Found this in a neighbors garage and bought it for $1000. Pretty good shape. Iam in the process of trying to figure out what motor it is since he didnt know and the vin says it was a 6 and thats not whats in it. The block is stamped 352 so could be 352,360 or 390. Ill just have to measure the stroke. Anyway iam bored and just felt like sharing until all the parts start to show up at the door.Photo

I've read a lot of things saying that their sheet metal stuff like fenders and hoods aren't quite OEM quality, but the things that I have bought from them have seemed to be very good quality, especially for a "driver" as opposed to a concours restoration. They've got so many of the little parts, like the switches in the door frame that activate the dome light that I would have otherwise probably tried to scrounge from Pick n Pull.

Sweet bumpside!!! Longbed? Manual or auto?

I've seen some nice late 60's/early 70's Fords turned into ridiculous long travel prerunners.

Luckly this things been in a garage in california so all the metal is perfect minus a few dings. No body rot anywhere. I used them to order weather stripping and some interior stuff.

Yeah long bed. Can close the tailgate with the bikes in. Its an auto.. I use to have a 68 f100 farm and ranch special. Also had a 390 with 3 on the tree. Loved that truck.

I popped the valve covers off in the process of pulling the heads to measure the bore and stroke and found that it has a leaking head or intake gasket. Lots of milk. It has a holley 4 barrel, edelbrock intake. So thats couple less things ill need. Photo
