Here are some pics of my 56 F-100. This was my Dads truck. I'm trying to get it back on the road and Im almost there.

Where can I find a windshield wiper motor that wont make me have to get a loan?

I'm not sure how much you were getting quoted, but we just got one from Bob's F-100 Parts in Riverside, CA. We actually traded a door and some other parts for it, but I believe they go for 147.00.

www.bobsf100.com

A great bunch of people!!! They have a ton of used parts also.

Give them a call, and they will send you a catalog.

By the way, you truck looks GREAT! I may be getting a 56 all to my self, and my Hubby is getting rid of the 55 in favor of a 55 Panel. Hope you won't mind if I ask you some questions about your truck, such as the Chop top!! That looks awesome!!!

Thanks for the info on the wiper.

Dustin, The electric wiper motor and triangular mounting bracket are the same on 1956-1960 trucks. You can probably find them cheap on the '57-'60 trucks because nobody wants that series.

Thanks.

I finished up my new steering wheel for it today. I used a hub cap center to make the horn button.
