A person who knows and likes the same things I like. Awesome sir.

My latest find. I plan on getting the brown 75 and the blue 72 running and keep as is. The red one and the 2 tone(bed and cab) will be sold as parts or complete as is.
All are 2wd F-250 standard with 390's. The rancher I bought them all from ask me who needs an automatic F-150(1/2 ton) on the ranch. The 2 I plan to get running are original owner until now me.

Nice Truck. My dad bought me a 69 when I was a senior in High School. I sold it a few years later to pay for college. about 20 years later I found it in east Texas setting up to the axles in sand. The 360 was toast. I'm still working on it 15 years later. I've gone back and forth from all stock to giving it a cut and save. I've decided I'm going to put a later model 4wd front clip on it and upgrade the the back end. I want to make it an off road monster.

Are you happy with the 302? That's what I have now and I'm not sure if I don't want to go back to the big block.

Nice. I did the same thing back in 1982 to a 1964 Ford w/ the "Y" block (I think 292), 4 speed w/ granny. No pics left of it though.

No help but I’m looking for a 72 F100 short bed. It’s hard to find one that isn’t total junk and/or priced higher than a giraffe’s back.

Nice looking ride!

awesome truck rebuild going on. Wish I had a shop with space like that for my project. I would have frame swapped it, but that is just me. I drove a 79 ford as my first truck and miss it. Keep plugging along--that thing is going to be a work of art when complete.

It's a sweet truck. Good luck selling, it shouldn't be hard with something that clean!

Question Suggestions

I'm tying to decide two things on mine.

1) Should I replace the cassette player?

2) What color?

I'm going to flip it so I'm trying to anticipate what a buyer would want.
