      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    TWIST, This is my kinda Build I have one of these started and never finished it. But now you just re kindled my spirit for this.
    Attached are a few pictures of my cab.
    I am not a scholar when it comes to FORD but it is my MY # 1 Favorite Truck brand and Model Choice.
    Looking through all my Ford reference material I can not find anything indicating the 317 was available in 1953,
    I do find where the 317 was offered in 1954. I think the engine in the Ford C-cab will work and would not be considered unreasonable for your truck.
    However, 1953 offered many different wheel and tire options for this truck- 22 x 7.5 inch wheels cast spoke or disc-- 20 x 7.5 inch rims and a two speed rear axle
    10,000 pound max capacity, air brakes, overdrive tranny
    Hey, Its a model so I dont like getting caught up in the details, I generally build to what I think looks good. but I do appreciate and respect your desire to be period correct.
    I dabble in resin casting tires and wheels and have a few on ebay now.
    My new wheel mastered for this truck is a period correct five bolt 10:00 20 soon to be cast in resin.

    I have a 64 Ford F750 started ( resin ) and a 60 Ford 1/2 tow truck that I need to finish before I can get back to this one-
    What type of body will you be putting on this truck?
    I am not sure yet what to do with mine

    It looks great- cant wait to see it finished

    Not one to cause a stir, I did as I was asked without question, But not without looking at the way others were signing thier posts.
    I did see that others are using thier proper name in thier postings
    I trust all is well at this point
