    Default 1956 f100

    So we've been working on putting the lt1 and 4l60 out of my 93 camaro into a 56 f100. Figured I'd try a build thread.

    A little back story on the project: I bought the camaro 5 years ago or so. It had a salvage title from a wreck but was already fixed, rotted bbk shorty headers, and the guy i got it from had put on a spohn k member and lower control arms. He said he was getting all kinds of noise out of them and was ready to just sell it. So i bought it.

    I put in a cam and exhaust, after that priorities changed and i drove the car very little, maybe have 500 miles on it since in the past 3-4 years. A house and a marriage later i was ready to sell it.

    The former owner of the shop i work at recently retired and was ready to tackle the truck. It had been sitting in his garage since the 80s. It had a FE 390 and fmx transmission. He wanted fuel injection and overdrive, and i wanted to sell the camaro.

    Stock cam back in and motor together (mostly). Seats test fit, look pretty good i think. They came out of an 05 stratus that came in with a locked up motor, owner decided to scrap it.
