I have been reading stuff on this sight for a long time, finally decided to join. I am not good with this computer stuff, so you will have to forgive me. I have my Grandfathers 1960 F100 taken apart in my basement, I am getting started on the restoration. Looking forward to getting to know some of you, I live in Woodstock, GA.
Whats the scoop on your truck, did you tear it down for rebuild or did your grandfather start it? Going for a stock restoration or hot rodding it?
1960 Comet mostly stock, summer DD
1979 Ranchero/Thunderbird 'Thunchero' 390 or 460 powered in the future...
1980-82 thunderbirds everywhere you look
1994 F350 IDI turbo getting a 1959 Mercury body transplant
1994.5 F250 PSD, 5spd 4" rancho on 35's
My Grandfather passed away 12 years ago. Up to that point it was a running driving truck. My Grandmother and Uncle knew how much I loved my Grandfather and the truck, so they MADE me drive it home after the funeral in North Carolina because they knew I would never sell it. I drove the truck for about 6 or 7 years and then parked it because it needed major work. I have completely dissassembled it in my basement, I have the frame sitting on jack stands. I am removing the front Ibeam so I can install a crown vic front suspension (already purchased). I bought a 1995 Mark VIII for $500 with a good running engine and transmission that will go in the frame, along with the IRS. I am going to assemble it for fit, then dissassemble everything for painting. I will take pictures along the way. I want the truck to look fairly stock on the outside, but with updated drivetrain and interior. Sorry for being so long-winded.
