I love it. Are you keeping it green?
By the way, there might be a few guys on the 67-72 chevy truck forum that'd give you good money for that bed.
Ya know that's a great question. We've tossed around a few ideas, and the only colors we've ruled out is black and red. My 79 is going to have a fresh coat of red on it soon and I don't really want them to match. Green, yellow, and orange have been discussed though.
2001 Ford F-150 XLT, Super Crew, Frontier Bumper guard, orange painted trim and a 5.4L
1979 Ford F-150, Camo paint, 3 in. body lift, 315/75/16 hellcat wheels and a 400
1967 Mercury Cougar, Custom yellow paint with a chromed out 302
That looks like a very good project. I look forward to seeing more about your progress.
By the way I have a 4 door parts truck with a fair shortbed on it if you need it for the other project. Your red parts truck looks very good too.
So the 4wd frame is done. Small issue that we didn't plan on: the bed and cab don't sit level. We accounted for 2 inches of difference that we accommodated with lift blocks but it actually looks like we ended up with 4 inches of difference. I'll post some pictures tomorrow and see what y'all think.
We built the frame from a f250 front and super cab f150 rear, that was also the donor of the bed. Thought we calculated correctly, but oh well. Y'all know how it goes. Looking forward to share progress with y'all tomorrow though!
Picked up a relatively inexpensive 429, got a trans and transfer case. It's starting to come together!
