I'm a 16 year old man look ing to buy a '53-'56 ford f-100. I have questoins that a cannot find answers to where i live.

1.when looking for a truck what are somethings to look out for. (rust,windows,fenders)?

2.I have a 351 engine that I got out of a 84 LTD station wagon. is there any problems that others have run into or know about when changing engines in an old truck. Can I also use the rear axel and rear end?

3. I will be buying a mustang II front end, i already know that it is alot better to get 11' rotors but do you need power rack and pinion?

4.I plan on useing this truck as my everyday truck so are 2' dropped spindles too low?

Any repy would help me alot thanks!!!!
