Our 53 F-100

Hobbs, NM June 1984, bought it for $1200.00

Fort Worth, TX December 1999 road worthy. Not finished, but is a daily driver. Loving every minute too.

Me the wife and our youngest daughter install a reverse hinge on the hood.

Smoothing out the fire wall. Yes using the wifes mouse sander.

Thinking about a third break light.

Still thinking

The last project my dad and I worked on together before he passed away was a '53 F-100 just like yours. We did a complete frame off and back in those days (30 yrs ago) we bought many of our replacement parts from Southern Cal PickUps and Panels. I doubt that they're still in business. Anyway, the 53-56 F-100s are fun and relatively easy to restore. GOOD LUCK with your project. PS: Are you running a Flat Head?
