Intro, and 1975 parts truck in Atlanta

Hey guys - quick intro to those I haven't "bumped" into yet. Just got a 1970 bump that was in great shape but I can't help but tinker with it a bit to make it better. I live in Atlanta (near downtown Decatur) and if anyone needs help with anything locally let me know. I have a lot of time during the week.

I am going to do the disc/power brake swap, so I just picked up a 1975 2wd F100 SB XLT w/air, C6, 3.00 rear, and power steering for a parts truck.

The front brakes, cargo light, radiator, and wheels are spoken for. The engine is pretty much reduced to a 352 block (not the orig motor) with misc parts (so the motor/accessories are being parted out as well).

Lights, tailgate, bed (seems solid), doors, fenders, hood (has small dents), cab (roof is dented, floor is solid), bumpers, dash, a/c, headliner trim, dent side trim, grille with XLT, side XLT badges, power steering, and diff are all available, to name just a few things.

Not planning to ship anything unless it's small, so this is going to be a pick-n-pull type setup for my Atlanta friends.

First Off WELCOME !!!!!
Great to have you here. I just approved your request to join. Sorry I have been running behind on alot of things since I was gone to school for 5 weeks.

How much you want for the rear end and the springs? In the market for a tailgate, the headliner trim, and grille. If they fit my 79. I will come get. Let me know

Thanks - enjoying the site!

Side note to all, I have plenty of tools so no need to bring a toolbox to remove parts.

I need to keep the leaf springs, I want to lower my truck and it has the flex-o-matic springs so I need to do a swap.

But the rest of the rear end is available.

Headliner trim - it is all there - needs refinished. Same for the grille.

I will have to figure out what reasonable prices are - or make me an offer.

Here's some pics

The body is pretty solid - but the cab roof was trashed by a tree branch and would be very difficult to repair....wasn't worth the effort to fix it up, and I have pulled a lot of parts off for my truck so it has served it's purpose.

Hood is very solid, but it got a few dents from the tree too.
