Ok, I have a '67 F100 that came with A/C. Probably dealer option because the
dealership was/is in Burleson, truck was made in Dallas, and the A/C Company
is in Fort Worth. It STILL exists too! Name of it is Clardy Manufacturing
Company. My A/C has a plate on it that says Cust-O-Matic. If anyone needs
more info about this company, e-mail me, I can get you a phone number,
they're not on the net though =(

$200 sounds real good if it is in good shape. (no rust/big dents) The
tailgate alone is worth that price.(if in good shape)You can't buy a bed
that vintage around hear for less than $500 for one that is rust free.

Both are pretty cheap. But you still get what you pay for. On tip if you
want to improve the quality of the paint job would be to prep the truck
before you take it to Maaco. Remove all of the trim and anything you don't
want painted (tail light lenses side marker lights, grille, trim, etc).
Something you could do over a weekend and will go a very long way to
improving the results of the paint job.

Sell!?! SELL!!!?! We don't do no sinkin' sellin' 'round here!! Sorry
couldn't resist. ;-) I would paint it whatever color I wanted and let the
next potential owner repaint it later if they didn't like it.

If you were going to sell it right away (which you are not) I would
get the cheepo paint job if it really need pain. Since you are going
to keep it a while you might want to think about a better quality
body shop. doing a color change is not that easy. Think about
having purple on the outside and still green on the interior. If
you have a green dash pad or other parts that you would need to
change to match as well as paint the interior.

Just $.02

P.S. how do you type the symbol for cents anyway? Shift? Command?
Option? What's the key strokes

I found a 1970 F250 Camper Special for sale today. It was a trade-in at a local used car lot. The body looks to be in good shape, but I didn't look it over really well. It has 16.5 rims in need of new tires. It has an FE under the hood with an auto tranny behind it. Power steering, power brakes, and an under-dash ac unit. It also has a bed mounted tool box and an extra heavy duty rear bumper. If anyone is interested, contact me offline at kendrick mddc.com

A 292 has the distributor in the back

dist rotation is CCW Ignition timing is 4 BTDC for std

Hi Folks,

A question for all of you. Feeding the 460 in my '77 F150 4X4 is cutting
into the upgrade budget. Does anyone run a full time propane set-up? Talking
with someone who does the conversions he said that there may not be a unit
big enough to feed a healthy 385. Does anyone have any real world
experience? Any help or directions to links would be appreciated.
Thanks,

I had my wisdom teeth yanked Friday, so most of this weekend I have been sitting round the house doin nothing except dreamin about trucks and cars (like most of you guys out there, I imagine). Anyway, this might be the Vicadin talking, but I got an idea. My father has an 84 mercedes w/ a 3 liter in-line 5 cylinder turbo diesel. Good mileage, diesel is cheaper than gas, and that little hunk of german iron really gets that car haulin pretty good, and that car ain't light. So I started thinkin maybe one of those would go good in a 1/2 ton or a ranger or something. Am I the only one who's thought of this, or has anyone tried/looked in to it? I know, it would be destroying the purity of a good ford, but it seems like it might work. Thanks for letting me ramble, and let me know what you think.....
