My New Truck.

39 posts in this topic

Have to fly to California in a few weeks to pick it up. A coat of paint will make it look like $1000 bucks.

1972 F100 351C Auto. I have the 72 351CJ Q code engine to drop in as well.

 

I love Mopar but love old Ford Trucks too.

Cool truck. Are you flying out and driving it back?

Yes a friend is getting the title for me and I will be flying down and visiting fixing the truck whilst drinking beer for the weekend then driving back on Sun Mon. Customs exports are closed on weekends and holidays. I have a 1972 Q code 351c that I will be refreshing and putting in the truck.

Yep the rims are very nice and hard to find. No chopping but probably dropping.

Congrats!  Looks like a fun project about to happen.

 

I always preferred the 67-72 Chevy shortwides.  However, I love the older 56 Ford trucks (in canary yellow).

To the Amtrak train to Oregon yesterday... Drove back 10 hrs at 65 MPH. 12.5 mpg (carb needs work) staying in Bellingham overnight and will try importing tomorrow. Exporting is the hard part. Just more red tape....
