Hi everybody. Aaron here. My 16yr old son and I went and got a 56 F600 Friday. 272 with holley 2bbl. Changed the points, condenser, and a few other essentials, poured some gas in the carb and she took right off. Oil is perfectly clean. Going to get the fuel system cleaned out, see if she'll hold water and see what happens. Its a 4 spd synchro with a split rear. 17000GVW. 


Glad to have found you all here!

The body is remarkably sound. Very little rust. Frame is not twisted. 51,xxx miles. Probably 85-90% complete. Someone put a sticker on the dash that said 7500lb tare and 31,750 loaded! WHAAATTTT? Heavy! The kid and I will spend some time cleaning all the fuel system out and getting all the hoses and the belt replaced. See if we can get it to run consistently and warmed up. So far just a few seconds running on a bowl full of fuel, but it didn't knock and the valvetrain sounded good from what I could hear in that short of time and over the super loud fan. 

Once it's running right we'll see about the clutch and trans. Looks like a rear main leak, no idea on trans/clutch situation. Going to try to hold off on any 'real money' until we know what all is needed. Gonna be fun! I'm sure I'll have tech questions for you all.

What’s the plan for the truck, Bogner? How are you going to use it? Work, fun or both?

Maybe a little of both? I do contractor work. Remodeling and such. Some woodwork. Maybe put some tool boxes on a flatbed? Hard to say. Probably just roll around in the beast once in a while, hit up some car shows with my friend who has a '36 Ford sedan with a flathead. Mostly it's something for my son and I to work on to help him learn how to work on things without computers.
