Thanks for choosing my truck ROTW!

Truck is a 78 F150 with 60,000 original miles, it still has its original paint! When I bought the truck it had a 300 I6 with the NP435 4spd. It has a 4" BDS lift with 35" BFG M/Ts.



I wanted something with a little more grunt so it now has a 410hp 351W crate engine. I also put a centerforce dual friction clutch in to handle the extra power.




The interior is in very good shape yet, it now has some cool ford floor matts and a B&M T handle shifter
