Hello Everyone

I am new to this so bare with me if you will . I have had many cars and trucks in my life time but never a modified 1949 F1 pick up. I just bought it from an older gentleman who knew nothing about vehicles except buy them and drive them. Anyway this truck has a 305 stroker chevy engine and trans. I just found that out by tracing numbers. Now it has disc brakes in front but the mystery is that it has a 6 lug bolts both front and back so I know this is not a mustang front. I'm thinking 3/4 truck, anyone have a guess ? I'll paste a photo as sonn as I figure out how . Thanks

Are there any numbers cast in to the differential or a metal tag attached somewhere? Maybe post some pics?

No F1/F2/F100/250 had 6 lug wheels, they're probably the same application as the disc brakes.

Typically Chevy didn't either except in 4wd applications. Initially was thinking maybe they set the body on a Chevy frame. Still quite possible that is the case with a disc conversion on the front unless there were some 6 bolt applications I'm not remembering.

I took it to get new tires 15" and they said a tie rod was bad but could not do anything with out knowing what front end it is. The caliber has only one marking 2 1/8 2113-1. And that doesn't help. Since it has a 1985 chevy 305 with power steering and disc brakes I was thinking maybe an 85-86 chevy truck front end as well. I believe the ck had 6 lugs. I guess I need to know would an F1 fit on that truck frame. I am going to bring it to a front end specialist as soon as I can and see if they can figure this out. I would love to post pics but not sure how. Soon I hope.

Okay I just got a piece of the puzzle, I found rims to fit exactly from a GM colorado/canyon/Izuzu 2004-2008 6 lug offset 15x6.5j . also while cleaning the engine compartment I noticed on the steering box a metal tag completely covered in dirt that read 5826250 and the name toyo. So I am assuming this is part of the GM / Izuzu partnership that was going on until 2016. Hopefully I will get pics on soon, this is a good looking truck just a mystery.

Wow! That's beautiful. I hope you don't mind, but I posted your pictures from your gallery, so everybody can see them.

The Isuzu connection sounds more likely to have the 6 bolt rims. A possible quick way to check is look at the frame. Open C-channel was common on domestics, while the imports used a more rectangular tubular style. Get into the later 90's and 2000's, that became less true.
