
