Yup, 69 F250 running a 7.3IDI and a ZF 5speed. The 6-71 in the back was on it's way to a new owner, about 200miles away. I had to load it funny because the steering linkage and oil pan get a little friendly when the suspension is compressed, but it still went just fine and could even run 70 with that load.

Not too bad, but the oil pan and steering need to be in the same space. I am going to build another one here soon, and will put the 60s body on the 80s chassis. As a bonus I'll also get a beefier frame and better rear suspension.

That is a nice bonus. I was going to put a 77 F100 body on a 84 F250 frame with the 6.9l but couldn't get any info on the swap so decided not too.

The Batmobile - '85 F250 XL RCLB 4x4 IDI NA T19 3.55s. ?53,xxx miles (153,xxx? :shrug: ). 50,xxx on a Dealers Diesel rebuild. Rattle-can black, PO never buffed it. Porno red interior (truck had been red), door interior panels were literally disintegrating from sun exposure. Mismatched blue bench seat from a bricknose.

Click the image to open in full size.
^^^^^ The day after we bought it. Had nearly bald 285/75s on steelies. Truck was used strictly on the farm from aprx. 1992. LOTS of body rust, including the cab floor. NO rust on the frame, or the core support, or hangers/perches/shackles. Most of the underside of the truck had a 1/4" coating of dirt. Door and window seals were shot, driver's side window division bar was rusting away. LOTS of rattles. No keys (kept a wing window unlatched in case we accidentally hit both door locks), column cylinder just turns. Cleaned out the ashtray (BLEEEEEEEECK!!!) the other day, and there was a door key under ALL the ashes. Prob. forgotten there 20+ years ago. Locks work like new.

Click the image to open in full size.
^^^^^ $30 topper, $160 rims, new Cooper STs. Still has the DMI sway-hitch bumper. We're just gonna leave the, er... "matte" finish.

Found water in the cab, WTF? Wet around the kick panels, toward the firewall. Cowl seal didn't look bad. Reached down the air spaces on either side inside the fenders (my wife has long skinny arms) and IIICK! they're both full of mud! Right up to where the sliding-panel vents feed from those spaces. So water coming in the cowl had nowhere to go but through the vents and into the cab. Another legacy of it being a field truck for 20+ years.
