Hey all, I'm new to the forum, just decided that I want to kind of create a journal of my 64 f100 build! It's a 2wd long bed. originally had a 223 with 4 on the floor. Swapped in a 390FE and C6 out of a 67 thunderbird. The engine runs amazing! only replaced the oil pan gasket so far, otherwise it's untouched internally. My dad managed to find an autolite 4100 that he traded an old spreadbore holley for.
How she looked when I first got her.
How she looks now.
Autolite 4100, baby!
Definitely a work in progress, but at least it's driveable. Next up is ditching the old dana 44 in favor of a 9" rear end.
video of the truck running. the exhaust is very temporary (two old glasspacks held up by wire). When I get some time and money I'm going to run a 2.5" X-pipe into thrush glasspacks and exit in front of the rear wheels.
yeah, the rest of it kinda looks like crap right now, but it sure does run well! cleaned up the carb while rebuilding it, and the entire air cleaner assembly was only $35 from jegs. hell of a deal, if you ask me.
