I wish I had that much time and money

I can't wait to see it done. It looked pretty nice just on the flatbed. Are you going to ditch the camper top?

Yes the camper was the first thing to go it was hiddious. I actually thought I'd have it on the road in a month when I first got it because it looked to be in good shape but low and behold after I got into it a little there was this then that then before I knew it I was down to the frame and deciding what motor I wanted. Its definately been a learning experience as far as how much these trucks can get into your wallet especially a crew cab, 4 doors of rubber and all the goodies on and in them.

I've got lots more pics, if anyone is interested just mail me.

Your truck is looking good. Very nice.
How did the new firewall cover work out?
This warmer weather and seeing a project like yours reminds me I need to get working on mine!

Thanks Alan, the firewall cover came out pretty nice and fit well. I did have to do some trimming around where I put the A/C, heater unit. and it was a little stiff but fits just right,I purchased mine from DC. Your crew cab pics are almost the same as mine except the color. the inside of these during construction becomes a storage container till your ready to do something inside. Give me a hollar if you have any questions as to where I purchased some of my stuff.

460 Crew,
Glad to find your post right off the bat. I usually hang out in the Expedition and Aerostar forums.

I came here looking for any info anyone can provide regarding a 1971 4x4 Crew cab I am looking into purchasing. This truck has been a one owner, well cared for truck with 171,000 miles on a 390 engine, everything mechanical works with little evidence of unusual wear and tear. The steering is a bit sloppy and there is some associated front end vibration at speed. Otherwise, it seems very solid mechanically. Being too tall to garage, the truck shows evidence of a life spent outside - faded original paint, some rust holes at the rear cab corners and along the bottom door edges.

Any comments regarding this model from you or other knowledgeable members would be greatly appreciated, especially pros and cons to consider. I'm very excited at the prospect of possibly owning an ancestor to the Expedition.
Thanks in advance.

Aero, these trucks are tough and getting rarer and rarer so if this one your talking about is in good shape then buy it if the price is right. If it does have anything wrong with it its usually an easy fix unlike newer stuff. The other good thing about the crews is that most of the parts are readily avaliable in the reg cabs except for a few specialty parts. I love mine and it's not even done yet, and I 'm sure I'll never sell it. If you have any questions just give me a hollar.

Glen, the A/C,heater'defroster combo unit I purchased was from Old Air products for around 1000 dollars but that included everything to put it on and every part it was like another 40 dollars for the adapter plate for the Saden rotary compressor to go on the York style brackets. I bought the complete package deal but you can also order stuff seperate to keep stuff lookin stock inside or outside. I opted to do this setup because everything on it is new and very available and the inside unit replaces the heater unit and is actually smaller,and also it blows harder than most units. Installation was fairly simple and ends up looking clean. The vents are mounted under the dash as you can see and still leave plenty of room to get under the dash if need be.If anyone needs a phone number just mail me.

If the frame is not bent or rusted and the floors are in great shape (cab corners are minor) then I would go for it. The NP435 or T-18 will last almost forever along with the transfer case. Rebuilt motors are cheap.

460 Crew and recarbo,
Thanks for the supportive replies. When you suddenly run across a truck you know little about, and the window of opportunity is small, this type of help is certainly appreciated. I made the owner a very generous offer and am currently awaiting his decision. I am keeping my fingers crossed that shortly we'll all become better acquainted on this site. Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

Hey aero,
The rust is one of the easiet things to fix. I use an air cuttoff wheel and cut the entire rusted area out ( around it an extra 1/2" or so) then I trace that onto a piece of 16ga sheet and cut it out. then simply stich weld with a wire feed. Grinding and stichwelding over and over until its solid. You should have seen all the rust patches I had to deal with. Glad to see some old pre '73 crews on the road. I see lots of later models, but rarely see the early models. I just think they have a better classic look.
cheers.

With a well tuned engine and no power takeoffs you should see between 8-12 MPG.
Congrats on the truck!!
