I’m planning on putting a Corvette C4 suspension under the ‘56 F-100 frame. I found a company Flatout Engineering, that offers brackets for doing this and I just have to find an ‘84 through ‘96 Corvette suspension.
Looking on EBay I found a great deal to get both for around $800. This serves me well because shopping around for an IFS I’m looking at spending around $1800 just for the IFS. Throw in the IRS at another $3000 and I’m way into the red for this chassis.
Here’s what I picked up from EBay.
Now that I have the suspension I can hang it under the frame and figure out the ride height. But first I need to build the frame.
That’s the next project.
I’m a little late with this first post but I’m going to start writing about the 1956 Ford F-100 project that I’ve been working on.
I purchased the truck in November 2009 through a winning bid on EBay. After renting a U-Haul trailer and driving over to Grand Prairie I picked up the truck and unloaded it over at my shop.
I didn’t take pictures at the time, but I did end up taking some pictures so I could get it covered under an insurance policy.
This is what I currently have, but here’s a photo of what I’m after:
This is the Chip Foose F-100 from the Overhaulin’ program on the Discovery Channel.
I’m going to use part of this blog to talk about the truck and all things related.
