Marko,
This was the find of the millenium. I went golfing, as I usually did everyday until my beautiful daughter was born in Dec 95, on the Monday before July 4, 1995. The truck trader comes out every Monday at 12 noon. I didn't get back until 2pm that day and was late finding the magazine. This truck was at a Ford Dealership about 45 miles away in Mississippi along with the other car( 1971 LTD limited NICE CAR) they traded for a new Crown Vic. He became ill back in 1991 and was unable to drive it for 4 years, they moved from Arizona in 91 and the truck sat. They needed something dependable to drive to Memphis to the Dr for treatments every week.
I called the dealer when I saw the picture and told them NOT to sell it. I made it there and unbeknownst to me, Another salesman sold the truck. I met the guy who bought it and offered him 500 more than he paid for it........He said no, we exchanged numbers and I asked him to call me when he got ready. In March of 96 he called, after I pestered him every month, said he was coming by the town I lived in and wanted to know if I was still interested.......DAAAH, of course I was. We agreed on a price and I have been thouroughly enjoying it ever since!!
My first vehicle was a 71 F-100 2 WD that was my unlce's and I am too sentimental to have looked for anything else.
The bonus!!!! When I first saw the truck in person it was surprisingly a 4X4. The rest is history and a nightmare to my wife. If I run across another truck that has been inArizona as long as mine in Tennessee, I'd have to probably call you. THANKS!

mARKO,
I will look around here in a few salvage yards. One of the nice about Tennessee is we use little to no salt on the roads. Are you in Vancouver, BC? What a journey! If you come to TN, make sure you stop by and see Elvis.....he has been spotted recently! Thank you, thank you very much.

If anybody is interested in the wide 71 Ranger trim parts i took off my truck they are for sale. They are not All in the best shape but they can probably help someone. The tailgate panel is dent free!! Some make an offer and Pay freight and I will ship them someway. I am going to make mine into a Custom. If anyone has a good set of custom bed badges not in use, I'd be interested in them. Stu

While I can't remember specifically, I drove one of these trucks for a couple of years when I worked for a garage in Colorado back in 1969. It ran great, was very dependable and the body seemed solid. The original owner still has it with the original 312 Y-block engine -- it still looks good!!!

I am looking for a 2 BBL Ford carb (NOT HOLLY!!) from a 1982 Mustang GT to put on my 71 F-100. This carb has the large power valve on the bottom
of the carb. The original 2100 Autolite looks the same except the power valve on the bottom. Anyone in Truck land have access to one, please let me know ....I can rebuild it no problem so a core will work OK!!
Thanks!

I also have the wide Ranger trim from my 71 including a perfect dent free wide tailgate trim piece that is aluminum with painted black letters(Not wood grain) If anyone is interested, let me know, we can hash out a price later. I am making this truck a custom because I hate the trim.
Most of the pieces are pretty staight , there are a few which are dented, but most likely in the hands of a talented craftsman, could be straightened.

I sufferred a similar problem. It turned out to be a little black box under the dash that makes the beep when your seat belt isn't latched or you leave the keys in the ignition, etc. I was suprised that it was drawing power when the car's ignition was turned off.

The Unibody debuted in 1961 and was only produced thru 1963. This was a styling change somewhat in response to the Cameo but more in response to Chevy's more stylistic trucks overall versus *just* the Cameo. Ford had also hoped to reap increased structural rigidity and lower assembly costs.
This didn't happen as the unibody design, while asthetically pleasing, was not well received for a couple of reasons. First, it was different. This was before trucks were used for pleasure - back then they were for work.
Remember that even the styleside design was fairly new at this point and many flaresides were still being sold. This meant Ford had to make two different cab designs. In addition, flexing between the cab and bed was a problem and, therefore, a 4x4 unibody was never produced. This led to the mismatched cab/bed setups whereby a 1960-style bed was mated to a 61-style cab. Ford even offered this arrangement on 2wd trucks in 1963 as the unibody was being phased out. A new bed that matched the cab would not arrive until 1964. To make matters worse, the unibody design suffered from rust between the cab and bed due to water being trapped there. So you can see why it only lasted 3 model years.

Having said that, they are somewhat rare and unique and I HAVE ONE. It's a 1961 (same year I was born), the first year. It's a stripper that was not originally equipped with even a radio. It has the 223 "Mileage Maker" Six and a 3-speed. I really wish I had a "Big Window" Unibody but that is another story.

FYI somebody mentioned they drove a Unibody with the "original" 312 V8.
This cannot be because the *only* V8 available in a Unibody is the 292 Y-block V8. The 312 is also a Y-block but was never offered in the 1/2 ton trucks.

I've had several problems with my 89 Bronco II (2WD). I've gone through 3 drive shafts in a period of about 1.5 years. I've also had a new engine at 136K miles, and I've had my transmission rebuilt twice between the time the new engine was installed, and the present (Once for bearings, and once for the OD gear shattering). From my understanding the OD gear Shattering is also a fairly common occurance on the Bronco II. If you want a sport utility I'd look more at the Explorer's or Full size Bronco's.

From: "Chad Pasma"
Subject: Hi
To: FORDTRUCKS lofcom.com

Hi from the great white north.
I joined this list because I just got a 1978 F100 2wd for only $130.
It has a 351M with C6 transmission and has 115k kms (70k miles).
The front end on the body is good but it needs a box.
It also has original genuine Ford topper.

I would like to rebuild the motor for decent power (2 barrel sucks) without the added cost of buying a 351W or 351C. I have been advised that I would need 4 barrel Cleveland heads and I would like to get an Edelbrock intake and Holley 600 carb. I'm hoping the bottom end is good so I can rebuild at minimal cost. Any recomendations or advice is very welcome.

How can I tell what rear-end my truck has? 9-inch would be nice...

Can anyone tell me the best place to get a good box for my truck?
Would it be easier to find one in the States for it? (I'm planning to go to Michigan in the next 2 weeks)

I have a line on Daytona buckets for cheap. I'm building a budget truck.
Personally I'd rather build an S10 with 350 but this is much cheaper so I'll stick with it for now :)....
