So, I went and bought another dent. 77 F250 Supercab. Has a few issues but compared to all of the dents I have bought over the years, nothing really. Biggest issues are rust at top of door jams under rain gutter. Gonna have to read up on that fix. It has the nice Jade interior. Dash pad is in bad shape and seat is dry rotting. I noticed it had the wrong temp gauge in it and went to pull dash and it started crumbling in my hands. Luckily I had a complete instrument cluster. Was great to be able to use some of this stuff I had laying around, especially with the wife helping. Gives me a pass for having parts laying around. Temp gauge still doesn't work. Now for the pictures.
pics 3 and 4 are signs of previous engine fire. You can also see the messed up and mangled heater controls. Apparently someone stole the stereo and tore up stuff doing it. Have a new mounting bracket, got the dash bent back, cleaned up an old dash bezel I had laying around and them found out the bezel I had laying around had aftermarket ac and my truck has factory ac. If anyone has a bezel trhey want to trade for a round duck ac bezel, let me know.
Anyone got an Idea of the towing capacity of this bumper hitch? The tube goes through the bumper and connects to another tube that is welded to the frame.
Got to wait for bonded title process to get done, then I can take her on the road. Can't wait.
