Our Favorite Links

Below are some of the web site that have been the most useful to us for finding parts, getting information, and everything else that is involved in this enormous project. When we first started rebuilding this truck, we had absolutely nothing to work from and had to find everything from scratch. So we hope that this will help make someone else’s search a little easier. If you know of any other good sites, please contact us, and we will add the site to this list.

  • Classic Pickups
    Home of the great American pickup.
  • Kanter Auto Products
    We got all the parts for our engine here. They had a complete rebuild kit for about $1300. The quality was excellent!
  • Custom Autosound
    A custom radio for your old car or truck, and it fits into the original radio holes! I haven’t ordered one yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
  • Mac’s Auto Parts
    Quality parts for early Fords (1909-1970’s).
  • Classic Truck Shop
    Lots of good information and helpful articles.
  • Vintage Auto Parts, Inc.
    A large variety of quality parts.
  • Recks & Relics
    A large parts catalog and lots of useful information.
  • F-100 Supernationals
    Website for the annual Ford truck show in Pigeon Forge, TN. This is a huge event, and from what I have heard, it is just amazing.
  • Sacramento Vintage Ford
    This has been one of our primary sources for parts throughout this project. They have just about everything you could want, and usually have the best prices.
  • C&G Early Ford Parts
    Another good parts source.
  • Ford Truck Enthusiasts
    This is just a great site – be sure to check out their forums for lots of helpful info.
  • Doc’s House of Bolts
    We got a complete bolt kit from them, along with a simple-to-install EZ-wiring harness.
  • Early Ford V8 Club
    So what if I don’t have a V-8? This is still a great site with lots of great info.
  • Classic Auto Parts
    Another excellent source of parts for us, formerly Obsolete Ford Parts.

    Hi,
    I’m very happy to find your site, you guys are great help to people like myself who has no idea what he is doing. I bought a 1952 ford f2 v8 yesterday 8/21/09, needs lots lots of love and time.
    I have’nt tow it to my garage yet so i don’t exactly know what is going on but i’m sure that i’ll need your experience to help me find my way out in this project.
    I also very agree with you that people turn this beautiful classic cars and trucks their customized toys but i also think it’s nice to add couple things such as power steering or power brakes what do u think?
    How long did you guys take to finish it? so far all i know is; i need driver side window, rear window, no keys for doors or ignition, some rust not too bad, full window moldings,interior is a chicken cage, engine has’nt started for 8 years, no bedliner, right front headlight, sideview mirors, etc….
    I hope you don’t mind if i keep in touch with you and ask for your advice during my restoration process, i also want to photoshoot in every step of it before and after so if you like i can share all of it with you if you like to add another project ford f2 truck on your site.
    Thank you.
