NEW TO THE SITE..starting my 67 f-100 build

Hey there, like i said im brand new to this site. Found it just researching some info on my new truck i bought last month. well let me rephrase that, new to me its a 1967 f-100. I bought it last month after selling my 54 gmc 5 window and now im going all Ford! I searched high and low for a shortbed for months that was in good shape and actually ended up buying a 1977 f-150 longbed first and was going to convert it to a shortbed. After having buyers remorse and not wanting to do all the work shortening the bed i started looking again and found the 1967 on Craigslist in Prescott Valley. Without haste with cash in hand and a used mountain bike i bartered on Craigslist to sweeten the deal i was off to Prescott to pick up my dreamtruck. I was pleasantly surprised to find out the truck was originally purchased and spent its whole life right here in AZ and i was going to be the SECOND owner. Except for a few small dings it was in pristine shape and all original, even has the factory warranty card and book in the glove box. Its got the original straight 6 motor with 3 on the tree tranny with only 83,430 miles on it. Cruised her back home and started researching everything i could. ive got alot of plans and will post picts and updates of everything as soon as i can find out how to post picts, any help would be greatly appreciated. i think thats enough for now. oh yeah is there a place on here for build threads?? until next time...

Hey thanks Bill. Yes it's true Az trucks rule. No rust!! Hahaha. I'm heading back to junk yard today to pick up disc brakes, power brake booster, power steering pump and power steering gearbox. Found a perfect donor 73 f-100 yesterday. I've also been throwing the idea around of doing the 03 crown Vic swap. They had one of those there with the rear axle, it had disc as well.

My only concern with doing the crown Vic swap right now is time. This is my daily driver and I think that would take me more then a couple of days to do. I could swap out the other original parts from the 73 easily in a few days. Any one done a Vic swap??? Let me know how complicated and the time it took? Thanks. Troy

New parts

Well I went to the junkyard on Friday and found a 73 f-100 with every part I needed. I took both front disc rotors,calipers,spindles,power booster,power steering gear box and pump and all the lines for $230 bucks. The yard is pick a part on 83rd ave south of van buren. They got a good selection of cars and trucks including a handful of 67-79 f100-f350. Took me about 2 hours to pull everything off by myself.
I want to go with the crown Vic suspension in the future when I have more down time and swap the motor and tranny out buy for now this should make the old girl drive, handle and stop better. Hahaha. I'm sorry I still don't know how to post pictures?? Until next time.
