Wow!, That's going to be an interesting project, be sure to keep us updated on your progress.
Just out of curiosity, was the 'vette RH drive too?
BTW, Welcome to FTE. You'll find there are a lot of good knowledgeable people here.....and a few grouches!
You're probably the first new member of the year (I know, it's already Monday where you are).
It appears to be a left hand drive. I only say this because the shifter seems to be leaning slightly to the left. Or, it could just be in 2nd gear. lol
I picked the rolling chassis up from Pick a part in Ohio, Gus and the guys did a great job packing it and sending it down under, it was LHD, there are custom billet RHD C5/C6 racks in Australia but the price is worth more than what I paid for the F100
The main aim for the F100 is to shed around 400 to 500 lbs from its weight.
Thanks for the kind words guys. I am looking at building a performance F100 that will handle, brake and go when needed. I doing this on a budget so the Corvette drivetrain was the package I felt would suite my needs best. I know there's the Ford / Chevy stuff that people dont like seeing things mixed, but to me its about building a quick truck with what I have avaliable..........
Custom rear chassis 6 x 4inch mandral bent rails (trying to keep the profile of the f100 original chassis.)
Recessed firewall and trans tunnel mods.
Corvette C6 ZO6 brakes,
ZR1 or Rushforth 20x12 20x10 rims
Toyo 345/25/20 275/30/20 tyres
Isis power, rewire kit with touch screen.
Vintage air Gen IV aircon.
These are some F100's with ride height that im chasing.
