Hey Steve, John here I worked in boston for a while as an Ironworker Local#7. What kind of shape is the engine in the 70 in??? I am interestred thanks.
76' F-250 ranger XLT 4X4 390,Edelbrock 4bbl,hedders,36'" swampers and dana 60's front and rear
2000 F-350 Power Stroke diesel 4X4 SCMT set at 60 HP till the gauges come in, aFe air intake, and a 5"ex
Well, the 360 engine is a bit tired, but luckily enough for you.. I have a 390 which I bought a year ago that has only 30,000 on it after being rebuilt. The engine is for sale as well! It has a factory 4 bbl intake on it. The guy I bought it from "told" me it ran fine, It has good compression (I did it manuallly!), I also have some new parts for that like a new Truck oil pan, new pump, timing chain set, and the gaskets.
Let me know if you are interested in that....

"To Conquer is to Live"
Hi Guys, I'm Ernie. I live in Billerica. I'm a firefighter in Chelsea and have been driving fords since 1969.
My first Ford was a '57 Country Sedan Station Wagon which was a blast throughout high-school till I totaled it.
My next one was a '62 Falcon with 2 speed auto and a 160ci 6cyl engine (wish I had that one now $$$)
My first brand new Ford was a '73 Gran Torino
My first Ford truck was a '90 F-150
I now drive a 94 Explorer Sport with a 5 speed stick
And I just bought a 1947 Ford 3/4 ton Pickup that my son and I will be restoring over the next few months, so if any of you guys see a '42-'47 pickup being parted out I'd appreciate a shout. I especially need a new bed, tailgate, rear fenders and running boards.
Guess I agree with your philosophy Steve... real trucks ARE built!
Hope we can have it finished in time for the meet.
