I have the blue '49 Ford 2 dr that had the top (pass side) crushed when a tree limb fell in an ice storm in '07. It needs rebuilding. I have a '53 F100 that is currently apart getting re built. This '56 will probably become a rat sedan. It is a 6 cyl stick, and will get a 302/C4. NEW FLOORS R necessary. It is a two owner & hasn't been run since 1972.
Robert good answer to the polaraziton of the external voltage regulator. it is done the exact way with the early model Harley Davidsons. As you stated if you do not do it it will suck engery instead of creating it . I hope mary Jo Carrillo realizes that every time you disconnect the battery it must be done ? Bruce Buckhalt
