Hi folks. I'm new to this site. I'm hauling off an old 68 10 wheel Super Duty and am wondering what would be worth keeping. On the list of item I am for sure keeping are the scoop, emblems, tach dash, browny box. I believe it has the fabled 534 but don't know if I should scrap it or not. It has the high rood cab, I believe it to be solid and straight. Is any of this worth holding on too? I hate scrapping good parts. If I could bring in the truck complete I would but I'll have to remove it where it is in 3 sections. Any advise would be helpful. I'll also get some pictures today.
Well, the cab nor the doors are as nice as I remembered so to the scrap yard it will go. Judging by the lack of response to my thread there is little to no interest in these engines as well. It would make an excellent and different Rat Rod engine, however the weight could cause issues. I'll just keep the "cool" stuff and scrap the rest.
I did scrap it. It had a manual trans. I did keep the "Super Duty" emblems for the purpose to sell. I took the column support strap off to try to lower the column but didn't keep it, dang it. Between the crappy weather and the rat crap all over everything I didn't take off much. If it would have been nicer I surely would have. I have no idea what the emblems are worth. They appear to be pit free, I need to clean off the white over spray and see for sure. firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be more than happy to send some pictures.
Feel free to make an offer. I haven't seen any others to gauge a value. I also got the windshield trim, hood latches, visors, hood reflectors, shutters with the temp actuator tach dash (sort of)and head light bezels. I think that's about it. I don't want to turn this into a for sale thread. wish it would have been in a little better shape, I like stuff on the unusual side. I've even caught some grief from chevy guys for scrapping it. The rats were the worst part. not to mention vandals.
