Luckiest guy in the world. 1972 f100 ranger

Biggest find of my LIFE. Today I found, what i believe to be a 1972 f100 ranger xlt in EXCELLENT condition cosmetically. Not a single rust whole or dent. The engine is either a 360 or 390. It has been sitting for 8 years and obviously not running. But for the $350 I'm paying for it, that doesn't matter.lol. I'll post pictures tomorrow. He was going to send it to the scrap yard next week. What a save.

Ok. Ive got some pics. Here is the crappy thing. The very day I bought it, some idiot started taking the trim off it to scrap it. I have all the trim pieces, but they are a bit beat up. Can anything go right? And I checked out the engine tag on the right side of the engine. Its a 360. If the majority of the engine is good, itll likely be turned into a 390. Pics are in this album.

The truck has now made it to the garage to begin work on the engine. I was going to turn the 360 into a 390, but I think I'm going to just hop up the 360. Hot cam, different intake and carb, and am toying with the idea of a turbo...
