I just bought a 1970 Ford F100 Ranger in the beginning of February for 2,800. It has a 1969 big block 360 with three on the tree and was just looking for some ideas if i should build the 360 into a 410 stroker or buy a bigger engine and a 4 or 5 speed?
2x with john. Here in the San Jose the So. Bay of San Francisco ca. gas Oh the cheap stuff last week was $4.03 at Costco 87 octane. My truck gets 10-city 12 hwy mpg and 14 mpg in 5 gear.at 60 @ 1900 rpm. My truck weights 5,525 the last it was checked for for DMV to Lic in NV. Anyway many guy dream big and some do it but later wished they didn't build it so wild. The Fun wears off paying out so much for gas then when it was just a nice smooth sweet old mans truck. But the need for speed seem to win out when your young. Like having 450-500 Hp and you can only drive 35-40 mph most of the time at 7-8 mpg.. My 2cents have fun with your old classic ..orich
