First off... my apologies for the poor quality of these pics! I took them shortly after I finished the model in 2005- the only camera I had back then was a cheap little Vivitar point-and-shoot digital. I stumbled onto these images today while clearing some old memory cards. The model has been in my grandfather's possession ever since it was finished, and he's owned the 1:1 for over four decades.
My skills weren't what they are now, so I just did what I could to convert the AMT kit to '59 specs, at least visually. I seem to remember robbing the quad headlight bezels from an AMT '53 F-100 custom grille, and I made the '58-'60 style side spear trim from scraps of plastic. The 1:1 has a square fuel tank on the driver's side, but I used the kit-supplied round one, and left off the passenger' side tank. The white cab/black chassis/red bed are faithful to the 1:1, it is missing the "Maple Wood Farms" lettering in red on the doors- I just couldn't pull that off at the time. His truck is a Custom Cab, so it has a white steering wheel, as all the early Custom Cab C-Series trucks did early on.
I left the 534 engine and Allison trans intact, though the real truck has a 292 Y-block and a manual transmission. The 1:1 usually had solid sides on the stake bed- it was used to haul grain to the elevator, but after they stopped lifting trucks he got another truck with a hoist and this was promoted to "stock boy" duty... hauling seed and fertilizer to the field. It was sometimes used to transport old tractors- back when his health was better my grandfather almost always had an old Fordson in the shop being restored.
Like my grandfather, the '58 is semi-retired now, it spends its days in a shed with some of the other trucks and tractors he's used/restored over the years.
